One of our favorite local restaurants is Oregano's. There are six locations in the valley, plus one in Flagstaff and one in Tucson. We usually go to the one on Camelback, but have been to the one in Tempe and Scottsdale... the service and the food is high quality at each location.

So, here is what we love to order...


Everything on the menu is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. We love it!

We went today for lunch and ordered the Pesto Bruschetta, Beefstro Sandwich, Pesto Penne Pasta and then a chocolate chip pazookie for dessert! Yummo! We were stuffed... but it was totally worth it! AND we have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!!! Yea! (See the end of this entry for a description of the pazookie. You HAVE to save room for this incredible dessert. It is often imitated by other restaurants, but never will you find one that is as perfect as the Oregano's version!

We love the t-shirts that the servers wear. They are always so dang clever. Here is one of our old favorite slogans...

THE ORiGiNAL PiZZA COOKiE Now this will knock your socks off! A 1/2 pound of Chocolate Chip, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, or Peanut Butter Chocolate cookie dough, slightly baked in a 6-inch pizza pan then topped with 3 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream. This baby serves 2-4. DO iT!

Sorry to everyone that does not live in Arizona. This is a strong reason to visit!!!

I love love love Oregano's! So much that my coworkers (when I lived there and worked) were so sick of it, because that is what I always wanted. They have the most fabulous salad - and the pazookie is to die for!
