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

My husband and I recently enjoyed an anniversary dinner at this restaurant. They have a nice selection of choices including a prix fixe menu. The food was tasty, service friendly and atmosphere pleasant.

As stated in my previous reviews , I travel for a living and dine out 4 nights a week and have become an amateur food critic( not by my choice of course) This restaurant is always consistent with amazing food and outstanding service.The Prosciutto e Datteri al Balsamico ( stuffed dates) are a must for an appetizer . Another choice... More

The overall experience is only so so comparing to other Canadian cities we have been to including our home city Toronto. The food is tasty, but not that outstanding. We have definitely had better seafood before. The staff are very nice and friendly. The major reason I gave a rating of three is that the service is slow. I understand... More

We have been coming here for twenty years , for all our special occasions or when we just need some really wonderful food. I have never had a bad meal here. The lobster fettuccine is amazing , so is the gnocchi . Wonderful service and great atmosphere.
