This was my first time here and I really enjoyed my meal. Options for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. I have eggplant quasadilla. Soooo good. Thinly sliced and lightly breaded. You have got to try it. The atmosphere was great. There was a party/group in the back room and I had no idea until I went back to use the... More

We've always wanted to try Oregano's but just never got around to it. Well, we're so glad we did that now we're mad it took us so long! It was tremendous!

Pizza is also good. Especially good place in nice weather on the patio. Its casual easy dining. The food is always consistently good and... More

Not bad but not great either. They do have a gluten free menu that isnt too bad but all my meals there have been dry from the chicken to the pork chops...I dont hate it but not in a hurry to go back. The patio however is very nice and the staff is also really nice why I gave it... More

Had lunch here with friends. The setting is clean and open (with nice outdoor seating area), and we all liked the order and go to table approach. My friends thought the pizza toppings were tasty but crust could be crispier. I had 1/2 salad and sandwich. They were good and came with homemade chips. But here's my gripe: Both kinds... More

Eight adults went out for a dinner get together. I had chicken piccata, others had chicken parm, eggplant parm, spaghetti and meatballs, an Italian Sausage special and salmon. Everyone was pleased. We drank Peroni and wine, and never felt rushed.

This hidden gem is worth a try, especially if you are hungry and enjoy good Italian food. When we go for dinner, we rarely get past the lasagna special, which changes daily. Large portions, piping hot, served with soup or salad and warm bread. Almost always some to take home. For lunch, there is a daily special along with a... More

This little strip mall restaurant is easily passed by, but take the time to stop for a meal. My friend and I had dinner outside on the patio and it was a relaxing and nice evening. Although it is on the corner of a busy intersection, the patio is set back far enough that it is quiet. Surrounded by trees... More

The annual meeting was big hit due to the dinner at Oregano's and the staff was friendly and prompt. Made arrangement in advance to make sure we had at least two servers. Since we had 32 people setup was mostly tables of eight. As can be imagined their where some timing issues. Overall every one of the 32 people said... More
