A word from Butera's Restaurant of Woodbury
Active and bustling, in the "Trattoria Style", this Woodbury location of Butera's offers quality food at a great value. Known for their generous portions of pasta entrees, grilled fare, and fresh fish, Butera's has established a fine reputation as a neighborhood place where guests often see people they know.

It is owned and operated by Martin Butera, his wife Laurie, Martin's brother Gary Butera, and partner and chef Nick Zografos. The large open room is tastefully decorated with a traditional and contemporary mix, with rich dark woodwork and stone treatments, granite table tops, a wood and granite bar, fieldstone and hardwood floors, stone fireplace, exposed wine racks and a Tiffany style fixture at the entrance. Fresh flowers complete the handsome decor.

In addition to their extensive menu you can select from the creative specials like Grilled Filet of Halibut with Prince Edward Island Mussels on a citrus rosemary butternut squash risotto.

  • "We enjoy Butera's and try for a table in the corner to help keep the noise down. The pastas are great and we love to share."

  • "This restaurant does not honor their reservations and they never tell you that would probably have to wait. They accept walk-ins and if the walk-ins sit for long periods of time (as they did) -- well after they have eaten and received their check, they will not tell the people that they have others waiting to be seated. The food is good but not THAT GOOD that it is worth waiting an extra 45 minutes to 1 hour WITH A RESERVATION! I would NEVER RETURN. Not worth it!"

  • "We are always pleased with the food and service at Butera's. Can be a little noisy but not uncomfortable. Food is always plentiful and consistently good!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Noise level from our table (in back corner) was too loud. Even though we had made a reservation we were told we would have to wait 25 if we wanted another table. More casual than we expected. No tableclothes, etc. Food was very good as was service."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I highly recommend Butera's for casual dining. The food and service are consistently very good and I've never been disappointed. The prices are a bit high but, overall, still a good value based upon the quality and service. I'd give the ambiance another star if the tables were a little further apart. This location is a little small and the seating is tight. That shouldn't be a reason to pass up this restaurant. Even on a crowed Saturday night, the noise level was moderate and carrying on a conversation with our dinner companions was not difficult."

  • "All the dishes we ordered were very good. Chicken Milanese, Seafood pasta, Veal linguini, salads, etc. Portion sizes are large also. Always crowded, great neighborhood place."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I always know that I will have a very good dinner and again, I was not disappointed. Though it was Valentine's Day we were seated on time. That may have been because we had an early reservation. When we left there were many waiting for tables. I have my favorites, but tonight tried a new item and it was great. The portions are quite large. It is easy to take home half for the next evening's dinner."

  • "Good Food, especially shrimp-chicken pasta dish. Good service, friendly and fun. Good Casual atmosphere. Called me to confirm reservation: Professional."

  • "The food was excellent at Butera's of Woodbury, only if the waitresses and busseres were better trained. There was an error when we paid the bill, that was in the waitresses favor as a large ( $130.00 tip ) on a bill of $200.00. We realized when we got home that the other couple in our party over paid. I call Butera's and spoke to the manager on duty Marissa and let me tell you that is excellent at what she does. In short time Marissa worked everything out and our overpayment was put aside and waiting for us to pick it up. My probelm is with the waitress who either knew there was an error and didn't bring it to our attention or thought it was an above excellent tip and did't come over to the table and thank us."

  • "We eat there a lot because it's a good "middle meeting" location. The food is consistently good, but the service varies. Last night was a quiet night (snow) so our waitress should have been attentive, but no menus until she came to ask for our order! It was early, 7pm, and they were out of the "soup of the day". And at dessert they were out of "Tartuffo"! Waitress never asked how everything was and gave us our check, but left it there till another waitress picked it up and brought it back! The waitress was busy talking in the back! Butera is lucky to have such good food, because their waitstaff doesn't equal the food."

  • "The food is consistently good and is prepared as we request. The servers are friendly, efficient and attentive. The restaurant is a little on the noisy side but bearable. I wish Butera's would be eligible for pints."

  • "Love this restaurant. The only downside, with a reservation we still waited 20 minutes for a table."

  • "We often go here for celebrations. The food is always good, the specials are usually amazing, service is fantastic, and the resturant has great ambiance! Loved the seafood over lentil risotto on Saturday night. Was cooked perfectly, and it was so good."

  • "The restaurant had numerous chicken dishes. It could have used a few more meat selections"
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Nice Italian menu, creative menu with all the reliable staples. Service is efficient, but place can get loud when crowded as they do cater to families, and some of the crowd may forget how to tell their kids to use their "Library voice""
    Dined on 12/15/2013
  • "Not our first time here but probably won't come back. Food is mediocre and noise level is deafening. Service could be polished."
    Dined on 12/15/2013
  • "You always know what you will get at Buteras. Excellent food, portions too big for any human being (you can share entrees at no extra charge or order a half-order), and a very loud atmosphere. The service is always friendly and, now that they take reservations, it is a place worth frequenting."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "They are always consistently good. Large portions. You will wait even with a reservation."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Large menu gives you a lot to choose from. I had talapia which I felt was a small portion. However everyone else had various pasta dishes and the potions were large and good. Salads were a nice size and could be shared. We would go again."

  • "Loved it. Had a great time. Waitress was wonderful."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "We walked in, there were people standing everywhere, waiting to get in, the noise level was terrible. I was ready to turn around, worked my way through the crowd to tell them I was here for my reservation. Went to the bar had a drink, weird prices for the drinks, 1 was $11.04, 2 were $9.21 and 1 must have been from Walmart, it was $11.97 and no they did not include tax, 4 drinks $41.43 +3.57 for tax. The Service was very very good, The food was good, not exceptional, it was very noisy. The best part of the whole meal was the bread."

  • "Butera's is my favorite restaurant. Sometimes we are there twice on the weekend. The staff if always so friendly and The food is always delicious."

  • "Noise level was so high as to kill the entire dining experience."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "Buttera's is always excellent with huge portions. Easy to share a main dish and salad. Well trained staff and super chef! It is consistent and I've had a disappointing dish."
