Quality Italian

Just had a pleasant meal at Quality Italian with some friends. The four of us decided to split the Chicken Parm Pizza (it's 2 portions that's served as a 11-12in pizza) and several appetizers & sides: Oysters, U7-Shrimp, Corn Gnudi, Aged Porterhouse Agnolotti, and Rigatoni and Meatballs. Service was impeccable as was the atmosphere. Everything was above average and nothing was outstanding to me (Porterhouse Agnolotti was pretty good). I thought the meal was very reasonably priced given that we had wine, beer, and cocktails. About 90pp with tip. I'd go back but wouldn't necessarily rush back...

    Forgot 2 things:

    Beef Steak Tomato & Straciatella. This appetizer was actually fantastic.

    QI Lemon Meringue Tart
    Strawberry-Basil Sorbet. In fairness, I'm not a huge desert/sugar fan so I found this fine. The crust was especially notable.

      Had Scarpetta tonight and, I must say, I'm a fan. The Spaghetti & Basil is deserving of the praise. A step above QI from the night before I must say.
