My husband and I were here in the very early season. We drove to the top of Mount Cadillac and at the top we saw a bicycler and stopped to talk. He had bike up the entire Mount Cadillac! As it turned out he was the owner of Mama DiMatteo's and he said that we should stop by. And so... More

Great food, and pleasant staff. I recommend the roasted garlic to all garlic lovers! I haven't had a bad meal here and also make it a point to eat here when we are in town.

We had a delightful dinner at Mama's recently and their pasta is delicious. Best clam sauce I've had in a long time and my husband's scallops were very good. The decor could use a little re-furbishing but their outdoor patio must be filled in the warm months. Our waitress was outstanding and really pleasant.

My husband and I love to cook, so eat at home the vast majority of the time. During a recent extended power outage that left us without working appliances, we headed downtown, following the heady aroma of garlic into Mama DiMatteo's. We enjoyed our selections from the surprisingly varied menu and found a warm welcome, great service and a cozy... More

The fig and gorgonzola pasta special was amazing but the steak special was average. The lasagna was very good.

Above average meal. The quality of the food and dishes prepared were tasty. Ambiance was pleasant and what you would expect for an above average restaurant. Would recommend for those who like Italian and seafood.

I hate to say it, but the Trip Advisor ratings are wrong. Mama DiMatteo's is not the 54th best restaurant in Bar Harbor. It is much better than that! We ate dinner their tonight. It was outstanding! A lot of interesting items on the menu, including a long list of nightly specials. We shared a margherita pizza and beef and... More
