We spent the weekend in Halifax for our wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. I booked this restaurant after reading the reviews and explained it was my wife's birthday and they offered to personalize her dessert. The food was amazing, my wife ate the Chicken Florentine and said it was the best she ever had and I had the mushroom... More

I've eaten here many times, most recently in summer 2013. The food is always exceptional and the service very personal and attentive, considering the restaurant is pretty much always packed. There are not many quiet places for a secluded meal - most of the tables have a rather "busy-bustly" feel. There are some quieter spots though, so just make it... More

I heard so many good things about this restaurant (#1 in Halifax) that we wanted to go for our anniversary. I made a reservation a week in advance and when we got there, it was like we never made a reservation at all. We arrived and said it was our anniversary and wanted something special, so we were shown an... More

It can take a while to find your way into this place, but don't let the sad little mall-like entrance deter you. It's worth getting lost in the Keith's brewery complex to find this place. The main room is long and narrow and a bit crowded and there is quieter room on a lower level for private functions or overflow.... More

Let me start by saying that this was my first trip to this restaurant but won't be my last. I look forward to many years of great food and great service from this magnificent restaurant. I decided to surprise my fiancé with a special night out and as a Chef, I am a tad picky (especially for special nights out).... More

We are Haligonians who frequented the now demised La Perla for their great Northern Italian cuisine. We despaired the loss but discovered Da Maurizio which we would give 5 stars for it's waterfront location, amazing & creative Northern Italian food and impeccable service. We would return in a minute. Yes, it's rather pricey but we felt it was worth every... More

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
