Visited restaurant with our family. Incredibly,since our last visit they eliminated the family style menu. Quality. And quantity was what made us return. No more For example two of us ordered a fettuccine dish with lobster and crab. We were served a bowl of macaroni with almost 0 fish for $23. This former gem of an eatery is tarnished. Service...

The best Italian eatery in Suffolk county. The service is great. Pleasant atmosphere, servings are big, and it is not extremely costly. The chicken lasagna is very good.

I like Buteras menu because there is a wide variety to chose from. It can get very busy there on the weekends and parking can be tough also during those times. It's is a nice relaxing atmosphere with good service.

We ordered an appetizer and our food at the same time, and told the waiter to just bring the app first and then whenever our food was ready to bring it out, we waited over an hour for our entree's to come out from the kitchen. The appetizer came out fast, and was good, but some of the entree's were... More

Large menu and a nice selection of wines. We have been to both the Woodbury and Smithtown locations and the food is consistantly good. If you want a nice quiet dinner for two though, this is not the place. At one visit they had a large group showing videos on a screen in a section that was open to the... More

You can always count on a good meal at Butera's. Be warned though they do have large servings. Their salads are large and fresh, their garlic knots are delicious and they serve a white bean puree with chopped tomatoes on the table with the bread which is delicious. The service is always good. The only bad thing is that it... More

I returned to LI for the first time in about 30 years, and had a reunion dinner with four old friends at Butera's. Between the great food and charming company, the evening could not have been better. Butera's white clam sauce is terrific, the wine list is extensive, and the service is both prompt and friendly. I'll try not to... More

Very good service at 5PM for an early dinner.I had mussels as my main course and my wife had veal. Both were very good. The cocktails were fine and desert was good.
