Great Italian food at a reasonable price. We have eaten here numerous times and are always satisfied. They have coupons in the money mailer about once a month which make it a better deal.

We were going to dinner with friends celebrating two birthdays. We settled on Mambo Italiano. I had passed the location before but didn't pay much attention since it is in a small plaza.

Staff is very friendly, Sam was our server. Besides an extensive menu, he described about 8 our 10 specials for the evening. His description made us want each one!... More

Mid sized place offering a wide array of choice from the menu along with a number of special daily items, Ravioli in all forms are a highlight!

Went in on spur of moment had zippe de peci , it was lunch not busy but service as usual was attentive. Never had a bad meal, usually go for supper and don't look at menu before listening to specials usually 10-12 of them, nearly 100% of time I order one of the specials.
