Overall, terrible experience. My wife and I dined here during our stay as we wanted to get away from seafood, and this restaurant didn't seem as crowded. Bad call! We can see why this is far behind on Trip Advisor, and that some reviewers from the Bar Harbor area trying to help, DO NOT. For a summary, the restaurant has... More

We decided to try Mama Dimatteo's one more time. We were not overly impressed the last time but it being only April in Bar Harbor- not a lot of things are open so we decided sure. The restaurant was not overly busy on this Saturday evening around 7 - we were seated in a booth. From this booth we had... More

We recently had dinner at Mama Dimatteos and it was fantastic. We had not been in several years and decided to give it a try, so glad we did. Our food was delicious. Best mac and cheese and their homemade bleu cheese salad dressing is so yummy. Our waitress Kayla was so attentive and our food arrived quickly. We will... More

With many places closed during the winter in Bar Harbor, the restaurant selection becomes limited after a few nights stay. Thus, we found ourselves trying out Mamas. Following the complimentary white bean hummus, for starters, the Haddock cake was good and fluffy, but the semi frozen Caesar salad not so good. Talking with a neighbouring table, we elected to skip... More

Location - Right in downtown Bar Harbor just off the park square. Easy to walk to and plenty of parking around it. Food - The food was pretty good. I didn't feel the need to make that our "go to" spot for the time we were there but it was good. It was a little on the pricey side for... More

Visited here on a cold November night. Cozy, friendly and great old school Italian. Definitely recommend for off the beaten tourist track!

We were in the middle of tourist season, but we're able to get a reservation here on short notice. The Italian food was great. Nice sized portions. They give a side of pasta with everything. The homemade bread is delicious. The wine selection wasn't great but they were generous with the pours. Service wasn't the greatest - the waitstaff reminded... More

Great "old school" Italian food. Comfortable non pretentious setting serving up traditional Italian fare and specials on a nightly basis. All good and the "value proposition" is great.Does not receive the hype and attention that other Main St. establishment, which are not as good, receive. Friendly and welcoming off Main St. location near the fire station delivers a soothing setting... More

Bar Harbor is a fun touristy town. If you crave some relief and excellent Italian food, this is the place.
