    I have a complete ‘love-hate’ relationship with Oreganos. When I found out 4 years ago that I had celiacs I realized very quickly that there are restaurants that there are 3 types of restaurants: those that are accommodating, not accommodating, and those that begrudgingly accommodate the disease. Oreganos is a restaurant that begrudgingly accommodated the disease (and GF fad) by developing a Gluten Friendly menu that included common entrees like salads. I would ask why they never served GF pizza and the answer was “our kitchen isn’t designed to eliminate cross contamination”. Admirable, I agree. So whenever my boyfriend got a hankering for Oreganos I would always order the Caesar salad- no croutons. No big deal. However, about a year ago they started serving GF pizza (prob because of the demand and negative reviews on FB) and I was SO excited that they started doing this. I asked them about their GF pizza and they said that it’s not at all safe for celiacs or those with an intolerance. They put the pizza on the same oven racks with the non-GF pizza (they don’t even use a special pan or oven safe paper) and they make the GF pizza on the same counter tops without cleaning the counters to even ‘try’. I was so disappointed by this ‘half-baked’ attempt to accommodate the growing need for GF foods that I don’t even go here anymore. There are so many better pizza restaurants that cater to celiacs that it’s not even worth trying to pretend that I might have options here.

    Friendly staff. I got the gluten free menu. Not tons of options, but the pasta dish I did order was really good. I’d love to have seen a bit more variety, but gluten free beggars can’t be choosers I guess. I’ll come back by next time I’m in town.

    My family and I are all GF. My younger son is the picky eater of the bunch. We were in Phoenix for one night only after a week's vacation. We found this place and called ahead to make sure they had GF options. They have pizza and pasta. We ended up sitting at the bar as the place was packed. The bartender was awesome! Super friendly and accommodating. She was very helpful in gaging how much food to order as the portions are big. We split two salads and three pasta dishes and waffle fries. The frys share a fryer but none of us got sick. I usually feel it if the dryer is shared but this time I didn't. The food was amazing. The picky eater had gobbled it up. Highly recommended this place. We would eat here all the time if we lived in Phoenix. Pizza looked delicious too.

    The manager came to my table and emphasized that if I am gluten free due to an allergy, the only safe menu items were the salads. "There's flour flying around the kitchen everywhere". The salad was underwhelming; I won't be going back

    Just find out this restaurant offers gluten free. We ordered gluten free pizza with mozzarella cheese, Roma tomato, caramelized onion and spinach. It has Italian atmosphere inside.
