What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

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.

I made reservations for my husband bday at 7:15 pm.
Table wasn’t ready on time and my family was seated 45 min later!
In any situation I would appreciate phone call or email that restaurant is running very much behind!
It’s was extremely noisy and lamb chops was row!
For your price point I expected much better service!

Food is great, the 'for two' portions could probably feed 3, and the drinks were stiff. Really enjoyed dinner

Great place......but the wine list is incredibly over priced.

Cheapest bottle was $109.

Need to add other options people can afford.

Had to wait about 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. Crowded- which we viewed as a good sign. Louder and more hip vibe. Fine for us (4 friends on a night out). Drinks were all great (whiskey sour was not too sweet, had a good but small beer list, good selection of wines by the glass). Food was amazing. Did the chicken Parmesan for 2 as an appetizer to split between all of us, as recommended by George our server. Excellent choice and unique preparation (it looks like a cheese pizza... but it’s a giant chicken parm patty... soooo good). Had pastas as main- all tasty. The angiolloti was the smallest, tasty but the person who ordered it was glad we had gotten starters. Dessert menu is small and gelato focused. Great light end to the meal (we had the s’mores thing which was good and two flavors of gelato, strawberry and Ferraro rocher, both good). All in all a fantastic night out and just what we hoped it would be. Pricey but no more so than other similar restaurants in the area. George was a great server. Dinner took about 3 hours, again fine for us.

I am a big fan of Quality Meats and decided to try this venue based off of my delightful previous experiences with this brand. I enjoyed it immensely with my only disappointment being that I expected a lot more Italian options. I also was sad that the special of veal parmigiana for two wasn’t explained properly. Had it been, we would have gotten that dish. As it stands, the experience was good while the service was rushed at times.

The ambiance of Quality Italian is great and there was plenty of room in the bar area for a drink while we waited. The dinner rolls and corn creme brulee (also found at Quality Meats) are my favorite. Chopped italian salad was delicious as well as the steak. The only thing that was underwhelming were the baked clams. We had a table right next to this bar cart (for steak sauce?) so there was too much coming and going but otherwise was a great night out.

The appetizers are really great. The salads are only fair and the pasta dishes are mediocre. Our server was wonderful. Some of the other dishes are interesting. The side dishes are pretty much pedestrian from Manhattan. Overall the ambience is OK the food is good but not outstanding and it is extremely pricey for what you get. It is a fun place to go but not at the cost that it is. It pales in comparison to it’s sister Restaurant quality meats.

Great service. Erin, Peter, Victor, and one more guy... where amazing! I don't know how we received multiple servers but they were all great. We ordered the grilled octopus (cooked perfectly), the ricotta, the avocado, and lobster ravioli dishes. AMAZING. We will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our meal here. The service was excellent and the staff as a whole was very friendly and helpful without hovering. My only disappointment was my ribeye, while cooked to perfection the piece had a fair amount of gristle and I don’t mean fat because a ribeye is a fattier cut, but this was that cartilage that is typically found in lesser quality cuts so that was a surprise as we’ve eaten here as well as Quality Meats and their ribeyes are typically to die for. That said the steak was huge so even with cutting the gristle away there was still plenty left over to take home in a doggy bag and I was full. I’m not one to send food back unless it’s spoiled but I’m certain if I brought it to the waiters attention he would’ve brought me a new piece. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves steak and seafood with an Italian twist.

We went to QI to celebrate my sons 25th birthday. I have been there several times over the last few years. Awesome food and location. The food does not disappoint. You can not go there without ordering the Chicken Parm pizza. Seating is very tight in spots. Service was not as attentive as one would expect at QI. Also very pricey! Be sure to kiss the pig. LOL

I had dinner here after new years and it was spectacular! The waiters were very attentive and the food was incredible! I had the spicy lobster rigatoni and it was delicious! The dry aged porterhouse agnolotti is also mind blowing! I tried some and I literally had to sit back. We were a table of 4 and everyone did not have one compliant about the food. The decor of the restaurant was also very nice; giving the place a nice, warm, and calming atmosphere. The food/drinks are a bit pricey but well worth it.

Food was pretty bad. My skirt steak was very chewy, the eggplant appetizer had no taste. Overall the size that made me wonder whether it was Italian or French. Tasteless foods. I won’t recommend to anyone.

This is our second trip to QI. Both times the food was outstanding. Last night however, the service left a little to be desired compared with the prices on the menu. My water glass was never refilled. After I finished my first cocktail, I ordered a beer. I didn’t receive that beer until I was done with my meal. So no water, no cocktail, no beer for a big portion of my meal. That was disappointing.

Again the food was outstanding. The service, not so much.

I really do enjoy this place, been here several times for work. This time with my adult kids and girlfriends before the Nutcracker and while service was great and food very good. They have to change the wine list!!!!

There were maybe 2 wines under $110 a bottle that fit out cuisine. With 5 people that goes quickly. I asked a waiter for help and best red he could come up with was $94. Even restaurants with notable wines list can find affordable wines for a large table. Even wines snobs will agree after the 2nd glass the ability to discern level of quality is diminished, it's nice to have that special wine to start and be able to switch to a less expensive quality wine after that. 3 bottles, approximately $340 before tax really makes me very hesitant to return for a personal visit
