It was good, my expectations were higher but I would still recommend. If I were you and I wanted to go out to a nice place I would go next door to The Cut. It was exceptional there.

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.

It's the best restaurant in Halifax. Some of the ambience has slipped due to COVID precautions, but the food and service remain outstanding.

We thought the food was fantastic and the service impeccable. Everything we had was wonderful.

The restaurant easily accommodated social distancing without being obvious. It felt so "normal". Just great!
5 stars..
p.s, We eat out often and the meal we had the other night ranked up they with the best.

Tanya and the staff are always outstanding! They did not disappoint. Despite the limitations related to COVID, the restaruant was set up so well, one wouldn't know there was an issue. The gnocchi is the best in the province (best I've had at any restaurant, anywhere).

Still Nova Scotia's premier restaurant!

This restaurant was only in its second night of doing business since re-opening following the COVIC-19 crisis. I think their efforts to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for the guests were very appropriate. We have frequented this restaurant often in the past and were delighted to find it as enjoyable as ever even if it was definitely different as it was out first night out in months

It was my first experience at daMaurizios and it won’t be my last!
The food was superb, service was wonderful - our server was kind and helpful. There was a group who were a bit loud next to our small table of 4, but that was minor in comparison to the quality of the food and atmosphere in the restaurant.
