We mentioned that we were looking for a good place to eat dinner and Steve at the photography store suggested Mama DiMateo's. He even gave us a coupon for ten percent off the price of the food. We walked across the village green and were seated promptly even though we didn't have a reservation and the restaurant was pretty crowded.... More

Small restaurant located on a side street. It also has outside seating. Reasonably priced and decent food.

This restaurant has a nice menu with reasonable prices and is located close to the Green. Waitress was very nice, and food was good.

During our last trip to Bar Harbor we found that our favorite restaurant was now closed being remodelled into a Mexican place. Feeling the need for some Italian, we were directed to this place by a cab driver. It needs some serious redecorating on the inside. Looks like they have had water damage at some point as stains were evident... More

It was a rainy night in Bar Harbor- the bars and restaurants were packed- we felt like something other than seafood- so we found ourselves at Mama DiMatteo's. Other restaurants had waits of 30-45 minutes- there were plenty of seats here and at 8pm on a Saturday night, some of the wait staff was being sent home. Our waiter was... More

Dine inside or out the staff is attentive and the food is excellent. After we enjoyed our meals the owner stopped by our table for a visit. Mamma's has been a Bar Harbor fixture for over 30 years. The prices are on the lower side for Bar Harbor and although it's to cold for us in the winter on MDI... More

This stop was just weak. Service was poor and the food left a lot to be desired. Order the lobster picatta and it was just ok and for 22 dollars things should not just be ok. Also found it ridiculous that meat is al carte for the pasta dishes which real began to add up for six children at the... More

Allow me to add to the sea of mediocrity that Di Matteo's deservedly gets. I went against my better judgement and my reliable fellow Yelpers and came here to fix a hankering for Italian to offset several days of shore dinners and seafood. Service was fine but the atmosphere is pretty low brow. All that can be explained away if... More
