The waitress was very nice and attentive. The calamari we ordered was amazing. I ordered the salmon with black risotto I didn’t love the risotto it was drier than what I am used to but other than that the food was great.

Very good service. Calimari app was good, but a bit oily. Steak was cooked perfectly but underseasoned and the sauce was just ok. Ravioli and scallops entrees were very good. Probably the best food at Legacy place for dinner.

The food was great, two of us had a chicken Caesar salad. My friend had the veal and said it was the best she had ever had. We went late afternoon, wasn’t too busy. But service was slow. It would take about 15 min for a drink.

This place came through as a recommendation to me from OpenTable, so I tried it when I had some business nearby. Didn't realize it was in the shopping mall with lots of traffic. Sitting outdoor was not as fun as it looked. The waiter, while probably had good intention, was off timing. Here when we didn't need him, not here when we needed him. Made our experience dull. Food was generally good.

Wait staff and service was excrpionsl! Portions small ! Amatriciana was mediocre at best more other “stuff” than bucatini pasta. Fried calamari batter was awful. Place is overrated and overpriced ! Adjacent birthday party made noise level unbearably, to hell with this eatery after tab of over 200 bucks for a party of 4😫 again, wait staff was attentive and kind!!

I had the $20 3 course Presto lunch. Bruschetta was a small portion but very good, the gnocchi sorrentina was excellent and hearty, and the salted caramel gelato was great. The patio is dog-friendly and they brought water for my pup as well. We had a great lunch!

I’ve been here four times. The restaurant is beautiful, the food is very good. The service and attention to detail do not match what you’d expect from a restaurant like this. There doesn’t seem a manager or person of authority making sure everything is going just so.
Two out of four times that we’ve been here, our table was not ready after being notified that it was. The table was not set and we were short of table settings. On both of those occasions our 2nd round of drink orders took too long and we had finished our meals before they arrived. We sent the drinks back and ended our evening early.
The waitstaff and hostess seem to be rushing around taking away from a pleasurable dining experience.

I want to love this place and would love to return but won’t being doing so until the dining experience improves.

This review should reflect that my experience with brunch/lunch varied greatly from dinner. We had a lovely, attentive waiter for lunch one afternoon. Dinner times seem to be unprofessional and disorganized

1st indoor dining since pandemic. Good Caesar salad, pasta fruitti de mare & veal chop parmigiana. Service by & large was good if a bit unpolished. Reservation seating was timely. Would return to this restaurant at which we’ve previously eaten.
