The best pizza around

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.

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

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

Terrific prices, great food, and wonderful hospitality. Can't wait to come back. Convenient to downtown Bangor and plenty of parking nearby. We ordered some wine and had a chance to just sit and talk.

The place was walking distance from the office. It was downhill from there. The gal at the desk had a negative approach to customers, like you were there to be served by her. The food was OK, but I would be better off going somewhere else. Pricing was good, but I could have gone to the grocery to discover something... More

After moving here from NJ I never expected to find pizza like I was accustomed to down there. The crust is crispy and light, the sauce great and the sausage was to die for!! The owners are very friendly. How did we not know this place existed?? Have found my new pizza/Italian place!! Can't wait to go back soon!!

We were greated as soon as we walked in. We ordered a peperoni and mushroom pizza that was wonderful. Tesoro's is a family owned business and the crust has that hand tossed family made flavor. Unfortunately we couldn't finish our pizza but it was great for breakfast the next morning! By the time we left, we felt like we were... More
