Marvelous Italian Food in Fairhaven

While exploring the historic village of Fairhaven, and needing sustenance, I happily chanced upon this eatery. Choosing to eat outside on their sidewalk terrace, I people- watched and thoroughly enjoyed my delicious meal. I was tempted by their full Italian menu, but the Vongole Linguine (with... read more

I was tempted by their full Italian menu, but the Vongole Linguine (with local Bellingham clams) won out. It was incredible, and paired with the attentive, friendly... More

This is our family's go to place for Italian. It has the best combination of quality, selection, service, setting, and price in Bellingham. A small amount of average quality patio seating is available on the street in front. We normally prefer the standard inside dining area (in front). The rear seating area has too much of a chain restaurant feel.... More

I have been here a handful of times, and never ever have I had a bad meal The service is always wonderful as well. Their Caesar salad is perfect. My personal favorite, Gamberoni Mediterranean. There is usually a wait on a Friday or Saturday night, but trust me, its worth it!

We stopped by after golf without a reservation but were seated right away. My golfing partner then asked if we could sit in the courtyard and they were pleased to accommodate his request. Service was great throughout the meal. I had the Gamberoni Mediterranean (6 tiger prawns with fettuccine) and a small Caesar salad to start. The salad had a... More

Mambo's had delicious food and wonderful service. We went because it was recommended on Yelp. We ate outside and enjoyed the view. I would definitely go there again.

Very busy restaurant. Cocktails were perfect and the food was outstanding. Waitstaff were extremley good and did not stand over you but kept an eye on you so as to know when to bring your food.

My son and I went here for dinner after a long day of cycling and so we were pretty hungry and were craving carbs! We had the Caprese Salad which was simple (as it should be) and very tasty - they actually used a good quality, fresh mozzarella and large fresh basil leaves. We also had the Bruschetta which was...

My husband and I LOVE Mambo. We either go in or order out every 2 weeks or so. Being from the east coast, this is the best pizza we can find around here. & Their caesar salad is the best i've ever had. The service is always wonderful and welcoming. It's a cute comfy little place.
