The lights are low, the music is turned up, wine is flowing, and the energy is buzzing in the air. It’s a perfect evening and the perfect setting for…Italian food at MAMBO’S. 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 Southern 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. If the atmosphere and friendly service don't seduce you, the pasta will. Bring your friends, family and appetite for fun, and we'll handle the rest. Come on in, your table is waiting!

Best thin crust pizza.. But varied menu

I've never had a bad meal. It can be noisy downstairs, but the upstairs is better. Get there early to avoid a wait, but the food is worth it! Equal parts Locals and visitors

Fantastic Italian diner! The Cioppino was phenomenal, as was the chicken parm! There is a wait on mosr days but well worth it. They take reservations for a party of 8 only. Prices were reasonable considering the quantity and quality! Fab bread too! Order a side of piping hot marinara ($2.00) for dipping! Pure heaven!

We drove from West Glacier after getting a positive review from some fellow whitewater rafters. There was no wait for just the two of us (we dined on a Tuesday evening) but for anything larger it was 20-25 min. We dined on the outdoor deck upstairs and the weather was beautiful. They offer a great wine list and all of... More

This waitress was SO RUDE!! Asked her nicely if we could get more bread.. " sure thing! " she replies. Never got it... Then, after watching her complain to someone across the table ( co-worker and friend ) where we can see you and watch those two look over and laugh. Look's REALLY proffessional on your part. Never going back... More

A favorite in our family, one-time owners of an Italian restaurant. We loved the aroma of garlic that greeted us at the door and we settled easily into the friendly atmosphere. Be sure to order the hot, freshly baked bread! We ordered clams, eggplant parmigiana, chicken parmigiana, and pizza, and could not have been more pleased. Great selection of wines... More

We stumbled across this place based on reviews and absolutely loved it. Sat at the bar, drank well priced wine and enjoyed excellent food while having delightful and fun service. We started with mouth watering garlic bread and loved the tootsie rolls as an appetizer and finished with a bow tie pasta with chicken, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and... More

We just finished our dinner at Ciao Mambo. We loved it. We arrived early (a bit before 5) and enjoyed seating on the covered patio. Our two sons had pizzas and enjoyed them very much. My husband and I shared the Insalata de Mele and the Fettuccine alla Lulubella I highly recommend both! The prices were fair, especially for a... More

If you didn't know better, you would thing that Whitefish was a college town, but in reality there is nothing even close. The atmosphere in this place is one of the reasons why. Overstaffed for a reason, hustle and bustle, noise, loud music, wait staff shouting orders to chefs and the clutter and bangs of the kitchen with utensils thrown... More
