I was disappointed that some of the guests did not follow the "smart casual" dress code. That took away from the otherwise excellent experience.

There was a wedding happening which was incredibly loud. There were quite a few tables seated around them, which I’m sure was awkward. I feel as though there could’ve been better planning.

Although the atmosphere was not the greatest the night we went, the food was incredible and the hostess did apologize for the noise level.

I would most certainly go back, hopefully on a quieter evening!

Excellent service from our waiter, too bad we didn’t get to know his name (he is the skinhead one). Super nice guy, warm and genuine. Seafood was outstanding! after all Halifax is a coastal region! Only constructive criticism would be the sauce on the veal chop was a bit too thick and over powered the beautiful protein. Would definitely come back next to we come visit!

Glass had lipstick on it. Main course had hair in it. Waitress was not attentive or personable. Will not try again - there are just as good if not better Italian restaurants in Halifax and without the dirty dishes, things in our food, and with much better service.

The food and service were superb. I have to give a tip of the hat to their original cocktail with strawberry purée -I can’t recall what it’s called, but it was amazing! The steak, veal and fish dishes were all home runs. Love the relaxed upscale vibe, and the ability to enjoy the waterfront after dinner. Just a great night thank you again!

The decor was extremely dated. Quality of the food definitely didn’t match the interior design. There was a hole in the wall next to our table that looked to be from water damage.

The food was amazing as it always is! Tanya is such an amazing owner/manager and makes everyone feel special. Kelly took such wonderful care of our table with great food and drink knowledge and incredible service. The new menu is great fun with classic favourites and new options sure to become classics!
We can’t wait to return and won’t wait for a special occasion because it always ends up being a special evening . Thanks to all!

From the minute we walked in we were treated well. The atmosphere was lovely and even though it was very full, it wasn’t noisy. Our server, Steve, was amazing. The food was delicious and the wine selection was very good. We will definitely be returning.

We arrived and were seated immediately. We went with our three children .. quick to come with bread and drinks , appetizers were pretty prompt In coming out but main courses for took a very long time despite it not looking very busy. The children all had a fettuccine dish that was over cooked and replaced by an Alfredo pasta dish with way too much parmigiana in it. My veal scallopine was great . Lobster ravioli was average. Oysters were warm bu tasty. Wine I sent back and was happily replaced but still not to my palate. Deserts were average . No offer was made to adjust the bill or Comp any food. A little disappointing for the experience we were expecting

Although I had indicated that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, we were given the worst table in the restaurant. This I found odd as our reservation was for 6:30 pm and we arrived early, which was not peak time. Given that our table was at the entrance to the restaurant, which actually appeared to be in the corridor, we decided to leave and went to another restaurant where we were given an excellent reception. The next day, I sent an email to da Maurizio complaining about this poor treatment. Unfortunately, da Maurizio has not responded to my email. This type of unprofessional conduct only confirms that I will not return to this restaurant as they have poor customer service and do not deal with customer complaints.
