Diner Reviews
  • "We came to Butera's to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. I had eaten at Butera's several times before, and was familiar with the restaurant and food quality. We were a party of 10 - as soon as we arrived, we were seated at our table. The service and food were great - huge portions, with most family members taking home leftovers. However, the only problem was the noise level - both of my parents have hearing issues, and they were unable to hear much of the conversation at the table. No complaints about the food - everyone enjoyed their dishes."

  • "A College gave me a very generous gift card for helping her with something at work. I work directly across the street (Coldwell Banker R.E.Agent). We came for our Anniversary dinner on July 16 and found the food to be so excellent as well as the service."

  • "My gorgeous & super sexy Wifey had heard Butera's was a great place to eat at so we ventured there for the very 1st time for yet another wonderful dinner date night. Well upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by a very friendly girl & once seated our waitress was even more polite and gracious. We were quite pleased with the comfortable atmosphere and even more pleased with the wonderful food that we both ate! From the Stuffed Mushrooms & the Shrimp Limoncello apps we began with to our main courses we were never let down one iota. My ravishingly stunning Wifey chose the Chicken Marsala and I the Veal Marsala, WOW, the absolute Best Boldest and Scrumptious Marsala sauce we'd ever tasted! Kudos to Butera's in Smithtown we will be back!"

  • "Four of us dined her on a Saturday night and all of us loved our appetizers and entrees! You can order family style or individual plates. Only strange thing -- only chicken meatballs. Seemed unusual for an Italian restaurant. They said it was "more healthy." We certainly didn't order food dripping with melted cheese because we wanted to be healthy! Definitely would've loved to have traditional meatballs."

  • "Quick and attentive service. A well-executed veal parm with a generous portion. The NY Strip was slightly well for a true medium, but very delicious. We'll be back"

  • "Great food and service. We enjoyed half of my wife's entree as dinner the next night because the portion was so large. The pan-baked lasagna was excellent and we couldn't finish the individual salad which we shared. This restaurant is definitely a neighborhood gem."

  • "Along with three other couples, my husband and I had my 48th birthday at this restaurant. We specifically asked for round table and were seated in a quaint nook of the restaurant. Our server was Rob, who couldn't do more for us. Everybody was wonderful. Frank, the manager was terrific too, making sure we had a round table."

  • "Came in with 7 women for dinner. We had been there once before & the food was great again. We had one compliant- we asked repeatedly for more bread & water. Bread never came & we had to go to bar to get more water. Our server, a young guy, was very nice and the food order was perfect and he was helpful with the menu. Excellent food!"

  • "to noisy at your restaurant for a nice quiet dinner..We had to have a loud conversation at our table to overcome all the other tables...It would seem you should consider less tables or a type of surrounding that would absorb some of the noise..."

  • "The food and services were as always - amazing. We started with the fried calamari and the roasted White Bean and corn soup - both were great and plentiful. for dinner, my wife got the Mushroom and Asparagus Salad and a side order of the Turkey Meatballs (which are the absolute best we have every eaten, my daughter, mom and I split a order of Rigatoni Chicken Meatball (Turkey Meatballs of course) and Sausage - family style and yes we had enough left over to bring home a doggie bag (which the dog will not be getting any of). Desert was very good as well - Carrot cake, cannoli and a Tartufo. One negative comment, the noise level was extremely loud, and at times hard to hold a conversation. Still a great local place to eat. "

  • "disappointed 50% of the dishes were disappointing Gorgon chicken tasted like mars capon (expected that blue cheese flavor) stuffed mushrooms flavor less put some of the marinara sauce which was very good on them to rescue mushrooms, The butera special which when I asked the waitress she said its very good" not" it was bland presentation was good I ve raved about this place to many before and have had several very nice dining experiences before will try again "

  • "Met a friend for a quick dinner that turned into a long chat. Service was excellent, the food was delicious, and no one rushed us out. We were actually the last people to leave and no one pushed us out the door which was very nice. Dinner was delicious and had enough to take home for lunch the next day. Will be going back again soon!"

  • "I meet friends here for lunch often, decided to try dinner during restaurant week. Our waiter was inattentive due to also working a large party, we sat with dirty dishes and empty water glasses for a long time. I generally do like it here, though. Great salads at lunchtime."

  • "This was my second trip to this restaurant and a first for my friends. We went for Restaurant Week and were not disappointed. Food is excellent, server was excellent. I think it is one of the nicer Italian restaurants around and I hope to be back there soon."

  • "Went to this restaurant for the first time on a Sunday night. Restaurant wasn't busy so we were seated immediately. There was only one waitress for our half of the restaurant which meant service was very slow. Our drink orders (just soda) came fairly quickly but the appetizers and the entrées took a while. However, the quality and quantity of the food made up for that. Dishes were well seasoned and portions were generous. I'll be back. After all, it's mostly about the food."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Excellent service, excellent drinks, very friendly atmosphere. The staff was exceptionally attentive without rushing us. Great Ossobuco, but served with IMITATION potatoes! I was shocked. Go for the Italian fare, I'd have to say, no potatoes there. Will try again when I'm in the mood for lasagna."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Went there for lunch. My lunch date had a salad with grilled chicken and liked it a lot. I had a chicken parm sandwich and it was very dry and tasteless. Our waitress took our order but did not deliver it nor check up on us. I had to ask for drink refills from the bus person and for another waitress to find ours to get the check."

  • "This is our go to local spot for Italian. They make the classics, like chicken parm and lasagna, but also some special dishes. I love the grilled chicken with fresh spinach and fresh mozzarella. The baked pasta dishes are also delicious. The portion sizes are large, so it is a good value. We always order individual dinners, never family style. Really reasonably priced wine list as well."

  • "I went with my in-laws, parents and husband. As always, the food was phenomenal. We went for the Smithtown Restaurant Week Prix Fixe menu and the selection was awesome. There was something for everyone and more. It was hard to choose off the list. I'll definitely be back."

  • "We've been to Butera's on numerous occasions and the food and service are always good. The noise level can be very loud sometimes when there is a group of 12 or more at a table ( Birthday party, engagement, anniversary...etc. ) That should be expected cause people are excited and the noise level always seems to rise. Overall, Butera's is worth the trip !"

  • "They seated us at a table close to the kitchen-it was not a very good spot-way to much traffic- I was expecting to have a nice romantic dinner with my husband and it was not that at all. I liked my dish which was a broccoli rabe and chicken sausage lasagna-my husband had a pasta dish with chicken meatballs the pasta was over cooked and the dish did not have enough sauce on it-very dry. Also I thought a lot of the staff were very unprofessional-they would be walking out of the kitchen chewing on food also when the busboy came to clean the table apparently he was eating something too-I also saw the hostess walking out of the kitchen eating yogurt."

  • "We waited 20 minutes past reservation time and the noise level was so loud you couldn't converse at all. The food was good but not anything special. Service was fine. I would not return to this restaurant. I do not recommend at all."

  • "Butera's is great because it has something for everyone. I was thinking of going to Casa Rustica or Villa Sorrento for my birthday dinner, but I thought their menus were both too expensive (my mom was treating) and more for foodies than someone who wants traditional Italian. Had it just been me and my husband, I would've gone elsewhere. That being said, our service was great, the appetizers were excellent and the dinner was good. Just good - I'm not going to say excellent. I like to cook myself so when I go out, I expect to be bowled over by the food. It was fine and we had a lovely birthday dinner with my mom, hubby, daughter and boyfriend and that's what really counts. Great place for group."

  • "We received a gift card from Christmas that we used. The food and service was really good. The restaurant was extremely loud and busy. It made it very difficult to talk to the other party at my table. Also, as the servers were serving they kept bumping into our chairs as there wasn't much room to move around comfortably."
