“Second visit, just as memorable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

During my once-a-year business trip to the Temple-Belton area, Pignetti's is now on the "must do" list. Last night's visit with a large crowd of 18 coincided with a sold out wine tasting event in the restaurant, but our group received personalized service and special attention regardless. The wine recommendations of the sommelier were perfect and an outstanding complement to our appetizers - including the wonderful crab stuffed mushrooms - entrees and desserts. My house salad, lobster ravioli and crème brulee were perfect, and all my dinner companions raved on their main proteins, from ribeye to chicken to mahi-mahi; however, the risotto was universally called "bland" by those who had it. I definitely will return!

“downtown Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

nice cozy Italian restaurant in downtown Temple in old remodeled building. Very good cuisine and service. Large wine selection and a staff that knows their wine. I liked the atmosphere and the lighting. Good Italian food and I liked the Orange Ruffy grilled in a bag. Price not out of line for this quality of restaurant.

“Very pricy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 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.
