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.

Everything was excellent. However, with the rise of the Delta variant we would have felt more comfortable had the wait staff all wore masks and stayed further from the table when taking the order and checking up on us. For that reason, we cannot return until a change in your policy is announced. Thank you.

The outdoor seating was very appropriate. They were training a new server which worked out well they were very attentive.
The food Grilled Shrimp Calabrese w/Orzo Excellent!!!! Egg Plant Farm was very good and the portions were large.

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!

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.
