“Very pricy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Although the food was very good, it was also very pricy. It would be a great special occassion place or good for a date night. They are open late, so eating after an earlier event is possible.

First visit to Pignetti's to celbrate a family members birthday. The atmosphere was nice and the service was excellent. However, the food is expensive and nothing special.

“Not Worth It”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went for dinner. We ordered the calamari for appetizer and it tasted like it was frozen. I ate veal with seafood and the veal was tough and sauce was bland. The risotto that came with meal was very bland. The bill was $102 for two people including wine and it was not worth it. Traditional Italian dishes were not on menu. Plus, it was very hot in the restaurant. I am usually cold and I was burning up. Service was not that great. Manager appeared like he did not want to be there. We were excited to try the restaurant and we were very disappointed. We will not be returning.

“Dependable Italian Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Like other restaurants, Pignetti's has to deal with an"off the beaten path" location in downtown Temple. That said, we have never been disappointed here. It's solid Italian fare, above average wine list, and an occasional surprise, like the veal osso bucco that is served on Friday. We have never had any issues with service or other criticisms mentioned in these reviews. If you are expecting "upper end" Italian, you will have to travel to Austin or Dallas. But for a dependable spot, where you can comfortably bring family or friends, we don't think Pignetti's will let you down.
