Mosconi Restaurant & Wine Bar
We enjoyed another wonderfully memorable dining experience again at Mosconi! The food is always exceptional!
My second lunch at Mosconi and I'm very impressed. The octopus was beautifully prepared and I haven't experienced such a dish since living in Athens some years ago and the Ragu was equally impressive. Congratulations are due for the resident Sommellier who has presented a superb and extensive wine list.
Excellent food, wine and ambience for our anniversary lunch.
The food and wine were excellent, service friendly, thoughtful and considerate. They kindly allowed us to arrive and leave late. It felt like we were in Italy. Just loved it.
Great atmosphere. Comprehensive wine list. Food was excellent. Will definitely return
One the best Italian diners in the city. A busy atmosphere, with guests coming and going constantly, and yet the staff never seem rushed. They always have time for the guests. The kitchen is on song, rarely missing a chance to impress. Great wine list. A perfect choice for a long lunch or quick dinner.
Consistently great food!
Brilliant restaurant. Lovely food and wine. And staff were fantastic.
Tasty food in tasteful surroundings
It was a great experience - the food, wine and champagne was outstanding. As a group of six, we would have preferred a more intimate space rather than being the first table at the front door, but then again I understand that space is minimal. Notwithstanding this, it was still a lovely experience. Thank you very much for a wonderful evening.
A great local restaurant, amazing
One of the best European restaurants in Brisbane, small and stylish. Mark and the staff were excellent and certainly know their food and wine.
lovely and accomodating staff and atmosphere. Steak and fish overcooked unfortunately :( For the price point I didn't expect that. Will probably try again in the future as the atmosphere was nice.
Mosconi was outstanding ... excellent food, awesome atmosphere and superb service. HIGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT.
Our first visit to this gem of a restaurant. Service was excellent but the food was outstanding. Unpretentious, flavour packed and interesting. All round one of the best restaurants in Brisbane
Outstanding food, service and a very beautiful cost restaurant. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough. The best meal I’ve had for a very long time!
A great restaurant . Will recommend to other friends . I will be back there again soon .
Fathers Day lunch. Group of 3. First time at the restaurant. Small and intimate venue. Had a Melbourne restaurant vibe. Food was fantastic - high quality and beautifully presented. So good we had to try something from all 3 courses. Great wine selection as well. Highly recommend. Look forward to returning again soon.
Our food was exceptional! From the moment we walked in the place was buzzing but not overly noisy. We loved the cosy intimate ambiance of the restaurant and truly enjoyed both our meal and dining experience. Can’t wait to come back!
Amazing food, great service and an incredible wine list. Perfect for a catch up with friends.
An all round excellent experience for our dinner party of 4. Will definitely be back.
This is our first time here for a weekend lunch. A great new find and one which will become a regular of ours. Food was first class.
Nice 3 course dinner. Fig and meringue dessert the stand out. will be back
Our side dish of broccolini was forgotten so never made it to the table - that was a bit disappointing. Otherwise, all else was excellent.
Super impressed. Great place. Fantastic food. Thanks so much.
Food delicious. Staff attentive and helpful. Gluten free options were available and we were well looked after in this regard. nothing was nay trouble. Great selection of wine. Dishes were beautifully presented and tasted divine. Everything was perfect. We will definitely be returning and will highly recommend Mosconi to friends. Thanks for a very pleasant evening!
It is a pleasant environment for lunch. Whilst the food is presented well and tasty, the main course portion size is really only entree size. Hence it does not offer value for money. The staff are pleasant and the service attentive.
One of the best meals and service I have had in a long time. Our waitress was wonderful, gave some great recommendations for our food choices and wine paring. She seemed genuinely passionate about the food and ensuring we had the best experience. Thank you!
Mosconi has ambience and a relaxed but professional well run operation. We found the service relaxed but excellent and the food did not disappoint. Everything was effortless - a sign of a well run restaurant. Selection of wine was great. Looking forward to trying the rest of the menu.
Quality of food comparable to other Italian restaurants however, costs too high for both food and wine. Service very good.
The menu was what attracted me to this restaurant, and it did prove difficult choosing between some amazing-sounding dishes using the best of seasonal produce. However while there was nothing wrong with the meals, the balance between flavours just seemed to be a bit off. For instance a dish of Moreton bay bug ravioli with shellfish oil was very strong in flavour, and I felt it was too strong for the delicate ravioli. Similarly with a dish of goat curd gnocchi, the sauce (or brodo) with asparagus, artichoke and I think peas, were lost in the strong flavours of the goats curd. Portion size is generous, so a starter of risotto-stuffed zucchini flowers left me unable to eat much of a main of duck pasta, which was lacking in flavour (needed seasoning?).
Wines by the glass were great, if on the pricier side, and service also very good.
The waitress did mention that as there was only a small kitchen on-site, the main prep was done in their other restaurant, Vine, so is it perhaps that on-site seasoning and finishing needs a bit more finesse?
Hi Lorraine, we are really sorry that there was a level of confusion regarding the offsite kitchen. Both restaurants are separate entities, the only thing Vine supplies Mosconi with is daily made pasta as they have a commercial pasta machine. I want to be very clear that everything else is made on premise and fresh to order. Thank you for your opinion regarding the balance of flavours on our dishes. We will definitely take this on board going forward. We really appreciate your feedback.
Good food, service and atmosphere. A nice alternative to Beccofino
Amazing little Italian restaurant. Would 100% recommend.
This is a place to enjoy divine food, beautiful wine and wonderful service. The zucchini flowers, Moreton bay bug ravioli and deconstructed lemon meringue pie were to die for and our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was casual but intimate - great for a date, anniversary or catch up with friends. Thoroughly recommend.
Food and wine list are exceptional, highly recommend.
This is a first class dining experience in every aspect. Casual, relaxed but truly excellent.
Very delightful restaurant food wine and service was excellent.
Awesome Italian ! An absolute must do food destination.
Far too noisy. Food was brilliant but the noise was unbearable. We asked to be moved downstairs which was a bit better.
Great in all aspects. Food service and value for money !
