Our front desk clerk at LaQuinta recommended this restaurant and it was fabulous. The atmosphere great, the service (Katie) was terrific and the food was incredible.

I had the oyster poor boy which was quite good but my husband had the penne Primavera that was disappointing ... artichoke hearts were tough and there wasn't enough sauce - he couldn't finish it. Service and atmosphere was good.

We stopped in at Mambo Italiano for dinner, and it was absolutely delicious. It is a cute locally owned restaurant, and little bit on the pricier side but definitely worth it. I would recommend the pesto linguine - delicious!

Been in business for many years for good reason. Extensive menu with some excellent choices like veal Marsela and cracker crusted halibut. House wines are quite acceptable and reasonably priced. Friendly and efficient service.

Pasta is delicious here, and love the fresh seasonal veggies they always serve. If you like halibut, Mambo knows how to cook it and when it's in season that's where I go for an amazing piece of fish. Went last week for halibut with a...More

They have many salads, especially the steak salad. I would think they could make chicken alfredo with veggies, as it's just garlic, butter, cream, parmesan cheese with chicken, veggies. Skip the noodles or serve over rice... More
