Fantastic ! I read many reviews talking about the calamari ... I must say it was good but not a show stopper but it was still very solid. As for the rest of our meal ! WOW scallops insane ! Meatballs insane ! spaghettini with shrimp ... on Point ! Gelato incredible ! The food presentation is very traditional Italian but the taste is also which made this meal incroyable in my books !

Always comfortable bringing my clients here. Always a great atmosphere and delicious choices. Everyone loved their apple, main and dessert. I personally love that you have Chablis by the glass!

We went to dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. The service was excellent and our waiter was very attentive. He knew when to come to check-in on us without interrupting our meal. The food was cooked to perfection and had great presentation. When we ordered our dessert our waiter asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. When he came back with our dessert, my wife's dessert plate was decorated with a trim in chocolate spelling happy birthday!

Best calamari I have ever eaten and I have tried it in several restaurants. The food is always so flavourful, service is impeccable. It is one of our favourite restaurants in Halifax.

My favourite restaurant in Halifax. We have been here several times and have never had a single thing fail to meet or exceed our expectations from the time we walk in the door until we leave.

Best calamari I’ve ever had. The gnocchi was delicious as was the Peroni they had on tap. Our waiter Kelly was great, never far but not intrusive. The physical distancing is bang on, the restaurant was steady but you never felt crowded. Highly recommend

We've been sharing special occasions at da Maurizio for 30 years and always enjoyed it. This was surprisingly disappointing. The calamari was soggy; the gnocchi bland; the 4 scallops in the Cacciucco Stufato were rubbery and tasteless, the volume of mussels seemed to be trying to mask the lack of quality in the broth, the shrimp so-so and the halibut missing; and the warm radicchio salad wasn't warm. The tea and dessert was excellent.

Sorry to be so negative, but in comparison to the usual excellent standard, this was a very disappointing $200+ meal.

Our meal was perfect!
The service was prompt and courteous. The menu options were vast making it difficult to narrow down our selections.
We had calamari, radicchio salad and gnocchi as appetizers. Each were 10/10’s. The gnocchi was modified to meet my wife’s dairy allergy and it was decadent. The calamari is the best in the city.
For the main course we chose halibut and veal. The portions were well plated and generous. We enjoyed every bite.
Beyond the food, this was a warm dining experience. We left feeling valued and appreciated. We can’t wait to go back. A special thank you to Tanya for the VIP treatment.

Loved the food. Our waiter Kelly was very nice , very friendly , attentive
I did specify in my reservation that we recently got married , I would’ve rather had a table with more of a view rather than being placed under a set of stairs where you can easily bang your head
Other than that overall nice experience

We love this restaurant. I choose the Escalope of Veal and it just melted in my mouth, the sauce was exquisite, also had the Insalata Romana - perfect! My husband had the steak - he said it was perfection. Our waiter choose the perfect wines and knew what he was talking about - thank you Kelly! Tanya was delightful as always, we love her! The best Restaurant in Halifax - without a doubt!
