CASUAL FINE DINING

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... read more

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...

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

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

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 comfortable atmosphere made for a very... More
