The restaurant is adorned beautifully with lovely wooden interiors. Once you’re inside, you can actually feel the Italian vibes in the air. It’s a fine dine restaurant that is perfect for an outing with family and friends. The restaurant has an Italian street side themed décor which is quite unique and something that definitely sets this place apart from the other Italian places we have tried.
With the authentic food served, the lovely music and unique aesthetics around us, we were definitely in for a true Italian experience. In addition, they even have a lovely wishing fountain upfront where you can drop a few pennies and make a wish!
As we were seated, we placed our order and were offered some complimentary bread with a red sauce dip and an anchovy dip which tasted just okay. But kudos to our server for warning us about the anchovy dip as we also have a vegetarian scavenger.
1. Strawberry Mojito [AED 25]: This drink is a staple drink for us and we have it everywhere we go. Some places get it right while some are a huge disappointment. Oregano ticked all the right boxes for us and definitely did the mojito justice. It was refreshing and flavourful. One of the best strawberry mojitos we’ve tried as of yet.
2. Alfredo Pasta [AED 48]: A creamy pasta that usually comes with chicken but we exchanged it with broccoli for our vegetarian partner. The pasta was slightly undercooked but the cheese sauce covered it up by being super delicious.
3. Spicy Barbecue Pizza [AED 41]: Easily one of the best pizzas we’ve eaten. This pizza had a thin crust base along with generous pieces of juicy chicken, capsicum, onion and mozzarella. It has a spicy BBQ sauce drizzled on top making it spicy but not too much. The chicken chunks were delicious and it just took us one bite to realize that this pizza would be devoured in a heartbeat!

Be it the pasta 🍝 or #pizza 🍕 we have no problems having a carb fest at this place. We enjoyed the #pasta that was super cheesy 🧀 and nailed to perfection was the Alfredo sauce that we couldn’t resist scraping up the plate for it. . . . . . . #fusilialfredoconpollo #spicybarbecue #strawberrymojito #oregano #maxfoodshot #dubaisiliconoasis #buzzfeedfood #bbcgoodfoodmiddleeast #dubaifoodie #dubaiinfluencers #dubaipr #dubaibloggers #eeeeeats #foodindubai #foodbloggers #grabbd #honor7 #instalike #insydodubai #localguides #timeoutdubai #thescrumptiousscavengers #uaebloggers #zomatouae #mydubaj
We were quite pleased with the service at this restaurant. The staff were patient and friendly.
The prices are a little on the higher side but they make up for it in portion sizes as one main course can easily be shared by two.
Yes. We love Italian cuisine and Oregano hit all the right notes with us so we’re definitely going to drop by sometime soon!
