    Asked for beef tenderloin medium rare but it was over cooked. Total bill was over $200. Staff were not friendly. It took long for us to be seated even with a reservation and no one said bye to us when leaving even though all of the staff were gathered at the exit. Overall nothing about the experience would prompt us to come back

    The best service I’ve had in a very long time. All the service staff were amazing. We enjoyed our dinners very much. My partner had the Dine around menu and it was fantastic value. Wine selection also was fantastic. We sat in a small room with a rather loud table next to us. But it didn’t take away from our fabulous date night.

    We had a reservation early (5:30) as we were headed to the Neptune for a show. When we were seated there was almost no one in the restaurant, a few more when we left. Yet, we were seated next to a group of eight. It was very noisy at times, and we were seated at one of those tiny tables that barely have room for your plates. I would suggest you request a bigger table when making a reservation. The table service was just ok. The Carpaccio was not to our taste although the pure was very good. We had the chicken parmigiana and Tartufo e pollo, both very good. I highly recommend the Cannoli!

    This was not our first visit - maybe our fifth or sixth. Everything was good but a little off. Service was good but not as classy as usual. Same with the food. Hard to describe.

    Love our server. Scott was the best. Outgoing and attentive to details. A pro. The food was excellent and tasty but could not give it full marks as a couple of dishes were a tad too salty and the espressos were light on the coffee, but the flavours were definitely there. The meatballs and mussels were crazy mad.

    My husband and I dined at Da'Maurizio last night. We frequent this restaurant and have never been disappointed. The dining room is well pointed and the service is consistently well done. The staff are friendly and helpful. The Food is the main event! Our dinner was braised short beef ribs with risotto and cheese. It was outstanding! I highly recommend Da'Maurizo Restaurant. Kimberly

    We celebrated Valentine's Day early. It was exactly as we had hoped. We wanted to go somewhere for a lovely, quiet, leisurely, fantastic meal. This was our first visit to da Maurizio and it did not disappoint. The venue is great in that it allows for various sizes of groups. We were able to select a table that was quiet but not so remote that we'd be overlooked. Service was excellent: friendly and attentive but unobtrusive and certainly not rushed. It was difficult to select just one meal as there were a number of offerings that I would have loved to have tried. The food was delicious and portions were abundant. It was a lovely evening - exactly how Valentine's Day was meant to be. We will visit da Maurizio again. Thank you.

    It was my wife's birthday, and she is gluten-intolerant, so that doesn't always go well in every restaurant. We were very well looked-after - we both had the filetto, which was perfect - another memorable dinner at da Maurizio's!

    No meal had more than 2 colours. Not much had any flavour. Service was slower than molasses on a cold day. Couldn't even figure out who our server was as there was a randomness of like over 5 servers who came to our table.

    Silverware was dirty. Service was slow. Biggest issue was I forgot my cell phone on the table. And the staff didn't seem much interested in helping us recover the phone. Whoever cleaned off the table would have found it. Now the restaurant is closed for 3 days and I'm stuck without my phone for business. This is infuriating the lack of help we received for this matter!!
