Perfect service and delicious food as always. You must be prepared to splurge as it isn't inexpensive. They are handling the COBID situation very well!

da Maurizio is housed in a beautiful historic stone building on the historic Halifax waterfront - the setting is gorgeous, as is the interior decor. We last dined there on July 24th, 2020. It was a lovely evening and we were able to secure a table on the outside terrace. The service is always courteous, attentive and knowledgeable. Our meal, as always, was an experience. I usually order the calamari (outstanding - best ever!), but decided to try the Italian meatballs. The meatballs are made with ground beef tenderloin and ground veal and served with an award winning tomato sauce - I have a new favourite. For dinner I ordered my long standing favourite, veal with lobster. This dish is also award winning and I Love it. My husband and I consider da Maurizio to be the best restaurant east of Montreal and can compete with some of the best restaurants in Montreal.

Great meal, had three different appetizers all delicious. Service was great, sat outside on patio. They could use some new outdoor furniture for comfort. Above and beyond precautions for Covid. Great time.

The food, service, and atmosphere at Da Maurizio's NEVER disappoints! Because the vibe has always been serene and elegant (but not stuffy), COVID 19 has little to no impact on the experience.

My daughter and I went on a Tuesday night, to celebrate her new job. The menu was slightly smaller (to accommodate a smaller kitchen staff during this time), but there were still lots of amazing choices.

Calamari was perfection. The flavours in the raddichio salad were outstanding. And the deliciousness of their homemade gnocchi has made it impossible for me to eat this anywhere else!

FYI: Even if you don't have space for dessert - dig deep and find it! Tiramisu was over-the-top.

From the obvious care and safety for staff and patrons alike with the steps taken to protect everyone from COVID, to the exceptional wine list, the outstanding service (THANK YOU KELLY!!!), and the dining experience that will not soon be forgotten, I have only very positive things to say. The day was one of celebration, and we could not have made a choice. Thank you!!!

If you want to eat in one of the best restaurants in Halifax .... You have arrived! This is one of our favorite places in Halifax, and while it is weird to be out in the city during a pandemic, the staff and food are amazing. this time it was mussels to start, the veal over the best rizoto ever, and finished with spanish coffee and dessert. The bread is a must! Enjoy!

In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the restaurant was well prepared and took the appropriate measures to protect their customers without taking away from the overall dining experience. The food was typical for da Maurizio - excellent. One of our favourite Halifax restaurants.

We have never been disappointed in our meal, service or the ambience at da Maurizio’s. In fact, we consider da Maurizio’s to be the best restaurant in Halifax - hands down! The service, food and atmosphere are unparalleled. Tanya and Co. go beyond what one might expect from a fine restaurant in downtown Halifax - they have no equal!

Very accommodating of dietary restrictions like gluten intolerance. They have a separate fryer (but need time to heat up the oil) and offer gluten-free bread. I only found out after ordering that I couldn't have the mushroom gravy on my steak. It would have been good to know that in advance, however, the balsamic reduction that was substituted was awesome (would have liked to have more of it).

Calamari was great
Seared Scallops Orzo was incredible
Gnocchi was sub par for homemade
Nice caesar to start
Nice bottle of Banfi at a resonable price.
Would definitely go back, but would skip the gnocchi.
