This is a very nice and quaint place in downtown Halifax. Great menu - started with the Scallops, which were great. Then had the Veal with Lobster for my main; excellent. Finished with the three ice cream / brownie dessert...fabulous! My fiancée had the beef tenderloin ravioli and she even let me try some (perfect!). Service was also really good... More

I usually only review restaurants and hotels that I find while travelling but I want to let travellers know that if they are in my city Da Maurizio is an excellent choice for supper. If you are ordering fish regardless of the preparation it will be cooked to perfection. Their specials are always interesting some with sauces that are several... More

My wife and I went to Da Maurizio's for dinner on New Years eve and the food was amazing. They have a mix of traditional Italian cuisine and some Maritime dishes all done with flare and an incredible spice palette. from the appetizers to dessert the food was fresh and flavourful. The wine choices are second to none and complimentary... More

The food was good (not great) but the décor was tired and service was extremely slow and inattentive. You don't get what you pay for here. It felt like a well oiled machine in a negative way- absolutely nothing special. Bare bones service with very long waits between courses. Our bill was over $200.00 for two people.I wouldn't ever return... More

We really enjoyed Da Maurizio. We were given our choice of seating locations (the quiet room or the "happening" room) and chose the quiet room. Our server was friendly and for the most part prompt - there was one extended wait between courses. Everything on the menu has an Italian aspect as you might expect, but there is a good... More

We had made a late reservation due to our travel plans, but found the service still excellent. My husband, a vegetarian, was delighted with the mushroom gnocci, and my squash soup (a personal favorite) was some of the best I've had. Our entrees and dessert were equally tasty, and the waitress' recommendation for wines perfect. We would have happily gone... 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.
