Great service! Great food! I’ve been going to this establishment since 2008, never have I ever had a disappointing experience. Recommend this restaurant 5 star.
Awesome food and service!
We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The service was impeccable and we all enjoyed our meals a great deal. A fun time was had by all!
The food excellent,service excellent. Wait time for food a little slow but the waiter apologized and explained the delay.
Calamari and beef tartare are great but the must is gnocchi. Loved it.
We had a wonderful meal. Outstanding food, service and atmosphere!
Lovely place, a bit noisy
Truly, the kitchen can seem quite satisfactory only to the uninitiated American, who has not been to decent institutions in Europe.
Beef was still spoiled - and this is the main indicator of the mastery of the chef. Not only that the degree of preparation was not sustained (the wife ordered meat for medium roast, but brought almost complete roasting, dried), so the balance of taste was not sustained by salt and spices, in the middle the meat was no taste and dry.
There is a suspicion that the meat was frozen, and this is unacceptable in restaurants of this level. The meat pillow was already too mundane mashed potatoes, which even looked like a construction coating. They did not even think of adding cream or celery to taste.
I was also surprised at the dismissive attitude towards Foie Gras: not only was he overexposed in a frying pan and served on a burnt crouton, the dish was absolutely cold and he was not even thought of adding any salad. In general, it looked overrated for 22 CDN. The duck was not marinated in advance, so the taste was poor and served all with the same potatoes.
Well, the desserts just disappointed us completely. Sugar, sugar, and sugar again. The choice is meager. Of classic Italian desserts, perhaps only tiramisu. The waitress does not know how to properly pronounce the name of the cake "Pavlova".
The wine card caused a separate bewilderment, I ordered Rose's for wife, but there was only one brand, and it was absolutely mediocre. That is, you are not even given the right to choose.
I ordered online and warned several times that we had an anniversary, none of the staff took care to congratulate and provide a more secluded table. And the waitress had a generally unseemly appearance - dressing so at work in an institution of this class is simply the height of impropriety and disrespect for customers, it remains only to wear panties without a skirt, which would look almost exactly the same as with this short skirt. Ugliness!
My husband (who is a cook) and I both agreed that this was the best restaurant meal either of us had ever had. The server was great, the food was outstanding. We are from out of town, but will definitely be back the next time we're in Halifax.
Hard to find location because of no signs outside but worth the search . Inside Keith’s brewery market place
Simply said a continuous great experience! Staff are very good and attentive, food tremendous, one of the best in Halifax
We tried 4 appetizers, one main course and a desert. Everything was cooked perfectly and delicious. The outdoor patio has ivy covered walls and is very cozy. The restaurant is conveniently located. We especially enjoyed the fresh fois gras which was beautifully presented.
Service was excellent. Food was excellent too. We were not disappointed.
Loved the food as well as the ambiance, which was nice and quiet. In this day it is hard to find a space that allows for quiet conversation. Such a pleasant experience for a change.
Always a pleasure!
I’ve been fortunate to eat many times at daMaurizio over the past few decades. It is consistently excellent. While the dining experience here could have become tired over its long tenure on the Halifax dining scene, this last trip - easily 5-6 years since my previous- only shows that great food and service never go out of style.
Well worth a trip!
This restaurant is delightful and the food was delicious!! We had oysters, arancini, ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs, chocolate dessert like a lava cake with gelato...we drank maragaritas and great Super Tuscan wine...Arumi was our server and the service was five star! Portions were large...their San Mariano tomato sauce was superb..
We were in Halifax for 2 nights made reservations for 7:15. We were promptly seated. This was our last night of our vacation so a good Italian dinner was called for. We started out with the Calamari appetizer
which was prepared differently than what we get in the restrauants we normally go to. The calamari was cooked perfectly with a very light crusting. The base was roasted tomato, sautéed garlic, crushed chilies, lemon aioli and salsa verde. For our main entrees my wife had the Gnocchi and I had the Spaghettini. Both dishes were outstanding.
I would highly recommend this restrauant if you want more than a typical seafood dinner.
We visited for our anniversary. As usual everything was amazing from the food to the service an d everything in between. This is our favorite restaurant in Halifax and we will definitely be returning. Also, Shawn and Karl went above and beyond to make our experience great.
I have been going to this restaurant for many years and they never failed to impress me with their services and the quality of the food
Best ravioli I’ve ever had!
Good food, the dessert was amazing! (Creama and Tiramisu)
All around excellent dining experience. Wine list is impressive and service was great. Seafood dishes were delicious.
Overall very nice experience(food, service ,atmosphere ) not rushed
This was our first visit to Da Maurizio’s to celebrate a milestone birthday. It was truly a wonderful experience from start to finish. Our waiter was warm and very attentive, the food outstanding and the ambience inviting and comfortable. I would highly recommend this restaurant if u are looking for a special and memorable evening out
Awesome, server was very accommodating to special requests 👍
Our new favorite Italian restaurant food is always exceptional and so is a service
This place was amazing! The service was great and the food was out of this world! I recommend getting the Gnocchi ( I’m salivating just thinking about it). Great place! Will definitely come back!
We had heard so much about this place as the #1 restaurant in Halifax.
The interior of this restaurant felt old and tired.
The food was good but not fantastic for the money.
Still I am glad we tried it and it's off our bucket list.
The meal was outstanding as usual. We have been on several occasions and the place does not disappoint every time. Right from the moment you walk where you are greeted by a friendly owner to the wait staff and the food. Nothing is missed.
From the greeting, to the excellent service and superb food I would highly recommend da Maurizio’s.
My wife and I decided to try this place as we were informed that the food is fantastic.
From the time you walk into the time you leave top service. The food is to die for.
It is an upper-class restaurant. I am used to Boston Pizza.
I would go back.
The meals here are crafted with care and the plates are tasty and beautiful. Many seafood options but also other choices. We sat outside and it was lovely. I can highly recommend the tuna tartare and the veal scallopini. The service was impeccable. The prices are a bit on the high side but you are paying for quality and service.
My favourite restaurant in Halifax
Tanya, Bhreagh and her team go over and above every single time.
Proud to host clients here!!
One of the best restaurants if not the best in the city. Matches a special occasion.
It was a great evening. The only issue was the service was a little slow as they were dealing with a staff shortage. The servers were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly recommend here as a quality fine dining opportunity.
Our experience will be remembered. All the food was wonderful but I must say that the foie gras was the best I have ever tasted! Our lamb chops were cooked perfectly and dessert was also good.....the pavlova was an awesome dessert! We would go back again when we visit Halifax.
Da Mauricio’s was everything I expect from a fine dining establishment. We ate inside which is beautifully appointed. The service was excellent..very knowledgeable, very attentive, but never rushed. The food was outstanding and they have a great selection. The desserts, too, were extra special (not just an after thought, as in some restaurants). If I lived in town, I would surely return to try some of the other dishes!
The restaurant is very very dark. Only complaint. Thank you.
Fantastic service and fantastic food. Our server was very prompt and knew the menu well. We were not disappointed with the recommendations given. Amongst our group, we had the (mind my Italian) dates, mussels, gnocchi, fettuccine, and 14oz lamb chop. Wonderful all around!
Our waiter was the nicest person ever! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely and romantic.
