The food is amazing. The atmosphere is simply loud, obnoxious, and not enjoyable. Several instances of the kitchen staff shouting extremely inappropriate replies to each other. These were things I certainly would not want my children or grandchildren to hear. The wait staff were nice, but had no clue where there duties were, as well.

Absolutely amazing. From beginning to end!!! Our server Amber was so great and very patient with us as we have children. I loved the music! The appetizers came (we had bruschetta and the Italian nachos). It was so good and there was so much that we had to force ourselves to stop and save room for dinner. Then the dinner... More

We just finished a wonderful meal at Ciao Mambo. We started with the Italian Nachos which were huge and absolutely delicious. My husband had the Scampi and I had Pollo Con Formaggio (Chicken Fillets) with pasta in a Vodka sauce. Dinner was outstanding. served hot and in a timely fashion. Plus our server Ashley was extremely attentive. We will definitely... More

We ate here a few weeks ago, and it was stupendous. I chose it based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Every single thing we ordered was spectacular. We ordered the tootsie rolls (which were actually delicious wrappers stuffed with cheese), meatballs and the caprese platter for our large groups appetizers and they were all great. For the main course everyone... More

Meh, it's average chain italian food. The bruschetta was inedible and had to be sent back. The service was slow, though the server was sweet enough. We ordered the pasta ravenna and it was good, just that, good. Additionally, we ordered the Papa Biagio's Bolognese, which I found to taste a bit like chef- boyardee beefaroni with cheese added to...

I took something to go at this place. The sitting area seems good, but there were a lot of couples, so I felt awkward to sit on my own. The lasagna was good, a little too salty to my taste. But you know, when you pay $25 for a lasagna and a tiramisu, it's always nice when you don't have... More

I have eaten at ciao mambo hundreds of times as well as has my family. Unfortunately I don't think we will ever eat there again. The food and service are great. The staff knows us by name. The problems are that the music is so loud at the restaurant that we can't hear each other talk (no we don't need... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife and daughter. Terrific food, wait staff was on their game. Music was a tad loud, but overall a great experience. We will be back!

A friend and I had an awesome Italian cuisine experience --- simply an excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The wine selection was pretty good and our server was very customer oriented and very helpful with our wine selection and food pairing. The dessert list is short but are excellent! Highly recommend this place.

My family of 4 went to Ciao Mambo on our summer vacation. This place has five star service giving five star food at affordable prices. Christene, our server, was brilliant. She brought dough for the kids to play with while our food was prepared. We never had empty glasses or dirty dishes on our table. We shared the antipasti and... More
