What a hidden gem. Well worth the trip off of I-40 if you're passing by Cookeville. Calamaris was perfect, salad was chilled and very tasty. Bread was yummy and my Seafood Mauricio was fantastic! Can't wait to drive by again so we can stop.

We have had nothing but excellent food and good service at Mauricio's. The price of the food is a little on the high side but well worth it!

Description
The restaurant, formerly a residence, was built in 1910. It features hardwood floors, 12' ft ceilings, and 5 fine dining rooms, three with fireplaces. We have a full selection of spirits and over 20 selections of wine. We also have a patio that seats 25 guests. We host weddings, rehearsal dinners, showers and parties. When you dine with us, we want you to have a dining experience rather than the typical restaurant that tries to turn tables as quickly as possible. We serve each course separately allowing you to relax, take in the ambiance, enjoy a glass of wine and savor every bite of Italian cuisine. When you leave our restaurant, we want you to remember what it's like to slow down, enjoy one another's company and realize how nice and relaxing dining can be. If you have other plans after dining with us, inform your server upon arrival and we can speed up your service. Dress is casual and reservations are recommended during the week and especially on the weekends.
