Tasty Italian Restaurant!

Located right off the Village Green in central Bar Harbor, I was fortunate to stumble upon this great Italian restaurant. My pasta filled with pear and chicken was excellent...so fresh. My brother said the Chicken Parmigiana was some of the best he had ever had. The service was efficient and... read more

Four of us went to DiMatteo's after leaving another restaurant when the service was awful. The staff at DiMatteo's were 180 degrees better. Our waiter was friendly and quick. The food was served quickly and all four dishes were very well done. Mine was crab and spinach in pasta shells with two types of cheeses and was very good -... More

Dined at Mama DiMatteo's and had a very good meal. Our group had the linguini and clam sauce (white), the chicken saltimbocca, and the house sirloin. All were happy. Order the sirloin a little more done than you normally would...although the taste was excellent

We are pretty picky when it comes to Italian food, but I thought it was a good sign when I asked the two people at our hotel's front desk for a recommendation and they both said "Mama D'Mitteo's" simultaneously. So glad we took their advice! The service and atmosphere were very good and the food was delicious. Great selection of... More

Having been "lobstered out" in Bar Harbor, we craved a break and maybe a nice Italian dinner. My wife's Chicken Picatta was seriously overcooked chicken with a gummy sauce. I had Chicken Saltimboca and the chicken was barely saved from the same fate by a wrap of proscuitto that must have protected it from the worst of the heat...but only... More

We have eaten at DiMatteo's several times and it has been very good every time. The pasta dishes are all excellent, and the fresh bread before the meal, served with a white bean tapenade, was also excellent. It's set on a side street and often not as crowded as many of the Bar Harbor restaurants during peak season, so we... More

We were seated outside fairly fast, but did have to wait quite a while for a server. But once we got service it was friendly, the food arrived quickly and we enjoyed our meal. We had a pasta dish and a fancy mac and cheese dish. Both were good. There are many restaurants to pick from in Bar Harbor, but... More

We dined there about 6 p.m. on a Friday night. There were not many people there, and the Hostess asked for us to wait a little before she seated us. She seemed very busy, perhaps still setting up. A minute or so later, we sat at a table outside. Jared was our waiter. He was very cordial, prompt, and helpful... More

The hostess was warm and inviting and the aroma outside brought us in even with a wait. The building itself could use some work, but the food was very nice. Good pastas and meatballs -- and eggplant Parmesan. Fantastic local mussels in white wine and tons of garlic. Crisp and delicious Caesar salad. I ate everyone's veggies that come with... More

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
