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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
