“Worth the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I just had supper here for the first time on Valentine's Day. The place was very busy but despite that the service was excellent - prompt, attentive and friendly. The food was fantastic. We started with calamari - fresh and delicious. I had the "Scaloppine di Vitello all’ Astice" which was veal scaloppine sautéed with fresh lobster and finished with a garlic, tomato, brandy and cream sauce. Price $32.95. My friend ordered the "Arista di Maiale alle Albicocche" which was a double cut prime rib of pork finished with a reduction of fresh peaches, sherry, ginger and honey. Price $27.95. I had a taste and it was delicious although I preferred my veal scaloppine. We finished dinner by sharing a "Torta di Zucca e Formaggi" (pumpkin mascarpone cheesecake with ginger cookie crust, served with dolce di leche and garnished with pumpkin seed brittle). It was amazing and perfect for two people to share. It was an expensive meal but the quality of the food, the service and the ambiance made it all worthwhile. Definitely the place to go in Halifax for a very special night out of fine dining.

“Exceptional Dining in Halifax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

It has been many years since I have been at a restaurant as fine as this. Food, service, atmosphere were the best. Staff paid attention to detail without hovering. Always there and followed up on everything. Fine dining and worth every dollar. A restaurant where you can relax and take your time with your meal without feeling pressured to leave. Wine list was excellent with a few wines from quite a few different countries. Menu had a nice list of different options. I certainly will be going back.

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We went here for the first time recently, but will definitely be back! We ate from their prix fixe menu and found it to be outstanding value. The food was excellent, atmosphere romantic and relaxing, and the service was perfect. Many special touches such as keeping 1/2L of wine chilled rather than left on the table (and never letting our glasses go dry!), and serving a meringue with the coffee despite also ordering dessert. Definitely a superb choice for a special occasion or simply to treat yourselves!

“Yum Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have been here three times, each time was delicious. The ambiance is great, dark and romantic for an evening out ( we particularly loved it Valentines Day) although the tables can be packed a little close together. Risotto is fantastic and the service superb. Highly recommended for a romantic evening.

“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My husband and I went to Da Maurizio to celebrate our anniversary. We were impressed with the professional and attentive service, wine list and food for the most part (I would not order the panko crusted haddock again as I was hoping for a large lightly breaded cut, but received 2 small thin bready pieces - everything else was wonderful). We will be back.
