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

Passing through Billings, and this was a wonderful find. So much of their menu is fresh and made one site, including their ricotta, which my husband declared the best he's ever had. The fried calamari was obviously fresh, not rubbery, with a nice breading and great marinara. The garlic bread was amazing with a heavy topping of Parmesan and fresh... More
