that isn't saying much since there are only three other restaurants claiming to be Italian. We've eaten here several times and its usually pretty good but our recent visit, prom night unfortunately, was not so hot. We both had meatballs with our entree and the tasted like they had been in the oven since the previous day, dried out and... More

First, Christene, our server, was very friendly and helpful. Loved the calamari. Our delicious entrees were the pasta ravenna and the eggplant alla parmigiana. Both delicious. Had to get a take out box for the remaining pasta dish. Great atmosphere. Found this restaurant by reading reviews.

Delicious and enough on one plate to split between two. Atmosphere is great too. Each bite was a new flavor for Delia de Gered dish.

Our Family went to Ciao Mambo for our 28th Anniversary. Our oldest daughter found the Reviews on line.... So we had no idea what to expect. We are from the SF Bay Area and have eaten at many Italian Restaurants and Ciao Mambo by far was the absolute Best for Food quality, price, selection and value for the children's menu...... More

The food was very good but my night was spoiled the first minute that we walked in the door. The hostess was rude and when we got seated our waitress, whose name was Amber, was extremely rude. I will not be back to this restaurant ever. They should learn some manners and treat people descent.

I've read a lot of good reviews about this restaurant, but was greatly disappointed not once but twice! My first dining experience was last spring, the food was so so and our waitress was a little unfriendly. Recently, it was decided by my office; to dine here for our company Holiday party. Not my first choice but I thought I'll... More

Went to Ciao Mambo after work on Friday. We beat the evening crowd and we're seated right away. Food was excellent, as usual, and service was good. Staff is quite friendly. We've never had a bad experience at Ciao! I love the pizzas and my wife says the pasta dishes are very good.

Also there were only about six tables seated with the rest of the dinning area empty. They have several tables so there were at least 15 tables empty. Hostess asked us how... More

The menu offers good diversity and it's well laid out. Food quality was excellent---and served nicely. Good sized portions (except for manicotti which was only two stuffed (big)... More
