Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere, comfortable open and fun. Waiter (Ben) was great, friendly and efficient, gave great suggestion on wine. Cute service staff and friendly kitchen. Food was adequate, plenty of options. I had a Penne dish, plenty of volume!

This is an always-busy, friendly place to go in downtown Billings. It has a nice selection of appetizers, salads, soup, pasta and meats. it is very popular with families, the food is good, staff is friendly, and we enjoy the place a lot. Portions are very generous, I think you could buy two and few appetizers to feed four people.... More

I love the food at Ciao Mambo and this evening did not disappoint me in that way. However, when I order takeout, I would expect the restaurant to include napkins and disposable silverware. What do they think we are going to eat the food with - our fingers? I expect napkins and disposable silverware to be included in a takeout... More

We have been going to Ciao Mambo for quite some time, and love the food and atmosphere. The other night we went with friends and couldn't even hear each other across the table. The kitchen was "communicating" so loudly, yelling at each other and clanging pots and pans. I don't know if this is some kind of experiment or not,... More

From the wine to dessert it was delicious. I enjoyed a wonderful gluten free dish while the rest of the family had other pasta dishes. The staff was attentive and friendly. Can't wait to go back.

I wish I could have given this restaurant a 5, but the service was so poor the night we were there. I love the Eggplant Alla Parmigiana and my husband said his lasagna was very good. We were with a group of friends. Everyone got their drinks but my sister-in-law. She waited quite awhile then asked a person who came... More

We had a great meal, service was very good. The only complaint I have is the restaurant is extremely noisy, which is typical of most places these days.

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 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. Bring your friends, family and appetite for fun, and we'll handle the rest.
