We really enjoyed eating here. The hotel staff in the lobby were excellent with the kids and brought a car for them to play with while we waited for our food. The food was great. A little pricey but we'll worth the trip.

Didn't feel like driving. Glad we stayed. Nice restaurant. Simple classic italian dishes. Pesto pasta, 4 cheese linguini and lots of fresh fish. Impeccable service. Very reasonable drink list. Wine liquors and beer.

Fantastic food! I had sea bass in tomato sauce with shrimp, clams, and muscles. My girlfriend had hamburger and her daughter had the four cheese penne pasta. We all thought our dinners were excellent!

Had a great meal here after reading all the positive reviews. Staff was very welcoming and we were seated right away. Shared the large spinach salad with goat cheese, carmelized walnuts and apple. Excellent. Wife had the sea bass with shrimp and mussel sea sauce. Again a very large serving that was excellent. I had the pappardelle with porcini mushrooms... More

I loved their food. Dinner menu has many choices to choose from. The staff are very friendly. Although the breakfast menu only has a few options, I still enjoyed it very much.

The six of us had a really nice dinner, most had fresh seafood which was excellent. The waiter and servers were friendly attentive and the service couldn't have been better. Overall it was a very nice restaurant.

We had a very nice dinner at La Leyenda -- my wife, son and I. We were seated quickly at a well appointed table, there were several other groups, but the ambiance was still private and quiet. The food was quite good -- I did send my steak back to be cooked a little more, but this was done promptly... More

Started with the tuna tartar (comes in a pressed cylinder atop... More
