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!

If your going to call it a Montreal style pizza then go to Montreal and do your research. This was no where near what I ate in Montreal growing up. Try B &M pizza in Montreal, it's the best! The pizza looked great but no flavor! I looked at my piece and under the cheese was only 1 piece of... More

Called in for a couple of slices for lunch and I wasn't too keen at first because it didn't look like much, but I certainly learned not to judge a book by its cover! The staff were really friendly and cooked up a vegetarian pizza for me as none were available. The slices were big and cheap, one was enough... More

Picked up Pizza for out of town company and it was a HIT. I have always known Mambos is the best pizza in Nanaimo but it was great to have it confirmed by my company from North Vancouver Island. As always if was fresh and flavorful.

Mambos is a family favourite. I love that they use fresh toppings and the pizza actually has flavour. The staff are wonderful and participate in local events like heritage days by offering pizza to all volunteers! You guys rock. Thank you for making great food for all of us last minute pick up orders ❤️

Awesome pizzas, always ample toppings and just the right amount of cheese, not too much cheese so that everything sticks together.

You can get it by the slice or get a huge custom pizza... The "hang over" is my personal favorite, if you are downtown Nanaimo I highly recommend you stop in and try them out!!!
