500 East North Ave.
Pittsburgh, PA 15212

Located less than a block from Allegheny General Hospital, Legends of the North Shore is positively homey, with a down-to-earth staff that seems genuinely glad to see you.  Legends’ interior is small, with a tiny open kitchen — so it always feels busy, and the food, much like the staff, is homespun.  Start with warm house-made focaccia and yummy dipping oil.  Then order the soup of the day — which is really like Mom’s (well, if you’re lucky enough to have a Mom who makes soup from scratch) — or the polenta appetizer with sweet sausage, roasted red peppers and pesto drizzle.  Various pasta, chicken, eggplant and pork dishes are available; one standout is the Spots Romano with lemon, parsley and butter. Legends is a neighborhood Italian restaurant that’s a cut above.
