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

We went here with family. It was the middle of winter, we were trying to get to the Side Street but it was too crowded. There was no wait here. We had the chicken wings which were great, as were the salad dishes. I had the haddock special. It was broiled. The fish had been over cooked- it was dry,... More

This has to be one of the finest Italian restaurants we dine at. My favorite is their linguini in a white clam sauce. My wife enjoys their Salmon. I have to say I've never had a bad meal at this restaurant. The owner, Eric, is always there to accommodate His customers. Nancy is always checking to make sure everything is... More

Our party of 4 had planned to go to another restaurant but it was closed for the season. This place was packed on a Saturday night and everyone was bustling. I think the mac n cheese was the biggest hit. The salad came a bit overdressed so would suggest dressing on the side. The eggplant parm sandwich was just okay;... More

Based on the recommendations of locals including a relative, we chose to dine here the night before the MDI marathon. We were seated at 6:40 and were served our dinner at 8:15. Our waitress went missing and did not return to the table. She did not explain the delay or ask for another drink order or offer bread. She stated... More

One of my most favorite restaurants in Bar Harbor, Maine. Tonight the specials were Duck marsala, eggplant parmesan, and gorgonzola steak. All 3 meals were so tasty and way beyond anything one would expect. Delicious, orgasmic, and over the top! Thank you Eric for creating a wonderful experience for our pallets.... On a scale of 1-10, a "13".

The first thing that struck me was how dark and dismal it was inside - I could barely read the Menu. Maybe this was to hide the shabby décor? Service was average as was the food. My stuffed ravioli was quite good but my husband's meal of fish pasta was disappointing. Not a place i could recommend.
