“About the best atmosphere in Temple/Killeen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

For a "formal" night out, this is one of the two best in Temple/Killeen area. (OK, the other is Cheeves Brothers Steak). Food was outstanding, great wine selection and outstanding atmosphere. Yea, it cost a bit more, but it is not out of line and this IS NOT a fast food joint! Their bread dipping oil is the best I have ever had, it has a unique flavor that I loved. The calemari was great.

“Good food-good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We have eaten there several times, always for dinner. The food is always good, and the service is good as well, even when they are busy. They have a Tuesday special and frequently special offers on wine. It's not the best place in Temple, but it's a strong number two. I would highly recommend it. The owners aree usually there so if there is ever a problem they will deal with it, and they frequently come by the table just to say hello, which I think is a nice touch.

“Pignetti's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

While the restaurant is quaint and seems like it would be good, it is unfortunately not. They are putting some kind of additives or spices in their food that just do not agree with me. It is not just 'pure food' with natural seasonings. It also tastes very heavy. It would be nice to go somewhere and just get something simple and light. Pignetti's is not it. I also get turned off by the old bathroom smell when entering the bathroom hall in the back. Seems like it needs some plumbing help.

“good, but kind of expensive for what it is”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Great atmosphere. Fun night. Oddly enough, the pasta dishes were ok. The non-pasta dishes were better. Prices are too much for what it is.
