Never disappointed.

One of my favorite places. Very friendly people, informal setting, good food. VERY busy on weekend evenings ... limited space to wait.

Went here with a group of friends with a reservation and we didn't get seated for 20 minutes after our reservation time. You basically sit on top of the kitchen because the place is so small and gets so loud. I was hoping that would be made up for with really good Italian food but I was wrong. The food... More

Just down the street from Allegheny General limited menu, BUT the food was delicious! Not your ordinary mom and pop corner diner, friendly staff and cozy environment to sit and enjoy your meal.

In town for business and someone suggested we visit. Had a party of 3 and had a great experience. Ordered the Chicken Parm. with spaghetti and was excellent. They had a special that night of escarole with white beans that all of us ordered. Excellent appetizer. Finished the evening off with fried cannoli's that were good. This a BYOB place.

It has a diner atmosphere. Quite small. Friendly staff. Food was great! Most entrees are $20. We went on a Monday which is couples night. We got a shared chicken entree, vegetables, potatoes, bruschetta, two wines and a shared sundae for $30! The apple pie was crazy good.

Was brought here by business partner for lunch. Despite being in suits, it was very comfortable. The building is old, the kitchen is in front of the restaurant, but the experience is very comfortable. The food was quick and very good, necessary for lunch.

Good value and great food. No alcohol but you can bring in bottles of wine for $4 corkage fee. Friendly staff. Interesting crowd of regulars that seem to really enjoy the place.

Truly love this restaurant, the best greens and beans, all chicken dishes are always tender and delicious, I love their mussels Bianca, my husband loves the chicken parmesan and chicken cacciatore. Owner and staff always very accommodating.

The entrees, and breads are wonderful and desserts are huge, The salads are average. Food is freshly made and you can observe the chefs from the front area. The restaurant is very small so reservations or early arrival are recommended. Much of the wait staff has been there pretty much since the restaurant opened and are knowledgable and friendly. It...

My sister and brother-in-law from East Liverpool, Ohio always eat at Legends when visiting someone at Allegheny General Hospital, and they've raved about it for several years. We live in Little Rock, Arkansas so we don't know anyone who would go to Allegheny! Seriously, after our recent experience at Legends, I believe it would be worth a trip on its... More
