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

Was at Flying Piggy's on Valentines evening and the meal was unbelievable. My husband had veal and I had steak. The meal was absolutely amazing! Will definitely return.

This was my first time here, and I was impressed. I went with my my husband and my mother. I had the garlic cream and leek mussels to start, and the featured duck breast special. Both were delicious. The decor was memorable. They had various pig-themed decor and it was charming. Service was good as well. I will be coming... More

I love this restaurant and always try to influence, when asked where to go with a group, this result. Went last week with a group from work and while we waited a bit for our food (and to be honest, the service wasn't as exceptional as it usually is), it was worth the wait. The half size portion pastas were... More

Flying piggies is one of the best restaurants in Ottawa. It has an extensive menu, and the daily specials are so fresh, tasty and the servings just right. There is a great wine list, we always have the NZ Sauvignon Blanc, chilled perfectly! The servers are friendly, unobtrusive and will offer an opinion as to the menu, wine and daily... More
