Appalled at service and rudeness!! 5/31/2011

Food is one of my passions. I love to eat out, try out different places, from your amazing hole in the wall taco place all the way to three michellin star restaurants. I have never been treated so rudely in my life. I asked the waiter a question about the menu, he spoke softly so I had to ask again and then in front of all my friends he said, ""oh, the difficult one has questions!"". Then when I ordered the truffle carpaccio, he asked again from the other side of the table, do you know how much that dish costs? First of all, I get it, things with truffles are expensive but if the white truffle risotto at one of the best restaurants in the city is 250 i seriously doubt that that carpaccio is $400 as he claimed. All in all the most rude and appalling service I have ever encountered in NYC. Angelo was the waiter's name! Beware more

Delicious Italian Panini on the UES 2/26/2010

If you find yourself on the Upper East Side, in the mood for an authentic Italian Panini and coffee, this is the spot to go to. The narrow, although long, space has limited seating, but the few minute wait will be well worth it. For the sophisticated pallate, the “Panini di Via Quadronno” section of the menu will provide choices such as the Tentazione (Prosciutto, smoked mozzarella, rucola, and shrimp) and the “award winning” Non ti scordar di me (Speck, brie, and pate). The less adventurous can choose from the “Panini Semplici” section which focuses more on single ingredients. Looking around, the Open Faced sandwiches also looked enticing with the ability to cover a thick piece of toast in a variety of options. A cup of European coffee is great to end the meal, possibly with a gelato or their special deconstructed tiramisu. more

Geat place to grab a Italian panini and cappuccino 6/19/2009

I love Via Quadronno. Very cozy environment and the food is out of this world. When ever I go their I feel I am right back in Italia. I higly reccomment this place to anyone who is looking for a nice Sunday brunch or anyday lunch spot. Pros: Best Panini's in NY more

??MIN 10 DOLLARS FOR THE DELIVERY???? 11/30/2008

I'm a regular customer at ViaQuadronno, almost every day, always delicious, i called for a delivery the first time yersterday because i was sick, and the young lady at the phone told me""we have to charge you at least 10 dollars for the delivery, because the busboy has to take a taxi...""'\r WHATTT??? i usually take 8-10 minutes to go in ViaQuadronno, and i didn't run the marathon, and the busboy has to take a taxi??? Are you kidding??\r \r \r Pros: food Cons: any italian staff more

really good 6/28/2008

The food is good, everything on the menu is excellent. This isn't a fancy joint by any stretch but they have great food, great wine and excellent service. If you're looking for a casual and reasonably priced italian restaurant with awesome food, this is the spot. I heard they opened also in white plains, will go...\r \r Pros: good food Cons: little pricey more

Delicious!! 1/21/2008

We just happened to walk by this gem during a weekend in the city, and decided to give it a try for lunch. We had two pretty bad dinners during our weekend vist and this was lunch before we headed home. What a relief to finally have a GREAT meal. It wasn't cheap, but this is NYC - not much is. At least if you enjoy what you're paying for you don't feel like you've been taken. We sat at one of the tiny tables up front. It was tight but not bad. Two of us had one soup, two sandwiches, two cappuccinos and one tiramisu. Lentil soup tasted like home-made and the waiter asked if we were sharing the soup as he could split it between two bowls. Thought it was nice of him to ask, and we had him split it. It was a decent amount of soup still even split between two people. The sandwiches were fresh, simple, and just delicious. We indulged on capuccinos and shared a tiramisu - it was worth it! yes, it's crowded but there's a reason! Pros: Good food Cons: Small space, crowded, pricey more

I wish I had discovered this place years ago 11/23/2007

This restaurant is a true treasure of Madion Ave. I just ate there for the first time recently and am lost... more

Cute Place 7/2/2007

I rather like Via Quadronno. Granted the service is spotty, but the food is authentic. Plus, despite being overwhelmed, the waiters are always hospitable. It's expensive for what it is, but overall I have a pleasurable time eating here. I recommended the lasagna in particular. The $10 and up panini's are also solid. My chief complaint about eating here the size of the room. You feel tightly packed when eating and it can be uncomfortable when the room is crowded. But I guess that adds to the authenticity of the place. The coffee bar at the front is good for a quick bite or as espresso, and the gelatto stand that they put out over the summer is worth a look. Pros: Good Italian Food, Very Cute and Authentic Cons: Cramped Quarters, Inconsistent Service, Expensive Considering the Type of Food more

Atrocious service (even if the sandwiches are delicious) 5/31/2007

If even one person strays away from Via Quadronno from reading this review, I will be grateful. This is one of those instances in which the arrogance and seeming impenetribility of a snooty, respected instiution meets the hard candor viglance facilitated by the internet. \r \r \r First, make no mistake: VQ's meats and sandwiches made thereof are extraordinary. The menu of sandwiches with ""up to six ingredients"" looks like a haphazard mess of cuts and cheeses you've never heard of, but the results are marvelous. So much for that. \r \r I have never, however, encountered worse service anywhere, nor have I encountered people so unwilling to make amends -- even if their paychecks depend on it. The offenses: service is slow from top to bottom. Slow to take our order. Slow to bring drinks (the waiter forgot my water), slow to deliver first course, even slower to deliver second course. The waiter messed up my order and when i called him on it he acted as it if was my fault for ordering the wrong thing in the first place. When we asked him to speed up the service, he did the opposite. When he overcharged me, he shrugged and said, ""eh what's a dollar?"" (He'll find out when he sees his tip.) Mind you, this was not some elegant waiter with an encyclopedic knowledge of all things Italian; he was nothing special at all, except for his attitude. \r \r \r \r Then I found out where the attitude coms from: the management. I tried to coax an apology or some pleasant gesture from the hostess, but she would have nothing to do with it. She looked at me as if she knew exactly what I was complaining about yet didn't care, and she showed me the door. On my way out, I told her that it's not the waiter's fault for being a bad waiter; it's the management's fault for not training him properly. I don't think she got the hint. \r \r Mind you, I'm really not that demanding. I just don't like being insulted and kept waiting when I'm paying $15 for a ham sandwich. Pros: Incredible, authentic meats and cheeses Cons: Slow, rude service, and even worse from the management more

chic and night 4/24/2006

There is something terribly indulgent about sitting at one of Via Q's bare, picnic-style tables and paying as much for a three-course dinner as one would at world-renowned Cafe Boloud, three blocks north. And yet, the experience is incredibly satisfying. The pasta is consistently perfect, and the house salad one of the best in the city. If you're dining solo, you will feel completely at ease in the cozy environs; in fact, you're likely to see at least one other solo diner hunched over a book, sipping a glass of Chianti. Please note, however, that this review only applies to Via Q after dark; during the day, this peaceful oasis is rudely besieged by strollers, cell-toting real estate brokers, and Madison Ave power shoppers. more

Ms. 1/11/2005

Fell in love with this place the first time, but the second time, I was insulted, offended and embarrassed because I was accused trying to walk out without paying a measly $20 tab (we not only paid the tab but had left a generous tip). If I wasn't with a friend from out of town, I would have been my loud and obnoxious self and told them what they could do with their $20 tab and would have taken my tip back. more

Amazing and Authentic 10/28/2004

You can't beat this little known beauty. I recommend it for a quick breakfast or brunch. It has the appeal that only pure authenticity can bring, the same attraction that I feel in Florence when I see that oh-so-perfect cafe around the bend. Pros: Food, Ambiance, Price more

Bravo Via Quadronno 7/2/2003

At long last, an authentic Italian Caffe Bar/Ristorante here in New York City!!! The coffee is exquisite, pastry, gelati, all superb! Whenever I miss Italy (every day), I head for this place. Oh, as for the reviewer who complianed of high prices, fondue that conisted of ""bread and peas"", and the ""old rich people eating poor food""; try the Olive Garden over in Times Square. It's full of ""young people eating inedible food"" - this place is obviously wasted on the likes of you. more

Excellent! 6/9/2003

I shared the Vegetable Soup to start, and I sampled both the Tentazione and Barbagia. What an excellent lunch. The soup was light and greatly complimented by the beautiful olive oil drizzled bread basket. The Tentazione was so delicious, the proscuitto/shrimp/pink sauce might sound weird but it works. The Barbagia, although might be a little too gamey for innocents, is pulled together with the red onions-the melted Camembert is so rich and sinful over the venison proscuitto. Service was also great. more

As close to Italy as you will get in NYC 4/3/2003

The espresso is as close as you will get to a real Italian espresso - the ambiance is authentic, and all of the waitstaff is charming, italian, and eager to please. It is pricey, but given the location that is not surprising. It is more desirable to go on a weekday during the day - the weekeknds tend to be overrun with folks from out of the neighborhood. Pros: Authenticly Italian, Great Service Cons: Expensive more

Back in Milan! 3/25/2003

We had lunch at this adorable little cafe and loved it. You can grab a quick espresso & gelato at the front bar, or sit in the back to have delicious Northern Italian treats like bresaola and arugola panini, carpaccio, or even lasagna. The special tiramisu was the cherry on top. The prices were reasonable - we plan to go back! On a sunny day you could get lucky and sit at one of two tables outside. more

it's the place 2/2/2003

I love this place. It is best for prelunch and lunch! so cute. their sandwiches are a must! the previous reviewer must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed when he went. I have never had a bad experience, and believe me, i know my food and my restaurants! Pros: sandwiches, ambience more

Please ! 1/3/2003

Ok, it is very cute restaurant.... Food sucks. I went there with two of my friends to have fondue dinner. It was about $30/person (2 people minimun) for fondue. Fondue has breads and kind of vegetables that you get at cheap diner. So we ordered Fondue and a Paella ($22), and it only had bunch of green peas..... I expected more stuff in it.... I ordered regular coca-cola, and they gave me diet coca-cola. Only rich looking really old people were there that night eating poor looking expensive foods...only breads and peas..... I will never go there again.. We wasted $70 per person for breads and peas...... Cons: Very Expensive more

Great place but spacy waitstaff 12/3/2002

This place has so much charm! We sat at a little table tucked away in a corner in the back and had a full view of the restaurant - very cute. The food was really good but I wouldn't recommend this place to picky eaters. My only two complaints are that (1) our server was a real space cadet and kinda inattentive and (2) the sodas were really small; overall, though, I had a great time and really enjoyed my dinner! more

ultimate goodness 7/6/2002

i discovered this place three months ago and fell in love with it on the spot. the place is a bit hidden, which enhances its beauty, coziness, and cuteness. most of the people speak italian. the coffee and pannini are OH! SO SO GOOD!!! the service is excellent. there is no rush. This is a truly morning/lunch relaxing place. I will continue to angle my walks toward via quadronno all the time. Pros: cuteness, food, italia!!!! more
