Excellent Italian and pleasant staff

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... read more

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

While staying in Bar Harbor, my husband and I had a craving for Italian. after reading reviews on trip advisor we selected this place. We called for reservations and arrived early and were seated outside with the option of moving in if we got cold. Service was great and friendly. The food not so great. My husband ordered ravioli sausage... More

we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mama's restaurant. It came highly recommended by our innkeeper, Marion of Mira Monte Inn and we will certainly second that review - loved it and the food was great and reasonably priced

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
