Our first visit was our last visit. The food is absolutely terrible! We started out with their version of Calamari. Now I know where the expression 'mystery meat' comes from. While the thin crust on the Pizza was good, you'd have to be a certified Salt-a-holic to eat it. Really. There are far better and less expensive places to eat.
have been here quite a few times. Always try to get to Oregano's when visiting Tucson. Excellent service, great food. They have a great meatball marinara sandwich, which, when ordered full size, is almost too much to eat. Overall, a quality restaurant , good food, good service attenative managerial staff and priced right.
Love this place!.
Great atmosphere, but does get a bit crowded.
The food is to die for!
Pizza As It Should Be.
We have been going here for 3 years after being introduced to Oregano's in Phoenix!
Great pizza. both deep dish and thin crust!
Yea, there's a wait; but all good things come to those who wait!
Waitstaff is cool and professional!
Haven't been there in a while but GOTTA get back!
Okay pizza, not worth waiting. This place is okay if you want pizza and some entertaining stuff on the walls to keep your kids busy. But it's definitely not worth a 45 minute wait outside for a table, slow service (since the place is always packed) and a bathroom that smells a little less than fresh. The prices are kind of high for what you're getting. This isn't gourmet pizza made with organic cheeses, after all. The parking lot is a nightmare -- there just aren't enough spaces. And the "outdoor" seating area is just a bunch of folding tables set up on pavement. This is definitely not a place to take a large group. Try Sauce instead.
Good for a standard pizza joint. Everything was decent except the pricing was way out of line for the food we ate. We would definitely go back if they cut their prices in half. It just wasnt worth it for the quality of food we ate.
Not sure what people really see in this place.. THe food is average at best, its always a pain to get in.. It doesnt really make sense.
I happen to know that most of what they prepare is just frozen food they are heating up. There are a some good places in oro Valley to check out that really change your mind about ones like this.
stick with pizzas and salads. If you like old time Chicago style thin crust pizza you will love Oregono's. I have aslo found their salads to be generous and very edible. I tried the lazana and had to ask where the noodles were. I go to Oregono's for pizza and salads and find the food quite good when I stick to these two items.
Overrated. Oreganos is definitely over rated. Their food is average and we can tell most of which is precooked and frozen. The pizza is similar to that at peter pipers pizza. Low quality ingredients, terrible crust. The service also is terrible. Its obvious most go here because there isnt much else around speedway.
Salty, slow, unhelpful.
The first time I tried this place it was busy, and took a while for a thin crust pizza to arrive. Nice and bubbly atmosphere, though. Unfortunately the pizza was SO SALTY that it was difficult to enjoy.
Having heard that their stuffed pizzas were better, decided to give it another go. Unfortunately, they claim a 45-minute wait for the pizza, which combined with the wait for the table, would make this unattractive for those with children, or anyone reasonably hungry. A request to order the pizza in advance, to save the wait time, was met with a very straightforward "No, we won't do that for you." Not the kind of friendly help that makes you want to go back.
