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.

Buteras is a little bit better than average when it comes to food. But a recent visit for dinner was horrid when it came to timely service. It took the restaurant just about three hours to serve a salad and entree. Constant apologies for the delayed service did not make the wait any quicker. For the record, the restaurant was... More

This was a very disappointing birthday dinner. The complimentary hummus was garlicky and very good. The bread basket was full of assorted and really good bread and rolls. The server was also very sweet and friendly. Then came the main course. Wow. For over 50 years I've enjoyed veal. Always pounded thin and cooked through. Not the veal Marsala here!... More

Made last minute reservations for 5:30 for 4. Place was empty when we got there. We were given a table in the corner which was nice. Only round tables had table cloths, thought they all should have had them. It got crowded as the night went on and felt we were being hurried to make room. Food was ok. I... More

One of our favorite "go to" Italian restaurants. The food is always good and the specials are often over the top. Good for the two of us, the whole family and even take out. If you join their club you get points which add up for $ off meals after awhile. Very good value for the moderate price and large... More

Went for a family members birthday......waiter was top notch....calamari appetizer was very good, baked clams were terrible, I understand small clams but breadcrumbs were like sand...no olive oil or clam juice at all, extremely dry, others said eggplant was good, stuffed mushrooms good but unremarkable. We ordered 2 salads which were good gorgonzola and a caesar salad. All family style... More

I cannot say enough about the wonderful food and hospitality of Butera’s restaurant. My husband moved to Florida about 10 years ago, however we often visit NY several times a year to see family and friends. Butera’s Restaurant is ALWAYS part of our itinerary. My husband starts perusing the menu online weeks before we get there – which is hilarious!... More
