Best Veal Marsala

A friend, a world traveler, says Tesoro’s Veal Marsala is the best she has ever had and she orders it there often. I'm going to try it. I have had the Shrimp Fra Diavolo and enjoyed it.

Was visiting Bangor and read positive reviews. VERY disappointed. Dinner and the place was empty. Very old and not very clean. Don't know what else to say.

Traveling thru Maine and used Trip Advisor to find "best pizza in Bangor" -- was not disappointed! While the restaurant is long overdue for a paint job & new blinds, the pizza was excellent! Yes, the owners clearly are from NY: "how you doin'?" was our greeting.

It's so hard for me to decide what to get...fresh, handmade pasta, or perhaps the fresh, handmade pizza (by far the best in the area)? With the amazing cheesy garlic bread or without? Whatever you order here, you will definitely not be disappointed. And try to save room for the fabulous desserts! Very lovely people and a wonderful dining experience,... More

The food was American Italian classics. My favorite is the pie, better known as pizza. Hand tossed dough for very thin crust with traditional thin layered sauce, mozzarella cheese and your favorite topping! We did have an odd intersection with the owner, she suggested we visit again but come on Tuesday or Wednesday when they are not so busy. ODD!... More

Simply the best Italian food I've had in Maine. Fortunata and Rocko were wonderful. They've been in Bangor twenty years after they moved here from Long Island New York. We had the antipasto salad, cheesy garlic bread, spaghetti in tomato sauce, and a four topping New York style pizza and all four dishes were fantastic! We chatted with Fortunata while... More

From the marinara sauce to the stuffed shells, meatballs and pizza, Tesoros is, hands down, the BEST Italian food I have ever had! They use the freshest ingredients and everything is made from scratch. I highly recommend enjoying a meal at Tesoros. Make sure you don't forget to try the tiramisu!

I can't believe that a restaurant in Bangor's downtown district wouldn't take debit cards. Since we don't live in Bangor we thought we'd try something different than the chain restaurants, saw they were open for lunch only to be instructed that the nearest ATM is blocks away. Either install an ATM or accept the charges associated with running a business... More

This should be the only stop for freshly prepared New York style pizza. There is a limited menu and everything is made to order. So, sometimes there is a wait. However, it is always worth the wait. Closed Sunday and Monday.
