Maurico's ... new ownership, full bar, best bread on the planet. Intimate rooms or large social events can both be accommodated in this charming house on Peach St.

I have eaten there several times over the years, both business and family gatherings. I have never had a bad meal there. The service is always excellent and food is wonderful.

Went there on a monday evening about 6:00 with no reservations, but they had plenty of tables. Bread with olive oil to dip in and the huge salad they bring in a bowl was so good we could've just made a meal out of that....but of course I didnt! Hubby got the nights special, a boneless short rib with grilled... More

During a visit back home to Cookeville a friend told me to check Maruicio's out. Pleasantly surprised, the atmosphere and service were great. I had Papperdale pasta with proschutti and peas and it was delicious. My friend ordered Chicken Mauricio's and she loved it. Salad was served in large very cold bowl and really good bread served with our salad.... More

During a recent road trip to Tennessee, I stopped at two Italian restaurants that were in old, historic houses. They were both stars. One reason it's hard to go wrong is that the layout of houses is conducive to intimate dining, so whether you're alone, as I was, or a couple, or a group, you are pretty much guaranteed an... More

Got the ravioli. Was surprised at how good it was. Amazing bread and salad came with the meal too. My wife had the spaghetti and didn't think it was as good as my ravioli.

The new owners have done a fabulous job of updating the atmosphere & the wine list while maintaining the integrity of the menu. The Chicken Mauricio & the steak are not to be missed!

Appetizers, salads, entrees & deserts are all excellent. Salads are crisp, cold & crunchy. Entrees are large & filling, in fact you can now order petite portion if not too hungry. The atmosphere is very friendly & relaxing. It is an old home converted to a restaurant so many small dining areas. Servers are very attentive. This is a great... More
