Tiny little spot, but the amazing food they send out is awesome! Fresh, flavorful, staff is fast, friendly and amazing at navigating around a very small space! I had the Mussels Bianco - delicious - fresh mussels, not frozen and sooo tender! My husband had the gnocchi with sauce - he ate it all! My daughter had fettuccine alfredo with... More

Legends had the best menu of all the restaurants near our inn. It's a BYOB place (we bought wine several blocks away in a really sketchy part of town). We were lucky to reserve; this is a popular restaurant. Our table overlooked several larger tables and we could see many of the dishes. I could also see the two cooks... More

Thank you, TripAdvisor! Our family - a group of 10 people ages 3 through 60 - just had an amazing dinner in Pittsburgh. Even though Legends is a small restaurant, the staff was kind enough to accommodate our large group, and respond to all of our special needs, with fast, friendly, service and fresh, homemade, tasty Italian food. From the... More

This small unassuming place is large on food and patrons . Because of its size it is very loud, always crowded and has wonderful food and plenty of it. They do not skimp on portions and the desserts are homemade and simply huge. Sharing is best. The service is excellent with drinks promptly refilled and the wait staff is attentive... More

We ate early on Monday before going to see Steely Dan. The restaurant was not crowded, but I have heard it usually is. This is not the place to come if ambiance is high on your needs list. However if you are all about the food this is the place. Our group shared 2 appetizers. Polenta with marinara and fried... More

The food was great. The restaurant takes great care in preparing its meals. My sister-in-law, who is very discerning, was very impressed with her dinner, and the four of us enjoyed the atmosphere and our dinners. We will be back.

When we first pulled up, we were leery because the outside of the building has a little to be desired. We went in because we had a reservation. The place is very small, so it is a good thing we had called ahead. My gnocchi meal was one of the best I've had and the desserts are homemade, delicious, and... More

My salmon was undercooked & the mashed potatoes were like a cheese paste. The sauce on the gnocchi tasted like sauce you buy in a jar, expected fresher given the raves about this restaurant

My boyfriend and I had heard great things about this place from a coworker so decided to check it out. When we first arrived, a woman behind the counter ignored us for the first five minutes we were there. After waiting a considerable while longer, we were FINALLY seated. The service was ok. The food was also just ok. However,... More

My husband and I went here with friends; I was skeptical about restaurants in this area -- across the street from Allegheny General Hospital, near the Warhol and Mattress Factory museums and not much else. But we have gone back quite a bit! Excellent pasta, sauces, and Maryland spots fish. Salads are very tasty; garlic bread is a bit too... More
