A word from Quality Italian
Quality Italian is a modern interpretation of the Italian-American Steakhouse. Overseen by executive chef Scott Tacinelli, the kitchen updates classic steakhouse fare creating modern interpretations with Italian accents. The 200-seat restaurant, owned and operated by Fourth Wall Restaurants, was designed by AvroKO and references the Butcher's Guilds of Italy, responsible for the finest cuts of meat in Italy.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Please DO NOT order the LOBSTER DIAVOLO, I'm still traumitized over how disgusting this dinner was. I have no clue why I did'nt return it and order something else? Maybe I was tipsy and could'nt think straight. My friend ordered the steak, she did'nt like it either. The bread I must say is fabulous, and all around very nice staff including: the hostess, waiters, food runners, and managers were very friendly. I like Quality steak (even though it smells like meat locker). I'm not sure if I will ever eat here again, maybe if someone else is paying, I would def try the pasta next time."

  • "Thank you so much for taking care of my people. You always go above and beyond. It is sincerely appreciated. They are still raving about the scallops and the corn creme brulee! Mission accomplished!!!! I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a business lunch, special occasion, or romantic dinner!"

  • "It was my debut at this restaurant and overall it was a positive experience. The waiter seemed a bit eager to take our order but better that than have to wonder who is looking after us. We ordered the veal shank for two and it was truly the largest shank I have ever seen. Because it was being shared, the waiter removed it from the bone table side and spread the meat across a plate. I think something is lost in the experience by having it taken off the bone. The meat was moist and tender and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Another person at the table ordered the branzino which we were less joyful over. The portion was small and not the tastiest of branzinos we have eaten. The waiter was nice and attentive but lacking in personality."

  • "My lamb was fantastic! Done to perfection! Loved the creamed kale as well. My husband & I celebrated our 20th anniversary together. The restaurant sent us a complimentary bottle of prosecco & sorbet with a written chocolate message! Extra special touches to enhance the evening! Will definately return & reccomend!"

  • "Much more touristy than I expected. It might have been due to the day (Saturday) and time (7:00 pm) that we chose to go there, but I felt like this restaurant in many ways (service, menu, atmosphere) is geared to people visiting New York more than people who live in New York."

  • "My daughter wanted to try this restaurant. So while I was visiting her we made a reservation for an early dinner. It appeared that for the few days I was there that the only availability was early or very late. The reason why is that the food is so good. We shared a steak which was delicious. We also shared a chopped salad and the corn gnudi. The corn gnudi is gluten free and was the best thing on the menu. Our waiter helped us with our order and he was outstanding. I wasn't gluten free I would have ordered the chicken parnigiana which looked amazing! This is definitely a must when you come to New York."

  • "We did a family visit to Quality Italian. It was our first visit to the Quality Meats new venture. I had the octopus app. and the Dover Sole special. It was the whole fish, done with a hazelnut brown butter fileted tableside. My wife had the caesar salad & pasta with lamb ragu. Salad was crisp & nicely dressed & her pasta was perfectly al dente with the just the right amount of sauce. My kids had plenty of choices that they liked. The wine list is very deep, with most of the selections fairly priced. If you like older vintages they have them, but as expected, you have to pay. We sampled several desserts which were also excellent & the service was spot on. Next trip to NYC we will definitely be visiting Quality Italian. Highly recommended!"

  • "I didn't think it could get any better... but it always does! There are so many ways that Quality Italian just nails it every time. The service and staff are lovely... the food is decadent... and the ambiance is delightful. The place is always abuzz whether it's a Monday or a Saturday night. If you're looking for a great night out in a beautiful surrounding, you can stop your searching, bc you've found just the place! Recommended dishes: grilled octopus, porterhouse agnolotti, new fusilli pasta, chicken parm for 2, and lobster fra diavolo. Bring your appetite and enjoy the food excursion!"

  • "My girlfriend took me to QI to celebrate my birthday and we had a gastronomic dinner! We had the aged porterhouse agnolotti to start and it was purely delicious with it's savory juice and the oysters ricci with uni butter is divine! We had the chicken parm and each slice was a satisfying meal and so decadent! Love, love eating at QI!"

  • "My new favorite steak place in Manhattan!! Gorgonzola on a filet? Don't even think about it, just order it. Absolutely outstanding all around. Service was great, exceptionally attentive, and not pretentious. Recommendations were spot on for wine and dessert. When we had the wine list open, everyone who walked by stopped to ask if we needed help. When the food came, at least three different people came by to make sure everything was satisfactory. Not cheap but worth it!"

  • "We had a party of four, we're all in hospitality (I'm a GM, brought my Chef and our dates) and we loved every facet of our experience there. We had to wait about 20min past our reservation time, but that was the only hitch. The menu has a good balance of classics and some inventive dishes. The wines were reasonably priced and the labels we tried were excellent. The service was probably some of the best I've received in recent memory."

  • "I had been to Quality Meats (sister restaraunt) which is great. I thought this would actually be italian cuisine, which it isn't. However, dinner was great...but its an italian steak house. Who know? I wonder if I was the only clueless first time customer to QI who thought that."

  • "Three (out of 4) of us had romaine salad with seared tuna. There was much too much dressing on the salad, and tasted like wishbone dressing from the refrigerator. the tuna was stringy on some plates. Ambiance was good and looks like a good place to go after work for drinks and hang."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Juicy steaks, savory roast chicken, a "vastly under-appreciated pork chop" (in the words of our server) comprise the gustatory delights at Quality Italian. The younger sibling of Quality Meats, QI offers thoughtful and professional service with plenty of personality, a varied wine list and hearty servings for foodies and visiting firemen alike. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Best meal from start to finish. Fabulous service. The chicken parm pizza is amazing, as well as, the bread and corn brûlée ! I would highly recommend Quality Italian. It is indeed quality."

  • "I keep coming back to QI for the food and the attentive service. Their signature Chicken Parmagiana is a great share dish. The presentation is awesome. Sauces are what sometimes makes a dish go from being good to great and many of the QI dishes have amazing sauce... like the baked clams and the agnolotti. I used my fresh baked bread to slop up all the sauce from the dish. Mom taught me to always clean my plate haha."

  • "This was our 2nd time at the restaurant. Our first experience was fantastic. Fantastic meal, great wine and fabulous service. Unfortunately our second visit missed the mark. While the food was good, the service was off the mark. Support staff got it done, but our main server was a mess. We were waiting for the fourth guest to arrive and he asked us what we would like to drink, then disappeared. It took about 20 minutes to get his attention as he was staring off into space and appeared to be avoiding eye contact with our table. When all four of us were seated I was finally able to wave him down. He answered our questions in a harsh manner like we were bothering him. Its important to note that as the night went on he got mildly better."

  • "Love the restaurant! Food, atmosphere, people, chefs all excellent. EXCEPT our most recent waiter Matt H. He seemed he could care less about serving us. I asked him about specials although I saw him freely offering specials and suggestions to others. He assumed my 21 year old daughter was under age as he immediately swept the wine glass from her setting as we arrived. Examined her license like he was a police detective -very distrusting. NO personality unless he was looking for an acting job with that qualification. Too bad. Will always frequent QI but will stay clear of Matt H."

  • "Waited too long for seared scallops that weren't ideally prepared, my guests were happy with their pasta and veal, though."

  • "My wife and I were out for a romantic evening. We were shoe horned in between loud talking guests, so close together you could not help but be distracted. Maybe this is normal in NYC but was definitely an unpleasant surprise to us."

  • "Four of us went on Sunday evening at 8.30 pm. The wait to take our order was a little long but did not in any way impact our experience. The food was awesome, the whole table went for different steaks. While our waiter was good we had a guy who was bussing the table called brad who was a delight. All in all there was not one complaint from anyone at the table."

  • "Loved the restaurant, including the atmosphere, drinks and food. Service could use some work, especially our waiter, Matt. He was truly dreadful. Never have I experienced a more condescending, rude or obnoxious waiter."

  • "Went on a busy Saturday night. Service subpar to say the least. Overflowing with tourists. Go or the chicken parm for 2...which would serve 4 and is really good...don't expect the Quality experience you get at Quality Meats which is a much better place in my opinion. Maybe a weeknight or business lunch is a better experience."

  • "Service and food perfect. Wine was great too our server was very knowledgable with pairing wine with our meals!! Def will return!!! Save room for the Nutella gelato it was delicious and great too see different creations on whole menu opposed to same ol italian cuisine."

  • "Have eaten here before with good food and enjoyable. Ordered our food in a regular manner. This time it was excessively spiced up which became more apparent by the end of the meal. My date and I suffered from "heartburn" following the meal. Can no longer recommend this place to others in the future. Food inconsistent."

  • "We had a nice dinner with our two daughters (10 and 14yrs) on Saturday night. Started out sharing the ceaser and chopped NY salad, which were both very tasty and different. The chef sliced the petit filet perfectly for the girls. The bone-in ribeye was perfect as was the Dover sole. Great wine list which we started into with a class of the QI prosecco that was reasonably priced and refreshing. Service was good despite the busy crowd. Would go back but I liked the ambience of Quality Meats better since QI is loud."

  • "Quality Italian had a noise level that reminded me of being in a stadium. The majority of diners were businessmen in the 25-40 age category. It is not a place to go as a couple or with friends when you may want to have conversations. The service was good as was the food, buy still not worth having to be in a deafening restaurant. They were packed so the noise level must not bother everyone."
