Solid, solid pizza in a variety of traditional and fresh styles--by the slice or by the convenient half-and-half large pizza or quarters extra large pizza (yes, you can pick 4 different styles per extra-large pizza!). Their bacon has saved my bacon at 2am on a Friday night numerous times...let's just leave it at that. As well, Mambos is family-owned and... More

Big family with a variety of taste preferences which Mambo accommodates nicely with extra large size and up to four choices of configuration options. My favourite is the Greco but also love the Pepperoni & Cheese. Kids gobble up the Aloha and Meat Lovers pretty quickly. Crust is delicious, sauce is scrumptious and the quality topping are fresh. Nice large... More

We stopped here after a day-trip to Gabriola. We were starving and looking for a quick take-out meal and chose Mambo based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! It was fast, fresh and delicious! We will definitely be back.

Best pizza in Nanaimo. Great local owners. Great menu variety - quality ingredients. Always helpful service. Hot and ready or made to order - you can't get better pizza.

I love all the pizza at Mambos, tastes homemade and is priced well. I've been ordering Pizza here for nearly 20 years and consistency is what they're all about. I recommend THE SPINNY STYLE.

There is no competing with the quality of their pizzas. Hot, fresh and tasty. Massive pizzas mean massive slices and they are happy to cut them down smaller for you too.

I love Mambo's. I've had some great pizzas - including a few in Italy, but Mambo's is still the best. I love the Hawaiian - but Bacon Burger and Four Cheese are faves too!

We ordered a half and half large pizza - one side was a Voodoo and the other was the Juniper. We preferred the Juniper side bit both were good.

My husband and I came here during a business trip &wanted something casual take back to the hotel room. We loved how you could divide the pizza 50/50 as we couldn't agree on just one (ours was half jalapeño popper and half hangover) both were great. The pizzas are huge and very filling but incredibly tasty. Great crust, not too... More
