My wife, grandsons, and myself were advised by our hotel to try the Da Maurizio for dinner. We were very glad we did. The experience was memorable including spotting Tom Selleck at one of the tables. The italian cuisine could not have been better. Fairly priced. Children's menu. Excellent house cab and pasta which was just right. Would highly recommend.

Very reasonably priced for location. Food was very good, as was the service once the waiter stopped focusing on his friends try the meatball appetizers, absolutely wonderful. Reservations recommended

One of the best meals I've ever had. So delicious. Wonderful place to spend an evening in Halifax. We absolutely loved it. Our server was amazing as well. He had great recommendations. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This place has been around a long time. I have not been here in many years but returned for an anniversary dinner. We went for a Friday 6pm seating as we had other plans later in the evening. Pretty much had our choice of tables. Around 8pm tables started filing up but it still was not packed. Service was good... More

I took my team from work there to celebrate our success in the past year. The atmosphere was great, not too big and not loud. The food was really good and more on the traditional side of Italian cuisine compared to other restaurants in the city. The one area I wasn't 100% satisfied was the server we had. When someone...

We had a very enjoyable dinner. We were seated at a quiet, out of the way table. The decor is very nice and the service was very good and professional. While the food we got was not necessarily particularly Italian, it was quite good. I had a foie gras starter that was possibly the best seared foie gras that I... More

This used to be one of our very favourite restaurants, but it's just not the same anymore. The food is still pretty good, but not excellent, as it once was. The service is the biggest problem. It's arrogant, rushed, cold & disinterested. We're foodies, so we definitely don't mind expensive, as long as the food quality and service warrants. It... More

I have been here twice, and the food is so excellent it melts in your mouth. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, but not intrusive. He was (I believe ) Italian and very professional. It was not over-priced and I think good value for the cost. Best Italian food in Halifax area.

First of all, I have to say that, as everywhere so far in Halifax, the service was good and extremely helpful and friendly. The menu choices were, for the most part, extremely complex, with lots of ingredients. This also seems to be a Halifax thing. We believe that top class ingredients, cooked simply but well, and without lots of reductions,... More

This locally owned restaurant is not to be missed on a visit and should certainly become a regular haunt for locals. Working with only the finest fresh ingredients...the original creations on the menu are reminiscent of true Italian cuisine...some with a Canadian flair...Service is beyond perfect as servers quietly move about the room catering to your every whim.
