This is our second time eating here. Situated in an old stone building, this is an elegant establishment, with lovely table linen, and italian decor. Tanya the owner is welcoming and friendly as are all her staff. They are knowledgeable about the food and wine, and their service is efficient and unobtrusive but friendly. The food is superb and beautifully... More

Lovely evening, dining room is elegant and quiet. Service was excellent, the food very good and well prepared with lots of choices that were not Italian. We were able to talk to our friends easily and the wait staff did not rush us at all. We spent over 21/2 hours and enjoyed it thoroughly. Expensive but a really fine choice... More

Been to Halifax a number of times but this was our first visit to Da Maurizio. Certainly won't be our last. Absolutely wonderful. The food, service, and ambience were all impeccable. Took our server's recommendation on the wine - perfect choice. Well worth the money paid!

A formal dining room with good service. Our only reservation was finding the entrance. You need to go into the brewery and then turn right to find it. Once there the food was excellent, Italian in style but fine dining. One of the more expensive places to eat but still good value.

The first night we ate here we enjoyed an incredibly delicious meal and great service, so we decided to return before we left Halifax. We were a bit nervous about the meal not being as good the second time, but it was even better than the first night. Both meals were the best Italian food we have had in a... More

Our Calamari, Steak and Haddock were delicious. We had a friendly and knowledgable waiter named Kelly who really knew how to create a fine dining experience. Atmosphere and food were excellent. We will be back.

I've eaten here a couple dozen times over the years and it is always outstanding. Unlike many restaurants where you have a few good meals and a couple not so good ones Da Maurizio's always delivers the best. Our latest meal there was no exception. The pasta appetizers were tasty and my main course steak was cooked to perfection. Service... More

From the moment we were pleasantly greeted, we knew that we would have a lovely dinner experience. Staff is attentive, but not intrusive. Meal was excellent. I had the pork tenderloin from the daily menu accompanied by a intriguing carrot soup with subtle flavours. My partner enjoyed the beef tenderloin done to perfection. The calamari appetizer melted in your mouth.... More

This was our first time to Da Maurizio as we received a gift card. My partner is a great cook, and we tend to be frugal, so we wouldn't normally go here on our own. WELL... following our visit and enjoyment of the food, we will certainly be going back. The service was really great and the food... Italian... second... More
