A delicious Italian restaurant in an old Smithtown landmark

My cousin and I had an early dinner on a Wednesday. We had the dining room to ourselves ( we ate between 3:30-4:30) but there were folks enjoying the bar. We had a table overlooking Main Street. Our server was friendly and helpful with menu selections. I ordered a baked pasta dish ( not certain... read more

This is a busy fairly large upscale Old Fashioned Italian which is modern but holding on to its flavor roots. Its not one of the old school deco with carpets and drapes but try the house special calamari with hot peppers for a real WOW, Their veal and chicken dishes are uniformly good. If you make reservations and go off... More

Went for a large party, everything was fabulous. Lunch menu was pork chop, chicken or bacon wrapped shrimp; they accommodated me (veg) with a delicious eggplant parm which was huge. Garlic knots on the table were great; carafes of champagne punch on the table, cake was outstanding. Service was quick and polite, and it was not easy to serve maneuvering... More

The servings are big so bring an appetite or a doggy bag. A little loud acoustically but a family-friendly atmosphere in the dining room. The bar is definitely louder once it starts to fill up. but it's a nice spot as well.

The food is delicious and the servers couldn't be more helpful. Reently went with a large party and the waitress was very helpful in guiding us on how (family style or individual) and what to order.

I attended a luncheon with a few girlfriends at Butera's in Smithtown. We loved the entire experience. The waiter was great, attentive, on top of it. He had excellent suggestions about their famous "chicken" meatballs. Hey! I'm Italian! and they were GOOD! I had a delicious chicken/gorgonzola Panini, the meatballs with the marsala sauce. Oh so good. My friends enjoyed... More

Overflowing platters of delicious pastas, meat, seafood and vegetables arrived at our table. They were all steaming hot and delicious! For a little surprise order the chopped salad, it is worth trying, yummy. The staff is super friendly and the manager always seems to have a table for you, even when the restaurant is full! BRAVO!

What a great experience we had. Went out to dinner with girlfriends. Waitress was not only patient with 4 ladies who had no idea what to eat, since everything sounded great and the smells in the restaurant were amazing, but she was also friendly and fun. The food we ordered was more than what we expected. Deliecious. A must restaurant... More

Wonderful for lunch. Chicken sausage with Broccoli Rabe, grilled chicken and asparagus salad and chicken sorrentino are excellent. Nice atmosphere. Very noisy at dinner so we prefer this place for lunch. Good service and food.
