“Always excellent and authentic Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

I came with a large group of people and the appetizers were amazing - crisp calamari although fried, was awesome and always a favorite. I loved the clam linguine which is one of my favorite pasta dishes, difficult to make well at home. Desserts were also freshly prepared - I had a cannoli which I made once at home and it was so much work, I never tried it again. It was very crisp, and the filling oh so creamy. Yummy!

“Authentic Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

The ambiance is authentic Italian at dinner; a little noisy and packed with people. The wait staff is friendly, some speak Italian, and the food is always very good.

“One of the best in Morgan Hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Run by head chef Maurizio. This place is always good. It's a nice place, but always has the atmosphere of a neighborhood restaurant too. Menu is a bit small, but they do have good specials. Good wine list.

“Simply wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Among the best meals in the last few years. Authentic Italian food. Everything was excellent, from the bread and olive oil, the bruschetta, finocci, fish, tiramisu, wines, and service. It is an hour from home and we will make the trip again and again. Reasonably priced especially for the quality of the food. Can't overemphasize how impressed we were

“This would be a 5 star in NYC, SF and Paris - it is a 10 Star in Morgan Hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We ate here the night before an ultramarathon in nearby San Martin. All we can say is WOW!

We did not have reservations, it is a Friday night, and we walk in. "No, can't seat you...but come back in 45 minutes and we will try." Now most places that are even half decent, we would have no luck. But they did what they promised! We went to a nearby brew-pub, returned 40 minutes later and they gave us a table within the next 15 minutes.

We have dined throughout the world and Italian is, of course, one of our favorites. We have eaten throughout Italy - the length of the country, from beach restaurants to ones on the top of Italian Alps - and all in between. Maurizo's deserves to be called an "Italian" restaurant. The food was fresh, authentic and wonderful.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience. From appetizers, to main, to the wine, everything was wonderful. It is obvious they use fresh ingredients - nothing dried or from a dispenser. The flavors were perfectly balanced - bursting when they should, mild when they should.

They have a wonderful wine list as well. We ordered some prosecco to start and then a wonderful Nero d'avola. Prices were reasonable and the wine wonderful.

The staff was very attentive and friendly. They would speak and laugh with us, but also gave us our space when we were talking.

Absolutely a fantastic place.
