Had an absolutely terrific meal and the service was outstanding. Waiter was knowledgeable and informative. Had a most enjoyable experience.
Overall experience was okay. Food was okay. Staff/server as recovering from a large party and not able to focus on our needs.
Food was fantastic. Cassandra our server was amazing. Surprise Birthday dessert was delicious and unexpected. Truly a fun birthday celebration
Attentive service with outstanding lunch food options!
Food took a long time. It was over cooked and dry. 2nd time food was off. Can’t figure out why people talk so highly about the restaurant. Fair at best. I guess if you’ve never had good Italian food then your not sure what it’s supposed to taste like. Manager was very nice and understanding. He refunded 2 out of 3 meals.
Food was great as usual!
Blackened salmon was dry and overcooked and not really blackened. Topping was good and thankfully the only thing that added flavor. Spare ribs were very good. Rigatoni was good.
Walleye with egg bstter.
Although we were there the same night as the homecoming dance at a local school, and many students were at Mambo for dinner, the quality of food and service was excellent and the ambiance relaxed and pleasant.
First time but not last. Hip, fun place, yummy food, friendly service. Live music cherry on top!
If you've always heard good things about it, like we did, JUST GO. We're so glad we did. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had made such a note in Open Table and they did acknowledge it with a candle in a dessert. The food is truly made from scratch and you can tell. Yum!
Always a great day experience!
We love Mambo! We have been there over a times and have never ordered off the menu. The nightly specials are always amazing and a great selection to choose from. Food and service is top notch!
Always enjoy our meals. Great food Great service.
Great neighborhood Italian restaurant with excellent food. Our group had the lobster ravioli, steak, spaghetti and lasagna...All were amazing. Excellent ambience and beautiful decor. Owner and staff were all very friendly!
We've been coming to Mambo Italiano for several years now and it never disappoints! For this night, we hadn't been in awhile and were so delighted at how great the food is. I tried the homemade beef and veal raviolis and they were outstanding. I'm still thinking about them 2 days later. Love this place.
Lovely waitress & wonderful food!
We had a great time at Mambo--the food was excellent, all fresh ingredients, I had the branzino and it was fabulous. The fried ravioli is my favorite appetizer--a must try! Mambo makes authentic italian cuisine and has a fantastic environment. The owners and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. Overall excellent dining experience! Highly recommend.
Me and my fiance celebrated four years together and Sunday September 8th we were celebrating getting married. We wanted Italian food with good flavor we tried Mambo Italiano last year and Yes!!!! This is the place and I love the Moscato. Atmosphere! Food! Servers! And the ambiance.... It's all wonderful ❤️
This is our go-to restaurant - love it there! The food is delicious and service is always fantastic!
Great Veal Vesuvio and liked the Potato Soup. Ross did a super job on the service.
Great food and attentive, friendly service. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and they gave us complimentary dessert, delish!:)
Excellent food and service. Personally I don’t like the decor at all
Mambo Italiano is a hidden gem! The food was excellent - great quality, freshness and nice size portions on the entrees. So many choices with their specials for the day! Great service too. We will definitely return!!
Wonderful food ..everything is delicious!
I especially like their eggplant parmigiana . Took my son here who lives in Ca and he loved it too.
Wait staff are friendly , accommodating and efficient .
Always consistently good food !
Great food.Best waiter ever. His name is Nick. Owner comes to all tables to make sure everything is great
Great food, great place and great people!!
We were right next to a large group, more than 20 people which made the service a little slower than usual but not a big problem. They were pretty noisy but that is not the fault of the restaurant. Food was spectacular, as usual. This is our favorite local Italian restaurant.
Our go to place for Italian food - not possible to make a bad choice from anything on the menu and the daily specials are a treat. The wait staff is friendly and doting and willing to do whatever possible to accommodate requests.
we have eaten at Mambo Italiano many times. we have NEVER been disappointed. the food is wonderful and the portions are large.
Excellent wine selection. Authentic Italian food. Always the Best food and the Best service.
The veal marsala was out of this world. Great selection of wines and cocktails. Would recommend making a reservation it seemed to be very crowded.
We love Mambo Italiano!! We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and our dinner and service was wonderful!!
Several entrees were ordered and the eggplant and pollo dishes were fantastic
Hostess sprinted to our table despite having four seniors, two with canes and very slow. Service was very fast, barely a few seconds between courses.
Chef should leave his salt shaker at home.
Service was amazing from time walking into Restaurant. Food was Amazing and delicious!!
Recently moved back to the area and were happy to return to one of our favorite restaurants. Food and service is always excellent. The owners treat everyone like family. Happy to be back!
Our waitress was very attentive and the food was amazing!
I ordered the Italian sausage and peppers. The peppers and onions in this dish were SO over cooked that they were like mush. Additionally, the marinara sauce on it was oily and runny. I had this same dish at Di Piero’s in Lake Zurich and there is no comparison. The peppers were big pieces and were roasted.. not sautéed and the sausage wasn’t as greasy.
Lastly, I felt that the prices were very high for what you got. My friends ordered a bottle of wine to share. It was $33. On line, that same bottle was as low as $7.99.
