Authentic Italian in a Victorian Setting

I've been to Mauricio's twice and both times found the food to be very good and the atmosphere to be extremely charming. I had the chicken picccata the first time and the capellini pomadoro (with chicken) the second time. Both were very well balanced--not drowning in sauce. The chicken was... read more

Lobster Bisque was delicious, a bit lukewarm and a few extra chunks of lobster would have made it perfecto👌. Spinach Salad with Fruit was excellent. My husband had the Chicken Parmesan with a house salad which he claimed was great from first to last bite. Awesome bread already loaded with spices and olive oil - double yum!

This restaurant was in the downtown area off of the busier streets. It was back in a little neighborhood and had a cute patio with fire torches and strung lights. The music was from the 1930's and 1940's. The rooms of the house are set up as different dining rooms which made it feel more intimate. If you want a... More

this restaurant is in a historic home in downtown Cookeville...very Victorian. Has outdoor eating area also but it was too hot the day we went to be outside. Food was very good, the focaccia bread excellent, the salad too. Nice quiet and romantic. Recommend reservations. Chef has specials...usually excellent.

I've been in and out of Cookeville this past year and finally wrapping up business so the gang had a going away dinner. The food was good and service were good. This is an old house that has been converted into a restaurant - so good for both groups and couples.

You call this an Italian restaurant? Great looking restaurant but horrible food. Chicken piccata was gummy and the sauce came from a can. Overpriced for the quality of food you get.

I went to Mauricio's for a business dinner. I absolutely loved that they had two sizes listed in the menu for the entrees. The service and atmosphere were wonderful and the service was top notch. I am in Cookeville often and will definitely return.

Our first visit but certain to not be our last. The four of us had great food, pleasant surroundings, relaxing, subdued, music. Our Server, Sierra, was very attentive and we would likely ask for her next time. My wife felt there was far too much Marinara sauce on her pasta, her Chicken was excellent. We will be back.
