Great food, beautiful presentation, warm fast service in a stunning setting. Mussels in a tomato sauce that was one of the best I have ever had, followed by braised beef in ravioli in a mushroom butter sauce, yum. Desert was chocolate mouse and dark chocolate flaked capachino. Local wine was also great. Will be going there a lot in the... More

Had a great meal with the family at Da Maurizio last night. Possibly the highlight meal of our two week trip out East (with a number of great restaurants visited). Tomato soup and radicchio salad were amazing. Simple spaghettini also good. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. Service was also excellent. Not cheap by any means but well worth the price.... More

Go instead to the other Italian restaurants nearby, Ristorante a Mano and The Bicycle Thief. Maurizio is too expensive, the food is not as good, and the ambience has problems. The bread was mushy and not Italian in style, the risotto ai funghi was undistinguished, and most is the wines were not Italian. The music was a bit too loud,... More

We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed with our meal. Service is always friendly and efficient and we enjoy the special menus they offer from time to time. Would recommend this restaurant for anyone who enjoys going to dinner for the evening.

Having been to Da Maurizio three times in the past 5 years, I can say without a doubt it is one of the best places in town. Once we went as a family group (adults only), once for an anniversary celebration, and once as a quiet evening out as a couple. I have yet to be let down here. The... More

My wife has been many times, but last winter was my first experience at Da Maurizio and it was truly awesome. It is a little more on the expensive side relative to Halifax but it is still a good value given quality of food, service and overall experience. Great food and wine selections with the staff well versed in popular... More

Excellent service, broad menu selection, well prepared and nicely presented food as well as pleasant surroundings. Also, it was crowded but not inappropriately noisy. Lastly, most diners were dressed appropriately for that level of restaurant, unlike the higher level restaurants of Phoenix where patrons frequently where collarless t-shirts.

Italian cuisine at its best here. Quality of food, service, atmosphere, and choice has this restaurant getting top endorsement. Highly recommend for a upscale night out.

We opted for the prix fixe meal and were not disappointed. For the first course both my husband and I chose the mussels. They were the best we have ever had in a sauce that had great seasoning. For the entree we chose haddock topped with lobster. This was also cooked just the right length of time so the fish... More

I was really excited to visit Da Maurizio as I had heard so many good things about it. Although it was a good experience, it didn't really live up to my expectations. We reserved a table for two on Open Table for a dinner mid-week and requested a quiet table for two. I was a little disappointed that when we... More
