On a rainly night we did not wish to fight for a parking space, but a quick phone call to Mama DiMatteo's confirmed that they are located mere steps from the Island Explorer terminus at Village Green in Bar Harbor. From the moment we entered this cosy restaurant we felt welcome. Our waiter was helpful, friendly and efficient in spite... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel concierge and it certainly didn't disappoint. It's a little off the beaten track but is probably one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. The staff were warm and welcoming and the restaurant was very homey - especially as we could eat outside under the sheltered patio as the rain fell... More

While the menu is not huge, the dishes are excellent. Fish was prepared nicely. Their ravioli were great as were there appetizers. Service was attentive. We were happy campers when we left. We did not try their desserts but they sounded delicious.

This restaurant was recommended by our Inn keeper. We were really in the mood for some pasta and meatballs--nothing fancy just good solid Italian food. Mama DiMatteo's did not disappoint. Friendly, casual, good value.

The appetizers, wine and main course were all wonderful. It's location is tucked away in a nice quiet part of town. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed both eating outside and inside. The staff is always gracious. We are never disappointed! It is a favorite of the entire family.

I was the one craving Italian food in our family, so we dined here tonight. My husband and daughter could not find anything on the menu that they wanted. I had the linguine with clam sauce, which was very good! My husband and daughter shared the lobster mac and cheese, which was also very good. The bread and bean spread... More

our hiking group had dinner (16 people) one of our 2 nights in Bar Harbor several thought it was good, several average. I had the chicken picatta which was bland. The service was good for a large group and the waitress available and on top of numerous requests and they should be complemented for the staffing

The entrees are original and flavorful. I didn't give a 5 star review because the portion size was quite small. I ordered the mussels marinara and my wide had the roasted salmon.

We ate here as a family of four. We enjoyed traditional dishes (mussels marinara), local favorite lobster Alfredo, and more adventurous but incredibly delicious fig tortellini with pancetta. We've been coming to bar harbor for 20 years and this is the place we always return to.
