Mama Cimino's - family friendly Italian dining in Dixon, IL

Mama Cimino’s is a popular local Italian restaurant in Dixon, Illinois. They are particularly famous for their enormous 24 inch “Hurricane Pizza.” I have tried their pizza dozens of times; it’s fantastic, especially for a small town!

Last night, I decided to dine in and try out one of their entrees. I ordered their Baked Mostaccioli, a traditional Italian entree consisting of noodles, marina, and mozzarella cheese. The dinner included a side salad and a bread-stick. I also ordered a side of delicious cheesy garlic bread.
