To start with this is the 5th time we've been to Oregano's. It's never been great, but we came back because there's no other midprice Italian in the area that's any good...and the mushroom ravioli in cream sauce is consistently good. First off, the vibe: No one who works there ever seems happy or into their job (the kitchen is... More

We have been here a lot. We like the blend of Middle Eastern and Italian food. Sitting outside on the terrace (on Inn Street) in the summer is reminiscent of Europe. The quality can be slightly inconsistent depending on weather you go during the week or on the weekend, but we haven't had a bad meal yet. The pasta dishes... More

We stumbled upon Oregano's Pizzeria after a strong urge for pizza popped up! Usually we enjoy seafood or some of our other favorite spots in Newburyport. We were promptly seated, and the place was pretty busy for lunch. Nice bright dining area with big windows to people watch on the busy street. We decided on the Margherita pizza, oddly there...

In the heart of Newburyport with lots of action on the streets lined with boutiquey shops and eateries. Welcoming staff and warm inviting atmosphere. Genuine oven shipped from Italy for the best pizzas. Also nice wine!

This was not my first trip to this restaurant, however this was my first trip where I left feeling unsatisfied. The drinks were good, the atmosphere was great, but the pizza we ordered had absolutely no flavor. We ordered a menu favorite, the lasagna pizza and it tasted like nothing. The best part of the pizza was the crust. I... More

After two not so great service events, I heard that there were some changes made at the restaurant. I decided to give it another try, after all, the food was always good. TJ, the host, our waiter Berto and a visit by Jill the manager made for a very nice experience. Looking forward to many return visits.

This is a Jewel of a Restaurant. I met with a Washington, DC & Portsmouth, NH executive on October 20th. One person wanted ice tea. Yet, at 5pm I knew it was time for something more. So I ordered and appetizer of hummus, tzatgiki and two other like selections. The $11 very large round dish was not only beautiful, inviting,... More

We were here as a large group and some of the party had excellent dishes (some of the pizzas, some of the pasta) but other things were not good at all. The lamb shank was tough and possibly not given the long, slow cook it needed, the oregano pizzas were dominated unsuccessfully by the oregano) The wine was only average... More

Each pizza dough is hand stretched and topped with the freshest locally grown ingredients then finished in our signature brick oven imported from Genoa, Italy. Al dente pasta and Italian entrees, fresh salads, and house-made desserts are sure to entice you! All of our menu items are available gluten free! Enjoy a variety of local brew beers, unique cocktails, or one of our 30 wines, by the glass-the largest selection of Italian wines from the premier regions of Italy.
