I had a recent visit to Da Maurizio with friends and family. I'm happy to say it was just as good as my last report , and that's a good thing. This fine dinning restaurant makes it's success on staying the same . From entry /welcome to deserts and "see you soon I hope" as well as the selections ,... More

We have been patronising this restaurant for several years. We went there 4 years in a raw for new years eve and we go there few times there during spring/summer. The owner/hostess is very friendly and welcoming when you arrive then you never see her. However we do not feel that they really appreciate our business. All these years we... More

I recently went to Da Maurizio for a birthday dinner. It was the first time I went there but I have always heard great things. I am not the biggest fan of Italian, particularly pasta, but I went to the restaurant with an open mind. First off, the atmosphere is nice and romantic. The lighting is dim and the decor... More

My wife and I enjoyed our last meal at Da Maurizo's. It was highly recommended, and it met all expectations. The staff was great, and the menu even better.

Server is nice but the food service was super slow. For the price they charge and based on the nice reviews, I was expecting more. Food is good but did not give me a wow. Calamari was below average. I ordered Halibut for my main dish, it was excellent, but it came 45 minutes after the appetizer. I know this... More

Best way to describe it is 'Cozy'. The menu is sophisticated but lively. The variety is charming and the flavour is exquisite. Presentation and taste are both highly pleasing.Service is swift and accurate but not hurried. Set up and deco are warm and great for relax and intimate dining. My wife and I have tried nearly half the menu items... More

I am a bit perplexed by Da Maurizio. Great food and good service. But we saw two mice run across the floor at the end of our meal. The response from the server was that it was that time of year. While I appreciate that, no so sure I want to experience it in a high end restaurant.

This place fits my criteria for a good restaurant: it's quiet enough that you can have a conversation without having to shout, it's beautiful and well lit, it's comfortable, the service is friendly and attentive, and you can get a decent cocktail (in Canada it seems like their idea of a cocktail in most places is 1oz of spirits.

Had the usual superb special seafood pasta while Linda was babysitting. Felt so guilty! Great staff with wonderful team spirit.

This place was highly recommended but personally I was somewhat disappointed in it. I'm suggesting it might well be over rated by some people. The menu is quiite extensive; service is somewhat rushed and not very friendly. The food was slow in being served but well presented but it really was nothing very special.

Thank Cubatan
