Over the weekend we celebrated a family birthday at Legends. We had a party of nine which I know isn't always easy. The service was wonderful, rivaling 4 star establishments, and everything we ordered was delicious. I am very detail oriented so it isn't often that I can say that I was truly thrilled with everything start to finish. We... More

Great food, friendly staff. We had the veal and peppers with penne pasta on the side. Happy that we split because the portion was so large ($3.00 fee for splitting). Dessert--chocolate cake with peanut butter icing--was delicious, but portions also are huge. Only down side at this BYOB was an $8.00 corkage fee, which wasn't announced in advance and seemed...

While this place does not look like much from the outside, the restaurant is definitely worth a visit for the great food! It is small and cozy inside, especially for large groups. All of the dishes we had were excellent and we definitely recommend the chocolate cake for dessert. We are glad we found this restaurant for our Anniversary.

This was our first visit but won't be the last. The setting was casual and relaxing. The service was great and the food was very good Italian. We enjoyed the Greens & Beans, the lasagna, and the Chicken Cacciatore. It was all terrific and reasonably priced.

We selected Legends Eatery for Italian food. We were seated promptly and asked what we wanted to drink. Everything was looking up, the smell, the service, the menu selection. The coffee was brought quickly, but things went south fast after that. We waited about 5 to 7 minutes for water, then waited an additional 5 minutes for the waitress to... More

It was good. Not that kid friendly, not that big. Need reservation for a Friday or Saturday night. The gnocchi was soft and my kids loved it. The chicken was cooked perfectly.

Outwardly, it doesn't appear to be much but the food is plentiful, delicious and authentic. Love this place, you must go.

We had a reservation on April 9th at 8:00pm We were a party of 5. Service to the table was slow, but we were hungry. My mother was in Allegheny General. This was the day we decided to take her off of the Ventilator. So we needed a place to gather our thoughts. Our waitress we has was so rude.... More
