The food and service was top notch. The chairs were Terrible. we both left with backaches
and could hardly wait to get out of there. Very not nice experience. We won 't be coming back or recommending. I am taking another friend out for dinner this week and hoped it would be here, but can't risk another very uncomfy experience. Sorry, I think you sacrificed " style " for comfort.

Don’t visit Halifax often but in between visits I crave my special “Nick seafood Pasta” which is the best ever! Everyone treats us special which means a lot to us old birds! We tell all our friends about this special place and the special staff who make us feel so welcomed!

Great restaurant, impeccable service, which was most likely the highlight of this dining experience.
The food was great, I would rate it 4/5 stars, I had the duck breast and leg confit, although the breast was good, the leg confit was a bit dry to my liking and the sides were poorly prepared/ stale.
On the other hand, portions are fantastic if you have a great appetite.
My wife had the seafood tomato stew which was brillant.
Overall, Damaurizio is by far the best Italian restaurant in town, the food quality and genuine kindness of the staff places them miles ahead of the bycicle thief.

The food was amazing as always! Our server was slow and clearly did not want to be there. Other staff cleared our table after we sat with empty plates and glasses for over 25 minutes.
The Calamari and radicchio salad were perfect and mains never fail.

An excellent Valentine dining experience. My wife and I enjoyed everything about the meal and the evening. The restaurant was very busy but that did not impinge on our enjoyment in any way.

This is absolutely the best restaurant we have ever frequented. It is pretty bad that we got excited making our next reservation. This is our 6th time here over the last year and a half and we have never been disappointed in any course. They have all been excellent and we have now tried about half the menu. We are absolutely excited for our next visit next month.

Chose DaMaurizio's as we hadn't been there for awhile and we were so happy we did, as we all really enjoyed the meal, and the service was outstanding. Tanya and her Team have a way of making you feel welcome, and go out of their way, without being intrusive to make sure everything is perfect.

Food was excellent. Ambience was good. Service was good enough but not sincere. Carafe of red house wine was not so good and badly overpriced making the whole meal seem expensive.

The meal was really good but the place was very busy and tables were too close together. We came at 6:30 to avoid the crowd but even then we were brushing elbows with the neighbours. If the restaurant could combine their exceptional menu and service with a small table in a very quiet corner (that I prefer), it would be perfect for my taste.

We had a delightful lunch in celebration of a birthday and retirement. service was impeccable, very friendly and attentive but not too much. Food was delicious and the setting was so enjoyable. It was not busy so we took our time out of a hectic Christmas time, It was so peaceful and we felt quite special. We'll be back for sure.

Chosen for a birthday treat for a friend who loves food. Service was impeccable. There was a company christmas party going on in one part that was separated off, but this did not affect service. Server was so discreet, one of those where you go to ask for more water and your glass is magically full. Good wine list (needs updating to modern tastes) and not obviously accessible. Still the best in Halifax. Consistently great.
