Excellent food and service as always. Lunch has extensive choices and is very reasonable. Have visited Buterra’s in Woodbury and prefer the Sayville location. Manager is personable and visits each table to ensure everything was satisfactory. This personal touch is not found at every restaurant and very much appreciated.

Butera’s is a wonderful restaurant with absolutely delicious food in a wide variety for all tastes. Portions are large, but you can order smaller, individual portions. Butera’s staff is competent and responsive. Excellent restaurant!

My family was visiting from Texas and was looking for a good Italian spot. This place was phenomenal!! Everyone in my party enjoyed everything… from the bread, to the wine, to the AMAZING apps (try the stuffed mushrooms) to our main course! Thank you to our waitress for being super bubbly & knowledgable on the menu ( she said she had just started !) I will most certainly be back & have already been bragging to friends & family! Thank you Butera’s!!!

Every time I go I order a LI Iced tea drink. It always comes in a different size or shape glass. It needs to be consistent and in a regular soda glass like 99% places serve it. Also besides Paul coming over to say hello. The waitress only came by once so her tip reflected it. But I do like the place.

Did not get our salad before our dinner. It came to table with our meals. I was given the wrong meal. and they really didn’t care! Service was just ok, had to ask for plates, serving spoons, water, never came back to ask if we want more coffee. Not a great experience

Five stars! Absolutely! As always John and Bob and their staff did an outstanding job. Glenn is an outstanding bartender. You won’t go wrong making a reservation here. From the food and cocktails to the customers, Buteras of Sayville is consistently outstanding.

My husband and I enjoyed a truly memorable meal on our 53rd wedding anniversary. Everything about our experience was excellent, especially the food - all fresh and cooked to perfection, served hot. The portions are large, so be prepared to take some home!

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...
