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!

“Best of everything”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We ate dinner here and both think this is the best Italian we have ever had. My wife had the Italian nachos. Quite a different take on nachos and they were delicious. I had the ravioli and two big meatballs. It was the best ever. I would have to rate this #1 in the nation. The staff are perfect, you never have to ask for anything, they seem to know when to ask what you want.

“Great food at a great price”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We came with a group that meets 4 times a year from all over the US. This summer was in Whitefish. Our last night in town we came here. We had 26 and the manager was nice enough to seat us all together upstairs. We ate family style (12 different pasta one of each appetizers, and a few pizzas) for everyone to share. This is my list of must haves... Polenta Fritta, Nachos All' Italiana, pasta Ravenna, pollo con formaggio & sun-dried tomato penne.

Reviewed July 15, 2014

We eat Italian food everywhere and this place beats the big cities.
Best eggplant in the world and outrageous fried calimari.
Loved, loved the food.

“Bread, warm, fresh, anything better?”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Happened on this restaurant by accident. Oops, I had not checked tripadviser.
But wait, it was great, the food tasty and plenty of it. Our waitress was perfect. The atmosphere is noisy inside so if the weather is good, go to the deck. Try to go at off times because it is also crowded seating. Many locals were eating here, but we had to keep moving, on our road trip.

“Beyond great”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

The food was excellent. The service was fast and great. What more can you ask for! If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely be going here again. My husband who loves Italian sausage said it was the best he'd ever had. My dish was equally as good. It was worth the extra drive from Kalispell.
