Italian
Just as in Italy where the food is genuine and locally sourced, you'll find the same at Intero with farm-to-table Italian cuisine. At its core, the concept behind Italian cooking stems from necessity and gratitude for regionally available ingredients. Intero, translating to “whole’’ in Italian, embraces this concept utilizing local ingredients from their entirety, paired with traditional Italian techniques and cooking sensibilities. This naturally sustainable approach allows for innovative, yet familiar dishes that highlight the seasonal availability of what’s grown and raised in Texas.

Additionally, Intero provides an authentic nod to the sweet side of Italy offering specialty house-made artisan chocolates (including truffles, barks, and sipping chocolate) along with other traditional Italian desserts in classic, seasonal and unique flavors.

Enjoy various Amari, select wines and craft cocktails indoors or out, set in Intero's modern casual atmosphere.

We have been regulars @ Intero for years now, but refrained from going out due to Covid. Last night was our first night out and we were pleased as always. The owners greeted us with a welcoming return. Intero is @ the top of our list for quality/creativity in menu choice. The service is outstanding! Highly recommend as my wife and I have always considered ourselves as food critics.

Wonderful waiter, delicious food with flavors that are unexpected but not exaggerated. The greeting and seating with the Host was simple and welcoming. The outdoor tables were comfortable, shaded, and there were couple cute dogs with their families.

Food arrived at perfect times and the staff are clearly working together to give a smooth experience. The waiter even gave me a heads up when one dish would take longer to cook, which allowed us to have the other food brought out first.

Lastly, they have delicious and beautiful mocktails!

Innovative, beautifully presented food. Very few options for a vegetarian, although they offered a modified pasta or risotto. Small plates also excellent but again, few veg choices (the burrata was really good). We'll try the pizza another time.

Wow. So satisfying. Wood was our waiter and he did not miss a beat! He knew his cocktails and the details of the menu items! After his complete descriptions of the cocktails, we made our selections and enjoyed them very much!

For dinner, we allowed Wood to select our items from each section of the menu. The crudo and carpaccio were outstanding. The mulfadine and tortoline were super! We also had the zucchini and carrots, both were so flavorful. We had the fried pork and it was good, but paled next to the other dishes!

Bottom line, this chef makes food special. The flavors are so satisfying-- no dish is marginal or meh. I love not ordering and this is the perfect place to do it!

Always a wonderful experience at Intero. My friends from out of town loved it - the inventive flavors, the outdoor atmosphere, the small details that make this restaurant so special. Although the main plates are not vegetarian, they had no problem accommodating my vegetarian friend and created a delicious vegetarian risotto; my friend said it’s the best she’s had! One of my faves in Austin!

Intero is one of my favorite restaurants in Austin for personal and business dining. The food is amazing - most sourced locally, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Krystal, the co-owner, makes the artisans chocolate truffles and bark...these are to die for. Her husband, co-owner and chef makes dishes with complex flavors. Do yourself a favor and make this restaurant one of your first stops as we emerge from COVID quarantines.

All of the food was delicious with unique, but classic flavors, service was outstanding, all the hosts/hostesses were extremely accommodating (there was an AC leak over our table so they happily helped us move tables even though they were completely booked up). If Texas had Michelin star restaurants, this place would deserve one!

They put us in the corner when they were plenty of open tables. We battled with fruit flies and my drink was too sweet. Service was great, but they need to rethink the vibe.

Over the past year, we enjoyed eating Intero‘s food via takeout. But this past week, we decided to dine at the restaurant. Let’s just say it was thoroughly enjoyed. :)

The food was absolutely incredible - everyone loved the food but everyone had their own favorite! Great sign that Intero caters to all palettes. One of my favorite’s - the tilefish which was wrapped in swiss chard and served with squash. Delicious! And for desert, their exquisite truffles.

For those who are looking for a safe, comfortable, and relaxing dine-in experience, I highly recommend Intero! They placed sanitizer on each table, provided paper menus if desired over using the QR code, and spaced tables 6 feet apart.

Thank you, Intero, for making our first return to the restaurant one that was perfect!

Everything we had was amazing: the foccacia with ricotta and honey, the tortelli, the maldine with bolognese, the pork shoulder. I would say this is the best dining experience I've ever had in Austin (and I'm a native who has only lived here). Food was excellent, service was great and atmosphere matched the dining experience). ALSO I highly recommend the sipping chocolate—I will be dreaming about it until I get it again!

The food at Intero is almost too beautiful to eat - almost. This East Side gem was flavorful, cozy, and offered excellent dishes with service to match. Highly recommend. It’s a small window into an authentic European/Mediterranean experience in Austin.

This is our go-to finer dining place in Austin. Hadn't been since COVID but ventured for mother's day and had the patio to ourselves for the first hour (5pm reservation with young kiddo). Amazing attentive service and food that never disappoints. Always try their risotto and veggie dishes!

good gluten free options - owners and investors are gluten free, so there is a focus on it. As someone with Celiac it was a relief to feel like my dietary needs were seriously considered.
