The locals know this place and you'll need to elbow your way in. Reservations recommended. WE visit frequently. It is our go-to restaurant in Ottawa Recommended, soups, mussels, flighty boar fettucine, creme brule, andthing from the menu du jour.

My family was travelling and wanting to avoid the typical chain restaurants. We stumbled upon this place on a list of many local restaurants the hotel provided. The atmosphere was warm and quaint, and it was difficult to choose a dinner from the many wonderful options including the handmade pasta. It was a little pricier than the usual chain options,...

We ate here last night as part of a group of 14. The food was very good and the atmosphere was excellent. We had a private room so my comments do not reflect the atmosphere of the restaurant as a whole, just the private room. We split an appetizer of crab cakes which were excellent. I ate the pasta which... More

In the south of Ottawa I consider it very fortunate that there are a few great area restaurants. This is one of the handful and a consistent choice for us as a weeknight or weekend outing. We started off going here as a couple eight or more years ago and now we go with our four year old. Our most... More

Read the good reviews and thought we would try it. Food ok but our service experience was terrible. My son placed his order and when food arrived the order was not correct. Waitress apoligized and took away his meal. After 15 minutes of waiting, waitress brought him a new entree but a totally different entree to what he had ordered.... More

Another family dinner at one of my favouite restaurants. The staff are super, the food is always fresh and as the menu says-'eclectic'. We have been going to this spot for over 20 years, and try to return at least a couple of times each year. I have never been disappointed. It is small, and their choices may seem limited... More

It's small in size however the 9 of us had lots of room, lots of choice, and lots of fun. The orders ran from ravioli, to lamb, to bison, to chicken, to fish, and everyone enjoyed every bite. We are already talking about next years visit.

Ate here with some friends and all of us ordered one of the specials which was spagettini with goat cheese, bacon, squash and other yummy things in it. This meal was absolutely delicious! I think the secret is to order one of the specials. It is pricey $17 but worth every penny for the quality of the food. Also ordered... More

I've been eating there for more than a decade. I had stopped going here a yr ago since my fav dish- scallops con basil- was messed up so many times in a row and the waitress (not owner) gave me attitude that i didnt know how the dish was supposed to be. I had given up. But last night 2... More

We have been to Flying Piggy's on several occasions and with the exception of one visit our experience is always positive. My wife and I had a dissapointing anniversary dinner but the owner responded with an apology and a $50 gift certificate. We used the certificate to take our son for his birthday dinner and it was a very enjoyable... More
