While Legacy Hall has undergone many changes in the two years since its opening, the new options seem more and more promising. The Italian Job is the newest food stall to open in Plano’s three-story food hall, bringing hearty, filling pastas to Collin County foodies. At The Italian Job, guests can choose from nine different pasta dishes, all of which are made from scratch in-house daily, using high-quality ingredients. The new food stall will focus on bringing old-world tradition to the modern, fast-casual market.
