We ended up having to cancel our reservations at Mambo and getting take-out there instead. The "Devil" seafood pasta was divine, the fig and goat cheese pizza tasty and sweet, and Pasta Alla Voka yummy. But, the star of the show was definitely the osso bucco. Tender, delectable meat that paired very well with the polenta.

Wow! This restaurant blew our socks off on Wednesday night! Having eaten at several great restaurants in Italy, we know what good Italian food tastes like and this restaurant hit the mark in EVERY category. Serving what has to be the best meat in town as much of is farm-raised - well, you just have to have it to believe... More

Came here for my mom's birthday. We made a reservation and showed up 15 minutes early. Even though the place was packed, they had our table ready and sat us immediately. They had a decent wine selection, and all of the food looked great at the tables around us. I only ordered a pizza, but they had no problem making... More

I've visited Italy several times & love Italian food. Mamba Italiano brought back good memories of some of my favorite Italian restaurants!! The food was great, the wine wonderful & the atmosphere very enjoyable.

We had an amazing meal even though we hadn't booked and they were really busy, they couldn't have been more accommodating. We had a drink at the bar, while they organised seating for us which was overlooking the kitchen staff, we were amazed how amazing they were, they worked so hard to cook such amazing food. The whole meal was... More

First thing you need to know (that we didn't know) is that you MUST make a reservation to ANY restaurant in Steamboat if you want to eat on a holiday week, or on the weekend! We fortunately had reservations at 7:30pm on a Friday night the week of New Years 2015. We arrived really early hoping to be sat early... More

I had the spaghetti bolognese and my husband had the gnocchi - both were amazing!!! We finished with the ganache- fried chocolate balls with ice cream -... More

It is New Year's Day, and we anticipated a busy night despite our early-ish dinner reservation. Our friendly waitress (Carmen) got us seated with water and bread and even our wine order quickly, but our meals (6 of them) took what felt like a long time. Finally they came and they were delicious!! We felt the long wait was worth... More

We came to Steamboat during the peak season without knowing it. Walked into Mambo Italiano as it was suggested by friends that are frequent visitors. We were asked if we had reservations which we didn't. They worked us in and were immediately shown a table. It's a small restaurant but has a welcome feel- not uppity or chainy. Server was... More
