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.

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.

Nice job with distancing- you can eat outside with heat lamps or inside with partitions. Great menu and food- get the meatball pot for app and loved the zucchini pasta dish- healthy but deelish. Fiancé had the Scallops Risotto that he loved. Worth trying.

Good food, quiet, wasn’t busy Sunday around 5pm when we went. We did eat inside & partitions/separation between tables was up to covid standards, they also offered outdoor seating for those not comfortable dining indoors. Our waitress disappeared a few times which seemed odd for how slow it was, but she was very pleasant so overall a good experience.

My wife and I were spending the night at Oheka Castle to celebrate her birthday and we decided to book a dinner reservation at Buteras in Woodbury.
We have been to both the Sayville and Bay Shore locations and have always had a great experience and the Woodbury location was no exception.
My wife and I split an entrée and appetizer and there was more than enough food for the both of us and it was delicious.
In typical Buteras fashion, the people were friendly, the drinks were strong and the food was spectacular.
We will be back, Thanks!
