Always a delight

My wife and I have dined at Legends many times - and it never disappoints! We went recently and enjoyed the service and the food. My wife craves "Mama's gravy" , their flavorful marinara sauce. She enjoyed the Chicken Cacciatore and I had the Chicken Romano. Both were wonderful - the chicken was... read more

We were sent over to Legends of the North Shore for lunch by the receptionist at the National Aviary, half a mile away. Nice walk over, mostly through a park. Ordered sandwiches and salads, then were surprised when the server presented us with a basket of hot herbed focaccia and delicious dipping oil. I should have just had the white... More

I had a couple of hours to myself and decided to find a place for a light lunch. However the voices were so great that I just kept eating; even dessert. The wait staff were so attentive and made me feel so comfortable.

I am Italian, three years n the Burgh, and I have always delayed my visit there, despite the many comments, sure that "I could do that". Well... I could, but it would be less spectacular and crafty. Great food, in a relatively small menu (which to me sounds like quality and control), crafted according to the season. Definitely a place... More

Stumbled upon this little place when visiting a family member at Allegheny General Hospital. Upon approach, the exterior lacked appeal and it didn't improve inside. We were greeted with a friendly face and were promptly seated, as we walked by the open very busy kitchen. The extensive Italian influenced menu offered everything from fish, seafood and, yes, pasta. Everything was... More

Get the chicken romano get the caramel pecan cake for dessert also BYOB place, but the state store is right down the road on east ohio street. modest cork fee.

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
