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.

    Excellent overall experience as always. We went last Sunday to celebrate our 53rd anniversary and they were celebrating their fifth. So much fun! If ricotta gnocchi is on the menu, be sure and order that. Like little soft pillows of love.

    The food was solid but not particularly spectacular. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and it was his birthday so that's what matters. Our server was in training and she was fantastic. I hope she really thrives in this environment. It is unfortunate that even though she handled our meal from beginning to end she will not receive any of the tip. We sat in the "lounge" and it felt more like we were at a hightop table squeezed into the entry of the restaurant. The table was also way too small for a family style dining experience. Overall I would say this is a great place to take that picky relative that wants to go somewhere fancy. The food is prepared well and it seems like a place that will provide a consistent experience.

    Good drinks. High Praise cocktail outstanding. Housemade cheese, all over the top. Pasta centerpiece of menu - can’t go wrong. Server attentive and knowledgeable. Wine list has a range of price with good choices at reasonable cost. Parking can be an issue. The lot is small and street fills up. Benches are comfy but chairs are hard. Noise level just right for conversation without the place seeming dead. Looking forward to next visit.

    Perfect place for my birthday/NYE dinner. They had a Photo Booth set up which was a fun addition to an awesome meal. Ricotta appetizer was amazing. All dishes we ordered were exceptional. We did it family style so everyone could try everything. Doctor disco cocktail was delicious. Will definitely go again and again!

    Outstanding food, ambience and service! Went to Intero for the first time on NYE and had an amazing dinner. Ordered the sweet potatoes, bolognese, cappelletti with smoked snapper and the arrabiata pizza! All dishes were hands down 5/5! The food was extremely flavorful and fresh. You can tell there was a lot of thought put into each unique dish with the different flavor profiles. Our waitress was excellent and recommended we save room for dessert. Of course we did just that and ordered the brown butter cake which was one of the best cakes we've ever had! I can't wait to go back to Intero again! It's definitely my top go to Italian restaurant in Austin!

    Always good service. Food is well prepared. The Arrabiata pizza could have been a bit more spicy. Expected that from the name. Spouse loved their bucatini dish. Friends loved the risotto. It truly was delicious, definitely sharing portion. Our go to restaurant for special meetups and occasions. Doesn’t disappoint.
