Bein' as how I'm from Chicago, the smell automatically brought me inside. Cheezy-garlicky yummy smell from a block away, so I chose the Lasagna, my date got the Angelhair Pasta.

Now for the taste ... BIG MISTAKE, as the sauce is LOADED with Rosemary, so the entire thing tasted like PINE needles. Overpowered even the garlic! Trades with my date, and the same story ... so loaded with Rosemary it tasted like PINE-SOL !

What the heck?? It's in the sauce, it's in the garlic bread, it's in the ricotta, in the baked Ziti and sprinkled all over the platter. At LEAST they could have WARNED you, all you would be able to taste is PINE. I don't even know if my FAVORITE ingredient was in the sauce, OREGANO !

MAYBE it's just me, but growing up in Chicago, I have NEVER tasted so much PINE flavor in Italian cooking.

Pizza is average at best. Coming from NY I don't seem to understand why everyone raves about this place.

It's ok

I don't know what to start with, the food, ambiance, service, menu! Everything here is top notch. The food in original and fresh to order. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The outside Patio is wonderful with a true Bistro feel. We take family and friends here often and the family style servings are always a great option. Try this restaurant and you will definitely be hooked!

I ordered the stuffed pesto sausage pizza today. It was so bad that after half a slice, my wife and I threw the rest of the pizza out. It was so oily and salty - I just can't imagine why they even have it on their menu.

I've been to this one on Camelback several times before, and I've always felt the food was above average, but this was terrible. Stay away from the Pesto!

This has to be one of the top 3 pizza places in the entire Phoenix area. Our favorites off the menu are the Oregano's Favorite salad, the Italian Gold wings and a thin crust pizza. Gotta try it out.

I can't say enough good things about the food at this Oregano's. It's a great location with good staff. Prices are very reasonable. Parking is fairly easy to deal with. I'll be stopping here again!

Oregano's is known with all of the locals as one of the best restaurants in town. The portions are huge and the prices just right. The food is excellent - whatever you chose to order.

Oregano's has original Chicago style pizza, deep dish or thin. There is always a wait because it is so well known. Great family experience. Definitely worth the wait!

Oreganos Pizza Bistro has some of the best pizzas around. The location is convenient, the service was good and everything we have ordered has always been delicious. THere is a lot of business clientele at this location, so lunch hour is very crazy. Come to eat early or late for lunch or there will be a wait.

Great pizza, great salads, great sevice. First time we went there they gave us a free desert. One of the best pizza in town, only problem is everyone knows it and somethimes has long lines. You have to go at an off peak hour.

We frequent Oregano's On Camelback quite often and I have to say I have yet to find a pizza place in Phoenix that will beat it. Being from Chicago I am VERY picky about my pizza. Oregano's sauce and crust(s) are what make it. They also give you many options for your pizza toppings (Try Meatballs, Sun Dried Tomatos & Banana Peppers).
If you aren't looking for Pizza but want a good Italian dinner this is your place too. Pastas are great and they have some of the best salads.

We loved it!, our first time trying oregano's we fell in love, especially the desert (choc cookie with ice cream). The pizza is by far the best we have had in Arizona, would definately recommend this to all my family and friends. The staff is very friendly, as a minority I can tell you that we did not feel we were left out because of minority issue (Asian Indian) we were treated with same respect and great customer service as rest of the customers. Will go there many many many more times.

Having been doing the pie circuit of late and coming up empty handed, we decided to try Oregno's Saturday afternoon, after the Fiesta Bowl Parade (12/30).
It was a good ike from Central Ave but WAS IT WORTH IT!!!!
The place would remind you of a pizza place in New York or in Little Italy in a major city.
Service....outstanding! Despite the place being busy were tended to right away.
Carmen was our bar server and what a personality! The other service staff was equally friendly.
We had a thin, medium size pie with roasted garlic, carmalized onions and sausage, extra crispy.
We got just what we asked for...cracker thin crust, great sauce and toppings to die for! We ate the whole thing, including the outer crusts whcih is generally a no no with us.
The menu is extensive and what we saw coming out of the kitchen was mountains of food! No pretentious presentation here....here's your large plate of food....eat it!!!!
January 1st we agreed to try it again to see if it was consistent. Right On!!!
The basic pepperoni & pepper was a masterpiece, and even though we couldn't finish this one, the cold pizza was as good as the hot one later on!
This place is really huge so if you see a lot of cars in the lot, don't be discouraged. Inside there's an eat at bar, inside table seating, an outside bar and outside seating!
Too bad we won't be in Phoenix after January 31st......but if the one is Tucson is as good, that'll be our new haunt, even IF it's 75 miles away!!!!

Oregano's is one of those places you bring your out of town guests. I have yet to be disappointed by any Oregano's in the valley. The Big Rig Pasta wakes me at night with cravings. And it's difficult for me to dine here without experiencing the Pizookie...even at lunch. It can be tough to find a great restaurant that is affordable, but Oregano's has done it. Yum Yum YUM!

A group of co workers and myself work interested in trying out this eatery, based on listed reviews. However, we could not get past the poor srvice (attitude, unfriendly, poor customer service) to even experience the meal. When we called to inquire on specials and seating, the person over the phone guided our decisions to eat elesewhere. He basically suggested, "we were not wanted" there. Try at your own risk.

I have been in Phoenix for 11 years, and have been searching for a pizza that could rival my all time favorite Paglia's (prounounced Polly-eyes) in Grinnell, Iowa. Yes, hard to believe, but there's just no pizza like the ones made in good old Iowa, until.............Oregano's. Thank you Oregano's is all I have to say. It tastes just like Paglia's!!!! It's almost enough to bring a tear to my eye! Wow, it's so wonderful, and I highly recommend it. The music and atmosphere are great too! If you check out Oregano's you will not want to eat pizza anywhere else after that!

This is with out doubt the best dessert in the city. When ever my wife and I go out to a dinner we alway end up here for the fresh baked cookies and ice cream.

It is served hot out of the oven with ice cold ice cream and a chocolate sauce.

It is to die for.
