If you're looking for a nice Italian meal a little bit removed from the hubbub of Bar Harbor, this is the spot. It's just a few steps from the Village Green, but the dining room and the tree-shaded rear deck are isolated from the traffic...More

We ate there last night. We came early, so we had our choice of tables. The menu was much as we had seen on the web site. I had the calamari and the linguini pescatore with marinara. While waiting for that, we overheard another couple...More

Nice fine dining; white tableclothes and candles. We had two different pastas and salad, which were family recipes from the owner's family. Good wine selection and desert. Friendly service and delicious food!

If you want fine dining for breakfast this is the place to go. It is definitely worth the experience at least once. My husband and I have "splurged" a couple times for breakfast. The food is amazing and it's special. They offer things like eggs...More

This was a very good meal. Small portions but one of the better meals that we had here in a week. I would go back.

Truly amazing inn, restaurant, location and service. Ivy Manor Inn and Pascone's Ristorante examplifies the flavor of Italy. The homemade meatballs and speghetti meat sauce from generations handed down to the most flavorfull marinara. A must try is one of Pascone's appetizer specialities "Italian Latkes"! The freshest of salad's particularly, the Arugular Insalate with fresh figs. The sauces are flagrant with fresh herbs and the aroma's throughout the restaurant are mouth watering. Not just pasta's, they have thought of everything. Their traditional 2 lb Maine Lobster Thermidor, "unbelievable" and the finest of Prime with the Chateau Briand For Two! Many fresh fish items along with all of the chicken entree's such as Chicken Parmiginao and Chicken Piccata! Be sure to order one of their sensational desserts, the Chocolate Bag For Two! It alone, is an experience in and by itself. Yes, Pascone's at the Ivy Manor Inn has carved it's name in Bar Harbor as "the place to dine".
