The food was outstanding but what made our night was the outstanding service. I forget our waiter’s name but he had an irish accent. Gem of a guy.

The chicken parm pizza lives up to the hype. The honey with calabrian peppers was insane! The corn creme brulee stole the show and the lobster rigatoni changed the way I rate pasta dinners.

The steak I had cost $58.00 it was horrible . It was so bad they refunded the cost of the steak I have eaten in many restaurants this was the worst.

My date and I decided to try Quality Italian for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. I was promptly seated outside and my date was a little late. The hostess was friendly and very accommodating. The atmosphere was very good. The service was friendly and efficient. So, why the 3 rating? My date and I are vegetarians. We figured we would have appetizers and a pasta dish. There was only one pasta dish we could order. And that may have been my least favorite. Though, I was offered spaghetti and tomato sauce from the kids menu. Anyway, it was ok. Would I go back? Of course not. Would I recommend it? Try it. If you are not a vegetarian, you may love it. As far as price. It was a little overpriced. I could have done better at my local pizza place. But then again, that’s me.
Overall, a pleasant atmosphere, right by the park that should add a couple of veggie pasta dishes to their menu.

Went to celebrate a special occasion. QI made it memorable. Food was excellent. Shared a bunch of apps.. baked clams, calamari, tuna. All delicious. Entrees included king crab legs, tomahawk steak, pasta, chicken. Everyone loved their meals. The service was impeccable. They really made it a special night!

This is still one of the best restaurants in the city. They have maintained a very high level of quality of service and food for a long time, which is extremely challenging in this market. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience a unique twist on Italian food.

The service and food is exceptional. The calamari appetizer was perfectly prepared. Highly recommend the corn gnudi, it melts in your mouth. The pasta with sausage is very good as well. The chicken parm pizza is good with the chili honey is drizzled on it. The sorbets were a treat. A little pricey, but worth it!

The manager, Noah, was extremely rude to us. There was not enough sun protection outside and when the waiter moved us into the shade, Noah came over and said that the waiter should not have moved us. My friend has skin cancer and we specifically said we can’t be exposed to direct sun slight when we sat down. So unprofessional as we were still eating our meal. We love the food but based on that experience we’d have a hard time returning again.

I found the food mostly disappointing. The Lemon Chicken a la Alan was barely lemon flavored and I do not remember it smothered in a salad (I wouldn't have order a salad to start, if I had) and I wouldn't have ordered it if it had tasted like that. That WAS my favorite entree. My friend's Branzino was smothered in cherry tomatoes. He barely ate those. I tasted it - very bland. The Spinach was very good. The corn brûlée was good, but had to send it bad as it came COLD! Desserts had no interest to either of us. I am sure there are other items on the menu that fair better. I used to love Quality Italian. It is very popular. If you don't want to wait - go early.

The only thing was that when my party and I arrived we had to move
To a different table inside the dining room , Cause it was being closed . But noticed the room had people , I’d appreciate the next time if we could have free dessert’s

The food was okay at best. I have had the food at Quality Meat multiple times in the past and used that experience to gauge my overall enjoyment at Quality Italian. However, I don't feel it was as refined, nor as intricate. Not sure I would come back.

What a change for the better! Staff recognized and thanked us for our frequent patronage of this establishment. The sommelier even recalled the last bottle of wine we ordered and was most helpful with our latest sampling. The wine list is extensive and filled with excellent values.

First time dining back indoors in 14 months and it felt great as the space for one is perfect . Our server Natasha was a pro and described everything in delicious detail. Everything from Uni toasts, their take on guacamole!!! , pillowy gnocchi, branzino. And blood orange creamsicle gelato were heaven. Couldn’t have asked for a better birthday dinner with my best friend
