Simple and unpretentious local pizza place. We visited on a Saturday night and there were still tables available as it is slightly hidden down a side street away from the crowds.
They start off every table with some yummy marinated olives. We got the orecchiette broccoli e salsiccia pasta (broccoli and sausage) and the Toscana pizza (salami, pecorino, tomatoes and basil). Both were very nice...more
Quite awful. The pizza was simply not good - my boyfriend made the mistake of ordering aa seafood pizza and it came topped with surimi sticks and a couple of wilted clams which looked like they had spent their last few months in a jar. I ordered a parmigiana and the dough was pale not crispy, way too much (and I suspect poor quality) mozzarella.. We were hoping to find a dependable pizza place...more
Technically, 3.5 stars.
Pizzeria Oregano has the ambience of a Dominos or Papa John's but with the added bonus of toilets.
Ambience aside, the food was pretty good for a neighborhood pizzeria. Good enough that I would return again but my heart does, and will always, lie with Santa Maria Pizzeria which happens to reside on the opposite side of London.

One of my fav pizza joints right off upper street. A great place to meet up with people as it's so close to Angel station. Portions are big and great value for the price. Their pastas are huge as well. One of my fav parts of this restaurant is they give you free olives so you can eat them whilst waiting for your pizza! Really friendly staff, Sebastian is awesome and really accommodating!more
One of my favorite pizza joints in London.
Like their description says, their portions are big and they value quality and taste. They meet that expectation for me as it's my go to spot when I'm craving pizza. The pizzas are tasty and crust is nice and thin with a slight crunch. The pastas are delicious. The pasta noodles are always cooked al-dente perfect and flavor is on point.
