    Quality Foods Market is an homage to every limited seating, chef driven restaurant in Europe, with four tables inside and a few more on an outside patio. The small inside space is charming, and manages to be upscale, casual, and quirky all at the same time. The food and service are on another level. Chef Chris interacts with each table like they are guests in his home, and his food preparation takes my wife and I back to our times spent in Italy. Each dish we've had has been nothing short of amazing. The ribeye is the best steak in the US, and I've eaten at just about every high-end steakhouse in America. Chef Chris offers fine dining quality service and food, while exhibiting all the charm and hospitality of a mom and pop kind of place. No other restaurant experience compares.

    I’ll begin by saying the usual metrics don’t apply when describing the decor at QFM. But it only adds positivity to the dining experience. The owner Chris is an excellent Chef as well as raconteur. The path to his restaurant’s kitchen was far from conventional. Ask about it. The Italian Cuisine was excellent created from the finest, freshest ingredients Chris could locate and he looked far and wide .The menu was inspired by 2 years of travel and cooking in kitchens throughout Italy.The sides,pastas,sauces, bread,desserts and meats were excellent. The wine and beer offerings close to limitless. Take a chance on dining in a creative Chef’s Culinary Vision. You won’t be disappointed.

    My wife and I have been here multiple times for the fine dining experience, but wanted to try their al fresco patio menu that's not available inside. Since it was outside and a bit chilly I brought a jacket, but didn't need it because there was plenty of heat from their outdoor heater, and they have a shade that blocked off the wind. It was very comfortable. I love on the inside that they have Italian travel tv playing, so I was happy to see that outside as well on a couple of tv's. We ordered three pizzas and they were every bit as good as anything we'd ever had when traveling to Italy and easily better than anything we've had here in the US. Each one had a different fresh cheese and that's exactly how they tasted: fresh. The crust and sauce were amazing too. We're really happy we gave this a try. The inside fine dining experience is one of the best we've had anywhere in the world, with exceptional food and service, and the lighter, al fresco menu featuring real Italian style pizza is just another reason that we think Quality Foods Market is the best restaurant in Tampa Bay, and one of the best anywhere around the world we've traveled.

    My wife and I struggled with letting the word out regarding this magnificent little gem of a true northern Italian bistro. Chef Chris and his beautiful family have created something that needs to be experienced. Authentic and magnificent northern Italian food sourced from the finest ingredients, most flown in fresh every week from Italy. Chef Chris was trained in real Italian “trattoria e ristorantes” all across Italy and brought his knowledge and experience back to share with us in his intimate and casual bistro surrounded by great wine and heavenly aromas. There are only four table tops inside and a few cafe tables on the front walk, so reservations are a must, but when you arrive you are warmly welcomed and encouraged to stay all evening….and it is sincere. You will meet Chef Chris and his team and they will make you feel like family. The dishes are sublime and some of the best we have ever experienced anywhere in the world, much less Tampa. Everything is fresh made to order so expect an appropriate wait between courses, but everything comes out as a feast for the senses and you will be transported to your happy place the moment you take your first bite. We were there for my wife’s birthday because we wanted to try something new after making the steakhouse rounds over the holidays….and the amazing thing is they are less than a mile from our front door in a little strip center. So we will be back often and bring our foodie friends to share in the magic.

    Your words are too kind, Jim. Thank you for trusting us to help you celebrate your wife's birthday; we are so glad that we were able to make the occasion all the more memorable. We look forward to seeing you both again in the near future.

    We tried something new tonight. The blue mussels were done in a spicy tomato with Calabrian chili pepper sauce. Chef Chris recommended we have him serve them over the Arrabbiata pasta. It was just the perfect level of spice and flavor. Delicious as always!

    My husband and I love Quality Foods Market, so when Chef Chris told us about his Mew Year's Eve pre-fixe, we snagged a table on the spot. Best decision EVER! The carpaccio with caviar and the oysters were outstanding, but the wild boar ragu was the star of the show. A great wine recommendation from Chef and a toast at 6pm with the whole dining room at midnight in Rome were the perfect additions to an already delightful evening.
    Quality Foods MarketResponded on January 21, 2024

    Once again, Chef Chris and his staff provided an amazing experience. My wife and I have been working our way through the menu for months, and everything has been nothing short of spectacular. Last night was no exception. We opted for the prix fixe menu for New Year's Eve, mainly because the main course was wild boar ragu, a dish I fell in love with in Tuscany a few years ago. Every course was perfection. I'm not a caviar expert, but the three we had were absolutely delicious, and we could hear another table talk about how much better the caviar was than what they had recently at another restaurant. The beef carpaccio and the oysters were hands down the best we've ever had anywhere. The beef literally melted in your mouth. The oysters were broiled with three different toppings and all were amazing. After those, we opted for an add on of oysters on the half shell and were presented with three different kinds from the northeast. Each one had its own unique taste and finish, and we couldn't really pick a favorite. We are very picky about raw oysters, and these were outstanding. They were very clean tasting and reminded us of oysters we enjoyed on a recent trip to Ireland. We then got the wild boar ragu. OMG, I dare say it. It was better than I remembered from Tuscany. The sauce was rich and the boar was tender, not gamey, and the pasta was similar to fettucine, but was made with red wine, giving it a unique taste that I can't describe, other than to say it was delicious. We finished off with a strawberry cake, which went great with champagne at the end of dinner. We didn't realize it at the time we made the reservation, but at 6pm, Chef explained it was midnight in Italy, so we watched fireworks from Rome on the big tv and toasted to the Italian New Year. My wife and I have done all kinds of New Year's Eve things, from fancy restaurants to low key affairs. This is one we will remember for a lifetime, and we're hoping to come back again next year and do it again!

    You are too kind! It is always a pleasure to have you and your wife dine with us, but we are thrilled that you chose us to spend the holiday with. Those oysters have made their way into our antipasti offerings and don't be surprised if the carpaccio makes an appearance as well!

    Excellent food and wine! The only reason I did not give 5 is because they didn’t have all desserts that were written in the menu. I chose 2 and they did not have them.
    Quality Foods MarketResponded on December 30, 2023
    Hello Simone! Chef Chris here. Thank you for your review and your feedback. I do apologize that two of the nine desserts on our menu were not available. Please understand that we make everything here from scratch, and to do so, I must order ingredients several days in advance. I base my projections on reservations made at least 72 hours in advance. Your reservation was made with just over 24 hours notice. In a restaurant this small, with just 16 seats, it is very common, to see some items, particularly desserts, dwindle in the evening, especially since we do our very best to offer our desserts the same day they are made to ensure their freshness.

    We made it a simple dessert/coffee date but the rainbow cookie cannolo was fantastic! I got a spiked hot chocolate and it was simply decadent! Not overly sweet and with the subtle addition of liqueur it made it a perfect adult beverage! Can't wait to go back for lunch!

    Once again Chef Chris and his staff have fortified their position as the best restaurant in Tampa Bay, and maybe even all of Florida. The attention to detail is incredible in the food is incredible. We started with burrata with Italian black truffle slices on top. WOW, was that good! For dinner, my wife opted for the simplest thing on the menu, the pomodoro. She was just looking for something simple after a few nights of holiday indulgence. We were blown away by the flavor, and Chef Chris confirmed that the dish is just three ingredients, crushed tomatoes from Italy, fresh basil from his own plants in the kitchen, and a hint of salt. It was tossed with a freshly made pasta. The flavors were unbelievable for such a simple dish and Chef even said that a meal doesn't have to be complicated to be good if high quality ingredients are used. I had the lamb chops and they couldn't have been more perfect. Everywhere else seems to overcook it or the meat itself is gamey. I've had them at Quality Foods Market several times and they have always been perfect. Each time we come, we always leave excited about our next visit.

    This has to be the best pasta I have ever eaten. My guest said so, too. Add-ons included beans pretending to be potatoes (DO NOT ASK CHEF HOW MUCH BUTTER WENT INTO THEM!) Mashed beans are better than potatoes. I had the Ragu, my guest had the pasta with sweet Italian sausage. Desert included the chocolate chip cannoli and the ricotta cheesecake. Great service and Chef stops by every table to talk about his preparation and pride in ingredients. I love fine food, but this was something extraordinary.

    Very small, quiet dining with only 4 tables inside of a wine shop so you have an unlimited choice. Chris, the owner, explained that he lived in Italy for a couple of years and studied in several restaurants so he makes only fresh and authentic Italian food. Eating here is a very unique but very worthwhile experience. Walking inside the shop, it’s surprising to see 4 well set dining tables inside, so don’t expect a lovely view. But it definitely allows you to focus on your table mates. The food was exceptional. I highly recommend this place.

    Outstanding. Again. The scallops were definitely the best scallops I have ever had, and may have been the best meal I have ever had.

    If you are looking for the best meal of your life, you absolutely cannot sleep on Quality Foods Market. If they were in South Tampa or Carrollwood, they would be booked weeks in advance. The intimate dining room allows Chef Chris to really interact with each and every guest while still making sure that everything that comes out of the kitchen is perfection. The snails are always a must for me; garlicky and buttery goodness. I won't eat lamb anywhere else now because the quality here cannot be beat and they are always cooked to a perfect medium rare.

    You always know how to make us blush, Amelia! It is always a pleasure having you and your family in for dinner and we look forward to your next visit.

    Best Italian Restaurant in Florida and best we have been to in the US. Chef Chris has to be one of the best chef's in the world based on his cooking techniques and care for quality. Chef Chris always delivers. We had the pasta made table side which was out of this world great. If you want great pasta, great seafood or a great meat dish, steak, lamb, etc. do yourself a favor and visit Quality Foods Market. Chef Chris and his family are great. Chef Chris is a perfectionist and an expert on cooking and foods. You can enjoy a leisure quiet meal or you can engage in a educational conversation about food with Chef Chris when he has time :)

    Chef Chris and his staff once again provided an experience that rivals anything, anywhere. Today Chef was doing tableside pasta with an aged cheese wheel. I've had a similar experience maybe half dozen times around the world and they were all good. This was unreal. He used an aged cheese as opposed to a young cheese, and explained why and how it would be different. I can't even describe the sauce, other than it was beyond fantastic. Chef Chris also provided an excellent wine choice that was so good we ended up taking two bottles home. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, Chee. Chef Chris works very hard to stick to the Italian classics, but also bring some new and innovative dishes to our guests, so he was thrilled to know that you enjoyed the tableside experience and his wine recommendation so much. We look forward to seeing you and your wife next time!
