The staff is welcoming and friendly. I absolutely love this place! Try the fish, any fish! He knows how to do sea food. The bread and roasted garlic is a winner with a glass of vino. You will not be disappointed! The ambiance is little Italy. Northern Italian.... my favorite. MMMMMMM.

I just went there for my birthday with my gf yesterday, and remembered how good this place is.

I've lived in the area for a while now, but before I discovered Maurizio's, I always drove to Santa Cruz or SF for great Italian food... Maurizio's is a great authentic Italian restaurant that Morgan Hill can be proud to have.

The place is not too fancy, but has a good balance where you can go there on a date, or go with the family.

Maurizio is usually in the kitchen and will great guests on occasion as they enter the restaurant or sit down... A great little touch, and you can tell that he's really passionate about his place. It's really a great restaurant and should definitely be given a shot if you're a true fan of good food.

Perhaps it's a little bit on the pricier side when talking about Italian food, but it's nothing really worth mentioning.

Give it a shot.

A group of eight of us went to the restraunt with tastes ranging from vegetarian to "I eat anything" appitites. We chose family style so we could taste a number of dishes. We allowed the chef to choose our dishes and wine and found all selections excellent. For appitizers we had polenta, egg plant, calamari and I absoltuely loved the egg plant - would make even those who think they don't like egg plant a true lover of it. For dinner we were served a varieity of pastas, seafood platter, lamb and halibut. My sister hates fish but Maurizio told her the only reason she hates fish is because it wasn't "his fish" - well she absolutely LOVED the halibut!
Food was excellent, staff was absolutely great - I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wanted fantastic authentic Italian food at very reasonalbe prices with a typical Italian atmosphere!

Cons: Can be a bit noisy

I can't say enough about this place. I have read all the reviews, and I think Steve-2006 must of had a bad day or can't be pleased no matter what. All businesses have their good and bad days, but for all this to happen in one for him is impossible at this place. Every time We entertain a guest or visitor we ALWAYS go see Maurizio, Sarah , the kids and fabulous staff. My mother after a year is still talking about her meal to friends when she visited. Steve give it another try. They go the extra mile. Many miles in my eyes.

Pros: great food

Cons: doesn't always have a beef special and his are always FABULOUS

This place is like going home to grandma's house in Italy. Each time we go, we hope we get to wait a bit. Maurizios beautiful wife Sarah brings you a glass of wine and you get to watch a master (Maurizio) at his work. (the kitchen faces the waiting area)Then he usually will give a taste of whatever he is doing at the moment. Mangia!! We usually do not pick our own entrees, we leave it in the hands of Maurizio. We have never been disappointed. His beef specials are usually to die forand his "pinwheel pasta roll-ups OMG!!Just go!!!

I had a favorite Italian restaurant in San Carlos, Ciao Amore, however the business was shut down. What I loved about it was that the owner was actively involved, very personable, talked w/ his guests, and the food was fantastically authentic! I have to say Maurizio's is the same.

My friend and I were trying to decide where to eat in MH and after looking at the menu online we were craving Italian. Maurizio's has a wonderful menu from Appetizers to Desserts. We started off with the Calamari which was light and fresh! It wasn't heavy like some restaurants make it. It was also topped off with three parmesan shrimp which was a nice touch. I ordered the Fettuccini Gamberi. It looked so good that the gentleman next to me commented and ended up ordering the same dish...and it tasted just as good as it looked. My friend ordered the Sagottino di Pollo (chx stuffed w/ sausage, mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes, etc) w/ a brandy cream sauce...YUM. My mouth is watering thinking of it. For dessert we had the "Bomb". Very good as well. Choc & Vanilla ice cream ball with slivered almonds and a cherry in the middle. The Bomb is encased w/ a dark choc shell. Great ending to a nice dinner!

The ambiance is a cross between a nice/fancier restaurant and a Bucca di Pepo. The Bucca comes in only because of the wall hangings. The final wonderful touch was the conversation w/ the owner. Very friendly to the point he was describing his recipes and informed us about his start in the business.

If you are looking for Italian in MH...it is definitely Maurizio's!!

This is easily one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at. We were seated quickly. The tables were close, but not uncomfortably so. We enjoyed one of the appetizer specials of the day. A pasta shaped like a small money purse (think filled wonton shape) then filled with pear and asiago cheese, and served in a Gorgonzola cream sauce..... It was awesome! My wife had the chicken breast stuffed with sun dried tomatoes and sausage and loved it. I had the canneloni.. it was between good and very good.

All in all I would have to say that it was GREAT!! The food was really good, service was prompt and polite, and the atmosphere was nice as well.

Every time I am in Morgan Hill I go to this restaurant. I take my clients too! The food is delicious. I'm always amazed at the right blend of flavors, the perfect texture and authentic dishes. Last time I had eggplant wrapped around a light filling with tomato basil sauce, it was so delicate with fresh flavor. I live in SF and I can choose from 50 Italian restaurants any night of the week, but none of them come close to the authentic dishes, flavors and style of Maurizio's. The staff is always friendly too!

Disappointing food, slow service, and the ambiance of a Chuck E. Cheese made this one of the worst dining experiences in recent memory. Salads and appetizers came out right away, but wait time was 1 hr. from order to entree. The small dining room is way too noisy and has too many tables crammed into it. To add to the distraction, birthdays are celebrated with multi-colored strobe lights and an excruciatingly loud and long rendition of "Happy Birthday". Food was at best, flat.

Pros: Great place if your interested in party.

Cons: No good for quiet romantic dining.

My friends who are regulars took me for the first time last night. It won't be my last. My meal was fantastic along with what I tried of my friends as well. I had gnocchi with a pork rib in tomato sauce. the pork was fork tender and delicious. The service was fantastic. Unbelievably friendly staff. My friends explained that it is family run. The chef has his father, wife and uncle all working there. I am looking forward to going back and trying something else.

Maurizios is very consistently good. All menu items are tasty and they have a nice bar and wine selection.
