You must go if your in Parry Sound area! You can even have Italian TAKE OUT to bring back with you to your cottage, what more could you ask for? I couldn't give you a reason NOT to GO to this sweet little Italian dream of a restaurant! They have daily specials and food already prepared, or you can order... More

This past weekend had the time to take a trip back up to Parry Sound and boy was I happy to drop by Maurizio's again. I just can't get enough of those Rice Balls, and tried the Spinach/Ricotta stuffed ravioli for the first time....WOW and YUM, need I say more? They're always taking the extra step....Customer Service that goes above... More

Great home cooked meals, deserts and Italian coffee. A small selection of other drinks are served. Excellent customer service was provided. You can have take away but we dined at the table inside but we could of sat at either of the couple of tables outside.

Classic 3 course quick Italian meal. Main dish, followed by a dessert and an espresso or cappuccino. Simple but satisfying. We are pleased you enjoyed your food and look forward to your next visit! More

I am often disappointed when I try Italian because both my parents are/were Italian; such was not the case with Maurizio's!! The food they serve is definitely a taste of Italy. I can't wait to try everything on their menu; the lasagna was superb. Watch Maurizio make a cappuccino; it's is like he is creating art. I am sad that... More

I know the feeling only too well, I always order something other then italian when I'm out. Its so hard not to compare when you've grown up eating Italian food like this all your life. And we are humbled that you've compared us to your own families cooking. Thats a huge compliment in its self. Thank you so much for... More

It makes me smile when I hear people refer us to the Taste of Italy; a nation of such history. It makes me proud of my parents heritage to know they grew up in such a wonderful land and are now sharing our family recipes with everyone here in Canada and abroad. Thank you. More

I had the veal sandwich today. It was great. No matter what you have there you will not be disappointed. If you have ever been to Italy it's Just like going there. You walk in you get your food and pay and walk out. Great place for a quick lunch. Best food I've ever had

I recently visited Parry Sound and popped into Maurizio's for the second time. I ordered lasagna and panzerotti and was very satisfied. I am looking forward to trying veal on a bun, rice balls and stuffed peppers to name a few. I feel that Maurizio's is a wonderful addition to Parry Sound!

Thank you for noticing our biodegradable take out containers. The idea to go completely GREEN with products was invoked before we opened our doors. The way we see it, "Home Made' means something to us. It means fresh, natural, wholesome and healthy; the way everyone deserves to be eating. It would have been hypocritical for us not try to adopt... More

The home made tomato sauce and seasoning is a perfect marriage with our fine cuts of veal. Truly an age old family recipe. In your next passing ask us about our Porchetta on a bun. Ancient recipe for pulled pork without the messy sauces, simple seasoning yet very flavourful. More
