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.

We were there for my granddaughters birthday
She really likes gnocchi and has ordered it many times
in different restaurants. She received her meal and
It did not even resemble gnocchi We asked the waiter and
He said that it is ricotta gnocchi, it just seemed like a plate
of cheese in sauce. Not at all appetizing. Would not order this
again

Always a favorite eats location for us. Love eating at the bar if a res isn’t avail. The food is plentiful, tasteful, fresh and inventive - thanks to chef Martin and his team. It can get pretty loud on the main dining room. Outdoor tables for 4 are available weather permitting as well.

One off Long Islands best eatery’s and best values. Period!!!!

Our 2nd visit to your Bay Shore location. Bravo! Everything was fantastic. Can’t say enough about the experience. Huge, delicious portions.
Great bread and dipping oil. Very reasonable pricing. One request, if possible…. Don’t know if you are connected to the Sayville Butera’s, but you really MUST include their almond, Amaretto pound cake. It is simply to “die for”… That would give you a “SIX STAR” rating, for sure. Welcome to Bay Shore and continued success.

Entrees very good. Had the lobster fettucini. It was more about the taste of lobster broth. Don’t expect large chunks. Nevertheless it tasted very good. Prices are comparable with NYC restaurants. The salad was enough to split two ways. Seating is very casual.

The food was outstanding. The Thai calamari was the best ever. The garlic knots needed more garlic & Italian cheese like they were the first time we went. The waiter couldn’t have been any better or gracious
