    We had a most enjoyable evening at Butera's the other night. Ashley, our wait staff was exceptional and made the evening even more enjoyable. I am celiac and gluten-free and had no problem with the menu. Would recommend this establishment to anyone and would definitely return. Thank you.

    Butera’s provides a delicious meal in a welcoming environment. The service is excellent. The food is always delicious and consistently prepared. Chicken Piccata, double pork chop, warm mushroom and asparagus salad are all winners. We have never had a bad meal! Try it! You will like it!

    We had a great experience at Butera’s. It was nice and quiet, so it was the perfect place to eat with our kids. The food was delicious, and we enjoyed the drinks. The staff was also great, and they were able to accommodate us when we were early for our reservation.

    Excellent from the time we walked in the door. The restaurant manager greeted us so nicely. Loved the fact that there was country music playing!!! Made my dining experience so much better I do love Italian music playing however, that gets boring and makes for a boring atmosphere.. it made me want to sit at the bar a little longer and have another drink instead of running to our table. The food and drinks were delish! The bartender and wait staff were amazing!!!

    The food was ok, this was my second visit because the first was some EXCELLENT food and I wanted to bring friends to try it and I was a little disappointed. Different chef? I don’t know. Also our waitress was a little absent minded, forgetting to bring drinks. Lengthy time between apps finished and main course where we saw no sign of her to see if we were ready for the next course or another round of drinks. Maybe it was just an off night for this place. I might try once more because that first trip was so damn good I need a tie breaker now.

    Food was excellent. The best pork chop around! Home made ricotta is always awesome. Service was very good also. Way too noisy though. The stark decor doesn’t help with the sound bouncing off the walls, ceiling and floor.

    Always one of our favorites! The Shrimp Limoncello and Rainbow cheesecake were stand out courses, delicious. Butera's also has a great Bar selection with interesting cocktails and many choices of Beer and Wine. Even on a Wednesday night, the restaurant was busy, but the service was excellent.

    Well it fails in comparison to the original in Massapequa but good value for sure. I still don't understand why you can't order Rigatoni Chicken AND Shrimp. That was my favorite dish in Massapequa. The Bayshore location is a bit casual which is fine but dinner should really require more than a tee shirt but that doesn't bother me much. I go with the flow and will for sure return which I have been doing for over 30 years. best, John Costidis

    The food, service and ambiance at Butera's of Bayshore was excellent! However, there are two big, glaring problems. Limited parking (which is street parking and a municipal lot next to Butera's) and lack of Security. Both me and my date were startled and confronted at our cars for food and money by individuals in the parking lot after parking and again when leaving Butera's and proceeding to our cars. I mentioned this to the hostess when we arrived and she shrugged it off as a known problem and no apology or solution. Unless these are addressed, especially the lack of Security, I would be hesitant to recommend Butera's of Bayshore.

    We came to Butera’s BayShore for my son’s birthday dinner. We have been to the other locations and we always have a great experience. This time we decided on BayShore and we’re so happy we did. The decor is beautiful and the service and food was amazing! The chef came out twice which was impressive. We will def be coming back!!

    The only thing I would change is bigger tables for four... you have to shuffle plates bread etc around when the courses come out because they are too small other than that everything else is great. Been there several times and always consistently good.
