A great Italian restaurant, perfect for a romantic date night in Cookeville. The service was amazing. Also, on your anniversary they offer a free slice of cheesecake! Large portions of the best pasta!

We were delighted - and surprised - to find such a lovely restaurant in Cookeville as we were traveling through. Mauricio's is a first class special occasion restaurant with charming decor and excellent service. I was having a very sad evening, having lost my wedding ring back in Nashville. So it took a lot for me to get an appetite.... More

On our way from Gatlinburg to Nashville decided we were up for some Italian food instead of the American cuisine so far. The food was lovely: both mains (special: braised short rib & mushrooms pasta dish, chicken Parmesan) as well as the fresh salad and garlic bread. Service was also very friendly. If there was one thing I had to... More

My wife and I ate here recently on a trip through Tennessee. I had cheese ravioli with marinara, and it was delicious. Best marinara I have tasted in a long time.

Mauricio's offers a quaint yet elegant atmosphere. The restaurant is an older house converted into a dining gem. For a southern Italian restaurant the food is delicious and there is plenty of it. The staff is friendly and they do take reservations.
