Why did we wait so long?

We had heard all the hype about this place and MH folks tend to jump on the band wagon so we were skeptical. One word. Wow! Before I go any further, MAKE RESERVATIONS. It is that busy and you won't regret it. Their food is truly amazing. The service is excellent, the pasta is excellent and the... read more

I took a trip up to Morgan Hill to visit my son for his 25th birthday and we went to this place to celebrate, based on the reviews. It did not disappoint! Everything was wonderful and the service was excellent. The wine list pricing was very reasonable and our server let me taste a few choices so I could decide... More

The restaurant is small & cozy. The kitchen is open for you to see. Maurizio is usually there cooking and greeting everybody as you come in. The food is fresh and tasty. Order some wine, eat the bread with olive oil/garlic but, be sure the food is always worth the wait. Maurizio is always open to tweaking the menu for... More

I have had the Polenta with Mushrooms and cheese. This is to die for! I also ordered Cioppino. Very well done. Maurizio hires Italians from Italy. His restaurant is small, intimate, and wonderful.

Very frequent visitor over many years to Maurizio's. He himself started many years ago in Morgan Hill and even though does not cook these days the menu. ambience and service a always great. Corkage if you take your own wine is a reasonable $15. Always book for weekend meals.

On our way home from SF and wanted Italian. Checked Trip Advisor, my go to reference. Decided on Maurizio's and we were not disappointed. Loved the garlic and olive oil with fresh bread. The arugula salad with apples was fresh, crisp and tart. The orchietta was delicious and garlicky with fresh garlic. Not too much for me. The rigatoni with... More

Full disclosure - I know Maurizio and his family. Even before we knew them, we would head to Maurizio's regularly. Just great, authentic and flavorful fare. Try the Rotelle di Parma, the veal Saltibocca, or the Carpaccio. Wine recommendations are always thoughtful and reasonable. Well priced and great selection of old and new world. Highly recommended overall.

Maurizio's is a wonderful place for original Italian entrees. Staff is always friendly and helpful. They will make many dishes to your personal preference. Very quaint in size, not really meant for parties over 10 in my opinion.

With a trip advisor review this restaurant being the best in town, one expects something really special. The interior is somewhat outdated and the atmosphere is not that great. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is nice but not 4/5 stars. We had the bruschetta and the calamari, spaghetti and meatballs, salmon end spaghetti bolognaise. Wine is fine.... More
