I read the other reviews and pretty much everyone who goes to Tesoro really likes it. To the one who "Wants to like it". Go with you gut and like it. Try it again! The owners work hard for the money and sometimes maybe the are just a bit exhausted. My family has been going for years and sometimes...Maybe Fortunata's... More

just the best pizza we have had so far in the area. The personnel were friendly and the spaghetti was real good. Would recommend you go there and have a great meal.

So many chain restaurants here that we were happy to walk into Tesoro. Good pizza made fresh. Other than that - a pretty ok meal. I think we ate here twice on our holiday.

Don't be fooled by other local pizza restaurants and chains--Tesoro is the best Bangor has to offer.

I got a take out order of pizza one night and the pizza was good and the lady who rung me up was nice enough. My husband and I went there on another night to eat in and the lady who seated announced rather rudely "there's a 45 minute to an hour wait for anything out of the kitchen" to... More

We love traditional Italian food. We usually get an order to go, just so we can relax at home. Be aware, cash only, no checks or credit cards. The veal parm is to die for. My wife loves to get the veal and peppers. I always ask for extra garlic knots, what a treat! The food is excellent, as are... More

Came into Bangor for one night. We came across Tesoro's and were pleasantly surprised. We ordered garlic cheese bread that was great and our pasta dishes were above average as well. Our waitress and the owner were both great to talk with. They mentioned that the restaurant was only 5 minutes from Stephen King's home so we drove by it... More

I have not been to Tesoro in quite some time due to moving, I would say I used to love going here. I would have went more often if they were to accept credit/debit cards but as I would park and walk around downtown, by time I would go to the ATM, I would simply be to hungry and decide... More

I reviewed Tesoro a year ago, and am compelled to write another. Jim and I go to see Fortunata and Rocco just about once a week. We obviously love the food! We are in a rut, but it is nice to go to a place where "everybody knows your name"! Typically we walk in and take our seat. Cindy brings... More

We visited for lunch and the lunch menu was excellent. Prices were more than reasonable and serving sizes/flavour terrific. The dining area and washrooms could use a renovation but the service,prices and food make up for the lack of decor. Don't forget,CASH ONLY!
