Excellent soup and entree. I would recommend this place! I'm here with a friend who has been all over the world. She says that this place has the best mussels she has ever had with an emphasis on the SAUCE. They call it "mama's gravy". I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu here. This place...

I took my husband here for his 29th birthday. One of our friends recommended it, and after reading all the reviews, I decided to give it a try. What a disappointment! This is seriously the worst Italian food I have ever eaten. We ordered bruschetta (my husband’s favorite) and when it came out, looked more like a pizza topped with... More

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.

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
