I have celebrated my birthday more than once by going to this restaurant, starting with the cozy Italian styled room and impeccable service and ending with a fantastic full belly feel. The butternut squash soup is something I could eat all day long and not feel bad for it. I also experienced my first escargot, which I learned almost has... More

My family and I dined at Da Maurizio to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had an amazing experience. Everything from the setting, to the service, to the food was to an extremely high standard. The restaurant is in the Alexander Keith's brewery which is a beautiful stone building from the late 1800's. The service staff are friendly and present without... More

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.
