“Small Italian Restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

We were a table of 12 and did not fit very well in this small restaurant. The seats were crowded and it was a very lively atmosphere. I ordered one of my all time favorites... Cacio e Pepe! Unfortunately it did not bring memories of this beautifully simple pasta from Rome. The addition of arugula and stock did not add to the dish and I love lots of pepper... its flavor was lacking in this dish. It was probably my fault i should have paid more attention to the menu description. The appetizers were delicious and the pizza also. The lasagna should not be missed. Our service was excellent and nice wines on the extensive list.

“Don't miss Mambo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Seven of us had dinner and were all amazed. Great lively atmosphere. Service was outstanding. Everybody in our party raved about our entrees. We had the server bring extra plates so we could taste each others food because it was so good. Would definitely go back on next visit to Steamboat!

“Favorite in Steamboat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

This was our favorite restaurant in Steamboat Springs on this Spring Break trip. We went once and kept going back. The pizzas are inventive. They accommodate kids really well. Our kids love the crayons and paper on the tables. We always share salads, appetizers and pizzas to start. We love the Italian crepe and the Eggplant Parmesan. The last time we were there, the fish/seafood soup entree was not as note worthy, but the pastas were great. Our kids love the spaghetti and meatballs. The kids meals come with an ice cream sandwich and the homemade gelatos are usually great. Not all restaurants in Steamboat take reservations and Mambo does; we appreciate knowing we'll get a table.

“Slightly above average but not by much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We drove by and decided to give Mambo's a try. We did not have reservations and were seated rather quickly before the ski crowd. Service from Molly was excellent. The kids had pizza and the wife and I had pasta. Both pasta dishes left a little to be desired. The pizza was FANTASTIC.
The pasta dishes were a bit bland and slightly watery for an Alfredo sauce. Overall the atmosphere was relaxing. For the price of the meals we expected better. We'll try Mazolla's next to compare.
