We ate dinner there before a business meeting. We were a little pinched for time. Service was prompt and correct. Food was attractively served and delicious. I had one of the pizza's and it was wonderful, the crust was thin and tasted a lot like a New York Pizza only smaller. The others all had pasta and raved about the... More

Best Italian food in Billings. Priced right and great service. Great atmosphere and music. Cooking can be seen from tables close to the bar seating. The bread comes hot and full of garlic flavor...It's hard not to eat just one piece. Come and enjoy..

In Billings for business for a few months. The hotel staff recommended Ciao Mambo for good Italian food. I'm glad they did. The waitstaff goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The food is great with a mixture of classic Italian dishes that the chef puts a unique spin. Looking forward to my next visit.

We were visiting from out of town... lots of places closed on Sundays but not Ciao Mambo. We had a great dinner... food was excellent, service was great, nice restaurant although on the chilly side for sure and a little noisy coming from the kitchen.

My husband and I came here to enjoy dinner. He had the lasagna and I had the vodka penne, both were amazing meals! We both had enough for a second meal. We enjoyed a glass of wine each and had minestrone soup. We split tiramisu for dessert. We were so full and happy when we left. Great meal, we loved... More

Ciao Mambo was within walking distance of our hotel in downtown Billings. Very nicely decorated and clean. The service was excellent as was the food. I had the baked pasta dish which was really tasty. Too much for me to eat though. Really good complimentary garlic cheese bread too. Excellent dining experience!

We had this place recommended to us by the front desk staff at our hotel. Good call! It was busy, but buzzing and had a good feel. Our server was great, including hitting us with free drinks due to a short delay caused by them having to cater to a large birthday party. Food was very good. Fresh, tasty pasta... More

My girlfriend and I ate there recently and we're disappointed in the portion sizes of their meals. My lasagna dinner was half the size of Bruno's, Cafe Italia, or Enzos. My girlfriends spaghetti dinner was served with a thin watery sauce . Our wine glasses were only filled a third of the way and the waitress came by often to... More

Passing through Billings and luckily found Ciao Mambo. We're from Chicago which has numerous top-notch Italian restaurants, but I've honestly never had a better Italian meal than I had here. I had the linguini arrabbiata which was I can't even tell you how delicious. Wonderful tomato-based sauce and Italian sausage. My wife, who is from an Italian family, had the... More

We ate here with our kids and grandkids on a Wednesday "All you can eat spaghetti" night. It is kind of noisy because the restaurant is in an older brick building. The food is excellent and plenty of it. No one needed a second helping. The pasta was more like thin fettucine and the sauce was terrific. We paid $1.00... More

With creative twists on classic recipes there is something for everyone in the family. It's Italian Nachos, Minestrone, Lasagne, Tiramisu, Chianti, Frank Sinatra, Great Fun, Wonderful Service and a whole lot more... Ciao Mambo atmosphere works just as well for romantic couples as it does for a cozy table of family, friends and children too.

At Mambo's, we serve up immigrant style Italian cuisine in a happening family ambiance. Our pasta dishes with rich, savory sauces and fresh ingredients, thin crust pizzas baked to perfection, and unmatchable service will keep you coming back for more. Bring your friends, family and appetite for fun, and we'll handle the rest.
