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

Our entire party enjoyed a tasty dinner with good service (thanks to Kim) on a busy Saturday night at the Smithtown spot. We ordered: calamari, mushroom and asparagus salad, chicken sorrentino, steak and a chef's special of freshly grilled tuna fettuccine. Everything was delicious, the family style portions enormous, and a great time had by all.

Staff and drinks always the best! Food is 90% great, sometimes we get a meal that's not up to par. We frequent this location 2-3x a month

When you walk into Butera's your not sure what to expect. The atmosphere is kind of like a home style restaurant but the menu is most definitely white linen. Wonderful apps start your dinner, and some like the Lifeguard Calamari are big enough to be a meal. The entrees' are many and varied, with quite a few interesting specials every... More

This is our family's restaurant of choice. We're there at least once a month. The food is consistently excellent, with nice portions at a reasonable price. Favorite dishes are the chicken marsala, pasta primavera, penne eggplant, and chicken parmagiana. The complimentary garlic knots are always a treat. The wait staff and management are uniformly friendly, attentive and efficient. One minor... More
