There is. $50 three course menu with some very good choices. We decided to order a la carte. DH had the fish soup which he pronounced was one of the best he has ever eaten. I had the tomato soup which was also excellent. The size of the soup portions is large. The bread is OK so skip it and... More

We enjoyed our meal at Da Maurizio's. The room is elegant and the tables sport fine linen. We split a caprese salad which was fine, just the way you would expect. I Had the risotto which was excellent. He had the carciucco ala Livornese which excellent as well. Nice wines by the glass. Yes its expensive, but worth it.

We were a bit early, but the owner let us in and led us to a beautiful table by the window. My wife had the Fish and I had the preset dinner, which included the best Mussels I have ever tasted, and had the Panko Haddock.

Ten of us made a reservation for dinner. We sampled each other food. Everything was great. Best dinner in Nova Scotia. The mussels were the best I ever had, almost a soup. The seafood platter I had had the same broth with an abundance of seafood cooked perfectly. The pork chop was also excellent. The desserts were good. The service... More

The place is easily one, if not the best, Italian food in Halifax. The waiter we had was eccentric but he knew his stuff. A good character that was a great addition to the experience. Food is kinda pricey, portion are reasonable but the quality is simply amazing.

Da Maurizio has always had a reputation for being one of Halifax's finest restaurants. I remember the food being very good many years ago when I first visited. I have no idea why it took so long to go back, but I returned this evening with family and it was a great choice. The prix fixe menu had many items... More

Fantastic restaurant. Service and atmosphere was great. The Cappesante alla Pancetta (scallops with pork belly) appetizer was amazing. Same came be said about the mains - the linguine with jumbo shrimp and the double prime rib of pork. Good wine list. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Thank Lynne R
