This is a must-do restaurant when we go up to visit the family in Bellingham. It caters to all ages and styles in a friendly manner, the food is good, and the price is reasonable. I also really love seeing the artwork done by a local artist featured on the walls. It smells good when you walk in, you get... More

The bywords of this review is consistency in service and quality of food....while maintaining reasonable prices for all. Our favorites are the steamed clams, spaghetti with Italian sausage and meat sauce, coupled with their house Sangiovese wine! Best table for two in the window!

We had our windshield replaced & they offered us restaurant coupons for using Angie's List. We chose $35 at Mambo & we enjoyed it so much we've been back three times. The food is excellent fresh Italian - great soup, salad, pasta, & the service & atmosphere are also excellent. Mambo is in an old brick Fairhaven building - small,... More

We love Mambo and have a variety of meals, including the steak salad, pesto linguine, tortellini, lasagna, spaghetti with meatballs, and their side salads. Always a great experience!

Dinner at Mambo's tonight was a delight. We had reservations, which would have been mandatory on this night, and our table was ready when we arrived. Service was good, out waitress very efficient and good at her job. We both ordered drinks - my partner an in-house Sangria and me a local beer - along with pasta for our mains... More

Only went there once, so could have been what we happened to order, but we found the food fine, not great. Really nice people and fun, busy atmosphere, though. Has a great kind of humming energy.

It is a trademark of most tourist-serving restaurants;the lack of interest in providing a consistent experience. It almost seems at times that you have to make the day (somehow) of the wait staff at this establishment to obtain a decent dining experience. Sometimes I am up for the challenge, other times I just don't have the energy especially when I... More

We were exploring the Fairhaven area of Bellingham, WA and since we love Italian food it seemed like a good fit. We had a choice of inside or outside and we chose to sit outside next to the busy street because it was a beautiful day in Washington. I had one of the best lunches I have ever enjoyed. I... More
