Small, but wonderful!

Very small and NOISY, but great food. My family ate chicken parm and I had a special; Blackened snapper and sweet sausage over pumpkin and butternut squash ravioli and tortellini pasta with cherries, walnuts, and mushrooms in an apricot cream sauce. Sooooo amazingly delicious. It is BYOB, but $4.00... read more

good for lunch, tables close together that makes it difficult to discuss personal versus buisness. Would recommend the fried fish sandwich. Did not think much of the tiny side salad.

Have been wanting to try Legends for a long time, and I`m glad we finally made it. The food was delicious and the service extra special. You can tell that there are a lot of regulars there. Our table of 4 had a variety of dishes, and they were all wonderful. I especially loved the appetizer special, flatbread topped with... More

We were taken here by friends Skip, Jack and Cindy and it was the most amazing Italian food we have eaten. The atmosphere is friendly and easy, the service excellent and the place was buzzing. I could have eaten here every night of our short stay in Pittsburgh!

Our family had a great meal at Legends last night. The decor is cozy with pictures of Steelers and Pirates on the walls. My salmon entree was the best I ever had. Their Veal Parmesan was huge and delicious. Don't let the BYOB scare you away. They stored our beer in their fridge, opened our wine at no charge and... More

We have never been disappointed with the food at lunch, mid-day or dinner. this is the place to go for food at any hour and any degree of hunger. try and have room for the deserts, pie slices can provide enough desert for up to four people after you have soup and an pasta.

We have not been back to Legends for several years, but friends suggested it and we thought that it might be good. I think "good" was about it. Appetizers were fair -- we tried two. Bread was brought to the table along with olive oil, but a request for butter was answered with a "sure," but never brought to the... More

If I could give this restaurant a zero, I would. We were just asked by our waitress to leave because someone with a reservation was waiting for our table. My father and father-in-law were still finishing up their coffee and we had not yet finished our dessert! I've never been so humiliated. Do NOT go to this restaurant! Their food... More

Small family run Italian restaurant. It is has maybe 20 tables and it was very busy when we arrived. Wonderful warm staff and very informed about the food that they serve. It is like joining your Italian family for dinner. Fried mozzarello balls were great also their salads were very fresh. The scallops that I had were perfectly done and... More

We stayed in a nearly hotel, The Priory, and they sent us--otherwise we would never have picked this restaurant out. It is small, they can seat around 50 people. The tables are close together like they would be in Italy and there is a lot of noisy conversation. The food is great--don't expect a lot of tomato sauce; this is... More
