Mama Cimino's is a nice diner. We ordered a sausage pan pizza and a banana pepper and Italian beef pan pizza. Both pizzas were excellent with plenty of ingredients for a reasonable price. I also ordered a gluten free fried chicken salad. For gluten free the chicken strips were very good. The waitress was friendly and helpful and the place... More

I've been here many times. It offers consistently good food at a reasonable price (generally a total of about $10-$12/head). You're not just limited to pizza, as they also offer deep-fried chicken strips and fish strips and sandwiches. It's not my favorite pizza, but reliably good. I usually go for the chicken strips ... very tasty and juicy ... and... More

We were desperate for food on a Sunday afternoon and last on our list was pizza/pasta. The only place open in downtown Dixon was Mama Cimino's, (I'm italian and I cant pronounce it) out of starvation we ended up here. It was welcome to see decent business hours AND non-traditional Italian options (pulled pork, prime rib sandwich among others) The... More

I'd read the other reviews on Trip Advisor and was not to be undone by dining in a small storefront type of place in the old downtown area of Dixon. This is, after all, Small Town America. What should one expect? While having to be in Dixon for business travel, I was thrilled to find anything at all that's GF... More

After bar time in Dixon IL, who would expect a little pizza place to have a gluten free crust. Not only was it gluten free, but it had FABULOUS flavor. What a nice surprise!

OK, it's downtown in a little storefront building with a small and aged dining area. But, don't let that scare you. Relax and enjoy a most delicious pizza. And, if you're lucky enought to catch the Wednesday BBQ Buffett you won't regret it. Tender ribs, fresh sweet corn, well cooked BBQ chicken. Yum!

Good food for the value. A real midwest feel to it.

Great erdy nuggets and chicken strip dinner. Erdy nuggets are a deep fried bread with a butter garlic sauce over them and served with marinara sauce. I could make a meal of these things!
