Best original pizza! – A fantastic celebratory restaurant! My DH and I love the personalities of the servers and bartenders...your every wish is their command! Favorites: antipasto salad, calamari, "The Lady is a Scampi" entree, the exceptional variety of pizzas, and of course, the pizza cookie dessert. Barbra Streisand reportedly loves the Oregano's in Phoenix, and said so during one of her concerts in Arizona!!!! Thank you for such a wonderful restaurant!
Worst pizza I have ever had – Where do these people eat that loved this pizza? After a 30 minute wait in the lobby, we were seated in the half empty restaurant. We ordered pesto bruschetta and a pizza. The pesto bruschetta was large, delicious, and made with high quality bread. The 14" thin crust pizza came about 18"-20" (we were only charged for 14") another 30 minutes later with a blah, too thin and too crisp crust, excessively salty sauce with the toppings diced as small as possible(canned most likely), smelled and looked like a chuck e cheese pizza. It smelled and tasted freezer burned. Very disappointing. The slivers of cilantro were zig zagged(chopped fresh cilantro doesn't look like that), I have never seen anything like it... It is the worst pizza we have had out to date.
everything on the menu is delish. – my favorite thing to get from oreganos is the oreganos favorite. its a huge salad with everything you can imagine on it. so yummy. i also like to start off with an order of hot wings, they're the best in town. great place to go for lunch.
Great grub, great price, fun atmosphere – Really good, fresh food and great prices. For what you pay, this is very good food. Great fun semi-noisy atmosphere, which really matches the decor, the food, and the service. Be sure you order the Chocolate-chip cookie dessert--it's yummy. Buy a T-shirt for 5 dollars...they are really cool.
Food is outrageously delicious but get take out to avoid the wait. – This is some of the best Italian I've had in a restaurant. There are long waits because the food is made FRESH unlike some of the mediocre national chains and because it's so good people just keep coming back for more. But there's a simple solution...call in your order ahead and get it to go. I've never been disappointed by the pizzas, although I think the pasta dishes (such as Alfredo the Dark, a spicy alfredo dish) are the unsung heroes of the menu. The cheesy garlic bread is not to be missed. If you insist on eating there, I suggest going as early as possible and don't go hungry!! In fact, you may want a light snack before you go. At peak times, you could be looking at about a 2 hour wait. It will be worth the wait, but for those of you not so patient, I insist, take-out is the way to go.
I don't know what all the fuss is about... – We had a group of 5 and were all in a great mood until being seated. Even while waiting an eternity outside to be seated, we were lauging with a few other groups of people waiting and sharing drinks. Then we were finally crammed into a very small corner near the bar area. The waiter said he'd be back in a second to take our order, but instead, continued to flirt with a few girls at the next table. We finally got our drink orders taken, then our food orders were taken sometime during the next 40 minutes. Three of our group kept getting bumped in the back by people trying to scoot by our table, and we are not even remotely large people. Our drink orders were messed up, while our pizza was greasy and cold. All in all, it was not a good experience...until we left!
Editorial Review by Emily Zietlow – Created in honor of owner's father, chain serves Italian fried potatoes, Cajun chicken pesto pizza and baked sausage sandwiches.
GO GO GO GO GO – I have been to this restaurant several times. Either with local friends or out of towners and everone has a great time. Service is ALWAYS GREAT. The food is wonderful. Just expect to wait. However they take care of you even while waiting. GO GO GO
Very Noisy, Very Busy, Very Tasty – The food is excellent and I have tried several of their entrees. The dining space is very small and very noisy. Often a long weight. Love the food!
Great Pizza! – Oregano's has the best dish deep pizza in town! Along with their wonderful Bellini's, great atmosphere and upbeat staff, you have the best place in Tucson for a fun evening!
