I had eaten at daMaurizio several times since its inception but hadn't returned in twenty years or so. The interior is warm and inviting. The tables far enough apart that one can have an intimate conversation. It is also refreshingly quiet - perfect for an anniversary celebration dinner. Some restaurants are just so noisy that you can barely hear each... More

I've been twice now. I had fish the first time and it was not good -- to much tomatoe and olives -- not what I expected. The second dinner was better but I forget what I had so it couldn't have been exceptional. The service is very good and I like the location, but it was so noisy we couldn't... More

Enjoyed a very pleasant business dinner with a large group in the basement dining room which was private and had a very intimate atmosphere. The food and service were excellent. Strong recommendation if you are taking a large party out in Halifax.

Da Maurizio's has been a favorite for years - even after a change in ownership. Food and service are always consistently good and one can always depend on a good experience.

One of the things I love about Da Maurizio's is the atmosphere. You can wine and dine privately in a quiet setting or in a more open area and laugh and have a great time with friends. The staff read their guest and know how to respond, they'll laugh with you or let you be alone. This visit I was... More

We had a birthday dinner here in February and enjoyed the experience. The service was helpful and efficient; the ambience cosy and warm on a snowy night outside. The restaurant was busy (on a Tuesday night) but we did not feel crowded or unable to talk easily. We chose the fixed price menu and enjoyed our meals thoroughly. There are... More

Three of us had the savour Nova Scotia fixed price menu. A good break on the price for a three course menu. I had what was a Caesar salad (couldn't tell from the description) , penne bolognese (veal) and fruit crisp which included maple gelato. Everything was great and tasty. Plenty of veal pieces in the penne and it was... More
