We love this restaurant! From the big welcome at the front desk right through dessert this place is a class act. Matt makes us feel so welcome. Service is always good and the food is wonderful. Tonight we ordered the Tuna, Rigatoni with short rib ragu and the eggplant entree. All were delicious and perfectly cooked. Our waitress Stephanie checked on us frequently and the owner even came over to make sure we were happy. The tables are spaced well so even though they were busy we were happy with the distance between us and the nearest people. We had a great experience and will be back soon.

My husband ordered the steak and said it was tough. He didn’t like the clams either because they had too much bread. The unfortunate thing about this experience is that the waitress dropped sauce from my pasta dish on my husband’s jeans. She apologized but that was it. My husband didn’t eat another bite. Very upsetting that no one came over and acknowledged what happened.

Food was great, had the delicious fresh ricotta app which is a favorite as well as the fried mozzarella and baked clams all prepared perfectly.
There were six of us and every entree was great. I had the veal and it was delicious. Martin, the owner/chef came to our table twice to check on us which was very nice.
Always a good meal when I eat there!

We've eaten at Butera's in Oakdale before; this was our first time in Bayshore. Somewhat different atmosphere, but same quality of service, friendliness and quality of food. Our meal was excellent, price reasonable and large portion enabled use to take food home.

I'm not from the area and was looking for a great place to eat. When looking at the restaurants rated 4.5 and above I found that most had disappointing reviews. When I reached Butera's , all were good, so we selected it..... We were not disappointed the server was friendly and knowledgeable, she knew all the dishes and had tasted them all. My partner asked if they could modify the alfredo and add shrimp, the quick answer was of course how many shrimp would you like. I had the chicken picatta style and it was the best I've had. Apple crisp desert was amazing. If you are in Bay Shore make sure that you visit this restaurant you won't be disappointed.

We went to dinner both to congratulate my mother on a promotion and my brother's bon voyage before he moved abroad. It was the perfect last family meal all together. It was a beautiful experience from start to finish. The food was the BEST. Fresh and cooked perfectly. The owner came out and introduced himself and talked to us for a bit which was lovely. Seating was quick, the table was beautiful. Service was amazing. We got water and bread as soon as we sat down. Waitress was wonderful, attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Busser's were even great. Everything was perfect. I recommend for every occasion and no occasion.
