For a fixed value of y, you mean?

y = 2;
quad(@(x) f(x, y), 0, pi);

Symbolically, leaving y unevaluated so you receive a function of y? You will
need to define x and y as a symbolic value then use the _symbolic_
integration routine INT.

syms x y
newf = f(x, y)
int(newf, x, 0, pi)

This assumes that your function is only using operations that are defined
for symbolic variables.
