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.

Quirky little restaurant. Seems to have created a good team with plenty of Buzz and frenzy in the place. Food was great. Loved everything we had. Main course was a little slow. Took 25 minutes to arrive. Worth the visit!

Always love visiting Mosconi but the new menu is definitely best yet! Kingfish, duck papardelle and finish it off with that amazing chocolate dessert! So so good!

Great food and vibe and we are returning customers! Only critique is that we were reminded numerous times by service staff that our booking finished at a certain time, and we were aware of this from the time of being seated. We were finished with the table before the designated booking spot ended, so the reminders were not required :)

We can't fault the restaurant itself but we have been disappointed twice with the booking system. Both times I have booked on line and opted for an inside table. This last time we arrived spot on time and were seated outside. When we asked to move inside we were told the only seat available was at the bar because "we are a small restaurant and we are very busy".
So why give us the options when booking of line?
Next time I book, I will phone ahead because clearly on line requests are ignored.

Loved our dining experience and we were fed and watered well. Marc suggested a special Pinot Noir which slid very easily down our throats. Probably would have preferred a in house unique cocktail than the glass of bubbles - just didn't love it that much.
Next time though..

It was wonderful. Such a lovely evening and our waiter (guy in late 20s with Italian accent and beard) was fantastic - he was funny, warm and helpful! Will definitely be back soon! Food was delicious.

Absolutely wonderful lunch in the glorious Brisbane sunshine. The gnocchi looked so good all four of us had it and we were proved correct. Delicious! Knowledgeable, friendly helpful staff. The only problem was the choices, everything tastes so good here. Thank you Mosconi, I can't wait to be back again soon!

Excellent food, well prepared, well presented. Top Chef! Good prompt attentive service, didn't forget any request. Don't like the bent cane chairs. Too uncomfortable. Outside in great weather, upstairs when not. Good range of wine to select from.

Was very excited to go.. But I think they were having a bad day - we were on the back end of what had been a busy lunch period and they didn't have time to catch up (the owner did apologise profusely and was incredibly generous to us). But overall service was pretty average, value for money on the wine.. I just dont think it's there personally. The food when it came - 2 dishes were pretty cold, so sent back one (which I never do so embarrassing!) and you could tell that they just microwaved it as it came back with that stale sort of look. Honestly though I just think it was a bad night and our bad luck, the other dishes were very lovely. Staff other than the owner/manager definitely need a bit of a push to be more lively and on the ball, but the owner was an absolutely gem. I would definitely give them a try if you haven't already, as I said I think we just went on a bad day! x

The menu and presentation is great. The ambience is cozy. It is great to be able to book a late lunch and not be confined to the 12pm-1.30pm time frame. I really relaxing experience.
