I brought company from out of town here for the first time & we all thought this place was the greatest ever! We ordered the O'Riva Pizza & Cookie Pizza for dessert & they were out of this world! We are all still talking about the food. I had heard many great things about Oreganos but had never been here. I will be returning often & bringing all of my out of state friends as well! The restaurant was a bit noisy-that is the only thing we didn't care for. Just fabulous food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ordered both the deep dish and the thin crust plain cheese pizza. The children took just one bite and spit it out. I threw out both pizzas uneaten including the salad. The 2 pizzas and salad dressings were very salty. I should have bought a box of Morton salt for less than the $50.00 I paid for the entire meal.

This is an excellent restaurant! Of course it's boisterous, the tables are close, the lines are long, because it's an EXPERIENCE, like MANY great restaurants we clamor to visit in the Valley. With an amazing menu of neuvo Italian cuisine, a stellar wine selection, and a charming atmosphere, there's a reason Oregano's has never had a sparse crowd. I can't believe the negative reviews I'm reading at the Gilbert location (one of my favorites). Quit being so cranky!

Please overlook these cantankerous posters and visit - just look for the bustling crowd and air of homemade crust! Delicious! A fabulous time for anyone who doesn't suffer from agoraphobia.

Love you, Oregano's!!

Pros: service, atmosphere, food

Cons: cranky posters on this site...

I eat at this Oregano's often because of the tasty food, fun service and atmosphere. The experience was awful today! A salad took 45 minutes to come to the table - waitress tried to convince me the beef takes additional time- maybe to slaughter. I have the same salad (which is normally fantastic) a couple times a month - and it is always served pronto. Today I shared my salad with my lunch date and we both noticed the meat had a funny taste, but never said anything. It wouldn't have mattered as our waitress was busy doing something other than serving us. Both myself and lunch date ended up with nausea and stomach cramping. I called the restaurant to inform the manager. I didn't mention the poor service - only expressed concern for the food tasting funny and stomach pains. I didn't ask for $ back or anything like that. He didn't bother asking for a number or name. He actually seemed preoccupied - probably filling in for the waitress that served me today. If this was my first visit to Oregano's... it would have been a last, ever!

Pros: Normallly great food and fun service

Cons: Sometimes the wait is too long- something about the beef!

The wait is usually long, for food and seating. They can over season. The food is generally good, but i don`t see the big deal. I feel like the food was supposed to be better, but they didn`t really try.

Went with teenage kids (2) and wife. Lasagna was just foul ... poor tasting.

Calzone was over cooked and too much seasoning/salt. And these were the favorites .. which took 45 minutes to get.

Small table for 4 ... small plates for the huge calzone you get ... and it was a chore to get extra napkins.

Won't go again ...

This past year I tried Oregano's pizza. It was so good. My kids love the cheeses bread and the warm chocolate chip cookie that they serve at the end. If you are ever in the area you need try one of their locations.

Horrible service and food. Our order was messed up. When the manager came to talk to us, he acted like a pizza cookie dessert would solve the problem. What would have solved the problem was if he was not completely arrogant. Maybe they dont get complaints often, but the should take them a little more seriously.

Wow! Is this place to die for. First it is a great atmosphere. We have been on the outside in 100+ heat and were comfortable. It's in downtown Gilbert Quaint and Quiet.The service is awesome.The food? Well, food is great the pizzas made to order and off the menu. But You Absolutely can not leave without dessert. The Pizza Cookie is, worth every penny, every calorie every savoring bite!! A must when going to Oregano's.

Although my husband absolutely loves this place, I am sorry to say I cannot say the same. The food is good, the deco I love. But it seems there is always a huge waiting list, they don't take reservations, and their specialty (the one everyone goes there to have) takes 45 minutes to make.
So unless you are willing to spend a good hour waiting out in the blazing heat, and then wait another hour to get your food, this is the place for you.
Again, the food is quite good, but I am not convinced it's worth the wait. Cannot imagine bringing the kids here, even if they do get to play with a little pizza dough.

They use some seasoning, it seems like in every single dish. I can't figure out what it is, but I don't care for it at all. Have tried Oregano's several times, pizzas and pasta dishes. I just don't like it. I don't understand the big deal and the huge wait they always have. There are other great places to go, we won't go back.

The atmosphere is wonderful and it is a great place to take a date. As far as the food, the have the best pizza and great pastas. Sometimes the wait can be really long and their estimates can be off by as much as 20 minutes. But all in all it is worth the wait.

A group of us went here to meet up and enjoy some good pizza. Apparently the Italian sandwiches are absolutly great. I was needing something on the lighter side so I got the brushetta. The different part here was that instead of toasted bread with a tomatoe mixture, I recieved a fully cooked version that was similar to cheese bread with tomatoes and basil all cooked together. This took me by surprize at first, but it was really good. I totally recommend going here for a layed back time with good food. It was a bit of a wait to get the food due to it being busy, but worth it.

Pros: Good location, plenty of parking

We have tried Oregano's at two locations and the food is fantastic. The service is always fun and the atmosphere on the patio is a pleasure. We both love the pasta dinners, any of them will do but we are partial to Alfredo the dark with chicken. I have had most of the pasta on the menu and can say that all of them were off the charts. Big portions and a box to take the rest home. The pizza is good, thin crust and full of your choice of toppings. Salads are huge and fresh. The PZookie is the finishing touch. Melted cream over a fresh baked cookie dough in a personal pan pizza dish. So rich its hard to finish. Our friends have always requested we meet there for dinners but I must caution you....GET THERE EARLY....there is always a wait...but well worth it.

This place has such awesome food that there is always a wait. They don't deliver so be willing to pick up. The authentic Italian fare is so flavorful. The staff is fun and friendly. If you have the time, try the Deep Dish Pizza - it is sooo worth the wait. Their unique dessert is the Pizooki (pizza cookie) comes highly recommended. Our family of 4 gets out the door for around $30 (without alcohol).
