There’s really only one thing you absolutely need to know about this Fortitude Valley restaurant and wine bar: they dish up the best duck ragu you’ll ever eat. Period. If it takes more than that to get you in the door, however, there’s plenty more reasons to drop by and nab a table at Mosconi.
Bringing sleek Euro vibes to the quiet side street just off James, the small venue makes the most of its space with a mezzanine level tucked under the domed ceiling, and stools at the bar if you’re just stopping in for an Aperol spritz.
After something a bit more substantial? Upgrade to a full Italian feast and loosen the belts for Moreton Bay bug ravioli, Brisbane Valley quail with beetroot carpaccio and gorgonzola, and fig, burnt meringue lemon curd for dessert. Or you could just work your way through the extensive wine list.
