Recently, I had the opportunity to experience a great restaurant in North Mankato, Minnesota. Located on Belgrade Avenue, Dino's Gourmet Pizzeria has a great atmosphere with an old school brick wall and tin roof. The restaurant had a number of different specialty pizzas on the menu, but alas, as I was with children, we did not get too ambitious with the order.
The service was timely, and they actually had some neat stuff for the kids to do while waiting. Each table has a large paper on top of it with a bucket of crayons for the kids to practice their artistic abililty. The waitress also brought out a small ball of pizza dough for the kids to play with.
When the food came, the both the cheese breadsticks and the pizza were quite good. The atmosphere and food contributed to a great dining experience.
