Description: 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 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. Bring your friends, family and appetite for fun, and we'll handle the rest.

The atmosphere was casual and relaxing. It was a bit noisy with so many large groups when we were there but overall we had a nice time. My husband's and my dinner were pretty good but my daughter did not like her tortellini. The wait staff was okay though it took our waitress a bit of time to get to our table and we had to ask for the complimentary bread (which was very delicious). We really enjoyed the paper table cloth and crayons which helped pass the time as we waited for our food.

This place is run of the mill as far as the menu is concerned. The service is always good. I've eaten in the main dining room and the cellar several times. Again, the food is fine, but Missoula has limited options for Italian food. Seating is cramped in the cellar.

Very warm atmosphere and good food. The Italian bread is fresh baked and very good. The menu has lots of options. Friendly wait staff.

I grew up in an Italian family from Long Island and appreciate finding authentic Italian taste so far from home. Ciao Mambo boasts a stylish ambience, with a touch of romance sure to rekindle amour. My Pasta Ravenna was full of flavor, from fresh artichoke to zesty sun dried tomatoes. The raspberry reduction drizzled on our generous cheesecake added just the right amount of flare and panache. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and very accommodating to some of our dietary restrictions. Our only disappointment was the calamari - fried to perfection but under salted. This restaurant is sure to please you!

Probably should have called ahead, Don't know if they do reservations but waiting an hr in a cramped space wasn't much fun, (Sat. evening). However the food is absolutely wonderful! Been here several times and its always good with a friendly helpful staff.
