We sat at the bar. Ordered a craft beer and a glass of wine. We split a small meat lovers pizza as an appetizer. It was good. I ordered the Penne Vodka Sauce. It too was good (yet the pasta was a bit undercooked). I asked if they had homemade limoncello, they did. And it was the best part of... More

Recent change in ownership, with some changes to the menu. Pasta dishes are generally very good. My favorite is the lobster gnocchi. The best deal in the Boat is Mambo's happy hour that features 1/2 priced pizza. There are no gimmicks, just 50% off a great pizza.

The outdoor patios make Mambo a very inviting venue as you walk by. It isn't just a facade. This restaurant was a treat! The service was good and the food was as good as many Italian restaurants in big cities that I have visited. We enjoyed the outdoor setting on an August evening, but I can see that your food...

I have eaten here many times, and it never ceases to amaze me. The food is authentic and creative. The wine list is wonderful, and the service is amazing. Plus you're in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Steamboat, Colorado.

Ate at a lot of places while in Steamboat and this was the best! Pizza is just great! Flavorful thin crust and the drinks are marvelous. Ample seating; great service and outside seating as well.
