Quality Italian - New York
Book your next event with us
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
We were seated over 30 minutes late with no real apology or explanation. Wouldn’t come back despite truly exceptional food.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Devon. On behalf of our team, we apologize for dropping the ball in this manner. I would like to get in contact with you to learn more about your experience as well as how we can make it better. If you would, please reach out to me directly at trich@qualitybranded. Looking forward to hearing from you.
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.
Thank you for your feedback! I will surely bring these comments up to the culinary team.
Service was great. Atmosphere very nice. Good lively crowd not too loud. Food is good not great.
But service and management made us feel at home. Definitely recommend
Wow thanks! We'll be sure to pass on the kind words to our QINY TEAM. Hope to see again soon!
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.
Thank you for you honest feedback! I will make sure to pass your comments along to the culinary team. We hope to see you soon.
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.
So glad to hear you had a nice time. The Garganelli Amatriciana is one of my favorites as well. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
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!
Wow, Galitk, that sounds amazing! So happy to hear Michael made your experience unforgettable. Looking forward to having you back.
The best food. Love the rigatoni with lobster. I think there is an entire lobster in the dish. I went and had it two days in a row!
Fitz, thank you for the awesome feedback--the lobster is one of my favorites as well!
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.
Tommy, thank you for your feedback. I will surely share your comments with the team.
Excellent food and service. Went for a post-Broadway show early dinner. Ordered the lobster rigatoni a la vodka and it was yummy. Ask for extra bread :)
Thank you for the kind words! OH, the bread!!! J
We had a lovely anniversary dinner. My only feedback though would be that I noted it was our anniversary in the reservation and there was nothing done about that. All good though
Extremely disappointed. Food was just ok. The portions were tiny and everything was exorbitantly over priced. Too many other amazing Italian restaurants in New York...would not return.
Sorry to hear that you didn't quite enjoy your dinner with us. We would love to hear more details on your experience, please feel free to reach me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org m. Thank you!
Everything was excellent from the moment we walked in. Our server was attentive. The busser’s were on point. And the food was delicious. Definitely will be back!
Wow, amazing, thank you. See you soon!
Terrific food but crazy noisy.
If was great i had visitors from out of state and i took then to my favorite restaurant which is quality and they enjoyed so much and the manger Dominic made them/us feel so welcomed.
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.
Yikes, I am sorry to hear! Definitely not what one would expect from a dining experience. I will surely pass your comments on to our maintenance team.
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.
Rosario our waiter was superb
Overall a very good experience. Casual yet very polished at the same time.
Amazing! So happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us.
Despite our great server, it’s Boring food & Overpriced.
Food, wine and service was all exceptional as always!
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!
Always solid food and service - steak and pasta with some oysters to start can’t go wrong
Place is always great. Food is spectacular, good atmosphere and service is always on point...
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.
The whole wheat garlic knots were worth coming just for themselves!
Fun night and delicious foods!
Love the food! The service was amazing, I been here multiple times. Best place ever!!! I wish they could open one in DC.
Great food !!
Excellent service and food! Highly recommend
Great service. Would definitely visit again!
Loved the food! Especially the chicken parmigiana chopped salad and Cesar
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
Food was AMAZING!!!! Service started out great. Once we got our food though, we were completely ignored. Our server was inundated with too many tables. My suggestion would be to eat early because it gets quite busy around 8:30 and 10 times louder. Finally had to flag someone down to get our food boxed up and check. At that point we were anxious to get out of there. I’m quite patient, but waiting around for 30 plus minutes AFTER we finished our meal was a little ridiculous.
Not close to what is described
This is a fun restaurant but very loud. Great food and service. The Chicken Parmigiana Pizza is their specialty. We enjoyed it but thought it lacked sauce. The warm garlic rolls were excellent as was their version of a Caprese Salad, with melt in your mouth cheese. The S’mores tart for dessert was good but the chocolate was solid. The Humor Me Strawberry Shortcake dessert was great, too. We will be back.
So glad to hear you had a nice time. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
This place has amazing food and fun ambience. My absolute favorite dish is the spicy vodka lobster rigatoni. It’s made in front of you! The chicken parm is always a fan favorite too but you need a group (minimum of 4 people).
Had a fantastic evening but were sat in the back room where only large tables of men were seated so it was incredibly loud and difficult to have a normal conversation with those at our table.
