Really Good Food & Excellent Service in a Comfortable and Cozy Atmosphere

Met with our best friends for a nice casual dinner out. This is a nice little Bistro style place with very good food (see recommendations below). Our server, Elyse, was excellent! A great sense of humour and an outstanding sense of when to be there with whatever we needed. All this combined with a... read more

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

We went to the flying piggies for mother's night dinner but on a saturday. Need to make a reservation especially for Saturday evening. It is busy but that means it is popular. The specials were probably the most interesting items on the menu. The service was a bit slow but it seemed that the kitchen was the reason - probably... More

I've been here three times and it never disappointed me! Amazing Home made Pasta dishes. A must visit for romantic or family dinners

After a long absence we returned to see if the menu had improved. We were disappointed by both the food and the service. While the wine arrived promptly we waited over an hour for the food order to arrive. The beef dish, ordered medium rare, arrived almost well done. The Caesar salad was disappointingly bland and only 3 croutons. A... More

A group of 6 of us recently dined at Flying Piggy's on a Saturday night. The place was packed, and we were glad we'd made a reservation. I have fatal allergies to a number of foods in addition to a gluten intolerance. At many Italian restaurants, this would probably mean a boxed pasta. Piggy's actually makes their own gluten-free pasta,... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner for our 44th Wedding Anniversary at this Ottawa bistro. This was not our first visit, nor will it be our last. the building sign on he building claims Casual Dining as their forte. And so it is. The restaurant is small, very nicely organized, seating is comfortable, the décor is, in my mind, a... More

Don't let its looks throw you off! Excellent food and service at a reasonable price. All of the vegetables were very fresh and the wine list was very good.

We went there with a group of 6. Found the service poor, extreemly noisy and the food was so so. It has deteriorated with years to the point where I won't return.
