The food was great! Service was good as well
There were six of us and five meals ordered (one was family style). The drinks, especially the martinis, were excellent. The food, while VERY tasty, didn't arrive at the same time. We had to ask for the fifth meal and the sides. That person graciously told us to start while our food was hot. Both preparations of the Basa were really good, as was the pasta with broccoli rabe and chicken meatballs. The chicken dish was huge (this was the dish delivered late) and barely touched b/c by this point she had eaten a lot of the salad (the special salad with burrata, figs and peaches, though a bit pricey, was a generous portion and delicious). The veal dish, however, was tough. IDK why our friend didn't request something else. Would we go back? Certainly...
Great food and service! Plenty of options to choose from.
We love the lunch menu! Great value and taste! Nice ambiance too.
Great food. Great service. Thank you Michael.
Atmosphere, food, service were all excellent. Will return often.
An excellent choice for good food, unpretentious service and a relaxed dining experience. The price point is very good as well being the food is served family style. I highly recommend Butera's of Sayville!
An evening out with my boyfriend. Delicious food and wonderful wait staff
Everything was excellent as always! The baked clams were delicious and the serving size was plentiful.
Friendly, prompt service. Delicious food.
My linguini was over cook, lasagna was blend, we had cappuccino was watery too much milk. Not coming back.
Buteras is a family staple in my home-- you cannot go wrong with any of their food. Staff goes above and beyond and always makes you feel welcome. My one comment is that it can get pretty loud so if you're trying to have a quiet dinner, maybe sit outside..
This is my second sit in visit and I just Love the service, ambiance, food and staff. Especially enjoyed meeting the manager who introduces himself at each table to Patrons. It was my birthday Celebration and I truly felt special....Great, Delicious Meal & Drink... Left feeling tipsy 😌 from Mango margerita, good that hubby drove 😀. If you haven't visited, please do so soon.
Awesome dining experience as always.
Food was great. Service was good. Love the veal chop.
Mother’s Day dinner. Had a great time.
Went to dinner on Mother’s Day. We had reservation at 3 and we were seated as soon as we got there. Appetizers were excellent so was dinner and dessert. Love this restaurant.
just thought it was more expensive then it should have been
Food was wonderful, service was lovely... nice big table distanced from others. Perfect Mother’s Day dinner. Still thinking about the risotto two days later! Family style serving worked out so well. We will be back!
There was a 15 minute wait on the day before mother's day. The service was excellent and all the dishes we ordered were heavenly. The kitchen is obviously staffed with chefs and not cooks because the food was presented perfectly and tasted delicious even though every table was full.
So nice to be back in a favorite restaurant. The owner and the staff were great at insuring a safe and welcoming dining experience. The food and portions in this family style Italian restaurant continue to be the best in the area. After a year of lockdown it felt like coming home to an old family friend. Make reservations because I would hate for you to miss the chance to enjoy this wonderful restaurant
Always a treat. Food is excellent, the wait staff is very friendly and the portions are unbelievable. Plenty of parking. Look forward to going back. Wish it were closer.
Price worth it
We live in Nassau county and always have lunch in Buteras when we visit our Aunt and uncle in Sayville. Great lunch menu. Great service. Owner is very friendly .
Delicious food and great service. One of our favorite places to go for dinner. I had the Eggplant Napoleon, which was wonderful, and my wife had the Rigatoni with Chicken and Spinach, her favorite. Looking forward to trying more menu options!
We celebrated our son’s 13th birthday. The food and service was excellent.
Our first time having dinner there. Was there for lunch before. Food is out of this world great. Service is great. Love this place. My new spot
Always good food. Quality consistent
As always the food was delicious. The asparagus and mushroom salad is a favorite. Large enough for 4 guests.
Everyone enjoyed their entrees. Glad to be back.
Had to wait for our table even though we had a reservation. Weber Mike was very friendly and accommodating. Food was just decent. Owner/manager visited table to welcome us and check on us. Weren’t offered dessert. I’ve previously been to Buteras in Merrill. This definitely did not meet my expectations
Service and food is always amazing, from the hostess to the bus boys I have never had a bad experience and have dined there many many times
We love this restaurant. Even with a slight hiccup in our dinner, will absolutely still return
Food was delicious. Had our waiter stopped by when we finished our drinks he would have sold 2 more but by the time he came back, dinner was done. They were busy however so wont hold it against him to much
Authentic Italian family style. Amazing dining experience . Great food,great service. On a occasion the patrons sitting at the bar can get loud.
The best freaking food and soooo much of it. Leftovers for days. GET THE SHRIMP LEMONCELLO AND THANK ME LATER.
Service was fast & very efficient. Food was delicious & we were able to get individual entrees, instead of family style, which made it even better!!
Food was phenomenal and service first rate. The staff was friendly and a great atmosphere. Looked like the owner was present and checking on customer satisfaction. Great experience
The menu was not as advertised. Your lead on said 'Brunch now served at Butera's with outdoor seating with heat lamps. You failed to say not at their Sayville restaurant. They do lunch only staring at 1300. Otherwise good food, price right and huge portions.
The food was super salty!!!
Great evening, place was social distance.
