What you'll find at Ciao Mambo are a dimly lit, comfortable dining area, good pizza and super garlicky, hot, fresh bread. The pasta dishes sounded intriguing but we didn't order any. I'd say this is a 3.5 star place from my initial visit.\r
The pizzas were tasty and seemed like a much better value compared to the pastas, which go for nearly the same price. For 5 adults, we got 2 large pizzas and had a few leftover pieces, so the large pizzas are good for 3 people.\r
Wine selection is pretty interesting and has a decent sized list of Italians and wines from the US and other areas.
