Food is always delicious and great family time in a cozy setting
We had a great time at Butera's. Everything we ordered was great as well as the service. The chicken meatballs are a must, this is from a true Italian girl! We were a party of four and we all enjoyed our meals, not one complaint about that. The only complaint would be that the table was not spacious enough when our food was brought to us, it was very tight. That would be our only complaint.
My husband and I visited the restaurant before a show. The location was convenient. The wait staff was excellent and the atmosphere was very good. I had read many reviews so my husband opted for the lasagna with the chicken meatballs. It was good, not great. I had penne with chicken sausage and shrimp. This was also just good. We shared a salad and a dessert. Overall it was a decent dining experience and we may go back to give it another try.
We came on a weeknight because the restaurant is way too loud and crowded on weekends. The servers are more attentive on weeknights.
Food was not as good as my previous visits. Husband had eggplant and it was very hard. Two seafood dishes were ordered and we're very fishy smelling. Will not be returning.
Delicious food; the server was attentive, yet gave us the time we needed; it was a very pleasant experience!
Ambience was just right for catching up with old friends. The Thai calamari was a terrific choice in appetizer. The lamb shank special was the best I've had, and everyone else enjoyed their meal. Our server, Alex, was great.
Amazing ambiance, service and food!
Highly recommended for quality Italian food!
I thoroughly enjoyed our evening and quality dining experience.
It’s a nice place for a special occasion. However it is out-of-the-way for us at 30 miles.
If you like quality Italian food with quality wait service, I would recommend Butera’s for your special occasion.
Another excellent meal!
Excellent food. We have been here many times and the food is consistently good!
Our Waiter Matt was very pleasant and did a good job. He was very helpful with suggestions and helping us order.
The only down side was that we were seated by the side door exit. It was uncomfortable when people left or came in through that entrance. Also it was cold when the door opened.
I would definitely recommend this place, just ask not to be seated by the side entrance!
This has always been one of my favorite restaurants but I don’t think I will be coming back - my linguine with clams entree was tasteless and horribly presented (clams with black guts scattered on top and only 2 clams in shell) - broth was watery and it tasted boiled - you could make it better at home.
An enjoyable evening. The food and service were both excellent. The only complaint is that it is extremely loud. Your best bet is to request a table in the small room in the back of the restaurant nearest to the parking lot. The will help to reduce the noise to a comfortable level so you can enjoy your company.
Butera's of Smithtown is a wonderful place for dinner. Food is terrific and the drinks are even better. The atmosphere on a Saturday night is quite loud, so as long as you aren't looking for a quiet place, Butera's is definitely worth checking out.
Excellent food & service
The food was delicious.
Great food, nice decor.
Make sure to ask for Nicole for your service. Fabulous!
Great food, great service, what more can you ask for?
It was lunch celebration for my friend's birthday. The salads were delicious and could easily last for two meals.
The brownie dessert was like fudge with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream.
Service was very attentive and polite.
Noisy ...but that’s ok ....food was just average, nothing to rave about
enjoyed the evening with friends...service was very good - food was not as good as it was the few times we were there...slightly overpriced but I think that goes with the territory. The place was packed - we had reservations and only waited about 5 minutes for our table.
Ehhh! Not impressed. Ordered pasta dish with lobster and crab. It was bland. NO lobster to be found! Not a spec of it!
Excellent food and excellent service. Had a great meal
We love coming to Butera's. One of our favorite dishes are the chicken meatballs.... deelish!
Great food and service. Everyone was very nice! The place is a little loud but it’s a family environment. Highly recommended!
Always enjoy this place. The only criticism was the server. He didn’t pay enough attention to us. We rarely saw him. When he brought our food it wasn’t hot. It was barely warm.
Even so the food was good. I would still visit this place in the future.
My husband & I had a date night & the food, service & atmosphere made for a Perfect Date Night! We had a reservation and were seated right away. There was probably close to 15 people piling in after us. I hope they had reservations!
As always the food was great! The waitress was awesome, we have had her before, but not sure of her name.
Good quality italian fare. Great menu with plenty to chose from no matter what your taste. All of their locations have consistanlty provided an enjoyable dining experience.
Great food, excellent service, never rushed! ` Extremely generous portions!
Food was excellent. I had Chicken Parm and the others had shrimp Parm and Rigatoni with broccoli. We started with fried calamari which was cooked to perfection. Nice experience.
The food was delicious and staff were excellent! Really enjoyed my visit.
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.
Amazing food, great service, alittle too noisy
Excellent food and service. Seated exactly at reservation time. Highly recommend.
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.
Went there for Valentine’s Day with out 6 & 8 year old kids. Service was excellent. Food was great as always. Place was packed which means it’s good. Always a great time!
The food was superb and the service was excellent
