Very small space, strongly recommend making a reservation. However the food was to die for, so delicious. And the service was incredibly friendly, attentive and quick. It's easy to miss or underestimate in its current location but well worth it and the prices are more than fair for the quality.
Amazing food, staff, and atmosphere! Most importantly they consistently provide all of the above. Definitely make a reservation. Bonus is if you have a designated driver, parking is never an issue.
Best Italian food in the city. The calamari is so good we always get two. Personally I find that their spaghetti dishes are the gems of the menu. I had the Aglio e Olio this time and it was fantastic. I've had other pasta dishes from their menu but I always end up preferring the spaghetti dishes.
The place is always warm and cozy, the staff are extremely friendly, and most importantly the food is always on point! I've had all kinds of pastas, chicken burgers, and most recently their take-home-and-bake lasagna and I have yet to have a bad experience. Their tiramisu is the BEST tiramisu ever!
Had an amazing meal here. The staff was friendly and attentive. Started off with the mussels and had the featured fish of the day - seared halibut and scallop on a shrimp risotto. The fish was perfectly cooked, the skin was crispy but the meat was still nice and juicy. Finished off with the chocolate espresso torte. Everything was delicious but the fish definitely was my favourite. One of the best resturants I've tried in Halifax. Would definitely come again!
Perfect meal! I wish we had thought to take pictures! My friend and I opted for tonight?s special: salmon with crispy skin on a bed of shrimp risotto with scallops and mussels. The vegetable medley was a lovely accompaniment: julienne carrots, green beans, and asparagus. There was a generous portion of salmon on the plate, and the shellfish was delicious. One of the best meals I have ever had. The service was friendly and attentive as always. Highly recommend this place!
Took a friend here recently who just moved here from Toronto and we both had the scallop carbanera which was AMAZING. We both raved to the staff and were so happy we went. Special gem in Halifax for sure!
My girlfriend and I went here for our first anniversary earlier this week. This place is by no means cheap. But it is seriously worth every single penny. The food will make you pause with every bite. The serving staff are all super friendly and know exactly how much time to give between checking in and how long to check in for. We have already agreed that instead of going to dates at other places once a month we will go here once every two to three months. If I could give six stars I would give seven. PS. I want that Roman bread recipe I could eat loaves of the stuff.
We're proud to be from Halifax and our italian is what makes Mappatura Bistro so great. If you want to try savory coffee then our restaurant is the place for you. Call us at (902) 407-5502 for more info or make a reservation.
