Poor service - waited over 10 mins before someone came to the table to greet us (I don't usually complain about this because it was Friday but the service just had an attitude you could feel) - had to ask for water and it took another 10 mins to come (and it was our second bottle of Pellegrino - water came as we were finishing our entries so it was almost full when we left) - had the lobster pasta and had way too much vodka (put on at table side and wondered why so much was poured on the pasta) - was really quite excited to host my mother from out of town and left pretty disappointed - second time coming to the restaurant and enjoyed the first experience but last night will be my last visit.

The food is good. We had to leave our table and eat downstairs in the bar area because it was so noisy! You literally cannot hear the person you’re dining with.

The food was excellent, but I’ve been at quieter rock concerts. My date and I could not hear each other without yelling and we were sitting a foot away from the tables on either side. Even the waiter couldn’t hear or be heard without leaning inches to your face. They are also extremely busy, our water and wine (bottle on ice) were not refilled timely. I want to give them a break because it was raining so all of their outside tables weren’t available. But for the prices being charged, the customer shouldn’t have to compromise. And again, the food was truly excellent. Id give them another chance because of jt.

4 of us went to dinner before a show.

We ordered ONE order of chicken parm pizza in addition to apps and entrees

The chicken parm pizza on the menu cost $38 per person

We ordered for 1 person

When I got the bill, the chicken parm pizza was $76 ($38 twice)

When I questioned the waiter why the cost wasn’t $38, he said that’s the way it is

Waiter also said every table asks the same question because restaurant charges everyone double for this dish

Total scam and I will never be back

Crowded and noisy, but the food and service more than made up for it. Branzino and Spicy lobster pasta were great, as was the calamari. Our waiter was helpful and had a good wit. Will go back.

We couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate our first night in New York since February 2019. We had dined here before and it was everything we remembered it to be. The food is excellent. Make sure you try the brussels sprouts Calabrese and The chocolate olive oil cake for dessert. Both are amazing! The veal Milanese was very good but far too large a portion. Luckily my daughter and her husband were back at the hotel and enjoyed the other half of my entree. The grandkids loved the remainder of the ol the cake. My husband had no problem finishing his delicious filet mignon. And he relished every bit of the corn creme brûlée, a very unusual, very tasty side dish. We love Quality Italian!

Food quality was good but the portion sizes were twice what was needed across all our choices. This significantly detracted from our enjoyment. The noise level was also way too high.

We’ve been looking forward to Quality Italian after reading about good NYC restaurants. The restaurant is warm and comfortable. Service was prompt and professional. My wife’s salad was dripping with dressing, and she stopped eating after a half dozen bites. We notified the waiter. He said, “I’ll let the chef know.” That was the end of the conversation, with no follow up. For an Italian restaurant, we were also disappointed with the music soundtrack, which featured funk. Really?! We won’t return.

We originally booked outside but the table was not so desirable so fortunately they were able to accommodate us inside. It was worth the wait! The cesar salad and the Humor Me gelato were amazing. Our pasta was too.

One of our favorite midtown restaurants. The staff is great and food is terrific. Not necessarily classic Italian but the chef’s interpretation of it which is delicious.

Decent meal but very odd behaviour by our waiter. When perusing the dessert menu, we asked the waiter what he suggested. He said to try the tiramisu as it was unusual. So it was ordered. It comes out in a very unique presentation. Only problem was that it tasted lousy. When asked why he recommended something that tasted lousy the waiter said "I never said it tasted good, just that it was unique". That was a dumb thing to say. I would have expected a restaurant like Quality Italian, where I have eaten before and in fact ate the next night at Quality Meats, to have taken the dessert off the bill. They did not. I have spent thousands of dollars at these two restuarants and I regret to say that I will not be back for a while.

Quality Italian was one of my go to restaurants pre-pandemic. I feel like the food quality has dropped a notch or two, but it is still good.
We ordered several appetizers which were fine. We had baked clams and grilled oysters. As I mentioned, both were fine, but both could have been better. I had the filet special with spicy crab. It was fine, but it came out cold. Corn creme brulee and broccoli rave were good.
We'll definitely be back. Our server, Roberto, was great.

We Waited 15 minutes after being seated to be greeted to ask for wine or anything. One of the oddest Italian menus I have ever seen. Neither my wife or I were pleased with the food and each left 1/3 of it on our plate. My wife said everyone raved about the Chicken Parm Pizza so she was going to order is, menu said $36 and the waiter said, well that is a pizza for two so it will be $72, it’s$36/pp. also very odd, I don’t mind pricy food if it is good but $72 for a 12” pizza just a bit weird. Anyway, many better places to go in NYC

Great food and drinks only thing I would say is the Octopus does have the skin on it. Typically that is removed. Obviously this is how the chef makes it however, the wait staff or menu should indicate since it isn't common.

I’ve been in the industry for a decade, upper management for the last 6. They were a little less than accommodating, to a very simple request, which was off-putting. Also had to ask for a refill of water about 4 times & at their price point, that should not occur. But the food certainly was ‘quality’, very very good. I am going to go back at some point to give it another go, I would like to have a better experience.
