Here is a treat for you!! Late Fall, 2003, I was introduced to this vernacular, late Victorian Farm House on the west side of Historic Cookeville where much to my surprise, I discovered there is real Italian cuisine in the rural environs of the Upper-Cumberland; I do mean real.... The fair maiden who lead me here was a captivating Lass... More

The atmosphere was very cozy, excellent for a romantic night out with my spouse. The food was wonderful. My husband and I both loved our food.

Visiting from out of town for a couple of nights. Really had high hopes and was disappointed. I know marinara can be an individual preference but my wife and I both found this sweet and lacking in depth of flavor. My lasagna was cooked well but drowned by sweet marinara. Caesar salad was somehow sweet too and overdressed. Waitress did... More

If you're in the Cookeville area, try Mauricio's. Love the atmosphere. Service and food were great, but really, it's hard to beat the one of a kind feel of a place like this. Beats chain restaurants just for the atmosphere. Service was very attentive, and the food was great. If you're travelling or staying in Cookeville, definitely worth checking out.

We were in Crossville visiting my parents for their 33rd wedding anniversary over the 4th of July weekend. Drove the hour to Cookeville to dine at Mauricio's to celebrate. The place is an old home that has been converted into a restaurant which adds a nice charm to the ambiance. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Having been before,... More

We had a very nice and relaxing dinner. The food was very tasty. A good mix of Italian favs including ravioli, lasagna , with some fish choices as well. We sat in a secluded corner of a room in this old Victorian era house. The waiter was sweet and even took our picture out front for us. After 42 years... More

We came to Cookeville the night before picking up our son from a program at nearby TTU. My husband read a few reviews and suggested we check out Mauricio's. It was a fantastic choice.
