We met another couple that recommended that we have dinner here and order the lobster ravioli which had a pepper sauce. I ordered that and my husband ordered lobster mac and cheese. I liked his a lot better. The ravioli was ok but the pepper sauce was too much for me. Overall, for the price this place was ok. The... More

Went here for dinner with my wife and son. The service was fantastic, very attentive to our table. The food was very good, my wife had a seafood pasta, I had lobster fettuccine and an appetizer of meatballs. The appetizer was great and the marinara sauce was simple and flavorful. I would highly recommend this restaurant and would eat here... More

Disappointed. We looked for Italian Restaurants in the hotel directory and apecifically sought out Mama DeMatteo's with reservations and everything. It was pretty run down inside and including the patio area. It was also not very well lit. I ordered ravioli and received 4 chewy pieces with a small amount of filling. All for $22! I noticed the couple next... More

We were tired of crowds and found this a few streets back from the main drag. You can eat outside, but we ate inside, the restaurant could use some updating/remodeling. We did have great service, waiter was very helpful, we had eggplant parm and lobster alfredo - we enjoyed both very much - the bread they brought out at first... More

The staff was terrific! Very friendly and helpful. We were allowed to have our dogs sit with us outside, which is the main reason we ate there. But were very happy with our meals - good food that was reasonably priced.

Delicious food, lobster ravioli is very good, wine reasonably priced, everything fresh and flavorful. Staff is personable and attentive and it is evident that Mama is there to make sure everyone's evening is memorable for all the right reasons. Outdoor seating is comfortable and fresh herbs form an aromatic hedge around the tables. A great spot for a late dinner... More

After a foot path hunt through the streets of Bar Harbor we came across this restaurant. Right away we were welcomed and accommodated. We sat outside the ambiance was romantic we ordered a bottle of wine and was welcomed with a plate of fresh focaccia and bean dip. Delish. I ordered the sirloin steak and by partner ordered the little... More

the traffic and number of people in downtown Bar Harbor is tiring. Restaurant is just off the main area but close. quiet with outside seating. Salads were good and a nice selection of main dishes.. I had scallops on pasta with an excellent sauce. One surprise- the lobster mac and cheese here was disappointing. Dry and not much cheese. I... More

Enjoyed my meal as did my 4 friends. Focaccia bread and dip with olive oil was delicious and our entrees were each quite good. Desserts were the perfect ending to a wonderful evening. Enthusiastically recommend.

After a day of fun in Acadia, we returned to Bar Harbor only to find most restaurants were closing early. We decided to try a few side streets and ended up finding Mama DiMatteo's. What a treat! The food was amazing and consisted of a nice blend of seafood and pasta. This is clearly where locals go to avoid the... More
