Description: The lights are low, the music is turned up, wine is flowing, and the energy is buzzing in the air. It’s a perfect evening and the perfect setting for…Italian food at MAMBO’S. With creative twists on classic recipes there is something for everyone in the family. It’s Italian Nachos, Minestrone, Lasagne, Tiramisu, Chianti, Frank Sinatra, Great Fun, Wonderful Service and a whole lot more… Ciao Mambo atmosphere works just as well for romantic couples as it does for a cozy table of family, friends and children too.At Mambo’s, we serve up immigrant style Southern Italian cuisine in a happening family ambiance. Our pasta dishes with rich, savory sauces and fresh ingredients, thin crust pizzas baked to perfection, and unmatchable service will keep you coming back for more. If the atmosphere and friendly service don't seduce you, the pasta will. Bring your friends, family and appetite for fun, and we'll handle the rest. Come on in, your table is waiting!

They don't take reservations unless your a large group so plan on waiting for a table, 20 to 30 minutes. But it is well worth it. Great food, fantastic service and great value. You get to watch the cooks do their magic and they put on a show. Rarely do I return to a restaurant for a second time while on vacation but my wife and I agree this one is worth a second visit.

Thank you for the kind review and spending some time with us here at Mambos. We do primarily walk in business here at Mambos in Whitefish as the dining room is set for parties of 2-6. We also have great respect those guests who will wait to dine with us. We do take a few accommodation reservations each evening for larger parties due to the fact that we have to put tables together in order to, accommodate. Although, there is no guarantee as Mambos is focused on respecting those eager guests willing to wait 10 or 15 minutes to taste our amazing dishes. We hope to see you back soon - and appreciate your business.

We enjoyed another meal at Ciao Mambo and luckily had the same waiter as last year-James!
The menu is large and a huge variety. The prices were very reasonable and the portions huge. We shared main course and an appetizer.
Service was excellent. It's a very busy place but they move customers through at a good pace. Reservations may be a good idea although we waited only 15 minutes without.
We will be back again.

Thank Lorrie L

There were six of us, and we all loved our food. We especially loved the bread. Thank you Trip Advisor. Have been disappointed, yet!

If you are in the mood to totally break the diet, go for it here. The food is very good and the portions were generous. The service was outstanding. They were busy but we always had our glasses filled and we didn't wait too long dinner.

We had to wait about 45 min for a table for 7 but was told it was worth it and it was!! The two hosts kept you informed of what was going on prior to bring seated so there was never a question as to where you were in line. Just really nice. We sat upstairs by a bar and it was great. Service was excellent and so was the food! This was our third and last night staying there but if we had one more night, I would have chosen this again to try the pizza. Oh it smelled good!!!
