Good, solid, old school Italian food in the heart of Halifax. If you can look past the dated interior with old school layout, you'll be treated to some of the best Italian anywhere!
Great evening at this lovely restaurant. We had wonderful food and service. Excellent wine list,too.
awesome as usual!! We always feel like we are visiting an old friend. Service and food is always impeccable! Highly recommend to others who like and appreciate quality!!
Was impressed with how the wait staff worked as a team. Pleasant ambience. Excellent food. A wonderful way to see the new year in!
Fabulous food and service. The calamari is superior to others I have tried.
Great food, great service. The high end you would expect
Thank you for a beautiful evening; a wonderful cap to our anniversary!
Appreciated our server's attention without feeling rushed. Appetizers and dinners for 4 were all delicious with 3 out of 3 steaks being properly done. This was consistent with our previous experience. Notably, we've had far less success at the local specialty steak restaurant! Enjoyed our family evening together.
We have been going to da Maurizio’s at least twice a year for the last 28 years and have not had one bad experience. We have made it Christmas tradition for our family for the last 5 years. The owners and staff are amazing and the food alway delicious!
Amazing service, great food and I would definitely recommend a visit!
Two of party had steaks that were less tender than expected and far too expensive for the amount of food received. Scollop appetizer amount of food was minimal for price.
Service and atmosphere was excellent.
Our waiter was great. Food fabulous. Maybe the appetizers were too big- a had lots of orzo with both my appy and my
Main... but the food top notch. My husband asked for the shrimp with cream and sherry( not on the menu) and it was made for him! Suggestion- put it back on the menu.
Ambiance: light too bright- and we asked for it to be dimmed and it wasn’t possible. That was an issue, but a minor one in a very pleasant evening!!
My wife had a hair in her salad and the gnocchi was bland. But the rest of the meal was outstanding, the service warm and friendly. The business comped our desserts which was unnecessary but very much appreciated.
Overall, very pleasant
First, I have recommended da Maurizio has one of the finest dinner outing in Halifax. Good food with exception table service by a most professional staff. da Maurizio restaurant is our go to dinner outing for special evening fine dinning.
For the past 15 years or so, whenever we visit Halifax we make it a point to dine at da Maurizio - our favourite restaurant in Halifax. Every meal we have eaten there has been absolutely delicious. Last Saturday night I had Romana salad ( a variation on Caesar Salad but tastier) and lamb shank with mushroom risotto. My husband had Italian meatballs and then a veal/lobster combination with lemon risotto. The service was also great - as usual. I would recommend booking well in advance, especially if you want to dine there during the Christmas season.
Had such an amazing experience at da Maurizio. Incredible food and atmosphere. Our server, Sean, was so genuine and helpful. Calamari was delicious as an appetizer, our mains were the haddock and the gnocchi which were so packed full of flavour - YUM! Will be going back for another date night ASAP.
Great food and ambiance! Perfect place for a date night.
We chose an excellent restaurant to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The service was excellent (thank you again Kelly) and the food was delicious. Many thanks to all the staff for making the evening a very special event.
Ambiance great and excellent service. Veal not so great.
Excellent as always
Great Restaurant. One of the best in Halifax!!
Wonderful meal but I miss the table d'hote menus they used to have which were more affordable. Dining at Da Maurizio is now a special once a year treat.
A late night dinner at a beautiful location. Stayed at the Courtyard Marriott and thought how quaint the restaurant looked. Service was wonderful. Great food recommendations. Food was tasty. Wine was delicious. We had a nice secluded location in the back. Couldn't ask for anything more.
I have always found that Da Maurizio is THE place to go for fine dining. I have never had a bad meal or experience at their restaurant. I just wish they were closer to me, as I have to drive over an hour to get there.
This used to be our favorite restaurant in Halifax but that is no longer the case. They didn't have fresh halibut available, claimed there was none in the city, but we had had it the night before at the Bicycle Thief. The cacciucco stufato was ok, not great. There was no gluten free bread available. The salads were unremarkable. The wait staff were attentive and pleasant. The tables were close together. It was , however, not noisy. We won't be returning any time soon, there are lots of better places to eat in the city.
Been a while. Totally forgot how great the food is here. Well done to Tanya for continuing this epic run.
It was great experience
Food was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was outgoing, and friendly. The restaurant decor is a little dated and stuffy, but the food was outstanding.
Excellent service and amazing food made for a great dining experience. We'll be back!
Wonderful meal. As usual.
This being my second time dining here , it is just a lovely place to eat and enjoy a conversation . Our experience was very good beginning with our waiter..? Steven? He was great in explaining some items and recommending some choices. He said nothing would disappoint us and all 5 of us enjoyed our choices. They food was absolutely delicious!
One of our people had to leave as a family situation arose at home he had to attend to. Steven was so relaxed with it and asked what he should do regarding the order already been placed. Very accommodating and gave no attitude at the situation. When our person arrived back again Steven wanted to know what he could do ! Re ordered his appetizer. The entree was already boxed and we all enjoyed dessert.
We asked about an app we had on our previous visit 3 years ago , the stuffed dates. He checked with the chef to confirm they are on the new menu coming out Tues. we are planning another visit for just those !
One thing we truly enjoyed was our ability to have a conversation with our meal without yelling and straining to hear.
A great evening out with family travelling to see us .
Another amazing meal. Portions too large but very tasty!!!
I definitely would not recommend based on this visit, however, I will based on past visits. The main course was not great, service was not great, took forever for the bill, requested it twice, and then had to seek out someone to pay. Needed something, however, staff never came back around until we were almost done eating. When we were leaving, we struggled to find a coat, a worker was standing near, and never offered to help locate it. This location is expensive, and we were there for a special occasion. It was a loss... and the person I brought stated she will never be back
Great upscale restaurant with a sophisticated atmosphere. Food was phenomenal and service was friendly and quick. Definitely recommended!
I would eat here every weekend if u could. Never a bad meal and great service.
Food and atmosphere are fantastic! Tanya and staff went above and beyond when a blackout hit right after appetizers. Candlelight dinner it was! Thank you again!
One of my most favourite places anywhere. Including Europe. Friendly. Quiet. The food is always perfect.
Excellent atmosphere, excellent food and excellent service. Thanks
I was so disappointed in this restaurant. I specified that I was coming from montreal to celebrate my mother 70 birthday and 60 year of arrival to Canada from pier 21. Can you imagine that I was waiting for some kind of candle to wish her a happy birthday since it was on the day of her birthday and NOTHING. I was so disappointed. I had canceled another reservation to eat here and I regretted it!! The ambiance was horrible. The food was good not a five star good but ok.
Next time be more considerate and read your booking notes!!!!
We had an amazing experience. Even though this is a fine dining restaurant we took our kids at 5pm for an early dinner. Tanya the owner and the wait staff were great with the kids. Beyond the service we had an amazing meal.
