This place was amazing! The service was great and the food was out of this world! I recommend getting the Gnocchi ( I’m salivating just thinking about it). Great place! Will definitely come back!

We had heard so much about this place as the #1 restaurant in Halifax.
The interior of this restaurant felt old and tired.
The food was good but not fantastic for the money.
Still I am glad we tried it and it's off our bucket list.

The meal was outstanding as usual. We have been on several occasions and the place does not disappoint every time. Right from the moment you walk where you are greeted by a friendly owner to the wait staff and the food. Nothing is missed.

My wife and I decided to try this place as we were informed that the food is fantastic.
From the time you walk into the time you leave top service. The food is to die for.
It is an upper-class restaurant. I am used to Boston Pizza.
I would go back.

The meals here are crafted with care and the plates are tasty and beautiful. Many seafood options but also other choices. We sat outside and it was lovely. I can highly recommend the tuna tartare and the veal scallopini. The service was impeccable. The prices are a bit on the high side but you are paying for quality and service.

It was a great evening. The only issue was the service was a little slow as they were dealing with a staff shortage. The servers were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly recommend here as a quality fine dining opportunity.

Our experience will be remembered. All the food was wonderful but I must say that the foie gras was the best I have ever tasted! Our lamb chops were cooked perfectly and dessert was also good.....the pavlova was an awesome dessert! We would go back again when we visit Halifax.

Da Mauricio’s was everything I expect from a fine dining establishment. We ate inside which is beautifully appointed. The service was excellent..very knowledgeable, very attentive, but never rushed. The food was outstanding and they have a great selection. The desserts, too, were extra special (not just an after thought, as in some restaurants). If I lived in town, I would surely return to try some of the other dishes!

Fantastic service and fantastic food. Our server was very prompt and knew the menu well. We were not disappointed with the recommendations given. Amongst our group, we had the (mind my Italian) dates, mussels, gnocchi, fettuccine, and 14oz lamb chop. Wonderful all around!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in town. My husband and I come every chance we get. I'm not necessarily a fan of the newer menu though, some of my favorites have disappeared, Seared Scallops (although they did allow me to order), Escargot, Braised shortrib etc. Changing it up is always good, but I was a bit disappointed when the whole menu had been revamped.

The food was delicious and beautifully plated, table was nice out on the patio....but patio was very small and tables close together. Waitress could have been a little friendlier and not as aloof . Rather over priced in comparison to other special occasion dinners I have had at fine dining locations, but the family and friends loved it all so that was all that mattered.

There was a large party that arrived shortly after we ordered. A restaurant of this calibre did a disservice in seating us right next to 30 plus party. We were trying to celebrate the graduation of our daughter, with a nice meal, vine, and family. Regretably the experience and ambiane were not up to the calibre of the food

Our experience was so wonderful, it was my first time dining. I can tell you that our waiter was exceptional, humorous, charming, attentive, and treated us as the only two people in the entire restaurant. We were celebrating a date night along with my acceptance into the CEED program. It has been a long time that we have had the opportunity to have a intimate night out. I have to say that we were blown away with the food, service, etc., I felt like a queen. We tried out some new items and couldn't believe how amazing everything was. We will definitely be back again, I love, love, love you guys! Lovely to find a dining experience hidden away in a historic setting AMAZING! Thank you for the most romantic, wonderful evening!

da Maurizio has been our "go to restaurant" for many years. The food, service and ambiance has never wavered. On this occasion our waiter was Holly and she noticed a table had just been vacated which was ever so slightly better than where we were destined so off we went with her. That attention to detail continued throughout the three courses and wines.
