Chicken entree (not the Parm) was just okay, Branzino perfectly fine, yellowtail crudo a little flat, calamari app a crowd pleaser. Competent as always but maybe not particularly memorable.

I haven't been in awhile. Barolo by the glass was excellent. The calamari casino was a spin on a classic, that was really well balanced--and bacon. I had a peppered filet salad that was very good. Fillet wasn't as tender as it could have been, but this would be my only note. Everything else was very well done. Server was very good. I had never been for lunch before. I will add to the list.

Food is good- not amazing but good. Drinks were good (although small). We were rushed through our meal like an assembly line. Servers taking away the appetizer plates as soon as we were done - while I was actually still chewing. Rushed to order. Rushed to clear. Wasnt even offered a dessert or coffee. Had to ask for my espresso.

The most terrible invasive experience was the workers walking around surveying each table for how far along they were into the meal. I guess so they could understand how long the waits would be for tables. This guy walking around with a tablet trying to determine if I was going to order my main meal or have another drink or if was done. Then taking notes on me and my husband. Really really awful dining experience.

Wonderful meal, service and ambiance. One of the freshest and most delicious baby kale salad I've ever tasted. I usually order dressing on side, but forgot this time...salad was perfectly dressed. Large portion ... def enough to share. Housemade ricotta enjoyable, but not the best I've ever had. The honey made it. Shrimp cocktail was fine. All enjoyed their entrees. However, for $64.00, Dover Sole not worth it. Literally nothing else on the plate but the fish. Without the brown butter, the fish itself had very little flavor, despite being well prepared. Without a doubt the pasta dishes were the stars...Pesto Mafaldine perfectly cooked and so flavorful. The spicy lobster rigatoni alla vodka so DELICIOUS..the perfect adult comfort food. This was also a very large portion, easily shared by two people. Grilled broccoli rabe side GIANT and just the right amount of char-delicious. Chocolate olive oil cake and tiramisu both GIANT portions and sooooo DELICIOUS! Thank you Quality Italian! We will be back!

The food and service was outstanding at Quality Italian. The only issue was the downstairs hostess releasing the entire group of patrons to go upstairs like cattle heading down a chute. Order of arrival or organization was not apparent for the reservations. It was if she fired a starter pistol and everyone rushed upstairs. Her exact words were “you all can head upstairs”.

Responded on January 16, 2022

Good afternoon, Thank you for your comments. With a such small space to work with, it does get a little tight for guests that have reservations for upstairs, especially when they are all arriving at once. I will relay this information to our front of the house service team, as we never want to create that type of feel upon arrival. We appreciate you letting us know and glad that you enjoyed everything else. Always Appreciated, Ariella J. Spencer Guest Relations Manager

Went to celebrate my anniversary with my boyfriend. Really loved the ambiance and decor, busy for a Wednesday night which was great. We both started off with the quality mule, which was delicious and fresh. For apps we had the sausage and pepper toast as well as the prosciutto platter. We greatly enjoyed both of these dishes. For entrees I had the agnolotti while my boyfriend had the lobster penne vodka. While I would probably skip on the agnolotti, I would definitely suggest the lobster penne vodka. Spicy, flavorful and they come to the table to cook the lobster. For dessert we were treated to a free s’mores ice cream situation. Delicious and very nice of the staff. The espresso martini was just okay. The service on the other hand was excellent, very attentive and gave great suggestions. Overall it was a very pleasant anniversary dinner, very happy we chose to try it out. Will definitely have to try the chicken parm pizza.

Overall a disappointing experience & waste of what could have been a wonderful & memorable dining experience.

Appetizers were fine, salad was great, drinks were disappointing, entrees were disappointing, server made us wade through several upsell attempts (for instance, my wife asked for a light pasta suggestion and our server tried suggested she order the porterhouse steak because it comes with some pasta?).

Ambiance and location are both very nice & hostess staff was very nice & attentive, though.

We had a show to get to and didn’t have time to bring up the whole thing to management so hopefully they are able to read this. We won’t bother returning, though.

A colleague and I hosted clients for lunch and I was aware the whole time that the music was not only too loud, but more of a club vibe than mid-day business lunch. When "New Jack Hustle", explicit version came on, it was too much. The manager should have been aware that the music in general was too loud and, in my opinion, inappropriate.
