I am a Halifax local and love going out to eat. In the 8 times I have visited Da Maurizio I have never had a bad experience. I especially love to go sit at the bar and snack on delicious cocktail olives while I wait for my food. The calamari is exceptional.
I am always especially impressed with the level of service I receive here. The hostess is incredible and whether I have been part of a table of 20 or one of two people snacking at the bar I have never had an unanswered need. I am a huge fan of their lobster risotto and even though it is no longer on the menu, the chefs make it for me any time I ask. I always order an appetizer portion as my main and most times leave with extra. In addition to this when I brought my roommate, who is a vegetarian, she was blown away. She really wanted the gnocchi (which is severed with Bolognese) and when she asked if it was possible to have it vegetarian, not only could they confidently accommodate without asking the kitchen, but the server presented four choices of how it could be prepared.
This is an expensive restaurant for sure. But if you are looking to treat yourself it is definitely worth it.
