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!

“Legitimate Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

An excellent choice if you are wanting a great meal and casual dining experience. The food options are extensive and are cooked to order, so be patient as in the end it will be well worth the wait. The portions are large and reasonable in price. And, I almost forgot, their bread, sprinkled with with parmesan cheese, olive oil, "lots" of garlic, and other spices is OUTSTANDING. This is a legitimate Italian restaurant that could be compared with the best in Italy. Whitefish is lucky to have this gem as a dining option.

“Great food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

I had the pleasure of dining here with my two girlfriends on July 13th who had previously eaten here. They raved about the delicious food and casual atmosphere. We arrived by 8 p.m. and did not have to wait for a table. Was told that Ciao Mambo can be very busy and to expect to wait!
Our server James was prompt and efficient! He explained the menu before we ordered wine and salads. The Insalata Mista and Caprese were enjoyed by my girlfriends. The yummy garlic bread was terrific. Two of us shared the Gamberi Fra Diavolo, while the Gamberi al Burroe LImone was also ordered. Great flavor in everything we ordered. Portions are big though!!!
I will definitely be making another visit to Ciao Mambo on my next visit to Whitefish!

“Best carbonara ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

This restaurant is fantastic. We actually ate here twice during our week. The waitress, Kasey remembered us, where we were from and what we ate the first time. Everyone was very friendly and the food was excellent. Beats an Olive Garden hands down!

I have been a fan of Mambo's ever since they opened. Have had several of their pasta dishes - excellent. My favorite is the chicken parmesan - TONS of food. Best dessert ever = Zeppoli

“Wonderful Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Really a nice Italian restaurant in Whitefish. We had a nice table on the upstairs balcony and shared some wine and pizza. The crust was so delicious. The small pizza had 4 large pieces which was more than enough for the two of us. From the balcony we had a distant view of Big Mountain. Next trip will be for the pasta.
