Legacy at Nancy Lopez is by far the best restaurant in the Villages. Staff are professional and the food is very good. In addition, while very slightly more expensive than its competitors, the quality of food more than makes up sor that.

The staff worked hard to make it special and the food was great. The meal was limited in selection for the evening but was well planned and very good. I thought it was a bit "pricey" but included all the courses. Very good !!!
