We celebrated our 29th anniversary accompanied by our best friends. The food, wine, and service were spectacular as always! Thank you!
Always a great meal here! Food and service were excellent. One of my favorite restaurants in Austin.
I’m lying about the five stars but in the current circumstances no restaurant deserves anything less because they have enough on their plate and certainly don’t need a crap review headline to add to their woes. Having said that, the food was underwhelming. Our lamb was the toughest piece of meat we’ve had in years and the spaghettini was average. If I could have been bothered I’d have sent the lamb back but I think it was a cut of meat that was beyond rescuing. Starters were pretty good and the chocolates we had with our dessert were incredible. Will we come back? Probably not but I do wish them well. It’s a tough business which is why restaurants have to make sure that what they serve is pretty darn good if they have any chance of long term survival in a city like Austin where the competition is so tough.
We ate outside for the first time at Intero. Very nice setup.
Food and service were excellent as always....do not forget to order some chocolates!
Food was delicious.
Great service especially during the pandemic. All of the food was amazing and love how a lot of the ingredients for the dishes were made in house
The food, service and ambience were impeccable at Intero! We were blown away by the delicious flavor bombs each dish offered, and were very well taken care of by our server, Quinn. We are excited to go back and taste more of the menu!
P.S. don’t miss out on the magical chocolates at the end of the meal. 10/10 delicious.
Great food and service drinks service took long...
This is my current favorite restaurant in Austin. Their food is lovely: the feel of lovingly home cooked, unfussy meal with the refinement of ingredients well chosen and elegantly put together. The service is friendly and attentive, and I love the option of spacious outdoor dining during these COVID times. And their deserts and homemake chocolate is a perfect treat, make sure to leave some space to enjoy!
Wonderful service and great food! Although a bit on the pricier end, we found the experience and food well worth it. The staff is warm and friendly and had great recommendations on the menu and the wine list. The risotto and the carpaccio were both must-haves.
Great food and great service.
Absolutely delicious ~ the wagyu beef risotto was incredible, as was the pork pasta - mmm!
Intero is a favorite however experience this time was so-so. I had made a reservation as always, and when I arrived the hostess started to escort me to the patio for outside seating. Given it was still 90 degrees, I really didn't want to spend my relaxing Sat dinner sitting on a hot patio...I hadn't expected outdoors or I would have dressed appropriately. When I asked if inside was possible, the hostess did find a table for us but told me we'd only have 90 minutes to complete dinner. Would have preferred if on the reservation it would have specified or asked if I was choosing outside dining.
Wagyu beef featured heavily on menu and entrees just didn't appeal as they often have in past. The ghnocci was pretty dry and just not enough interest in the overall dish to want to eat an entire entree of it. Overall dinner was fair/good...just overall not what I've come to hope for from the restaurant.
Amazing Italian cooking with some of the best chocolate deserts I've ever had. The atmosphere, food, and staff were all top-notch.
We have not been here in a while because of the pandemic (no reflection on the restaurant). Intero's COVID-19's protocol was excellent. Water bottles left on the table, servers in masks, spaced seating, they even have hand sanitizers on each table! On top of all of that the food was excellent!!! We are looking forward to going back soon. Pizza oven coming soon!
The delicious food and service were great. I highly recommend this place.
It was great. Our server was amazing. It was my birthday and my husband took me there. I can’t wait to return!
Great food, excellent service. Very good wine and food recommendations from waitress.
This was our first time here. We were very impressed with the food and service. We will go again!
The best. Such good Italian food in Austin. We go here time and time again! A local favorite
Omg. It was soooo good! I loved it!
The risotto was Devine!
The inside has a terrible ambience. Luckily there was an open table outside. They tried to seat us by an industrial fan and we requested a different outdoor table. The food was really average. My pasta didn’t have enough sauce on it. Overall, I can’t imagine coming back.
The food is really good taste and waiter is friendly.
What a find! Intero has been open for almost two years but we had never heard of it when we were researching best restaurants to eat inside during Covid19. Everyone in masks, socially distanced tables and a wonderful menu. We actually thought we both had one of the best meals we had ever had ANYWHERE!!! The chef gifted us a salad, as well as four truffles for dessert which they make in house. We will definitley be back very soon!, and look forward to eating outside on their patio when the heat leaves.
Amazing food and service. Can’t wait to go back!
The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. You can’t go wrong ordering anything on the menu. The carpaccio and the risotto are must haves.
The flavors are amazing!!
Always amazing! Love y’all!
Intero is back with their interesting and delicious dishes, cozy interior, and wonderful service. What I expected from prepandemic days. They delivered.
Intero is now in my top 3 places to eat in Austin. Exceptional food and excellent service.
Amazing food & service! I was blown away by everything we tried. It’s a great take on of modern Italian food.
Very kind and knowledgeable staff, our server Quinn was a delight, but other staff members attended to us as well. The menus changes due to availability, season, and the chefs whims. We ordered a tomato tart, and even though I’m not a huge tomato fan it was surprisingly delicious and the flakey tart pastry was perfect. Then a wagyu bucatini, my favorite dish of the evening. It’s rare to get a red sauce bolognese here and it was amazing, I wanted to take an order to go for a midnight snack lol. Our main was a seared tuna, a dish I’ve hade and made several times, and I was delightfully surprised that it was a little more cooked than I’m used to. It made for a perfect mix of cooked and raw fish, as there was plenty of dark pink quality raw tuna inside. I‘be never loved peppers but the thinly sliced sweet red peppers paired perfectly.
Our thoughtful hosts even brought us out two of the best desserts I’ve had here, a mocha ice cream parfait type dish and an incredible bread cake with whipped icing, caramel drizzle, and banana gelato I believe.
Not to mention the bartender Jordan made us refreshing and well balanced cocktails that for me really made the meal. Best food in town, yeah I said it. One million stars
Great service and even better food. Overall a great experience. Will be heading back again soon. Great for date or casual date too.
I had one of the best meals of my life here. Absolutely outstanding!
Intero is our new favorite restaurant! Will be back for sure! Everything we ate was incredible!
Incredible food, friendly service, and always a great time. One of the best restaurants in Austin!
Intero was a good restaurant pre-Covid-19 and is continuing to be one in the pandemic times. They followed all state and city regulations 100% and made the dining experience enjoyable and safe. The food was superb with a thoughtful wine list and bar service. Their pastas are great. We finished with a plate of the chocolate truffles which are something to look forward to after the meal.
Perfect in every way! Not too hot on the patio so that we could comfortably enjoy social distancing dinner.
Took our adult kids out for a fabulous night. We were so intrigued by the menu, so we ordered 6 entrees for five people. Every bite was impossibly delicious. The service was outstanding. We will be back. A lot.
