Spaghetti and Mozzarella di Bufala Chitarra, Erbette Aromatiche

For a year, every time my husband and I walked past Luxembourg City’s two-star Michelin restaurant, Mosconi, we drooled over the menu and commented to each other, “we really need to go here!”

Lovely Setting on the Alzette River

Well, we finally did. And guess what? It was impeccable.

Pacherri Stuffed with Vegetables and Calamaretti Guazetto di Vongole Veraci

We ordered the eight-course pasta tasting menu, which included simple, flavorful dishes such as ravioli with ricotta, pecorino and Parmesan, linguine di Gragnano with tartare marinated sardines and mantecato risotto with foie gras. The pasta was cooked perfectly. Each pasta course was only a couple of bites, but with the array of amuse bouches and rich desserts, we were more than stuffed by the end of the meal.

The master in the kitchen is owner and chef, Ilario Mosconi. Chef Mosconi is from Lombardy, which explains how he’s able to cooks such authentic fare. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that 90% of the ingredients come directly from Italy.

Ravioli with Ricotta, Pecorino and Parmesan

Simonetta Mosconi, the chef’s wife, cares for the dining room and the guests. She floated from table to table, welcoming all the diners and visiting with the regulars.

The restaurant’s intimate setting in a house on the Alzette River makes the experience quite special.
