  1. Maurizio will be missed by his customers and friends. I was at the restaurant on opening night 20 some odd years ago. Linda and Maurizio hurriedly darting about getting ready to open the doors, excitement filling the air. I remember it like it was yesterday, sitting in the front window watching the North End walk by. Tens of thousands of happy customers later Maurizio has taken his last bow. Be at peace my friend, be at peace.

  2. Seems like every time I ate at Maurizio’s I had to tell him, “this is the best thing I have ever tasted.” Then the next time he’d cook something even better.
    My condolences go to all his family and loved ones.

  3. I was one of their first customers as well and sat at the front window motioning people to come in as the food was wonderful. My wife and I considered Maurizio and Linda as special friends and ate with them each fall when we would return to Boston. This year will not be the same! Our sympathy to the family and loved ones, especially Linda. God bless!

  4. RIP, Maurizio….You were a wonderful, caring man who truly cared about your customers’ experiences…and the North End will not be the same without you. We so enjoyed working with you on the harbor, which I know you loved to do when you could! 🙂

    Now you join Capt. Phil – who also sadly succumbed to cancer in December – in eternal rest.
    RIP, our friend…andwe send prayers to Linda and all his family and friends.

  5. What fond memories I have of every meal I’ve had at Maurizio’s. There has rarely been a trip to Boston [from home in Maine] over the years during which a visit to Maurizio’s wasn’t a part. The North End has lost a dear and talented capocuoco. My condolences to family and friends.

  6. This is truly heartbreaking news. I havent been to Maurizios in 15 years since leaving Boston. Even though so much time has passed the memory of this wonderful restaurant and the great people I met there will never fade. I brought my parents to Maurizios when they visited from Chicago. They talk about it to this day. I would like Maurizios family to know that he brought happiness to people from all over this country who had the pleasure of dining in Bostons north end.
