Extremely loud venue, we could not hold a conversation. The food was good and fresh, however it was lacking in creativity. The pricing would imply fine dining and I expected to be impressed but I was disappointed. The couple next to us got in a loud disagreement with the wait staff over the timing of there order which was appalling and made us reluctant to provide any feedback.

Quality Italian is our go-to for anniversaries and special occasions. The service is always excellent and the food is always a hit, especially the ricotta, creme brulee corn, steak, and deserts. My wife and I were there for a wedding anniversary and our dessert had a special message and champagne along with it. If anyone asks me for a recommendation for a great dinner in mid-town, QI is always at the top.

I've been to Quality Italian many times and have enjoyed it every time. The food is great, the service is world class and I enjoy the ambiance . Can be a bit noisy - but if you want it more quiet - go off peak hours. Lunch at 1:30 is much quieter I have found

Overall, the food and service at Quality Italian are solid. Nothing exceptional though. I found the restaurant to be too loud to have a conversation. I felt like I was in a club than a restaurant. I've been here before for brunch on a weekend and I remember the experience being much more pleasant. I don't think I'll come here for dinner. Its sister restaurant Quality Meats is better.

Thank you for your feedback Juliana. I'm sorry to hear you thought it was noisy. At times when it is busy it can get a bit loud. We do hope to see you again regardless, perhaps on a quieter evening.

Food was just ok but expensive, especially with the relatively small portions. The porterhouse pasta was underwhelming and not as hot as it should have been. The vodka pasta was quite good. The branding was good but we’ve had much better. Service was good.

Wait staff was fine but the food took forever. I eat there often and rarely does this happen during lunch but something must have gone wrong in the kitchen that day. I still like it and a go to for client entertainment.

I dined solo at Quality Italian on a Sunday evening. Overall the food was excellent—I had a pasta—the Garganelli Anatriciana—and the NY Italian Chopped Salad. The pasta dish was a perfect portion for me, with perfectly cooked pasta, a delicious red sauce and tender pork cheek. A highlight was their take on the Manhattan, the “Midtown” was excellent as well. The service was attentive but not hovering.

My son’s birthday. He picked the restaurant. Michael, the waiter, was off the charts. They gave us 2 free dishes. Michael
Showed up with the cannolis at the end. He must have overheard my son saying that is what he wanted for desert. Awesome!

Quality Italian was good...but not outstanding. The food was enjoyable but not very memorable. The service was OK, they were clearly trying to close, I did go pretty late. I would recommend it but was not on my top 10.

From the minute we went upstairs, we all said “do you smell that?” It smelled like post-flood or sewage. We asked our server and she said she didn’t smell it, but later admitted she did and she thought it was someone’s cologne. I used to love Quality Italian, but the food quality has also gone way downhill, and for the price, it’s just not worth it anymore. Too bad. I used to recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We had 4 people and ordered the chicken parm and a few sides. It was plenty of food but average for tastiness. It is a fun and lively place. Was not happy they charged $6 to refill an iced tea. Overall, a good experience before a show.

I love Quality Italian. It was my girlfriend and I’s third time dining at the restaurant — this time for our anniversary, and we’ll definitely be back.

To start, they bring out soft, warm bread brushed with garlic butter for the table — delicious. We always have the calamari as an appetizer, which is probably the tastiest I’ve ever had. It’s served with bacon, peppers, spicy mayo, and some Parmesan.

For entrees, the quality chicken parm is a must if it’s your first time, but keep in mind that it’s definitely to share. The “alla Rossini” is another great option if you enjoy steak, foie gras, and truffle. The spicy lobster rigatoni is outstanding for those craving a delectable pasta dish.

If you leave room for dessert, the s’mores gelato or humor me bar are both tasty.

Our server was excellent. He was polite, attentive, and provided recommendations. We were even given a complimentary glass of champagne and a complimentary dessert in recognition of our anniversary. Thank you QI!

I expected more given the restaurant’s reputation. Our server had offensive BO and was not good at describing or recommending items on the menu. My $50 steak wasn’t prepared to my specifications and server never came to check. Sent it back with a different server and then had to chase her down much later to see if it had been cooked longer. No apologies from server or attempt to rectify. Husbands pasta special was so-so. Again, we were disappointed overall.

We had an allergy concern, staff was will to take the info and seemed attentive but still served us several dishes that would have triggered the allergies if we weren’t diligent to catch them
Lots of mistakes and forgotten items ordered
Extremely cold with a/c that we asked to adjust and that never happened
