Gourmet pizza? Not sure who thought up the name of this place or what people mean when they comment about how authentic this place is. Authentic what? Canadian? Because these pizzas sure aint italian. Nothing wrong with the food or service, its pretty 'standard edition' north american pizza, if that is what youre into then save yourself a couple of... More

Mambo Pizza is my go-to place for take out or delivery pizza. They have an extensive number of pizza options, including some of the most creative veggie options I have seen. What I like best, however, is the option to get four different pizza choices on one pizza - hard not to make everyone happy with this option! The pieces... More

We recently tried Mambo's vegan pizza...now we're hooked! Delicious crust, fresh veggie toppings and authentic cheesy taste and texture. Great service and fast delivery! We also pre-ordered for our staff meeting and it was delivered on time and everyone loved it; gluten free crust too!

They have great pizza down at Mambo's. It's just a little hole in the wall pizza joint but these are often the best places, and this one definitely is.

Not the best section of town. Limited seating but take orders to go. Very good for almost all pizza. Never a bad experience. Can buy pizza by the slice but suggest picking busier times.

If you don't try one of their pizza's you're definitely missing out! Mainly a take-out & delivery business, only small amount of in-house seating. Friendly staff, love what they do = awesome pizza in every bite!
