Our waiter, Kelly, was excellent. He was very attentive and friendly. The food was amazing, my beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection, and my husband's halibut was excellent.

Best fine dining in Halifax and has been for decades. Although main course was delayed slightly we were keep apprised throughout. Great calamari and the mussels were cooked to perfection. Always one of our top choices for special occasions. Consistent service and excellent food.

If you are young, don’t bother. They are only polite to you if they think they’ll get a big tip so they only provide good service to people 60 and over.

Seafood Brodon is one of our favourites at this restaurant but it had very little seafood - one scallop, one shrimp and multi mussels.

Drink prices have gone up as well. Normally go a several times a year but since have not been back since their renovations. We won’t be rushing back.

Overall- did not feel it was good value for what we received.

Just ok. Restaurant not busy but yet we felt rushed. Restaurant was chilly. Had the duck which arrived lukewarm & the pasta which was an enormous portion & too creamy. Overheard another diner say that the gnocchi was more creamy & cheesy than she expected. After we had ordered we realized that our menu did not contain the evening special sheet that other diners received. Attention to detail just not there. This restaurant used to feel more special. Not sure we will return anytime soon.

A nice place for special occasions, we very much appreciated the personal touch on our dessert plates for our 30th anniversary, we also liked the very comfortable seating and the service provided by the staff.
We also liked the web site for browsing through the menu before our booking.

This was a great meal experience that our friends, a group of six this evening, and we all thoroughly enjoyed. Our server was Sean and we found him to be very knowledgeable which helped us greatly in choosing our food and drink for the evening. Sean interacted with us in a fun and pleasant way, not too much and not too little. We eat out frequently and we know that we will be returning to Da Maurizio's often.

Outstanding food and service. The stuffed dates with goat cheese and prosciutto were an unexpected treat. Excellent pasta, good portions and presentation, and attentive but unobtrusive service. Someone needs to be trained to use the espresso machine properly, the cappuccino was over-foamed and a bit watery. Noise levels are a high for romance or quiet conversation. When we were there a party of six was having a very exaggerated good time with excessive loud laughter and some shouting in conversation, which was very obtrusive for all around them, and the staff seemed concerned but at a loss as to how to rein them in.

Muscles were outstanding, the sauce was something you just don't get anywhere else. Main meal as well was very good, large portions and cooked perfectly.
Too dark when sun went down. People were using cell phone light to see menu. We were early and daylight was good. A little too noisy for me, not this loud on previous visits.
(You might ask cleaning staff to clean dust off ceiling lights, my wife picked this up.)
Overall very satisfactory.

We ate here during a recent girl's trip to Halifax. We easily made a reservation on-line, and we were seated as soon as we arrived. The service was excellent, and our food arrived in a timely fashion. The pasta was to die for. All of the sauces were excellent and the pasta was cooked to the perfection. All four of us loved our food, and we would highly recommend this restaurant
