This small Italian restaurant is a great choice for "casual fine dining" : I use the word "casual" because of its rustic atmosphere and "fine dining" because of their prices (not cheap). The restaurant itself is set back from the road and a little difficult to find, but if you keep an eye out for its one-of-a-kind sign (a happy... More

We have eaten at Flying Piggies many times and always appreciate the day’s special. The chef creates flavourful combinations out of seasonal ingredients. It is one of the handful of restaurants in Ottawa where we are repeat customers.

We won't ever go back. There were 8 of us and the general consensus was over priced, nothing special food wise and they completely forgot to put in an order for one of the diners. The waiter was serving our meals and realized, oops we forgot to put in an order for you. We were not impressed. We had travelled... More

I had seen the good reviews of Flying Piggy's and wanted to see how they held up - it turns out the reviews were spot on. I had the Con Frutti De Mare which was excellent. At first I thought the portion to be on the smaller side, but little did I know that the bowlful of homemade pasta doesn't... More

A little pricey but the food and atmosphere make it well worth it. Shared mussels with leeks and cream. Then, Fettuccine with pan seared scallops con basil for me and steak cooked to perfection for him. He even ate his veggies. We would eat there every day if we could afford it. It is that good.

The food's great, the atmosphere and service likewise. The location sucks because its part of the somewhat drab south Bank St area, and the restaurant looks like a shack from the outside; but once inside you will forget all that. This is definitely one of the gems in Ottawa, that everyone should try out!

Our family has discovered the best restaurant in Ottawa: Flying Piggy's just off Bank Street. Small, "rustic" without being twee, great service and fabulous food. My wife and I ate there one night and took our daughter and son-in-law (Halifax-Dartmouth, which has a great restaurant scene for serious foodies) the next night.

We ate here this past weekend, and the food was really good. I had the veal marsala, my wife had the daily pasta special (light on the spicy), my daughter had the duck breast, and her boyfriend had the pasta special (spicy). All dishes were excellent. We also had homemade desserts that were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.... More
