After vacationing here for 17 years, and living here for 10, we finally dined at Mama's. Everything we ordered was delicious. For appetizers we chose the Tomato Basil Bisque, as well as the Meatballs. The bisque was the best I have ever eaten. I sipped it slowly, and savored each bite. Great aftertaste! The meatballs were full of flavor and... More

It was tough and way overcooked. We were here with a group. Others had similar experiences. Nice atmosphere but we were underwhelmed by the food.

We called to make sure this restuarant was still serving. She said yes if we get there before 9pm. We were the only ones there and Nancy greeted us and treated us with kindness and she was alot of fun. We told her she got good reviews but she said she doesn't read them. The food was good too.

The staff was very friendly and the food was of high quality. The only negative comment I do have is that the portions are a bit small. We ordered the risotto lobster cakes, meatballs, chicken alfredo, tomato basil bisque and the stuffed spinach and crab shell pasta. All were very tasty! And the free bread and dip were great!

This is regional italian cuisine; it's not an olive garden. What it IS is phenomenal food, chef owned and operated, and this chef has a darn good eye for his staff, too; the service is also going to be phenomenal. I am very partial to the artichoke hearts wrapped in prosciutto, in a cream sauce (an appetizer) and anything with... More

Quaint little gem and opened all year. Friendly staff with great service. I had the salmon picatta recommended by the waitress and my partner had the meatballs and spaghetti. Both were very good and the portions were large. Highly recommend and will return again.

My husband and I live in Bar Harbor and don't go out to eat that often, but when we do we prefer Mama Dimatteos. It is very unpretentious, the waitstaff is very friendly, food/portions are great and the prices are reasonable. There are a lot of great restaurants in Bar Harbor, but often the vibe is hectic and loud. This... More

A nice restaurant that's quiet and the staff is very friendly. Made our order, we asked for suggestions from the waitress and she was right on. My wife had the baked haddock and liked it very much, I snuck some of the haddock and also liked it. A nice evening at a local restaurant that services the local population by... More
