Had a business dinner at this restaurant and it was outstanding. This is my fourth time at the restaurant and it never disappoints. The service is very good and the food was excellent. I especially enjoyed the grilled shrimp and avocado salad appetizer.

Have been here previous but it has been a while. Visited on Saturday night with a reservation. I note that a lot of people make reference to this being "fine dining" or upscale and while it is nice, I am not sure that it is what I would consider any nicer then many other Halifax restaurants. We did wear jeans,... More

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing meal at Da Maurizio's. This is a restaurant you choose for a leisurely dining experience not just a meal. The atmosphere is a mixture of old and new, the food is expertly cooked and presented, but it is the service that really sets this place apart from an average restaurant. I would recommend... More

This restaurant is tucked into the historic Alexander Keith's Brewery Building a short walk from the cruise port, city hall, and just a few steps off the waterfront boardwalk. The soup du jour was a wonderful butternut squash with crème fraiche. We really enjoyed the lobster topped haddock and the pork tenderloin. Excellent wine choices and desserts Service was very...

This place is so good, it is old school, a bit on the high side for price but worth every penny. Save up and go! enjoy every bite

Da Maurizio has always been an elegant place you could count on for a lovely, well-priced meal, with high quality service. Not anymore. I took my husband there for a birthday dinner last night, and had pre-arranged for a sparkler candle for his dessert. It was very busy, which is normally a good sign, but the service was terribly slow... More

The owner and staff really pulled out all stops to make great evening for us. Quiet seat, decanted our wine hours before we arrived and delivered a perfect selection of food. We ate five courses and we weren't disappointed with any of them. The gnocchi were little pillows of heaven and the veal chop was perfectly prepared.

We have been coming here for 20 + years- I am uncertain when it opened. Easily , have been there on 20 occasions. Two couples coming twice a year to celebrate birthdays, as it has been our favourite restaurant in Halifax ( and we have though it probably the best of any restaurant we have enjoyed anywhere).
