Best place to take your date!

Elegant, fine dining in a cozy, almost conspiratorial setting makes Mauricio's a fantastic place to take that special someone for a treat. The new owner has kept the fantastic atmosphere and food while adding some more wonderful things.

Passing through Cookeville on I 40 and wanting a nice sit down dinner I consulted trip advisor. Mauricio's is not far off the interstate and was well worth the diversion. Exceptional restaurant that I would expect to find in a much larger city. Food was fabulous. Service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable!

Authentic, quality Italian food served in an intimate Victorian house with Sinatra playing in the background. Have tried many dishes and they were all delicious! A little pricey, for Cookeville, but totally worth it for the occasional visit. One of my favorite restaurants in Middle Tennessee!

This is IMHO, the top Italian restaurant in the Upper Cumberland. Food always seems fresh and tasty with an excellent variety. Old owners were great and the new owners are top notch as well. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for one of the best places to eat in Cookeville.

If you are planning on proposing to your mate, this is the place. The fireplace, the table cloths, the small cozy dining rooms, the formally attired wait staff. I loved the lobster bisque.

Excellent Italian restaurant in a wonderful atmosphere. The chicken melanese is excellent, and the bread is perfect!

We are not regulars at Mauricio's, but have eaten there enough to make this comparison. We have always had excellent meals at Mauricio's. Ownership has recently changed and we were wondering how this change would change Mauricio's. Nothing has changed, maybe even improved. The food was excellent and the service superb. Mauricio's is located in an old, beautifully decorated and... More

Have visited several times and the service and food are always excellent. Pricey but worth it. The Chef has always been accommodating for special requests due to dietary restrictions.

Had a wonderful meal here again. The Seafood Mauricio is an amazing dish. Wine service not available this time due to a change of ownership and liquor license changes. But they will let you bring your own bottle and you don't pay a corkage fee. Fortunately I had purchased a bottle of red just 30 min before so I was... More
