My husband and I went here for New Years Eve. They had A Prix Fix Menu and the same price for every person but it gave you about 4 choices for each course...Appetizer, Entree and dessert. All were served with Haricot Verts and Mashed Potatoes. The wait staff is perfect, I can't say enough about how well they take care... More

This is one of the few restaurants in Temple that has well prepared food and great wines at acceptable prices. I am rather picky and I have never had a bad meal...anything selected will be wonderful. Be sure to ask about their date night specials. The ambience is OK, but I would like dimmer lighting. I am 70 , but... More

Pignetti's is definitely the top independent restaurant in Temple, based on food quality, cost and service. My wife and I eat here often, and we've never been disappointed.

Found this gem on TripAdvisor as we travelled south from Dallas to San Antonio. It is near the old town square, so it isn't a place you'd find by looking at the highway signs. Fabulous, fresh, traditional and innovative Italian food with competent, friendly service. We were served bread with an olive oil dipping sauce while we waited for our... More

I enjoyed my dining experience at Pignetti's. The atmosphere is friendly, with an almost family "tinge". Tables are close, so customers greet each other across tables! The wine list was extensive, we found a bottle that met our satisfaction. The crab cakes were adequate....the entrees, very good and seasoned well! I would definitely return!

I was impressed with the food which was great. Great selection of wine. The dining area was not that great. I was not thrilled with the restaurant because there were so many boxes of wine all over the place. I had to walk around them to navigate through the restaurant.

I wanted to update my old review of Pignetti's restaurant. I took my girlfriend to Pignetti's for her birthday. I called for reservations and specifically requested a table on the far side of the dinning room entry way since the last time I was there it was like having a table on the freeway...way too much traffic and the old...

Incredible atmosphere, professional wait staff, awesome food and I am at a loss of words for the wine collection. Wish I had pictures of the wine offerings. My favorite resturant in Temple, Texas.
