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.

  • "Have been here for weekend dinner 3 times this summer. The menu is extensive. Seafood lasagna is superb, as is linguini with red clam sauce. The warm scallop salad or chicken Gorgonzola are delicious every time. Wine and $5 beer specials, too. Looking forward to next meal there."

  • "We arrived to find out table waiting...nice! Our waiter was young but eager to. The glasses of wine were plentiful which is nice to see for a change. The baked clams were mostly bread crumbs and sadly made it hard to find the clams hidden inside, but tasty. I shared the gorgonzola salad with a friend, large and flavorful. She and I each had a "special" as our entree. We chose the "zucchini pasta" with crumbled chicken sausage, cannot say enough how delicious it was. I hope it remains on their menu. My husband had the linguini with seafood and the last chose fish filet oreganotta. We shared desserts. My husband and I the almond cake and ice cream, yummy. And they shared the apple pie with ice cream. Great coffee too. Go!! $$$"

  • "Butera's always deliveries great food; we have never had a bad meal at any location. Portion size is also huge and each person took home something. The shrimp limoncello app was very tasty and everyone was pleased with the pizzette, the fish, and the pasta dishes. We were too full for dessert. Service is fine with mostly college aged servers. The space is a bit small and dark (though quaint) and we miss some of there larger spaces from years past. The selection, quality and quantity are off the charts. We will definitely return again."

  • "Haven't been there in a while. Ordered the Rigatoni with Chicken and Spinach. The chicken was burned and the burnt flavor permeated the dish. What a disappointment."

  • "A group of 12 of us came in Wednesday, July 2 to celebrate one of our co-workers moving on to a new job. The restaurant allowed us to fax over our order, which saved tons of time. When we arrived, our meals were served within 5 minutes and were delicious as always."

  • "I eat here all the time, the food is excellent. Only negative comment is if you sit outside the service is much slower. We needed salt and pepper, which was not on the table and extra plates to share. Both times we asked but it too too long and we couldn't wait any longer so we ate our food and it was finished by the time she got back to us on both requests ."

  • "The food and portions are excellent at this lovely bistro style Italian eatery. We were a party of four-we started our meal with the pizza of the day, chicken meatballs with mozzarella and ricotta cheese, one pizza was more than enough for us. All the entrees served were excellent. The only negative about Butera's is that it is loud--this is not the place for an intimate dinner. We were seated at a square table and we had to talk loudly for the person sitting across from us to hear. "

  • "It's rare when a Suffolk County restaurant is better than a Nassau County one, but this is the case here. The Woodbury location is smaller, more cafeteria like, and not as classy as the Smithtown location. I was a bit disappointed."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
