First time at this restaurant for a business lunch. The food was delicious! service was good and staff friendly; we shared an appetizer of Shrimp cocktail and it was four of us and let me say that it was plenty - a large portion. I had one of the Chopped Salad (Spinach) with chicken and it came with blue cheese, nuts artichoke and it was tasty - not your typical salad. my colleagues had steak, hamburger and chopped salad with beef and their food was also well prepared and delicious! very large, spread out space. Excellent for a business meeting/lunch...we are definitely coming back and I highly recommend it.

Normal great food and service. Quality Italian is always at a high level of food, service and ambiance. Server realizes the importance of attentive service during a business meeting but not intrusive service to the discussion. Well done.

Service was "spotty" i.e., never saw a waiter between courses, main course placed without silverware, and just not around. Maybe they had too many tables! Food was spot on as always!

We love Quality Italian! We celebrate every anniversary and relationship related occasion with you all and you never cease to make it even more special each time. The only thing is that when we sit at the tables when you walk in directly to the right, they are very long for just two people and it is quite hard to hear one another in conversation. Other than that, every trip to the restaurant is perfect!

We went to the Quality Italian to celebrate the NYC 2017 marathon including 2 runners and wife of one of us. We have ordered 2 salads with side meats and sirloin (btw the online menu is different from what we got in a restaurant). All meets were overloaded with pepper and salted. My steak was overcooked to medium instead of ordered medium-rare (this is typical for US). The side dishes we got for the table included home fries and broccoli were covered with oil and salt.
Restaurant staff was "making a show" by preparing the meet sauce by the table, but in overall atmosphere and level of the food is was overkill.

We had a VERY bad experience with the man at the front desk upstairs! He did not know our guests had checked in downstairs and were waiting for us at the bar, and he refused to seat us thinking we weren’t all in the restaurant (we hadn’t spotted our guests yet, but they told the downstairs desk!)! He was exceedingly rude and threatened to throw us out of the restaurant cause we wanted to be seated after a long day of burying my mother in law!
