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

This is a "go to" place for is. The Happy Hour is a good deal and dinner has been consistently good. It does get really busy on Saturday nights.

We made a reservation and were promptly seated. Service was spot on. Appetizer of baked clams was delicious. Out mains were great as well. The only negative is that it is very, very loud in the restaurant. This would be a great place for a nice night out,

Nice Italian restaurant. Very good food and reminds me of mi Wife grandma's cooking. Penne a la Vodka is reach, creamy and really tasty. They have solid fish dishes and the atmosphere is great. Price is affordable. If you are in the mood for Italian in this part of the woods, this should be a solid option. Just.make sure you... More

Good food but huge portions - be prepared to either split a meal or have it wrapped up. Nice bar area with a good menu as well.

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
