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.

They offer a good quality Italian food. I had a Chicken Sorrentino which was a dish I normally enjoy and this was excellent. My husband had a pasta dish with saussage in it which he enjoyed very much. The bread is fresh baked and also quite delicious. For desert we had some kind of Almond cake which also turned out...

We have our office Xmas party every year at Butera's! Frank always accommodates us and allows us to bring little gifts in advance to put around table. All the employees are great! We love to go during the week and sit at bar have dinner! Always a friendly crowd and good conversation! Try it you'll like it🍷🍝🌟

I've wanted to try this place many times, but they don't open until dinner time. The food is excellent as was the wait staff. It does get noisy though, with the large crowd, but I'd go back again. Best bet is to make a reservation.

Lovely atmosphere, excellent food, great service. Everything done right. Prices are reasonable too. The worst part about this place is having to leave when the meal is over.

This was a special event and we were a bit to crowded. Service was good in spite of the large crowd however the food lacked greatly. The Penne a la Vodka wasn't cooked enough and many plates went back full or only partially eaten. The vodka sauce definitely was missing something. I had steak that was not cooked to my... More

I've only eaten here once and that was for lunch. My experience was so good I'm sure I will return to try their dinner menu. The Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Chicken Meatballs was outstanding. The portion size was also enormous. The side salad was also large enough to be a complete meal. The Italian Cheeseburger was cooked as ordered... More
