Great waitress! Nice English lady. Great recommendations.
Veal chop is very good but far too pricy.

We look forward to returning

My husband and I really enjoyed this restaurant when we were visiting last weekend! The service was awesome and super attentive, and the food was delicious. If you order the lasagna though, be prepared because it is HUGE! Definitely shareable.

Every time we visit Steamboat we make sure to dine at Mambos! It's a family favorite. The Italian food is excellent, authentic and lots of choices for everyone. Wine list also excellent. Wait staff is also well versed in wine choices and selections if not sure. Pat C. St Paul MN

Absolutely delicious food! There were four of us and we each had something different. Lasagna, Vodka Rigatoni (with an added meatball), chicken Parmesan and the carbonara with peas added. We all loved our meals. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Steamboat!

We visited Steamboat 3 years ago and had an amazing pizza at Mambo Italiano. It was so good that the first thing I did when I knew we were coming to Steamboat this year was book a reservation at Mambo. Still as good as I remember!

We have been going to Mambo since it opened. It's our "go-to" Italian restaurant in Steamboat. Our latest visit didn't disappoint. Great service, excellent food, and we weren't rushed, even on a busy Friday night during ski season.

All the restaurants in Steamboat seem to be wonderful! We had a great experience. Calamari and Caesar Salad were tremendous for appetizers. We both had the eggplant on top of spaghetti: The eggplant was a little think and chewy, but the sauce and pasta was great! We noticed everyone having pizza, so that's what they must be "famous" for!

Chicken parmigian should not be deep fried it should be lightly fried in olive oil in a pan before backing in oven. The sauce was good and the derive was friendly and helpful.

Make a reservation well in advance! These guys book up really quickly, especially on a weekend that a lot of snow is expected.

Julia our server was incredible, attentive, and made great recommendations. The entire meal was to us in record time, perfectly cooked, and the flavor was absolutely incredible.

We started with the LAMB & PISTACHIO PULPETTE which my gf said were the best meatballs she's ever had. I had the RED CRAB & TALEGGIO GNOCCHI, it was rich and decadent. She ordered the CIOPPINO over squid ink pasta. The sauce was insane!

Overall this was one of the best ever restaurant experiences for me, and my gf said it was the crown jewel on the best birthday weekend she's ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant!

We loved our waitress at this place because she was both fun and knowledgeable about wine so we got a good recommendation.

The butternut squash ravioli was the best I’ve had.

Would definitely recommend reservations - it was busy !

This is our GO TO place. The food is amazing! The wine selection is outstanding. We eat like a true Italian family, everyone’s plate is fair game!! The place is always packed so don’t think you can just walk in... you’ll wait a couple hours. But the wait will be worth it... but make reservations.

Place is ok. Noise level is high, tables close together. Food is good, not great. I had Chicken Milanese and there was a ton of salad that was inappropriate to the size of the chicken. Maybe there were hiding the chicken since most would have expected a larger portion of chicken.
