Tasty and plentiful !

When I left Ottawa about ten years ago, Flying Piggy's was one of my favourite restaurants. I try to make it in for a meal every time I'm home for a visit and it has remained incredible. The food is delicious, the decor is cozy and casual, and Frances is a charming and welcoming host. An Ottawa gem!

Excellent food, all made from scratch. Even the bread is fresh, the soup absolutely fantastic, and the pasta authentic Italian. The atmosphere is cosy and the service is excellent, Kaitlyn was very friendly and attentive, we would definatly return the next time we are in Ottawa.

We had been meaning to try Flying Piggy's after a friend who lives nearby raved about it. I must confess I have driven by this restaurant a thousand times and never noticed it, as it is a small house set back from the road, plus who would know it is a restaurant from the name? Last night we decided to... More

We were able to taste a few dishes at our hotel but because of our schedule, we were not able to go to the restaurant. When we come back to Ottawa, we will try to go to the restaurant and try again the chicken with artichokes which was delicious!

Really enjoyed the pesto pasta, cheese cake was really creamy. The venue was quaint but not a lot of room. Little cramped for Christmas parties and parking is really limited as well as street parking.

It's a small restaurant with a great atmosphere, they often have a nice special on to keep things interesting. I love the quiet atmosphere and patio on the summer. Great beer on tap and we are always happy with the service.

The name sounds like a bistro or pub, but there’s nothing pub-like about this restaurant. Nice atmosphere, low lighting...very cozy. Service was good too. We started with the soup of the day – roasted eggplant with roasted red pepper – and had an order of bruschetta with tomato, garlic, herbs, and cheese. For the main meal, my husband had top... More

I have been here several times. The homemade pasta and feature creme brûlée are always my favourite. I have tried many other items but those never disappoint! The restaurant is warm and cozy perfect for friends, family, and couples! The service has always been wonderful.

I had driven by this restaurant a number of times a chuckled at its name and marquee thinking that it was a hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint. It's not at all, it's a wonderful cozy Italian restaurant. It's casual but would work perfectly for a date or smart casual soiree. The food is reasonably priced and many of the pastas have half-portion... More
