Haven't been able to get here in a few years but stopped in on this visit to Bangor. The place looks exactly the same meaning if you are looking for white tablecloths and a band keep on going. But if you want excellent food at a great price..this is it..Fortunata is the owner and the waitress and she is kind... More

My wife and I have eaten here several times, and this place never ceases to amaze us. Outstanding food, huge portions, very nice owners, and folks are made to feel as if they are "right at home"! My wife's family is originally from NYC, and we cannot wait to bring them here on their next visit!

I absolutely love this restaurant. The food is wonderful, although I am so obsessed with the pasta dishes I have yet to try their hand tossed NY style pizza. I have watched the owner make it a few times and it's magic to watch him work. I believe the owners are a husband and wife, and they have been in... More

Italian is one of my favorite cuisines, and Tesoro's is my go-to restaurant. Growing up, I had the chance to enjoy Italian cuisine in the North End of Boston and in New York; I find the cuisine at Tesoro's can easily compete with any of those restaurants...and it's located in Bangor, ME. From sauces prepared with local ingredients to the... More

My boyfriend is from New York and I am from New Jersey and we both come from Italian backgrounds so we are accustomed to very good pizza/italian food. Tesoros is the only place we will order pizza from in the area. The owners are from New York and they make their dough and sauce handmade and all the other italian... More

A friend, a world traveler, says Tesoro’s Veal Marsala is the best she has ever had and she orders it there often. I'm going to try it. I have had the Shrimp Fra Diavolo and enjoyed it.

Was visiting Bangor and read positive reviews. VERY disappointed. Dinner and the place was empty. Very old and not very clean. Don't know what else to say.

Traveling thru Maine and used Trip Advisor to find "best pizza in Bangor" -- was not disappointed! While the restaurant is long overdue for a paint job & new blinds, the pizza was excellent! Yes, the owners clearly are from NY: "how you doin'?" was our greeting.

It's so hard for me to decide what to get...fresh, handmade pasta, or perhaps the fresh, handmade pizza (by far the best in the area)? With the amazing cheesy garlic bread or without? Whatever you order here, you will definitely not be disappointed. And try to save room for the fabulous desserts! Very lovely people and a wonderful dining experience,... More
