We stopped in for a late Friday night dinner after arriving in Pittsburgh. I'd found this place listed on the top 25 restaurants in Pittsburgh. There's not much int he way of decor aside from photos related to Pittsburgh sport teams, but were there for the food and not the atmosphere. Service was quick, friendly and efficient.

The potato soup weas excellent. The veal parmigiano was good, not great, and the pasta was a bit mushy, but the sauce was fantastic. The chicken cacciatore was very tasty and the chicken perfectly done. Overall, a very enjoyable mea.

What a wonderful meal. We were looking for a good place to dine near The Priory. This reminds one of an old Italian diner without frills until your food is delivered. From soup/salad to dessert, the food is terrific. There were 6 in our party and everyone of us enjoyed our dinner. We will return.

What do you say to someone who enters your Italian restaurant and tells you they can't eat garlic? Chef Dan and his staff said, " no problem", and went on to prepare me a wonderful dinner sans garlic. I can't say enough good things about Legends from the food to the chef and staff. Thanks, we'll be back.

Some of the best Italian food around. We dine in or take out frequently. Been in Pittsburgh for months on business and this is one of our regular stops!

Located close to Allegheny Hospital, Legend is usually crowded. Mostly with folks who prize convenience over dining experience. Our experience was below average on all counts. The only issue open to a reviewer is what was worse; food or service, seating or atmosphere. All were below average and, when compared to other locations on the North Side, well below average. And when you throw in cost...don't bother.
