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.
All around excellent experience
The staff are so fun and the food was delicious. Try the Queen‘s cocktail.
Wonderful meal!! Service was spot on and the atmosphere was very comfortable. The fois gras was absolutely delicious
Best restaurant Halifax. I liked the previous menu better as more selection on the traditional menu.
But fantastic always. Best ambience, can hear each other talk. They know their clientele and always feel welcome. Best food, top service. Class restaurant yet warm and not stiff or stuffy. Unpretentious elegance always a treat, always a success with guests. Always make any occasion special.
We have always had an excellent meal at da Maurizio’s. It provides an elegant and intimate experience.
Best fine dining in the city. I have never had a dissapointing plate here ever.
This is a must-try restaurant. We have been here several times and it is never disappointing. Take your time, enjoy some wine and be ready to try some of the best food in Halifax.
Very good food but I dislike restaurants where the tables are so close you have absolutely no privacy.
Calamari was not up to usual standards. Appetizers took a long time to arrive (more than an hour) and we were told it was dues to the chef changing the oil in the fryer. When the calamari arrived it was both cold and soggy. I’m guessing that the oil wasn’t hot enough. The waiter quickly took the item off our bill when we told him. However, it did downgrade the whole experience for us.
It is always a treat to dine at daMaurizio when we visit Halifax and Sat was no exception. Despite being Valentine’s weekend, we knew it would be busy, but aside from the location where we were seated, it was a terrific experience.
The service and food is second to none. The relaxed modern atmosphere is only bested by the very friendly and outgoing staff. Having dinner there is warm and welcoming as you are treated like family the minute you walk through the door.
Best Italian restaurant in Halifax. Always a must go to for a romantic dinner
Everything was wonderful, compliments to the Chef and the servers.
Overall Da Maurizio was very good. Menu has changed and lack of veal was noticeable. However I ordered the Veal with Lobster and it was excellent. I would have preferred probably a potato dish as a side instead of rice.
Great food and nice menu selections. Service is top notch and they have a good wine selection.
Service is what I enjoyed and will remember the most:)
Food was outstanding...but the waiter:))))
Excellent as always. The biggest issue is deciding which of the many excellent servings you are actually going to order from the menu.
Da Maurizio is easily one of my favourite spots to dine. I've been here several times and this time brought my two girls for a pre-Valentine's dinner. When two kids are quiet at the dinner table without bickering or complaining about something, you know that the food is THAT good!! Cheers - we'll be back!
always pleasant from the moment you arrive until you leave
Wonderful food and lovely evening as usual!! So tasty!!
As always, the food was exceptional and the service was as well. Our custom French 75’s were perfect:)
The evening at da Maurizio was outstanding.
The food, service and ambiance were all amazing!
We always choose da Maurizio when we want to celebrate.
Tanya and her crew are amazing hosts. Kudos to them all.
Fabulous as always.
My husband and I are from Australia and we were delighted to celebrate our wedding anniversary with superb food.
I booked reservations for 6. The greeting was pleasant, service very good, menu selection great. My sister happened to mention I had a birthday so when my desert arrived, it had a happy birthday greeting and candle on the plate at no specific prompting from my party. I was impressed. We all enjoyed.
I hadn’t been to DaMaurizio in some time and was very impressed that it still maintains the high standards it was known for. I had the Romana Salad (incredibly delicious) and the Cacciucco Stufato which was overflowing with incredible Nova Scotia seafood! We will definitely return again soon.
One of the best restaurants I’ve tried in Halifax. Food is absolutely delicious.
I have eaten here many times and has been outstanding on every occasion. The service is fantastic and the food is unbelievable . Wine selection is very good . Its a perfect size , with great ambiance . Everything is top notch , they did not miss a thing!
Food was awesome. Service was awesome. Only suggestion would be that if the server had asked us, we would have had additional drinks.
Wonderful experience, great food!
Absolutely excellent food! The flavours, the portions was great!
The service started off really excellent but midway through it went downhill. Our server disappeared. We sat for quite some time with our after our main course waiting for her to appear. Our wine and water glasses were empty and was awaiting a refill of both and we were quite puzzled by this. Finally we got the attention of the host and she came over and found our wine and served it along with the water refill. She offered to pack up any leftovers and cleared those dishes away. I don’t remember who eventually showed up to take our dessert orders. It was my daughter’s 25th birthday dinner so this was supposed to be very special. We decided to take our desserts to go as well. Then it seemed like an eternity to get our bills and the packed up food.
They went above and beyond to make our experience great!
One of the finest restaurants in Nova Scotia. The quality of food is equal to any top Michelin rated restaurants in the world. Believe me, I have travelled from South Africa to Australia to China and I always compared them to da Maurizio.
One of my wife's favourites is Filet Mignon with Yorkshire pudding on a bed of Black Rice, this is a dish for the sophisticated palates while genuine Yorkshire puddings are hard to produce and must be consumed within 10 minutes after leaving the oven. Hence most Chef made it more like bread for a longer shelf life and it becomes Yorkshire Bread and not the pudding.
The services of da Maurizio from booking to table are warm, friendly and with attention to all details. Both the kitchen staff and servers always go beyond to please their customers and make one feels at home every visit.
We have always enjoyed our visits especially when we want to show foreign visitors the high standard of Nova Scotia Restaurant. We may be a small province like a sparrow but we have all the parts that an eagle has to fly on our own with grace and achievability.
It's always a pleasure to visit this restaurant....the classiest eating spot in the city. We celebrate every important event (whether happy or sad) here. The food is always outstanding as is the service....particularly from Tanya!
The Reids, Halifax
Good, solid, old school Italian food in the heart of Halifax. If you can look past the dated interior with old school layout, you'll be treated to some of the best Italian anywhere!
Great evening at this lovely restaurant. We had wonderful food and service. Excellent wine list,too.
awesome as usual!! We always feel like we are visiting an old friend. Service and food is always impeccable! Highly recommend to others who like and appreciate quality!!
