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

We were a party of 30. Whoa! I would not have been surprised if service was slow, but they powered through every order and about 20 separate checks with neither delay nor mistake. I had eggplant parmigiana; my grandson had a bella BBQ pizza. Both were excellent and too big to finish. If I lived in Billings, this would be... More

Try the Italian Nachos, awesome. You will not be disappointed, another good place in the older part of town.

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!
