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

The restaurant came highly recommended. We arrived and were promptly seated. The hostess was also our server and was obviously overwhelmed as the service was very slow and not attentive. We were seated near a large group she was also attending. The food was average for the class of the restaurant, but time between courses was unacceptably long. For our... More

Da Maurizio is an elegant Italian restaurant located adjacent to the Courtyard hotel in downtown Halifax on the waterfront. The facility and service are first class. The veal and lamb dishes in particular are excellent.

By chance, our cruise ship arrived a night before our scheduled arrival in Halifax or we would have missed this wonderful restaurant. Again, by chance, we noticed it when walking by and decided to try it. The owner said they didn't get too many cruise passengers because they usually arrive in the morning and leave in the afternoon. We must... More

Da Maurizio is consistently great -- really fine food, attentive service, and great atmosphere for any occasion. The drinks are 'crafted' and interesting. The food is always cooked to perfection whether it is a pasta dish, fish or shellfish. The atmosphere is suitable for any occasion. While a little pricey, it is worth the cost and this is our 'go...

I've eaten there plenty of times and love it more each times. The mussels are to die for. The cost isn't all that bad when you consider what you pay in some restaurants and the food leaves you wanting. They have a menu that for $39 you get and appetizer, entrée and dessert. You can't beat that and you have... More
