Quality Italian is a neo-classic Italian restaurant in Midtown melded with a steakhouse. We like it for the variety on the menu and the massive space.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Extremely loud. A very busy & popular place, but way too loud for a couple to have an enjoyable conversation. ***Also of great concern, something very scary and bizarre happened to me while dining here... I ordered one $24 glass of Moët & Chandon Champagne. Only a few sips into the glass, I became very dizzy and felt like I’d consumed 2-3 bottles on my own! But I had not. I sipped the same glass for the next hour, not realizing what might have been causing this extreme dizziness and uneasiness. We ate quickly & left within 75 minutes of our arrival. I didn’t drink anything else, nor had I had any other cocktails all day. The dizziness continued to get worse, and as we left, I could barely walk down the stairs of the restaurant on my own, across the street, and to our hotel room a very short distance away. The symptoms got much worse in the 30 minutes after we got back to our room. I don’t have any proof that my drink was tampered with, but that’s sure what it felt like! Thank goodness my husband was with me & got me back to our room safely! He and I shared everything else at the table, but he didn’t have any issues. He didn’t drink from my glass, so the open bottle of Champagne was the only different thing I had. The extreme symptoms hit me within 5 minutes of the first sip. Something was definitely wrong here. It was a very scary experience! I basically passed out shortly after we got back to our room at 10:30, and slept until 1am. When I woke up at 1am, the symptoms were completely gone. And I felt fine the rest of today, but the experience has me quite rattled. Who was to blame for this incident? And how often does this happen here? Again, I have no proof, but we’d been in our hotel room for hours before we went to dinner here, with nothing else to eat or drink prior to this dinner & single glass of Champagne. So what happened???

Food was very good but we found the restaurant too noisy. Fortunately they seated us in the back room which was a little quieter than the main room. However we were a group of 6 and I still had trouble hearing those seated across the table from me.

Overall I like Quality Italian. I travel a lot and I spend a lot of money on dining, I have no problem dropping a few hundred dollars on meals, but I still have a major pet peeve when higher-end restaurants nickel and dime you for little things. My number one pet peeve is when these places want to charge you $4 for every soda refill for my kids, and flat soda at that. Please, that's just plain greed. Then the ricotta appetizer comes with a large amount of cheese but three small pieces of bread so when we ask for a few more pieces of bread they charge us for it as well. I just find it greedy and ridiculous.

We booked for my husband's birthday and pre-requested a table with wheel chair access and quiet for my nearly deaf 89 year old mother. We were put at a large round table at the front of the restaurant with 2' between our 5 seats and could not hear each other in conversation. The Hostess was very responsive and accommodating and found us a table that should have been first assigned to us in the back room of the restaurant. That took 15 minutes unfortunately, and then the table service just went down from there. The bill with tip was $630 with only 4 cocktails, the oversized portions were just too much, and for that price there should be a staff on call in the room watching eagle eyed over all your diners. Clearly a dining experience for suits on expense accounts, wish we'd gone to Quality Meats around the corner instead. Can't recommend this restaurant. Too noisy, wait staff almost nonexistent, and WAY to expensive for what it was. It was like a Hoity toity wanna be city cousin of the Cheesecake Factory.

This was my first visit to Quality Italian. I have previously eaten at sister restaurant Quality Meats, which was outstanding, so my hopes were very high. While Quality Italian is very good, nothing about it was outstanding. The one high point was the lobster and pasta dish that my son ordered, for which the lobster was flambed tableside.

The server was very good and knowledgeable, but she was heavily pushing a Dover sole special, which was the priciest item on the menu.

There is not as much that is Italian about Quality Italian as you might expect, so if you're looking for Italian food, there are better options. But if you want a variety, with some good Italian options, Quality Italian is a solid choice.

The chicken parm pizza and the pastas were amazing, but we were a little disappointed in the roasted beet and farroe salad. It was Cheese heavy and only contained a few pieces of roasted beets. On the other hand, the cream corn brûlée was to die for and of course the desserts were good. As always the service was great and exactly what you would want from a fine dining restaurant.

We were looking for a restaurant near our hotel on West 57th St. We could not have found a better choice for the food and service, but the wine list is a little pricy even for NYC.
