A few years ago, we filed a review of Via Quadronno that basically outlined why you will love the sandwiches here, but pretty much hate the experience. It has historically been a very expensive, very uncomfortable place to eat. That, however, hasn’t stopped us from coming here out of necessity quite often, before or after we hit Central Park for various activities (roller skate dancing).
It seems that over time, Via Quadronno has gotten better. That, or I am just getting older and therefore more sympathetic to other cranky old people. One of our main complaints has always been the service – the people that worked here just always seemed angry that you wanted to eat their food. But those people seem to have been phased out in favor of more reasonable human beings that better handle the pressure of serving sandwiches to Europeans and crusty Upper East Siders. The last five or so times we have been by have been shockingly pleasant, even despite the crowds and cramped quarters.
The food at Via Quadronno has always been good, so nothing has changed on that front. It’s also stupid expensive, to the tune of lunch for two setting you back $50 no matter what. That said, when it comes to quality, you won’t find much that beats it on this side of Park Avenue. The panini are incredible, the pasta dishes are really good, and even simple stuff like vegetable soup or chilled asparagus salad are excellent. They also do a great cappuccino and have a little gelato stand in front. How Italian.
Ultimately, Via Quadronno should be on your list if you happen to be hitting the park or one of the nearby museums and need to eat some food. And if you don’t want to take your chances with the service or the crowds, just order to-go and eat outside somewhere nearby. Although we can’t guarantee that the people on the street will be any more pleasant.
