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

As my sibling and I were looking for somewhere besides the hospital cafeteria to eat lunch, a nurse suggested we try Legends. He did not steer us wrong, lunch was excellent. The staff was attentive and friendly. Lunch was delicious along with the bread and olive oil, yummy!

I've lived in Pittsburgh for forty years, but this was my first visit to this staple of the City's North Shore. Legends of the North Shore gets its name from the photos of sports greats adorning the walls, but lives up to its name equally well due to its delicious culinary offerings. The place itself is spartan. Entering the establishment... More
