I happened across this place when I was on the island last year, and accidentally stumbled into the best gf/df pizza I’d ever eaten. This year we won’t back to see if it was a fluke, and to our great delight, it wasn’t!

Been visiting Mambos my whole life. They have always championed the best quality toppings. And recently, they moved to a new “cup and char” pepperoni that is literally the very best pepperoni pizza I’ve ever had. Ordered it twice in one week. This is some...of the very best pizza you’ll ever have. The very best ingredients, toppings, etc.More

Ordered the Large 18" Pepperoni as there was two of eating. Well it is so big that we could not finish it. The taste was terrific and there would have been enough for a family. The delivery was fast as well. If you are trying...for the first time and are not a big eater you may want to try the smaller size.More

Let me start by saying you absolutely get your moneys worth here. It's not only excellent quality but the pizzas are massive! I love the items on the menu, there is something for every taste (I love a plain cheese, so I get the four...cheese pizza!) and it's equally yummy as leftovers, which you will probably have because of the size.More

This place was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at. So glad we tried it. Loved the idea that you could get 2 different pizza on one pie. We had the Mambo special on half and Cooks Special on the other half....Wish we lived in the area but we will go back next time we are in town. The only mess up was the fact we requested plates and napkins but they were forgotten.More

I use to love this place. It was my go to pizza for many years. However I've been let down far too many times in the last couple of years to feel the same anymore. The food is just so inconsistent. I'm sick of paying...$40 for pizza's that the cook messes up. So many times in the last over a year, I have ordered and had great pizza, only to order many other times and get pizza with almost no sauce on it at all, or with the wrong toppings. So many times I've gotten pizza with almost no sauce in the last year or more. Even with pineapple it's still dry as all hell. That's when you know it's definitely not nearly enough sauce. There's a cook problem here in the last year or more for certain, and I'm done with it. GOODBYE!!More

We stopped for the night in Nanaimo and ordered a pizza for our hotel room. They said it would be 45 minutes. Pretty standard. It came piping hot in 15 minutes and was simply delicious. Lots of fresh topping and a great homemade crust! The...prices you see include taxes and delivery. So what you see is what you pay! Smart idea. Wonderful value and a great choice. Highly recommend it!More

I'm really sorry you didn't have a great experience. Friday the 29th was an absolute zoo and unfortunately we had long waits. I can assure you the server did not mean to give a look, we are asking if customers want to tip to avoid...More

Few people will be able to eat more than one slice. So 6 to 8 people would probably be the average since there are 8 huge slices.
