We ordered an appetizer and the salmon. The avocado crostini appetizer was delicious, but the salmon came under cooked. When the waiter brought it back it was still under cooked in the middle. We returned it and ordered the chicken meatballs that were excellent. My sister got the tartufo for dessert and that was good but melted quickly. I ordered the cookie pie. It was more like cake and I think it had been over microwaved. It was rubbery.

My girlfriend and I went to Butera's for the first time for Valentine's Day. I had seen it many times and had been wanting to go for a while. I live in Smithtown and it's nice to know I have a quality restaurant right in my backyard. The service was great when we walked in although they were very busy. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was good and had a big enough portion for me to save some for lunch the next day. The wine was great and the dessert spectacular. Great date night.

We went there for Valentine's day for the first time and it was a great experience. The food was delicious with modern twists on classic Italian meals. The service was great and it was cute and cozy inside. The pinot noir was one of the best I've ever had. It's in a great location on main street in Smithtown and it should stay there for a long time.

Service was good but the food wasn’t impressive. My chicken Romano was chewy and my husband did not like the ragu at all. I’m not sure about our friends food but considering they had a lot left over and did not take it home, I’m going to assume they did not like it either. The deserts and the meatball pot appetizer were the best parts of the meal.

We were celebrating my parents anniversary and Butera’s was a great option. They were able to reserve a table in an alcove area of the restaurant and it was perfect. The food was delicious and our waitress was very attentive. I ordered the risotto special and loved the layers of flowers it had.

We were there on Friday night. Had a party of 8, celebrating a birthday. Nicole was our server. She was outstanding. Very accommodating and friendly. The food , every one of our dishes , was awesome.
We always look forward to dining at Buteras. Never disappointed

We went to Buteras in Smithtown on Saturday night. My shrimp had a strange taste (which my husband did not agree with when he tasted it- guess it was me!). We called the waitress over and explained this. Her (quick) reaction was to offer to either remake the dish or get me something else. She did not question my opinion at all. The replacement came out quickly (I did not want to re-try the shrimp!). The owner, Jimmy, came over to make sure everything worked out okay and apologized that I should have been inconvenienced. After we finished our meal, he gave us a round of after dinner drinks on the house. We really appreciated how this was handled. We highly recommend Buteras in Smithtown! great Italian food.

Excellent night overall. They were fairly busy for a Monday, which seemed apparent in the staggered service, but the server was exceptionally friendly and hit all the right notes. Food was almost perfect. Home runs on the calamari, the tuna app, the fresh mozzarella salad, and the Portuguese inspired seafood special... the baked clams were the ONLY unfortunate dish. Dry and sandy that night... could have been a fluke. Otherwise loved our experience and would go again.

The food was outstanding - we could tell just by looking at it that it was made with fresh, quality ingredients. My linguine shrimp with broccoli & tomatoes was delicious and the portion was huge - plenty let over for the next day. All the other guests at my table loved their food as well.
