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

Wow! Do the Billingtonians know what a gem they have right in their downtown? Fantastic pasta, quick and friendly service and located in a pretty, gentrified part of the city. I look forward to another visit to Billings just for their made-to-order excellence.

This was our first visit too this establishment and it we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was old world. The place has obviously been around for a long time. For it's apparent age it was well kept and very clean. Only negative comment would be that it is a little noisy. The food was excellent. I had the steak masala... More

I'll save you the suspense of what went wrong: I ordered take-out, got the meal back to my hotel room only to discover something truly horrible- you'll understand if you travel for your work like I do-NO FORK! How am I supposed to eat this incredible Italian meal without a fork? I unfortunately deal with this about every 3 days... More

I had the frutti de mare. It was excellent, especially for Billings. Could have maybe had a little more seafood in it. The salads are very good also. I was very impressed with the service. I have dietary restrictions, and try to get balsamic vinegar to go with the meal. Most restaurant servers don't know what it is, or the... More

I have never had nachos made from deep fried lasagna noodles before, but it was awesome! Also, who ever thought about deep frying pizza dough nuggets, rolling them in powdered sugar and serving them with hot caramel or huckleberry sauce is a genius!! The atmosphere was great and the service was fantastic. I would recommend making this a weekly stopping... More
