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.
Gluten free here, just ask. Love the pizza and salads.
Wonderful place, but with no dedicated space to make gluten-free pizza and a common pizza oven the possibility of cross-contamination is high especially with flour in the air. My neighbor is Celiac and got some gluten from Oregano's gluten-free pizza. Especially sensitive Celiacs may prefer a less risky place like Picazzo where gluten-free is the norm.
— Separate gluten-free menu
GF pizza / pesto sauce, sausage, pepperoni, garlic .. OMG .. will be going back for this one again and again. My 1st experience with GF pizza ever.
IF we need to wait, it's definitely worth the wait and we drank only water while waiting!
They are “gluten friendly” and not gluten free. Had a simple salad with Italian dressing and felt fine afterwards. Second time I went I had the simple salad but with chicken since the chicken is cooked on a skillet vs on a shared stove top- did not have a reaction. I don’t trust the pizza, waitress are good to remind “we are a gluten friendly environment but can’t ensure gluten free.”
Huge portions and a large menu with many options. The decor is cute and very family-style. Service was a bit slow after more than an hour’s wait, but our waitress was friendly and funny. I have celiac so was not able to eat their gluten free pizza due to cross contamination, but did enjoy a “big” Caesar salad which was in fact huge. Their salad dressings are all gluten free, you just need to ask for no croutons or cheese crumbles.
I didn't see a gluten free menu. I can't have any grains so I didn't get the pizza. My salad came down to plain chicken on some lettuce. It was sad. Not much for gluten free, especially if you are dairy and grain free too. :(
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
