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

I only get to Nanaimo once or twice a year, but every single time I makes sure I have at least one meal at Mambos. Probably the best pizza I’ve ever had.

We placed a timed delivery order. Our order arrived on time, hot and fresh. Mambo's pizza goes above and beyond not only in the quality of their product, but also in customer service. Kudos to Mambo's pizza!

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.
