Pizza is unsafe. They told me there’s flour residue on the cooking surface and they put the gf crust directly on it.

Oreganos has gluten free pizza that is really good. The waitress made double sure that the pizza is safe since I have a gluten and dairy allergy. The staff is educated, this place is good to come to.

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.

They have a glutenfree menu and I asked the waiter if the GF-pasta is cooked in seperate water and it is, so it is celiac-save. The pasta tasted very good. Pizzas are not for celiacs (marked ond menu).

Went here as a tourist and it was amazing! The restaurant is beautiful inside and when I mentioned being gluten free to the host they immediately pulled out a dedicated menu. While not too many options were available, what was offered was quite impressive. I got some delicious pasta while I was there. An issue was with the chicken I requested on the dish but the server checked with the kitchen several times with questions about the dish and was very helpful. Several alternatives were made available and the meal was delicious. The staff are fastidious in their protocols and the kitchen is well-informed on celiac disease, which was also specifically mentioned and asked about by the server. Wonderful place and would go there again. 10/10

This place is so gross. If you have to eat here, get a salad. Or better yet, don’t go here.

Our waitress was knowledgeable and lovely, the food was awful though. They also have French fries that are GF as an appetizers? I don’t get it?

I go here for lunch occasionally. They have a separate gluten free menu, you just have to ask for it. They have pasta, salads, and pizza. I always get the pasta and it's very good. I always tell them it's for allergy and have never gotten sick. The staff is knowledgeable and if they don't know, they will find someone who can answer all your questions. Once or twice they have accidentally put bread on the plate so I have had to send it back. Otherwise great experience!
