well kept secret too good to pass up

A friend suggested we eat here as she goes to the restaurant regularly. It is not far from her home. The outside is not much to look at but inside is different. The diffuse lighting produces a nice atmosphere and the booth offered some privacy. There was no music background which made it easier to... read 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.

This is now the second time in a row that this restaurant has failed to wow us. We were at Flying Piggy's for lunch today. We ordered the day's specials - a frittata with salad and smoked salmon in a cream sauce on fettucine. The salad arrived in an extremely small bowl it was very difficult to eat. I finally... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant and were very disappointed. We were the first of the group to arrive, and asked what the specials were, and we told that the server would rather wait until everyone else was there. We went for a birthday celebration, and told the waitress 3 times that this was a special occassion; had flowers... More

I was staying at the new Residence Inn "near" the airport and walked around for about an hour looking for a beer and burger place before I settled into Flying Piggies just before closing. They welcomed me in and the chef whipped up a spicy Italian pasta dish before he closed down for the night. It was fantastic! You could... More

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
