Thursday night dinner at Pignetti's remains excellent. We live in the area, and occasionally eat here, though not as often as we used to before we retired. Thursday night is wine special night, you can have a bottle of wine at cost. They have one of the most extensive wine lists, so there is always something new to taste, with... More

Stopped in for dinner while visiting Temple as a result of comments on Tripadvisor. Turned out to be fantastic. I'm an old fart and have eaten a ton of Italian food in a zillion places. The Chicken Parmesan with cauliflower and asparagus was the best I ever had and the service was first class. Although located downtown it's just a... More

Quaint atmosphere, with great service. The staff is very professional and helpful and the owner frequently checks on patrons. Huge selection of wines to choose from. Had slight issue with the one of the dishes but it was resolved quickly and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants good Italian food or steaks. Definitely one of the best... More

We have eaten here on many occasions and have not been disappointed. From lunch items to dinner everything has been seasoned prepared and served well. The menu has a wide selection and the wine list is vast. A well appointed dinning room large but not crowed, the wait staff is well informed helpful but not smothering. We found the price... More

Went back to Pignatti's last night with my wife and in-laws. Appetizers were unbelievably good. Clams/mussels were cooked properly and were served in a nice sauce that was perfect for dipping your bread. Pepper bacon platter (and yes it is a platter) contained artichokes tomatoes, three types of cheeses, and toasted pita. Entrees were also very good, from tuna to... More

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
