Great Food, Good Service, Good Price

A take out restaurant in Parry Sound which I have no problem recommending. I have been there many times when I want good Italian food on the run. I have never had a bad meal here.

My husband, son and I had planned to pick up some delicious veal on bun on our way home from the cottage but were pleasantly surprised to find that Maurizio now had a pizza oven. We each had our own personal size pizza; a veggie, a margerita and a personalized pepperoni and artichoke. Wow they were all great. Brought back... More

We have only been once but were very pleased with the food, both taste and amounts. We haven't been back merely for the fact we don't eat out very often.

Don't be fooled by the outside this is a wonderful place to buy authentic Italian pizza and other homemade Italian treats. We had the pepperoni pizza and the apple cheese desert pizza and they were both delicious. For afters we had a cannenolli each and they were wonderful. We have had these in the past from somewhere else and they... More

Wow! Delicious pizza!! I was so impressed... The pizza crust itself was so tasty! It was wholesome and light. Exactly how authentic pizza is done. My son and I had the meatball pizza, chicken pesto, and the Apple dessert one (I don't remember what it was called). My son didn't even leave a crumb of his meatball pizza!! I was... More

To be compared to someones Italian mom is quite the compliment! Thanks! :) Pizza is an art in itself. From the making of the dough, the tomato sauce including the pizza oven all play a critical role that produces an exceptional pizza. Here at Maurizio's we believe that Real Italian Pizza can only be achieved from old school methods as... More

I recently ordered pizzas from Maurizios and I have to say that the flavours were fantastic. That being said, my pizzas were not very well made or cut, but again the flavours were great and I'm sure that the pizzas will only get better in time. I do think that the menu is slightly over priced but that's only "my"... More

Dear keltay8, You may find this hard to believe but I truly value all criticism good or bad. I ask everyone that leaves my restaurant for their opinion on their meal purchase(s). I do this consistently with new and with my repeating customer base. Without such input we could not grow as a business or provide our customers the very... More

I been here a few times now and have yet to taste everything, but I can't wait. If you're on the fence trying to decide weather to go or not. I think you'll enjoy every bite. The only shame is it's quite small. They could use a dinning room.

After checking trip advisor and reading many positive reviews, we decided to stop in for lunch while passing through Parry Sound. We are firm believers of supporting the small independents and thought the food was going to be unique. The lasagna was very bland (and not because of lack of salt, which I do not use myself) and my partner... More

Thank you for you review; it makes me wonder a number of things though. Firstly, why is it that a professional food critic would only have 4 reviews in their profile? 2 at a Casino, and 2 in the town of Parry Sound, I would expect a world traveler with 4000+ reviews and not limited to only Ontario Canada. Secondly,... More

I haven't had the chance to visit often but have been pleased with the food I have had and appreciate the time and hard work that must go into operating such a small town small business where so much is home cooked. The man and his Momma behind the counter will fill your tummy Italian style. Take out only.

The chicken sandwich with sun dried tomato was simply amazing! It was the thanksgiving weekend, the chef made holiday pasta with ricotta cheese n spinach. That was mouthwatering! However, the space inside is quite small. If you have a big group of ppl, I suggest you do a take out :)
