Active and bustling, in the "Trattoria Style", this Woodbury location of Butera's offers quality food at a great value. Known for their generous portions of pasta entrees, grilled fare, and fresh fish, Butera's has established a fine reputation as a neighborhood place where guests often see people they know.

It is owned and operated by Martin Butera, his wife Laurie, Martin's brother Gary Butera, and partner and chef Nick Zografos. The large open room is tastefully decorated with a traditional and contemporary mix, with rich dark woodwork and stone treatments, granite table tops, a wood and granite bar, fieldstone and hardwood floors, stone fireplace, exposed wine racks and a Tiffany style fixture at the entrance. Fresh flowers complete the handsome decor.

In addition to their extensive menu you can select from the creative specials like Grilled Filet of Halibut with Prince Edward Island Mussels on a citrus rosemary butternut squash risotto.

My new go to as the location is between myself and some friends so it works great. Was there last week as well. Food was really good and the staff was awesome as well. We sat indoors but outdoor seating was very well done as well. Buteras is a home run!

Buteras is our favorite restaurant. We come here for birthdays and anniversaries. The food is amazing every time. The linguine in white clam sauce is to die for!

I had enough to bring home half and enjoy the rest for dinner. All I had to do was add a small salad. My dining parnter had a special salad and she finished it. We have both dined here before, but each chose something new. Never disappointed.

Prior to Covid modifications to the tables, there had been a noise issue ; however, now the inside environment is totally comfortable, both in space and sound. Server, Mike, was very attentive but not overbearing. Food is always good.

The server was rude when we realized one order was our mistake. She preceded to show us the menu. Offered to pay but she was cold and abrupt.

The menu has changed to be a lot smaller. Some of the old favorites are no longer an option but other than that it was and is consistently good.

Quiet afternoon late lunch. Our meals were delicious! Service was prompt and helpful. Safe, clean restaurant with outdoor seating. Our shrimp salad and grilled salmon were excellent and generous. We saved room for dessert and the apple crisp was very good, served with ice cream.

The food never disappoints at all of the Butera locations. The chicken meatballs are fabulous. The garlic knots and humus also delicious. The place could use a facelift though getting kind of worn looking . Definitely will return and highly recommend.

Expected better quality and more quantity. Staff was pleasant and courteous except for the girl at the front desk; who went on a rant about the open table rules after we asked for a table outside. There are much better brunches and values in the area like Rustic Root next door. $13 brunch Bloody Mary came in a white wine glass. Really?

Good size portions. Friendly attentive service. Dining room is set up for socially distanced dining. Food is consistently good visit to visit. The warm goat cheese salad is one of our favorites. Interesting twists on standard Italian fare.
