Enjoyed a tasty meal with family recently at Smithtown's Butera. Yummy mussels were served with a delicious broth begging to be mopped up with their crusty bread. However, no serving utensil accompanied the dish. Not easy to use a fork to distribute the clams. "Oh my gosh" was heard after about 10 minutes and we were given the large servers... More

Buteras has consistently great food. The Prince Edward Island mussels appetizer is a great appetizer to share. The shrimp and veal dishes are always excellent. We have been going to Buteraa for years and it never disappoints. This was our first visit to the Smithtown location and other than it was a little noisy we enjoyed another great meal with... More

Visited this restaurant to celebrate a graduation. I had been there once before so I knew the food was good and was not disappointed. It was nice was they were able to take a reservation for a party of 11 which many of the local restaurants cannot. Cost can be a little on the high side but worth it for... More

I was introduced to this restaurant by friends of the owner and fell in love with their chicken meatballs. I have never had them anywhere else. The only problem is that sometimes they are a bit salty.

The linguini with white clam source is super delicious. I have gone to several times and each time we won't miss the family-size pasta. The server Nancy is great, btw.

I don't like giving bad or semi-bad reviews but this place just doesn't warrant the high reviews I've seen on TA. I don't know what type of Italian food these other people who reviewed this place on TA are used to eating.. but the food here was mediocre at best. We ate here this past weekend with some friends, we... More

We love coming here! The food is always great and service impeccable! Other than the fact that it is always crowded, you can always get a good drink at the bar first:)

We love this place! Excellent service and food! Never had a bad meal here and we've come for both lunch and dinner, several times. The wait staff is very accommodating and let you relax, without ever pressuring you to leave. Last time we were here for 3 hours, just enjoying our meal and talking! A very big selection of menu...

This is a great place for Italian food just off Main Street in Smithtown, NY this restaurant provides great food and extra large portions. Even their 1/2 portions are more than enough for 2 people. I had the Baked Clams for an appetizer, the clams were on the small side but delicious. For the main course I shared a Stuffed... More
