“Grab a slice when they kick you out of the bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The place is very basic, it serves the party on Sat night crowd downtown, the Pizza is really good, and a slice has a fair price. If you are really lucky -- like my last midnight visit -- some tart came up to the windows and pulled up her top to flash her ex-bf. But if not at least the pizza is good.

“Ok pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We recently stopped here while on vacation on Vancouver Island. It was Saturday night about 8 PM and Nanaimo was NOT hopping. Many restaurants were closed and downtown was vacant. We were hungry and desperate for something quick and easy, although not fast food. We ordered a large veggie pizza (split between the Spinny and Veggie Delight (they will do halfsies). It was made to order and ingredients were fresh. The Spinny was good with pine nuts and feta. While the ingredients were good quality, there was something lacking. The crust was thicker than I like and my mom disliked the tangy sauce. It wasn't bad, but lacked a "wow" factor that would merit a higher rating. I recommend not dining in. The atmosphere is lacking.

“Best. Pizza. Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

By far the best pizza I have ever had. Unique crust flavour makes this pizza different from all the rest.
Can be bought by the slice, rare to find in this town, or by the whole. They will even 1/2 or 1/4 the type of pizza on the large.
Value for dollar is exceptional.
My only complaint is that they aren't open on Sundays.

“bad attitude...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Been ordering pizzas for awhile from mambo. The customer service experience is defined by who answers the phone. My last experience was a disaster that resulted in a rude employee hanging up on me twice.

Guess we won't be eating or doing the mambo anymore.

Sad...

“Perfect Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Nothing to dislike. The pizza is made fresh to order; you can have it by the slice or whole pizzas; it is extremely affordable and delicious!!!
