“Incredible experience every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Mauricio's Italian restaurant in Cookeville is quite possibly one of the better white tablecloth places in Tennessee.

On a recent visit, my wife and I had yet another great meal. The service is very attentive and the owners regularly check on guests and assist the wait staff. The other thing that stands out is that the wait staff and owners always appear impeccably dressed. It is the little things that separate the good from the excellent restaurants.

I had the Pesto Chicken with Bowtie pasta..it is my favorite dish and I haven't been able to replicate it at home.

We really enjoy Mauricio's.

“Great, Unique Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

This restaurant serves wonderful food at good prices with excellent service in a beautiful old home. The small, seperated rooms provide a quiet atmosphere with a sense of privacy. They do the big and small things well and offer a great dining experience from start to finish.

This is a great restaurant. It is in an old house , but looks pretty and cozy with friends. The service and food are very good. I have never had a bad experience and have eaten there many times.

“Best Place to Eat in Cookeville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a wonderful fine dining experience. There is a great ambiance to this place with the music and wonderful food...one feels at home yet indulged at the same time. Waitresses have always seemed quite nice and helpful over the years I have been going there. For me, that has always been a good place to go for a date, an anniversary, graduation, etc. Lunch prices are good...and I love their salad! Treat yourself or a loved one if you live in the area or are visiting through and are close to TTU. It is a very short drive from the university and worth it!

“Great Atmosphere and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

My wife and I go here for special occasions and it is the best dining experience in Cookeville. I am not a big italian fan but everything from the salad, bread to entree is perfect. The owners make you feel at home here.
