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.

What a great place to eat! Reminds me of the family style Italian restaurants in providence where I went to school. Best pizza in the city, great veal and peppers, and the calamari fritti is to die for. The ladies out front are so friendly, they make you feel right at home. My wife and I eat there regularly and...

An overwhelmingly pleasant, welcoming, and delectable dining experience. Food and service is authentic and attentive. The care, skill, and pride that the owners of this restaurant exhibit permeate both the food and the atmosphere. However, this is not a "posh" establishment that substitutes the superficial for the genuine. This is, simply, a very good dining experience crafted by very intelligent... More

My wife and I have been going there for 17 years. Nothing we have found on the East Coast c ompares. They do not take credit cards, and that is one of the things that keep the prices low. Its nice to go somewhere that they know your name and what you eat. Hope they are here for a long... More

My family recently found Tesoro about a year, maybe a year and a half ago. My parents went for the first time and raved about it to my sister and me. We went as a family and I LOVED their pizza!! They also have amazing peanut butter pie and tiramisu, if you have a little room left. We got to... More
