European
Mosconi is a European focused Restaurant and Wine Bar, located just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of James St.
Named after a fine Northern Italian wine - Barolo Mosconi, the refined flavour and long heritage of its namesake Cru is reflected in both the food and the interior of our restaurant.
We serve modern European bistro fare in a cosy, welcoming setting. Head Chef Catherine Anders is no stranger to modern Italian fare with an impressive history including most notably the former Executive Chef of feted Il Centro. She has devised a small but robust menu that embraces the solo diners wanting a 'quick bite', but also people earning for a new consummate dining experience.

Very pleased with food and wine but the service was chaotic and sitting next to kitchen and toilet was a bummer. Dishes yanked before finished main course. Got distinct impression they’d rather we left. And it was my wife's birthday dinner to boot, which I believe I mentioned in the Open Table booking. Recommendation would be 50/50

This was our first time at Mosconi. We found the food quality and taste to be outstanding. The service was great and the wine list is extensive. The prices are almost on par with CBD prices but overall, we had an enjoyable afternoon and will definitely be back.

Wow!!! Great food. Great service. Great ambience. And great value for money. I loved the special I had, Moreton Bay Bug Gnocci. The wait staff really know their wine so I enjoyed a stunning Rose. This is now on my regular go to lunch restaurants.

High quality food - never dropped down in quality/standard over the five years I have eaten there, not only previously as the Vine in New Farm before they sold up there but also when they reinstated themselves as Mosconi In the Valley

Mark Rotolone runs a tight ship and it is always a pleasure to be looked after by his staff!

Noise level was perfect as we choose to sit outside, as previously internal noise level, particularly upstairs, was difficult to overcome, spoiling a great evening.
The restaurant was full on a Wednesday night, which was great for them, and they coped OK, however it did take almost a full hour to be served main meal, following entree.

The food was delicious! I don't think I have had a crab ravioli so filled with crab meat. Each dish was very well balanced. I had the veal cotelleta and it was divine. Perfectly cooked with a silky-smooth celeriac puree. I cannot rate this restaurant any higher!

Food was on point taste wise, although ravioli was served warm. Service was slow, a very long wait between courses. Asked for outdoor seating on the booking site and got seated at a tiny outdoor table, which was totally understandable if the other outdoor tables where booked, but while sitting there heard a larger square table given to a walk in because it was free. The waiter we had to wave over to take out order was knowledgeable in the items on the menu and made a good recommendation on ordering bread with the entree for the sauce.
Overall, nice food but for the price and the service i’d need a waterfront view to make up for it. Picking leaves out of your food from the trees above etc doesn’t really equate to the price point.

Fabulous as usual!
The food once again exceeded our expectations.
When we arrived the restaurant and surrounding area had lost power. It was very busy but the staff did a wonderful job of handling the situation. The power came back on and we were promptly seated. Our meals were all delicious and look spectacular.
Overall Superb!
