This is an old house converted to a restaurant. It serves good food if not the best one can imagine but it has a great atmosphere and modest prices. It is a welcome relief from chain restaurants. It is a great local experience.

I have eaten there twice, one lunch and one dinner. I was very disappointed in the lunch and I ordered the lunch portion of sausage and peppers. I could easily see the bottom of the bowl and the price was way more than it should have been for what they served. The bread and salad were excellent. My friend had... More

We were meeting some family members in Cookeville for lunch and did not really know of any options other than chain restaurants. We checked Trip Advisor and were dismayed to discover that Ralph's Donut Shop was the #1 rated restaurant in Cookeville. We chose Mauricio's based on ratings. We could not have been more pleased.

My first & last visit here. Ordered my favorite...Veal Picata. The sauce was full of diced tomatoes and the Picata sauce was so thick it stuck to my fork! I will not return.
