“5 th visit, and I am quite disappointed...”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is my 5th visit to Mosconi and I am sorry to say that I have to confirm the latest contributions: The service is NOT up to level for this type of establishment. While this used to be a bit informal, more family type, it moved down to... unattending

Waiters have been unattentive from beginning to end of the service, not even trying to be nice. That goes from valet service, through menu where not a word of avise was given when asked, through errors in drinks, through a bad wine where the waiter argues it is good (it did not taste it to my knowledge :-))... It got replaced when I insisted, so nothing really bad altogether, but not the kind of issues you expect in this type of restaurant for that type of price.

As for the food, some dishes remained exceptional, but others were quite average, even low average. My "génisse" was far from being exceptionnal.

So a disappointment, wand while it remains a key restaurant in Luxxembourg, and one of the only gastronomical Italian around, I would not recommend it as one of my favorites as I used too... A pity...Though the place was full, there is too much money in Luxembourg and customers are easily satisfied.

“Great place for special occassions”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Once a year I have dinner at this place. Great location with drinks and amuse at the terrace, if weather permits.

The service is great, although the staff has difficulties when you do no master the French language and regular guests seem to be treated more special. The food is great, whatever you choose from the menu. The winelist, impressive, with something nice for each expert,

For sure not the cheapest place around, but worth the occasion. The high price is compensated a bit by the "free" course, the generous liquors and the relatively low priced good wines.

“Good to try if someone very generous pays..”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Its a beautiful place with great service.
Wines are fantastic.
Food is....well....we had nice but tiny starters. Afterwards i had fried squids. To my very big surprize i got a plate of very nicely deep fried squids and small fish if i remember correctly and that was it...it was so much oily that it was really hard to enjoy it without any vegetable or salad...maybe i had to order....but where we are, at michelin resto, not the seaside taverna...
(In the mediterranean countries u get a plate of those for 5 euros and normally you match it with plenty of other snacks)
Perhaps there are better mezls to order. But this was my experience. Thank god it was paid by work..

“Italian cucina at its best”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

It is like entering some rich friend s home once you get the chance to find a table at Mosconi. With a warm welcome, you are invited to have a drink in a comfortable and cosy lounge. When you are ready, you are escorted to your table. Be ready to be surprised, pleased, moved to tears by the Chef s Art. Excellent products, beautiful presentation, supreme wines. Yes, at this level, eating is "uno spettacolo"!! The only cons, if one has to find one, is the proximity of the tables. A little more space and intimacy would make this place perfect - and worth all the hundreds euros you ll be leaving behind !

“It's not just about the menu....”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Of course we all hope for excellent food.....and Mosconi doesn't disappoint! But it doesn't stop there....this is a restaurant that delivers on every front. Fantastic decor and atmosphere......attentive service, yet not overbearing......and of course that wonderful Italian food, combined with an extensive wine selection. I had the pleasure of visiting Mosconi with one of our company's best customers and his wife.....both familiar figures in Luxembourg.....and it seemed like every other diner that evening knew them! This has to be one of the very best Italian restaurants!.....as they say, if its good enough for the locals, then it had to be good enough for me!
