I visited twice before writing a review. First stop was for a burger I was craving. It seemed to be your standard pre-frozen, slap-on-frying-pan style burger. Fries were okay. Second stop was pizza and garlic cheesy bread, and what got this restaurant 4/5 stars. The pizza (the "everything" pizza sans anchovies) was top notch, garlic cheesy bread was average but... More

We like to have Sunday Brunch at Mama Ciminos. They have really good chicken strips and breakfast pizza.

We have a vacation home near Dixon. We have been here for 4 years and have tried 2 pizza places. One closed and we continued with the other one. So decided to try a new place and that was Mama Cimino's. We ordered what they call the Hurricane Pizza you have a choice of toppings, this was cheese and sausage,... More

in the downtown, food was good kids fair, not so much for the grown ups. they offer a buffet that had shredded lettuce, and many easy open accompaniments. the buffet was good for most anything a kid would want. I recommend that a grown up offer off the menu. Not many fresh choices here. Much of our meal was fried.

They also delivered to the hotel. Thin crust pizzeria crust, great selection of not only pizza but sandwiches and meals also. I would definitely eat there again.

The pizza served at the buffet during lunch is as you would expect, very good. But I think the best thing is the chicken. Especially the chicken strips that are absolutely awesome! They also have a decent salad bar all for a very reasonable price.

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
