Description: The lights are low, the music is turned up, wine is flowing, and the energy is buzzing in the air. It’s a perfect evening and the perfect setting for…Italian food at MAMBO’S. 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 Southern 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. If the atmosphere and friendly service don't seduce you, the pasta will. Bring your friends, family and appetite for fun, and we'll handle the rest. Come on in, your table is waiting!

“Good, basic food”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Restaurant was full and "hopping", even on a weeknight, but we were seated promptly.
Service was prompt and helpful. She explained that we could combine about any pasta and sauce. Meal was tasty, and portion size was good.
We would go back.

“The Food and Service are both marvelous!!”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

This restaurant was recommended to us by the front desk clerk - and it was a fabulous find! The food was truly outstanding - and they are very accommodating is you want something just a little different than what is on the menu. Our server was Darcie - and she was perfect - checked back often enough to ensure we had what we needed - but not so often as to be a pest. The entire experience was super. If you're in Whitefish - be SURE and try Ciao Mambo!

“great place!”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

My family went there for dinner last night (Thursday), and it was as good as ever. The service was fast and friendly. The food came quick and was hot and tasty. Our waitress did not miss a step on getting more of their delicious garlic bread or filling up our drinks. We had an additional meal to go, which came out at the exact time we were ready to head home. This place is in sharp contract to the Rising Sun Bistro in Kalispell, which has the worst service in the valley.

“Food and staff were excellent!”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Wasn't really in the mood for a sit down heavy meal as we typically prefer the Saloons like Moose's or the Bull Dog, but friends said you have to try it. Wow! We were all blown away at how great the food is here, even the pickiest of the kids all cleaned up their plates! They have a Vodka sauce that is to die for! If you love real Italion food don't deprive yourself of this place! Don't even get me started on the deserts!
