A go to spot for consistently good food, mussels, veal, and fish specials. Very friendly service, and always a discount for theater, plays, concerts, ladies, and more. Desserts big enough, and house made for 2 or more! Steeler owner, and former ambassador Art Rooney is a regular diner.

Our out of town relatives wanted to try Legends. None of us locals had heard of it. Glad we found it. The food was delicious. Nice alternative to the standard chain restaurant. Service was super.

Walked in, they tried to put me next to some dirtball. I would rate it the best tasting Hospital Food I've ever had, thats about it. Spaghetti was average at best, the one big meatball was maybe a little bit better than AVERAGE. Menu only had a few items. $12.95 for a plate of spaghetti the size of a childs... More

Looking for a some place to eat in Deutshetown, I passed over this restaurant several times before finally deciding to give it a try. I sure am glad I did. I think it should be rated higher on TA. It is small and loud. It doesn't have a liquor license. But the food is good. We went on a Thursday,... More

We really like this restaurant and its service and might go back. The waitress was terrific. We really loved the salads. But two things about it really bothered us. First, the food is under seasoned. The veal parm was very nice and fresh but it didn't have much taste. Neither did the Bolanese pasta dish. A little more seasoning of... More

After reading some positive Google reviews for this restaurant, my boyfriend and I decided to give it a try while visiting Pittsburgh. First off, let me warn you of how tiny this dining area is. For some that might not be an issue, and I understand that you have to work with what you have, but the tables were incredibly... More

Their menu features many Italian staples, but also some twists that we enjoyed....like the veal & peppers, or the inventive shellfish special that night. Our table raved about the veal parmigiana, chicken romano, the greens & beans, and the mussels. We all had trouble deciding, since the choices sounded so good. The marinara was so fresh and good. Even the... More
