    We totally enjoy visiting Butera's in Bayshore. We've been there numerous times and are always treated like a VIP. The menu is not the same old, run-of-the-mill fare but a very nice selection of well thought out dishes. Our server, Tara, is the nicest! She is very attentive, efficient and caring! Thanks again Tara!

    Excellent Food from the Apps to Dessert!! Portions worth the price. Somewhat noisy, but don’t let that deter you… most busy restaurants are. Our waitress Claire was excellent & so was her “back up team”. This is my second year coming with family to celebrate my birthday, & I’ll be back again!! Do NOT try to go without reservations. Bon appetite!!!!

    This was our 2nd visit to Butera’s and boy we weren’t disappointed. The food is always delicious and their winter specials were exceptional, especially little neck clams with shishito peppers, sweet potatoes and bacon. We are already planning our next visit.

    Went with a few friends, and we had drinks, the muscle appetizer, which was excellent, the bread was very tasty, and our entrées were delicious. The chef came out to speak with us, which we loved the server had excellent suggestions, and was very patient.

    The penne a la vodka with shrimp and chicken was a large portion, reasonable and pretty good but a bit overly creamy…..it didn’t have enough of a tomato flavor.

    This was a Thursday when we went and they had music. A man playing a guitar. He was awesome. Our waitress Nancy was attentive and very accommodating when I requested to modify my order and super sweet and friendly. The young man host Nick was so sweet he held the door for us coming in and leaving. Nice touch. Our drinks were yummy and our food was delicious as always. The owner Nick came Over to check on how we were doing which was really nice. Will go back here again and again

    We stopped by for a dinner on our way back from Bayard Arboretum and what a great discovery. Our server, Nancy, who has been working there for over 20 years, was super nice, attentive and knowledgeable. She knew all the dishes and based on our preferences she recommended perfect dishes, Rigatoni Ragu and Seafood linguine. The food was super fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back and definitely back in Saturday and ask for Nancy. Thank you Butera for the great food and wonderful experience.
