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.

Real Italian food!

Didn't know Ciao Mambo had opened in Billings. This one has more of a big city ambience than the one in Whitefish, but the food is just as good. The Sinatra music adds the perfect touch. If you're crave authentic Italian fare, this is the place. Dessert was great and reasonably priced. Loved... read more

Our large group had an excellent server, as well as other support staff that kept our glasses full, plates cleared and left overs wrapped and ready to go. When someone in our party asked if a dish could be sent back because it was too spicy without hesitation our server took care of this request and immediately had another dish... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Billings. They're one of the few places in town that have my favorite wine (chianti). I'm not even sure how many times I've eaten here with friends, family, or my husband, but it never disappoints. You start the meal with fresh (unlimited) bread from the kitchen with butter, parmesan, spices, and a... More

This is a nice place and the waitress was very attentive. The food was good and a large amount. I had the eggplant parmesan ! It was good and good flavor. I would take family there. It is kind of noisy but you could still have a conversation ! I enjoyed it!

We were starving and were served a salad immediately upon order, making the wait for made to order food no issue. Knowledgeable staff about the wine selections and food flavours and textures amazing. Atmosphere was warm and easy going. I would go out of... More

The food is always amazing. It can be a little loud so if your looking for a quiet dinner don't go here but the food and service are top notch

We stopped while we were returning home to Seattle. We didn't eat a lot - a small pizza, some bread and a salad, but the quality of the food was excellent and the environment was fun.

Want your kids engaged while you enjoy dinner with your spouse? Your kids can sit up at the counter and you can have an actual conversation! They can throw dough, you can drink excellent wine (finally an excellent Sauvignon Blanc from NZ) and even have doughnuts for dessert. If you are parents needing a break, excellent food and drinks -... More

What an unexpected pleasure! My wife has been after me for a couple of years and I never expected that the food, the service, the atmosphere would be this good and quite reasonable.

We were two couples out for a fun dinner and Ciao Mambo filled the bill. We had a great experience. The food was awesome and the service was very good. We were all pleasantly surprised and just had a wonderful evening.
