Wonderful group lunch
Came to Butera's in Sayville to celebrate our Assistants for lunch. We had 8 in our party and all of our meals came as ordered. Large portions and each dish was considered delicious. We were seated, served and out the door within the requested hour. Perfect!

Prices reasonable for huge
Prices reasonable for huge portion sizes. Nice that you can order 1/2 portion but they charge 60% , not 50%.
Still the 1/2 size can feed at least 3 people.
The veal chop was outstanding and at $44 for 2, a real bargain. Last time here, had the shrimp parmigiana that was delicious.
Service was extremely slow this visit, waited about 45 mins for main course, waitress gave reason about timing, wait until we finished first course ( it was only a salad - by the way it was large and excellent as well)
Would definitely go back.

We loved it!
We chose Butera's for a late afternoon Mother's Day dinner. We were a party of 8 adults and one infant. The staff was great, very accomodating with friendly and efficient service. The family-style dishes were plentifull and everything we chose was absolutely delicious, especially the Grilled Salmon Medallions! Being a holiday, the dining room was full and the tables a bit too close together. Despite that, I will return and will definitely recommend Butera's of Sayville to friends.

Seven people, in our sixties or seventies, who knew each other from college days met for dinner on a Tuesday night. We were given a round table in a corner and that meant we were out of the mainstream and could hear each other even across the table. The waitress was so far above great........no matter what we asked she did her best to take good care of us. We ordered 3 'double' entrees and one single one and had plenty to take home. All meals were delicious! Desserts were delicious also.
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food for our party of five was delicious and the table server was very efficient. However, we were not able to finish the ample portions of food and requested that the leftovers be boxed for take home. Unfortunately the busboy neglected to box our lasagna meal, which we only half finished. Since we had several other take home boxes, we did not realize his error until we got home. Inasmuch as this lasagna dish is one of our favorite meals, we were extremely dissappointed since we were looking forward to a second enjoyable meal at home. Next time we intend to be sure our leftovers are boxed at our table, not in the kitchen out of sight. We must admit this error put a "damper" on our overall favorable dining experience.

I couldnt have picked a better place to take my Wife for our anniversary. The Food was excellent as always. The service was great, and the portions are, well we did take some home. I am now trying to make a date to go back with our friends.

First Time Visit!!!
This was our 1st time eating dinner at Butera's and we were wondering why we didn't discover it many years before. My wife and I were very impressed with the food, it's arrangement when placed on the table and just the whole eating experience. You've won us over and we'll be back many times to come!

Nice find in new location (for us)
We knew Butera's in Massapequa (loved it there), not so much in Seaford, this one is great.

Go to local restaurant
Buteras is always the restaurant we think of when looking for a consistently good meal to have with friends or just by ourselves. The food is reasonably priced and the service is always friendly and efficient. The portions are certainly plentiful as well even when not ordering family style.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food with good service
Butera's in Sayville is a special place for us.....ease of reservations online, great food , great family style portions available, and good service.....Locals know it well, so reservations are a must on weekends.....The menu is more than adequate. There is even a side room for family gatherings that offers some privacy.....my entire family enjoys going to Buteras, and we all highly recommend it!

Great Italian Food
Great Italian Food with a wide variety of dishes served family style or individual portions. The salads are easily split between 3-4 people and the individual portions are very generous. Our server explained the menu and was available to answer any questions we had. She was very friendly but unobtrusive. We were with friends we had not seen in a while and were there for several hours on a busy night and were not rushed at any time during our meal. This particular site in Sayville has changed hands many times and I believe this restaurant will be here for awhile.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
On our last visit we had superior service, the food was excellent and the wine was the best. Pleasant atmosphere and we look forward to going back to Butera's often. I would recommend a great place to dine for people of all ages and families!

The food was excellent. We
The food was excellent. We had four meals for eight people and included salad and an tomato & mozzarella appetizer. The linguini and white clam sauce was great as was the chicken franchisee, veal parmigiana and seaford lasagna. Everyone was very pleased with the meal and the service.

Great Food & Service
We originally made a reservation for two for a Saturday night, then increased the number of people to six just a couple of hours before we were scheduled to arrive. The hostess was very accommodating about the last minute change. We were seated as soon as we arrived. They sat us in a small room off the main dinning room, so we didn't get the full effect of the ambience, but it was nice just the same. The service was very good, the waitress was young but professional and experienced. She gave us great tips on what food to order. All the food was very good and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Excellent food, generous portions (family style). Had a reservation but had to wait a half hour, very crowded. My wife had been
there before, it was our friends' first visit and they thought the food was excellent.

Love the food at Butera's.
Love the food at Butera's. The service speed and attentiveness can be improved upon. Also, there are usually wait times even with a reservation. The food is so good though that it makes up for any flaws!

The service and food were outstanding. The noise levels were low and the Atmosphere was romantic. It had all the makings of a perfect first date romantic dinner.

8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, good place for a large group. Quite noisy not good for a romantic dinner. Food is very good as well as service, No wait with my reservation which was very nice. Almond and Amaretto cake was delish for dessert, still dreaming of it!
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
What a fantastic surprise
I tried to make this a romantic luncheon for a birthday. I had flowers delivered to the restaurant ahead of time and they were placed on the table at my reservation time. It was a great hit..just to see her face light up at the sight of the flowers with her name on it. The birthday dessert was another added surprise. everything was so perfect. I have to commend manager Jerry and our waitress Linda for an outstanding luncheon date. Since this was a special birthday, I did choose the right place.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM

what a wonderful evening
We celebrated a very special 25th Anniversary at Butera's. It was recommended to us by faithful patrons who have never had a bad meal or experience there. We made a reservation and let them know it was a special night for us. They went above and beyond anything we expected. They were friendly, helpful, and we watched all the waitresses and saw that they all were very attentive to their tables. It was a Tuesday night and very busy. But the food came out in a timely manner, it was huge servings, and very very enjoyable. We can't say enough about how nice they made our evening out. And we have already told many people to go there. Some are going this week!

Great Italian Food
A wonderful experience for a large Italian family. The restaurant was able to accommodate a large group of 12 with a baby very comfortably. Our server was helpful and knowledgeable, as well as attentive. The food was delicious. I would definitely return.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time here at Buteras and it was amazing. The food was amazing and our waitress was super nice and knowledgeable about the menu. It's about 15 minutes from home but I will make it one of my first places for going out to eat.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We haven't been to buteras in a while but are sorry we didn't go back sooner. We did have to wait a half hour for our 7:45 reservation but food was worth the wait.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu selection. Everything
Great menu selection. Everything our group ordered was excellent. Chicken meatballs were amazing. I like that even though it is family style you can order individual portions which were still very generous
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always we enjoyed our meal at Buteras. We celebrate family birthdays by going out to eat and we enjoy going to Buteras. There is a great selection of food for everybody's liking and the family style is great.

The food at Butera's is always
The food at Butera's is always very good. Had the special of day, a Sea Bass dish, There was a sufficient amount of food for at least 3-4 people. A great value. Best to go with more than 2 diners. Pasta dishes are always very good and the salads are excellent. Service is unconcerned. Most servers are young adults without much experience. Overall a very pleasant experience.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
for parties of 2 go for the 1/2 portion appetizers. plenty of food and it's delicious
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dined here several times and we have never been disapointed. I would recommend to everyone to come and enjoy.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Food!!! Huge portions! My family loves calamari and this is the only restaurant that all 4 of us get some calamari and there is LEFTOVER!!! Plus its one of the best calamari around! The baked clams were out of this world and I always love the goat cheese salad!!!

Best Anniversary Dinner Ever!
First off our waitress was impeccable! Everyone was so friendly and so helpful. I had a surprise set up for my wife, thanks to jerry the manager our I believe the owner everything went off perfectly. I can't praise this place enough, the food was amazing, me and my wife of five years were given complimentary glass of champagne. The food was delicious, big portions, be prepared too spend some money. Not cheap, but the service and ambience is worth it, this is definitely me and my wifes new place, and I'm telling everyone saviour it.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM

Butera's once again exceeds our expectations…even during very busy Restaurant Week. Food was outstanding, same with the service, highly recommend you visit this "hidden gem" in Sayville!

Work and Play
I finally made it to Butera's for a work luncheon. They were very accomodating with a large group and the waitress, Jessica, was awesome. Excellent food and great service. Had such a good experience, I took my family there for dinner the next week. The dinner food was great as was the service. I'll be back since it's just a short walk across Sayville.

This family style Rstaurant is not kidding when the say one entre is enough for two. Same with the apetizers. Great food and be sure to come hungry.

Warm Scallop Salad
I'm a huge fan of Butera's warm scallop salad. The scallops are always done just right. Don't you hate it when a restaurant leaves them cooking too long? Even when the restaurant is super busy, this dish is always a winner. Weekends are busy, which is why I booked through Open Table. No problem. No waiting. Thanks!
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not only is Buteras a fine eatery, but they take reservations! Many of Sayville's restaurants do not. The service is exceptional and the ambiance although loud, is appealing. And the pricing is affordable.
