Description: Incontro: Italian for "encounter" With our cool Italian restaurant and bar, we've created a meeting place that draws people from near and far. There's always something going on here! Lunch, brunch, Italian a la carte, informal gatherings, live music, "after work", exhibitions and much more besides... And during the summer months, we have our very own piazza with comfortable seating from which to enjoy the sunshine. The family is at the very heart of the Italian way of life. We look forward to welcoming you to the Incontro family. It's important to us that you should feel welcome. We strive to ensure that everything we offer is of a high quality. We always aim to greet you with a smile, and to ensure that you want to come back again. La famiglia Incontro welcomes you to Gothia Towers' Italian oasis on Korsvagen!

“Ok lunsj place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

With the poor lunch choices fish pizza and chicken stew with different salads, we ended up with the buffet. Food was good but average, chicken booring but moist and tasty. This is an ok lunch place for eating when attending the next door Swedish Fair, but it is not a getaway for more intimate business discussions.

“Not the best Gothenburg has to offer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

My review doesn't come more up to date than this...I am currently sitting here right now. the reason I right my review is because I am on a business trip and find myself eating along!

Now, I am staying at the Gothia Towers attending a conference so i this will be my second visit to Incontro largely because I work late and not inclined to venture out in to Gothenburg. As I sit here, I am thinking this might have been a preferable choice!

As I get to compare two visits here I can say that their service level drops when they are busy - understandable, but noted in my part since I didn't get the bread and olives in night two I was given the first night.

Quite a nice ambience and I don't mind the dark lighting in here - I can sit quietly on my own and not feel inspicuous. and groups can enjoy themselves without being a spectacle.

The food is quite nice - I particulary enjoyed the asparagus salad. Though it was a big portion and I only ate a fraction of my pasta - rather a waste!

Now the actual reason for my review is the entertainment....none on the first night....thankfully! I'm sorry to say that both singers (man and a woman) are pretty terrible. I think the woman was trying to be funny, but I don't speak Swedish so I can't tell and no one laughed....but the pianist is playing something of a Who's Framed Roger Rabbit styley! and again, sorry, but neither can sing and I am looking forward to getting my bill and leaving!

I think if you were enjoying a few cocktails the entertainment would be fun and you could forgive the singing - unfortunately no one is!

certainly not the worst hotel restaurant I've been to, but I think it would be worth the effort to go out in to town

“Brup!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

You can find here more idiots per square meter in all the city. Silly place for dumb people. Smells like testosterone and hair gel and the girls are touched "accidentally". Want to throw up!

“Good Italian restaurant at Gothia Towers hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Good Italian restaurant in Gothenborg'sGothia Towers hotel with a varitey of Italian but also fusion food and a nice international wine selection. Better than the average scandinavian "pizza eatery". Staff is friendly, the visitors international and the service prompt and helpful.
Try the menue with great pasta and a good choice of meat.
