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.

We love the Ciao Mambo in Whitefish, MT, so when we were in Billings recently we decided to try their Billings location. It was easy to find and though it was street parking we weren't too far.

I'm not sure how this restaurant isn't in the top 10. We were looking for a pasta place, and Ciao Mambo didn't disappoint. They have a huge menu to choose from. My dad hardly ever says anything about his meals so when he took his first bite and said, "This is really tasty" we knew it was good. My mom... More

While in Billings we stopped by Ciao Mambo when we saw that it was just down the street from the brewery we were visiting. The building was very nice and my wife and I both thought that it was well decorated and had good space inside. The waitress was very attentive during our dinner and took very good care of... More

The over all quality of the good was very good and they had many gluten-free choices. The Gluten-free noodles are locally made and have very good texture and flavor.

Walking by we decided to have Italian tonight. Waited less than 5 minutes for a table. Very friendly service. Everything is made to order so they are happy to make changes to any dish. The garlic bread is wonderful. We ate a lot of it. Eggplant Parmesan was served on pasta with a light sauce--so good. Husband asked for his... More

We came here late at night after driving all day. It was perfect for us. The salads were amazing and delicious. We had the Caesar salad and Insalata Mista, and they were great-just the right portion sizes. The garlic bread is really good too, and the desserts were amazing. Some of the best cheesecake and tiramisu I've had outside of... More

While stopping in Billings, Mt, on a road trip to Washington, we ate at Ciao Mambo. It was wonderful! Our server, Brianna, was attentive and efficient - in fact, everyone there seemed to move like busy bees in a hive! And the food was delicious. I had the meatball-onion-red sauce pizza and my husband had the eggplant parmigiana - we... More

I discovered this place while walking downtown. The menu, atmosphere, and service all exceeded my expectation. Their garlic bread is the best I have ever had at an Italian place.

I had looked at EVERY Italian restaurant in Billings for cannoli, Ciao Mambo had it! A phone call later they had it ready for me in seconds, all I had to do is hop out of the car and run in, after 18 months and only wanting a cannoli while visiting town, they just gave it to me. I will... More
