This is a must stop for an excellent meal in Halifax. Service was top notch. There was no rushing us alone and when we needed a top up of drinks, the staff was there before we had to ask.

A nice place that may be slightly overpriced for a pasta dinner.

Delicious meal and Excellant service. Could have been a little quieter as we were beside the private room with a large birthday party going on. On the other hand it was good to see people enjoying themselves.

Where do I begin? My partner started with 4 oysters which were delicious. Next came the shared calimari followed by my salad. My partner had pasta with huge shrimp. My meal was the seafood dinner with lobster tail scallops mussels. A spectacular mesl

Meal was very good ! Service was slow at the door stood for 10 mins before someone spoke or noticed people at the door felt uncomfortable !

Seems they have a A or B list of customers .....which seats “A” first !

Over all meal seemed rush through with minimal communication from servers !

I would try again based on the food !

I love this place. I don’t eat a lot of red meat or steak for that matter especially in restaurants as my meal is never cooked the way I like it! However, this is the only restaurant where I WILL order steak. Their cooks prepare my steak the way I like it ... just how my mom would cook it! Well done, juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. And the flavours.. omg! They keep me coming back when I am in the mood for a truly good streak! 😊

A wonderful night out
Special birthday for my wife which was mentioned when making reservation
Might have been nice if waiter remembered this little detail to make it perfect
But very minor in my review

We have been eating here for years, service and food has been excellent. We had dinner for two on the 12th February, I had calamari sauce on the side and my wife had the mussels, both very good. We had the seafood stafado and the veal, presentation and taste were very good, the portions seemed smaller than before. The service as always was very good.

Went to DaMaurizio for dine around NS. Three different mains were ordered, haddock, veal/lobster and shrimp linguini. All were excellent. The meatball appetizer was particularly good. Apple dessert with caramel suace and cinnamon icecream was excellent. Exceptional service and noise level was low despite many tables occupied. Excellent food and excellent value. Will be back.
