Good food, but you wait for it!

Tried this restaurant a short while back for dinner with family. Atmosphere was fine, service was polite but after we received our food, service was hard to find. Talking about food, even though the food was good it took quite a long time to get it. From the time we ordered to the time we had it... read more

Our server made several small errors that detracted a bit and the decor tries to be quirky but just falls short. I had the thyme and ricotta gnocchi with a rose sauce and chicken added - the gnocchi was absolutely fabulous! Two of our party had one of the specials with beef brisket which was quite tasty but a bit... More

I recently ate at the Flying Piggy's on a recommendation from my hotel. The resturant is a small place set back from the road. The staff was friendly and seated us right away even though we didn't have a reservation. The decor is a little dark for my liking but it is tastefully done and pleasing. The waiter took our...

We chose this place to celebrate our wedding anniversary and made a reservation based on the very good reviews. The hostess encouraged us to eat on the patio, where there are a half dozen tables and a cute little herb garden. The service was excessively slow - not to take the orders, but it took about twenty minutes to get... More

Went on a Saturday night - fortunately had made reservations as it was packed. Cozy atmosphere with music. Served portion of homemade bread with choice of dipping oils. Has very large salads and homemade fettucine. Had "Fruits de Mare" - again large portions loaded with mussels, large shrimp and scallops in basil cream sauce. Sauce changed from marinara at our...

This restaurant has a menu of interesting choices. The specials of the day were the most popular choices for our group. Service was a bit slow but it gives you a chance to linger over courses and drinks and chat. It was Mother's Day so probably more crowded than usual. you will not feel rushed. It is a small restaurant... More

I have learned to never judge a book by its cover, and never judge the food by the exterior of a restaurant. Tonight that was proven once again by our visit to this hidden Italian gem. We were staying out by the Ottawa airport and started to ask around for recommendation and "Piggy's" kept coming up. So we just had... More

Caitlin looked after us and made our visit particularly special. She was adept at recommending items and very professional, polite and customer-focused. She always has a smile and just makes you feel at home.

I have lived in this neighbourhood for years and have driven by this restaurant, finally tried it and was very pleasantly surprised. The decor was a little dark but the service was pleasant. They have a pretty good wine list and were helpful in suggesting wine. I had the duck that was one of the specials that evening. It was... More
