Ciao Mambo serves high quality Italian food at a reasonable price. I'm a tightwad, let me say that up front. I rarely drop $40+ on a steak because I can buy one and grill it myself for a fraction of that price. BUT, when it comes to Ciao Mambo, my favorite dish is one of the most expensive on the... More

I first ate at the one in Whitefish, which was delicious so I was excited to find they had one in Billings. I started out with an appetizer of calamari, then moved on to the lasagna. Wouldn't want to go anywhere else for it!

I do not usually get pasta dishes at restaurants, but my son said to try it. I had eggplant parmesan with pasta. It was the best Italian dish I ever had!

Stumbled upon this place after becoming very frustrated with the one-way street system in Billings. No wait for a table (Friday night). Great waitress, fab wine and food. I had carbonara, my husband had linguine rustica. Both recommended, but huge portions. Good local beer and very good unwooded Chardonnay. Could have done without the kitchen staff's gimmick of shouting out... More

My wife and I arrived at 6 pm to find the place heaving with customers. However we were seated immediately and the service throughout from our waitress Kali was prompt and pleasant. We were given a basket of warm annd very tasty bread whilst we waited on our entrees which, when they arrived, were very tasty. The cheesecake that followed... More

Came to Billings for Montana State Games Ice Skating. Garlic bread on table was to die for! SErvice was excellent. Had eggplant parmigiana....yum! My daughter had classic spaghetti and meatballs. Finished off with cheesecake. Everything about this place was great including the cute shops in the neighborhood. High recommend.

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.
