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
  • "My wife wanted to come here for her birthday. We had a terrific time."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Quality Italian is a great surprise. Their small plates are innovative and delicious as are their large plates of veal shank and Branzino. You can get Amarone by the glass and, to top it off, request JD Macon as your server because there's no-one like him. He will make sure your food choice is perfect and he is gracious and attentive and fun. To me, he is the face of this new eatery and accentuates it's vitality, and quality and reminds you how dynamic great dining can be. Pass this one up at your peril. The ambiance of the place is very spacious and artistic in a rustic kind of way. It feels right and it tastes right. And the value is all over the menu. How lucky can you get?"

  • "Restaurant had a great atmosphere. Service was good. However, server continued to try & upsale wine and more expensive menu items without answering genuine questions about the entrees, etc from members in our party. Frustrating."

  • "Service here was brilliant, friendly and helpful yet not obtrusive. We were served by Frank and Peter. The atmosphere was bustling. We had the tomahawk and the veal chop, both were cooked to perfection and we could not fault either dish. We will definitely be back."

  • "My sister and I went to NYC for 4 days and went to QI twice! We are both foodies and love to try new places but this was so awesome we had to go back!! Oysters ricci was to die for! They got this rest 100% on target from bread to service!!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Every part of the meal was delicious! The bread was tasty, the kale tricolore salad was a nice start, the portherhouse agnolotti was delectable, and the lobster was in a phenomenal sauce. Oh, and leave room for dessert!"

  • "Enjoyed, but wish the selection of food was larger for brunch. Nice cocktail menu."

  • "Love quality meat and this is just as good! Atmosphere awesome and great with kids! Even let them help make the cannolis!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I had a great experience at Quality Italian both at the bar and with regard to the food and drink. Our waiter was somewhat dismissive and cold, and I did not like that you cannot order appetizers to start and then your dinner (all has to be placed together) but overall a positive experience."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Was looking forward to Quality Italian after hearing good things. Staff was very nice and service was great, it is too bad that the food didn't live up to everything else. We spent $700 (one round of drinks, two bottles of wine, dinner and tip) for 4 people and food was just OK, definitely not worth a return tirp."

  • "Our Party arrive shortly before me and by 7:15pm we were ready to order, server approaches the table and took a drink order and shortly after came back and said we do have Apple martini and we picked something else.Shortly after he dropped the drinks took the appetizers and dinner order,that was the last time the server paid any mind to us; totally neglected us for the rest of the evening no refill on the drinks were offered, dinner plates cleaned 40 minutes after we were finished. Another server or server assistant stepped in and cleared our table and offered us dessert. He did a really good job. We asked for our check and our original server dropped it off. The food was ok but the service wasn't good."

  • "I normally eat here with clients during the week for lunch but was finally able to let loose and stay awhile on a recent rainy Saturday. Kendra made great cocktails at the street-level "welcome bar" and Roger, the GM, warmly greeted us off the elevator after hoisting up leftover drinks. Abdi finished off the experience with super service at the bar on the way out. Great space, great steak, great wine, and a great time!"

  • "This was my second time at Quality Italian...it was such a great experience the first time that my husband and I had to go back with friends! Must try list: chicken parm (which looks like a pizza, but it's actually breaded chicken with melted cheese on top); clams; octopus salad appetizer; veal milanese On top of the food being delicious, the service is truly excellent - very attentive staff. This is definitely not a quiet place - there's some music playing in the background, but it hardly drowns out the din of people chatting. All in all a great restaurant that I highly recommend!"

  • "Quality is a factory, may be good for partying groups, but......... Food was very good, but nothing that isn't done equally as well in so many other places. Loud, NOISY room on a Saturday night. 3 hours for our meal, servings were paced with long intervals of waiting. Our "waiter" disappeared for long periods of time, apologizing at the end out our service (tip rescue effort?). I suppose a good spot in mid-town for event groups, but would not recommend for couples or 4's. Footnote: wine markups 3 - 4 X retail (at least double reasonably acceptable for restaurant). Damages: $475 w/tip out the door for 3 people, be prepared."

  • "It is a beautiful restaurant with two floors with amazing food. Make sure you make reservations and the night will be unforgettable."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The chicken parmigiana that they are famous for seemed like a giant processed chicken nugget. Chopped salad was boring and oily. Not worth the money or time"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The noise level is overwhelming which of course forces everyone to speak louder without realizing it. I had to ask the people at the next table to lower their voices - twice - because they could not hear me the first time. Food was good but not great. Decor is industrial grunge meets tuscany - very weird"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Took clients to lunch and we had a great meal. There was something for everyone on the menu and the food was really good! Our service was excellent and our servers were attentive but not overbearing. Overall it was a great experience!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Great Italian meets steakhouse cuisine. The two blend in seamlessly together with dishes such as the porterhouse steak agnolotti. Amazing corn creme brulee. Overall, an outstanding dining experience."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We went for my wife's birthday. We are big fans of quality meats so we decided to check out quality Italian finally. We enjoyed it and will certainly be back."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "My second visit was even better than the first. We enjoyed the entire experience. The waiter was fantastic. I would visit this place every time Im in NYC."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Three of us went to Sunday lunch. The service was horrible, the selection was disappointing. When serving a dish that did not look like what one of us had ordered, the server said "I do not cook the food, I only bring it out". When our server poured our wine, the pour was very small. One of us commented and his response was "these are big glasses". Needless to say, I will not return."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Lovely experience. Food was prepared and presented with precision and grace. We loved the total experience."

  • "Have had many great client lunches and Friday's was better than the last! Food, service, interiors are all above par. Coming back soon!!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I could have ordered anything on the menu, every dish looked better then the next. What we did order was all amazing and I have to go back with a bigger party so I can try a bunch of different plates. The chicken parm pizza was insane and worth every penny. Also the zeppoles for dessert were worth over stuffing my face. I definitely left full but completely satisfied and I can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Not only is the food and service excellent, but the layout of the restaurant is very cool!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Outstanding dinner in all respects. While a good choice for entertaining clients, take care of the business discussions at the office as the noise level is too intense."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Came here for dinner on a Sunday night. Heard about the pizza shaped chicken parm, and it lived up to the hype. However, the service from our waiter was horrendous. She was good in the beginning when she took our order, but once she took the order, she did not come back until it was time to order dessert. We didn't notice that we had not gotten the complimentary garlic bread until the table next to us got it from a different waiter. The chicken parm was huge and delicious - we couldn't finish the whole thing. We also ordered 2 sides (spinach and pasta) and the Fererro Rocher gelato. I would recommend the place for the food and hopefully the service would be better!!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "we had a great meal, everything we ordered was delicious. in reality, chicken parm definitely LOOKS cooler than it is, however it was delicious, and i would recommend getting it, not only for the experience - it's fun! - but it was delicious, and ranks high compared to others I have had. maybe just could have used a little more sauce? the steak w/ bone marrow was a standout!!! the artichoke mac and cheese lacked artichoke, but was still great mac & cheese. lamb pasta special was awesome, albeit small, considering server's embellishing description. canoli cart was fun, but more of a gimmick. there are better dessert options - see gelato menu. overall a great meal, and i would go back, and order some of same and some new items."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "There is a good bar crowd and the food is delicious. Service is excellent. The waiter was kind enough to give us a complimentary side dish as my lamb chops were not cooked well done as ordered. I thought that was a great customer service."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Few things you need to know about Quality Italian: -TOMAHAWK STEAK AND CHICKEN PARM PIZZA is out of this world - MAKE SURE YOU GET THE SAUSAGE AND PEPPER APPETIZER - impeccable service - great menu - great wine list - great cocktails - HUGE restaurant in the middle of NYC. Perfectly situated in midtown to go to before a show - Must reserve a week or two in advance - my mouth is watering as I type this"

  • "Wonderful addition to our neighborhood..... I prefer it to Quality Meat"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "We started with their version of Moscow Mules. Tasty but definitely low on the alcohol content. For $15 I would expect a bit more. We loved the bone-in sirloin and it was cooked perfectly. The homemade ricotta was sweet and lovely. We had a couple of mid-range wines at $75/bottle and they were fantastic! The service was very nice and the sommelier complimented my choice in wine. I guess that's his job, but a little validation never hurts! Overall, I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. 4 cocktails, 2 bottles of wine, 1 app, 4 salads, and 4 entrees came out to $750 when we included gratuity."
