We had not been to Halifax in over 10 years and wanted to try our favouite restaurant over the years; da Maurizio. We were not disappointed! It was excellent! My wife and I both had the Calamari and it was extremely tender and tasty. We both had meal sized pastas for our main course, my wife enjoying her Ravioli and... More

One of the best meals I have ever had. I had the seafood assortment with the scallop appetizer with maple balsamic reduction. My wife had a pork loin with fabulous sauce. Great wine selection. Would recommend to anyone.

Haven't been at this restaurant for 25 years or so and it remains excellent. We had a large group and more than expected showed up. The restaurant was very flexible. Our menu was set but choices were great with Haddock, Beef or chicken. Wine was super and it was overall a great evening. Want to go back when can sample... More

For a unique dining experience especially for special occasions and romantic tête-à-tête, this restaurant is the place! Service is excellent and wine list/menu are complete. The place for Italian fine dining in the Maritimes.

Sorry, but this visit didn't have any WOW. Everything kind of felt off. Waiter was good and some of the food was good but nothing made us say "That was great". No other explanation..

Visiting daMaurizzio's will be a one-time experience for us. Though we stressed we were celebrating a "very special occasion," no mention of this was made, nor was any extra that other restaurants of a similar stature might provide, forthcoming. We had heard great things about this place, and it was probably the only fine restaurant we had not visited in... More

I have heard so many great things about this restaurant and finally got to go there for a friend's 40th birthday party that was booked over a month prior....well for me service is just as important as the food and atmosphere, and to be perfectly honest I think a 10 year old could have provided better service. It took 30... More

We visited Da Maurizio on the notion it was a Halifax restaurant we just had to visit. I'm happy we did, but I don't need to go again. Just so there's no misunderstanding, the food was very well prepared and presented. The dishes were good value too, if a bit pricey. We knew that before reserving. But, I can't say... More

The bellstaff at the Harbourside Marriott recommended this restaurant for Italian food and we were not dispappointed. It was a lovely meal with delicious food, a wonderful Barolo, and attentive service. My husband had the foi gras and veal chop and I had the caprese salad and braised rabbit - but delicious and thoughtfully prepared! If we lived in the... More
