Italian is one of my favorite cuisines, and Tesoro's is my go-to restaurant. Growing up, I had the chance to enjoy Italian cuisine in the North End of Boston and in New York; I find the cuisine at Tesoro's can easily compete with any of those restaurants...and it's located in Bangor, ME. From sauces prepared with local ingredients to the... More

My boyfriend is from New York and I am from New Jersey and we both come from Italian backgrounds so we are accustomed to very good pizza/italian food. Tesoros is the only place we will order pizza from in the area. The owners are from New York and they make their dough and sauce handmade and all the other italian... More

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
