“Very Good”
Reviewed 28 June 2012

My husband & I recently went to Butera's for lunch. I had the Penne Chicken Meatball Marinara, which for $9 was a steal. The serving was plentiful and very, very good. My husband had the Crispy Calamari Caesar Salad, which was also very large and tasty. The wait staff was attentive, and the best way I can describe the inside of the restaurant is very inviting. I can't wait to go back and try the dinner menu!

“Great for a group, or just for 2!”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

This wonderful Italian restaurant just celebrated its first anniversary in Sayville, and a welcome addition it is. The portions are family style, and they mean it. It is a wonderful place for a family or friends gathering as portions can be shared. It is the most economical place for parties of this sort. The value is superb! If you choose, you can get an individual portion that will also serve at least 2 people. The food is delicious and the menu has a huge variety. We usually start with a huge, fresh salad and some fried calamari. I love the rigatoni with chicken and spinach, but the whole wheat penne primavera primavera is a big hit with the vegetarian members of my family. The staff is helpful. Reservations are suggested. You will be pleased you came, as will your guests!

“Great Family Style Place! Must treat yourself!”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

Located at the corner of Collins and Main, Butera's is a new addition to Sayville's dining choices. It's been here for over two years and improves as time goes on.

Family Style menu with family style portions. Go Big or Go Home!

I've dined here with a group of 16 and as a couple. I have ordered out and had Butera's cater for a small New Years Eve party. Each experience was better than the last.

There is a Butera's in Smithtown, but the menu is slightly different. I've enjoyed dining a both locations and highly recommend them.

I suggest reservations, the place fills in quickly almost every night of the week.

I have also ordered a tray of lasagna to take out as I headed to a friend's house. Big hit.
