Quality Italian Ratings and Reviews
This was not our first time. We love the restaurant and the vibe. Food is very good and the wines by the glass are great. Our service was not stellar but it could have been the time we were there. Also, the spicy lobster penne vodka wasn’t what I was expecting. Presentation was very cool as they prepare the lobster tableside. However, the alcohol they used to create the flaming fish didn’t burn off completely and it ruined the flavor of the dish. Other than that, the meal was perfect!
The restaurant is not as good as in the past. Greeting staff were not welcoming,coatcheck was understaffed, our server was disorganized and the food was fairly good definitely not great. It’s a shame there is no “captain”, maitre d’ , manager or anyone who goes around and makes diners feel valued. Or at least have better servers. Obviously business is not suffering and they don’t need my business. This was our last meal here. Too many other great options for steak and “Italian”.
Quality Italian was great. My family went for brunch after spending a morning in NYC. We started with appetizers, the sausage toast, scallops, whitetail, ricotta, and of course some beverages. All were outstanding, tasty, savory, much enjoyed. For our main course we had two chicken parmesan pizzas, there six of us and my son-in-laws love to eat. They were amazing, very tasty, a bit pricey, but worth the experience. Daughter commented all was super delicious.
Service was excellent, friendly, and the venue was very nicely decorated and well kept.
I have dined at Quality Italian twice and both times the food has been top notch. The one thing that I do not like about the place is how quickly they push to turn the table. The 1st time I went with a colleague after dessert we were talking and finishing our drinks and were asked to vacate our table / move to the bar so they could accommodate other reservations. During my most recent 2nd visit, although the team was attentive we had 2 people working our table so it felt like 2x the pressure to wrap it up since we were asked 3 times if everything was all set and they took the signed check before we got up.
The food is good - the service attentive - my only suggestion is to not rush folks out the door who are spending $100-150+ on a 2 person dinner.
Always a happening spot. Often have to wait for a reservation. Lots of seating areas. Waiters are professional and attentive. Great drinks. Lots of menu choices in many categories. Excellent Caesar salad, Pasta with Lobster and Steaks. It's loud and the spaces are crowded but we always leave happy.
Really excellent meal from start to finish. Cocktails and bread in a little pan that you pull apart to dip in some really good olive oil. Then, the Roman salad ( essentially, a caesar with these slices of lemon!) And finally, a veal picatta peppardelle that was delicious.
There are so many good restaurants in NY - don’t waste your time and money on Quality Italian. It’s overpriced and bland. Meh describes it perfectly. We really wanted somewhere with great atmosphere. This place looked like a strip mall steak chain. The fresh rolls were nice and the oysters were good but the rest of the menu and meal was uninspired and dull. For the same price - or even less-you could have a great meal at a true New York steak house.
Only come here if you don't want to hear the people sitting across from you and you don't want to be waited on. Even complaining to the manager didn't help and took him 20 mins to even come over. Do not go for any special occasion or any reason for that matter.
We went for dinner with our 6 and 8 year old, although it's a beautiful restaurant there were several younger children. We felt very comfortable and had couples around us. Food was exceptional, grilled octopus, lemon chicken, filet mignon for 2, and dreamy desserts the ferrero rocher gelato💗
This restaurant was delicious, but the service is SO rushed. It's almost stressful. And my husband told them twice to remember a candle in the dessert for my birthday and they forgot. I honestly didn't care, but he was so disappointed. What made it worse is that the servers just put the food down quickly and barely say 'enjoy!" or anything. Someone is doing something wrong in that kitchen..... or they are short a few people. There's no reason to be so rude to people who are paying $55 for filet mignon. The food was deliciousm, but I missed the warmth you get at places like Craft or Mailino. Nice restaurants don't have to be so snobby and rude. Because of that, I would not go back or recommend it to someone trying to celebrate a special occasion. We just had a baby and never go out... so very disappointed in my choice!
Loved the food and atmosphere. Loud music at bar but then nice and quiet in the restaurant section. Food was excellent. It was our anniversary and we had ordered dessert. They came after and said they realized it was our anniversary and sent us home with two delicous cannolis.
We thought the food was excellent, but we couldn't get service at all. We saw our waiter twice the entire afternoon, and the manager about 6 times who apologized numerous times and comp'ed us some items but still not sure I would recommend it. We were seated right up front too, so no excuse, except they had some photography going on.
