Gluten-free pizza

One of the few places I've found you can confidently order gluten-free pizza that actually tastes good with a very large selection of toppings. We've ordered takeout from Mambo on several different occasions and been completely satisfied each time.

This place is perfect for pizza by the slice or a whole pizza. I will always go back to Mambo's when Im in town.

This is a family favourite. We often run in to grab a slice or order in. The pizzas taste more flavourful than most and aren't loaded with grease. The staff is always super polite and the owner knows most of his customers by name. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great pie :)

I would have given them a much higher score had half the crust on both of our pizzas not been black. I loved the toppings, but they were completely ruined by the charcoal on the top and bottom of half the crust. I have heard so many good things about their pizza that this was really disappointing.

Not the most luxurious part of downtown but the pizza was delicious. Close to several downtown hotels. The pizza wasn't greasy and they didn't have two for one so one pays a bit more for tasty.

We usually get the Montreal Pizza with added Feta Cheese, and Spinach. It has Pepperoni, Salami, Mushrooms, Green Peppers, Onions, and there Mozza. It is the best with lots of toppings.

Lots of toppings but not overwhelming. Not greasy. Excellent pizza, decor and outside don't do the place justice. Highly recommended.

Yes, I can now say with certainty that Mambos is one of Nanaimo's best pizza places. It's definitely in the top 20 of the best pizza places I have tried. Their service & food quality has been consistent, though we have only ever gotten take out. The delivery drivers have always brought our pizza on time, fresh and hot.

Our family was looking for a place to eat some pizza before heading back to our campground. This place was great! Very accommodating for our family of 5. They made an XL pizza but allow 4 different varieties on 4 separate parts of the pizza so everyone could choose what they want. Not much room to sit but we were... More
