Food was excellent but there was a thirty minute lull between the appetizers and entree. By the time we got our dinner we were no longer hungry. Waitress was opinionated and we think got drunk or high during our meal. Maybe just normally loopy but we don’t think so.

The restaurant week special was outstanding. Karen was an awesome waitress, never rushed us and let us enjoy the evening. Extremely generous portions. One of the best meals we’ve had in Steamboat Springs in 40 years of coming here. I would order the salsiccia appetizer as a main course in the winter...an explosion of flavors. The scallops in squid ink linguine was superb. We look forward to dining at Mambo Italiano this winter. Bon Appetite!

Great food, service and atmosphere as usual. We weren’t as fond of the focaccia bread instead of the usual mambo’s garlic bread however. Hopefully that’s not a permanent change.

Highly variable -- a knowledgeable waitress concerning the wine list and the mussels appetizer was good. The pizza, however, was charred on the bottom and edges. Indoor ambiance was very poor--a profusion of flies and noisy. Based upon this one visit, our first, it is easy to see that another Steamboat restaurant seems to be the consensus as the better Italian one,

We made a reservation for an anniversary. When the younger couple arrived they were seated at high tops in the bar. When we arrived a few min before the reservation time, I requested seating in the dining room instead. Wait staff was pleasant & found us a table. We thought the young, Male host was sort of clueless & that a reservation rated more than bar service since there were several empty tables. Mambo's doesn't take many reservations. Overall, the service, wine, apps & food was very good. Evening would have been less pleasant in noisy bar.

Great table service, with a very well-informed server. Table wines by the glass were superb. House-made pasta is a wonderful experience that all should try. Lots of little extras on the dishes that make it a flavorful delight. No skimping here. The food quality makes the value. Very casual atmosphere contradicts the care given to the food. Presentation isn't the focus here, but flavors and quality is top notch! Affordable culinary excellence.

I have to say the service was very disappointing. We ordered 3 different pizzas. They got one of them wrong. When they said they could bring a new one, it took them at least 30 min. By the time, they brought the new pizza, we were done with our dinner. The waiter was shameless to charge us for the new pizza that she brought way late. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience.

I love Mambo but we were seated next to a wait station and the way the waitresses threw the dishes in the dirty dish trays made so much noise that is was very distracting from our table conversation. I will never agree to sit at that table again. Normally it is a good experience but that was not the case Monday night.

Food as always was great...

We had chosen to eat inside first, but the tables were very cramped and it was very dark and noisy. The hostess graciously moved us to the patio which was perfect. We shared a salad. I chose the mussels neapolitan and the waiter (Will --very attentive) suggested adding the homemade linguine. My husband had homemade tagliatelle. The pasta and sauce was excellent. However, the chef forgot to purge the mussels so they were loaded with sand and pretty much inedible. Hopefully they'll get this to improve the outcome in the future.

The food and service were very good. We really enjoyed our night out at Mambo.

We got the fried cauliflower and ricotta toast to start. Both were excellent.

I got the Berkshire Pork Tenderloin entree and the Limoncello Spritzer cocktail... both were excellent. My husband got the Chicken Parmigiano and said it was good.

So all food and drink were perfect.

The only frustrating thing was that the light bulb in the light above our table was out so our table was a little dark.

Overall, still a great experience.

To start with-we had such a great server, I believe her name was allessa (she’s been there for 5 years). She was so happy, fun, helpful and brought such happiness to our time at Mambo. The calamari was delicious and our dinner was delightful. In the expensive side

We love Mambo and the wait staff is amazing. The major problem is the host station and their approach. We have walked in and made reservations neither seem to matter as you will wait about the same time, even with open tables. I understand not over seating your staff or kitchen but that is not what is taking place here. Your host staff is usually the first encounter for your guest and first impressions are everything! Luckily, the wait staff and food save Mambo as both are excellent!

Wonderful food, good portion value, great service (prompt, courteous). Our group had a fun evening. The only so-so component for us was the noise level - it's a busy, popular place and we sat inside (it had rained just prior to our reservation so patio seating was a "no"). Oh, and definitely recommend making a reservation!

I feel a bit guilty giving an overall 4* because the service and venue were excellent. Portions generous, we all took something home. But we reserved for 7:30 and as the evening went on, service deteriorated. Assumed that they were cutting staff later in the evening. The patio was lovely and seemed more quiet than inside. Really excellent Italian, and we had two Italian heritage friends with us.

Loyal customers but the pasta sauces with the exception of the agnolotti were way too thick like a paste. Service was great as always
