Quality Italian - New York

Excellent restaurant! Modern Italian menu and very professional service
A restaurant that started as a battle against the BS Manhattan food establishment has become part of the problem. Nick in the kitchen is full of himself in ways that Keller, Achatz, Ripert and other actual chefs would never dream of - denying ten year olds basic amendments to more complex menu items out of what can only be described as pure hubris, and relying on salt to do his work for him on the adult dishes. Stillman & Co need to spend more time as customers in their own dream turned factory.
Can’t go wrong w the Chicken Parm Pizza!!! Amazing!
Amazing! Lovely ambiance, chicken parm pizza is a must! I can't wait to go back
Most dishes were okay. Nothing was amazing. One of us ordered the clam pasta and the pasta was very undercooked. I’m not talking about al dente because we love al dente pasta. Our desserts were very pretentious but didn’t taste that great. I would’ve expected much more for quality brand restaurants but it was not that good.
We were a group in the city for business & we went for wine week Friday lunch and we were so happy with the atmosphere, wine & food! Our favorite dishes were the ricotta with honey drizzle & creme brûlée corn. Absolutely going back next year!
Mini Family vacation in NYC and we choose QI because it was so close to our hotel, short walking distance. The food and service was great, big sharing portions. Our waiter was absolutely wonderful, impeccable customer service. We had a delicious meal. Thanks
Went to Quality Italian for Wine week which seems to be growing in popularity. Very noisy this time which I should have expected but they do not make my steak medium well anymore. Disappointing, still a good place but was not as happy with my food for the price. Got well done skirt steak that was burnt around the edges and was so crowded hard time to get my waiters attention. Paid 80 dollars for a mediocre lunch. Next time hope will be better. Rating this on past experiences.
The food is very sophisticated and superb! The atmosphere is great.The service is outstanding. A must when in NYC.
Delicious meat (arrived a little cool), and fabulous Ceasar salad.
Always enjoy QI! And am a huge fan of the chicken parm pizza! Must be kept on the menu always!!!! Would be nice if you had some less expensive bottles of wine as options on the menu...
Very poor table service and waiter with rude attitude. All my guests voluntarily expressed the same opinion. Pity. Won’t go back
Always the best!!!
Food is great, some of the best service at a restaurant in NYC. Tip: Some menu items are confusing/overpriced as they are listed. For example, the chicken parm is listed as "for 2" and the price per person. In all reality, the dish serves 4 with a couple sides. They charge you for 2 no matter what (if you have 3, they don't charge for 3 people), but there's no way 2 people can finish it. So just order that like you would a pizza that multiple people will split. They should really just list items like this as "family style" and charge the full amount instead of the tricky way they list it now.
The chicken Parmesan pizza was incredible!!! The restaurant was lively and fun. It was pretty loud, but you can easily overlook that.
Excellent brunch!! Celebrating two friends bdays. We were not ordering dessert but they brought two (complimentary) with candles lit... )so nice of them!! We loved our server!!
DEFINITELY ORDER THE CHICKEN PARM PIZZA!!
We've been going to Quality Italian for years for special occasions (anniversaries, Valentine's Day, etc.). We usually have an outstanding experience but this last time it felt short.
The hostess was first going to sit us at a table with a large plant hanging right on top of one of us (literally would have been on our head). We requested a new table and were eventually seated at a new table, which was great.
Our server was not very attentive and we had to make several efforts to get his attention and he did not check in on us during the meal.
We ordered dessert and unfortunately my wife was brought the wrong dessert, which we realized too late.
We did speak to a manager and he was apologetic and offered to comp us a drink or something else but we declined, as we were already ready to go.
We'll likely still return but we'll be more hesitant/not expecting the usual service we've had there.
Most of our food was outstanding. We returned to Quality Italian largely due to memories of the amazing chicken parm, but this time it was our least favorite. It was a little dry and very salty.
I actually love sitting in the room even more than I like the food, although my smoked salmon & ricotta was delicious. My only complaint - and it is hardly unique to QI - is waiters referring to me as “guys.” I am a woman of a certain age and I am not a guy. You really don’t need to call me anything - dear, hon, lady - just be pleasant and attentive. But please, NOT GUY. That’s it. Rant over.
The Corn Creme Brulee and the Brussel Sprouts were excellent, and do not miss out on the Tomahawk Ribeye.
Baked clams were not good. Not cooked. Chewy and undercooked. Otherwise good experience.
Joseph was our server and he was great advising us on what to pair together and taking care of us
I've dined at Quality Italian several times in the past and have not been disappointed. This business lunch was no exception. My guest and I both had salads, which were perfectly prepared. Service was professional and not intrusive. I look forward to my next lunch (or dinner) at Quality Italian.
Been coming here for years and it is always a treat because of the memories that we’ve made here. Don’t sit anywhere near the door on cool nights.
Food and service is always top top. Will be back.
Food was excellent. Our server was very attentive. Absolutely great food. Will go back here over and over again.
Food was delicious.
Server was very personable.
Always a go to for a good meal.
The food was very good. The Osso Buco was the only thing not amazing in the menu.. We had a group of four and I wanted to order the chicken prm pizza for myself.. However its 50 dollars per two ppl.. We had 4 ppl so I had to pay double for my own pizza. Makes no sense the same pizza and size is double because more ppl are at the table went from 50 to 100 dollars.
The service was very disappointing. I have been to Quality Italian many times and have never had an experience like this. I had to ask for bread over 3 times and they kept bringing it to all the tables around us. Water was also hard to get. Further, once our food came out no one knew who it went to so it sat for about 5 minutes while all the servers tried to figure it out. Very disappointing
Very good but over-priced
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and decided to have a nice lunch at QI. This isn’t our first time here so we already know the food is good, but we were a bit disappointed with our service. Our waiter never came to check on us, didn’t care to fill our waters, or empty drinks, and was rather unfriendly. But looking around, he was chatty and friendly to other tables. Not sure what he had against us. We were well dressed, polite, and really just came to have a nice lunch. I expected more from QI.
Chicken parm with prosciutto was one of the best meals we’ve ever eaten. Amazing!
Each and every aspect of the lunch experience was perfect. From the moment we arrived until we left the service was excellent. I would highly recommend it.
Really good service. Chicken parmigiana is enormous. Took so much home that we had another dinner.
