We shared a very good octopus salad for start, and then, we tried tagliolini frutti di mare. Superb!
Usually, this is the dish we use to test a restaurant. Canard does it perfect: home made pasta, fresh seafood, light delicious sauce. With good white house wine, all was inexpensive for this quality.
The team is friendly and efficient. We'll come back for fish and home deserts!

Laigueglia is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Not just my opinion, but that of an organization that celebrates such things. Years ago, it had a destination restaurant owned by the Norwegian explorer Thor Heyderhal. That restaurant changed hands several times and is now closed. That's probably irrelevant to this review except that the current dining scene in the town is fairly forlorn.

We still love the long walk along the boardwalk from Alassio and have always hoped to find a restaurant that was a worthy destination. We did. Le Canard is a simple trattoria with a blackboard sign outside showing the specials of the day. The prices are modest, the inside of the restaurant is basic and clean, but what comes out of the kitchen is worthy of your attention.

Laigueglia, and Alassio for that matter, have far too many mediocre pizza places. but that is another story. Here you can have legitimate Ligurian specialties cooked to order with fresh ingredients and served simply and graciously. Their grilled calamari is among the best we have had anywhere. The fish is fresh and carefully prepared. The pasta and sauces will pass a local's critical inspection

For a small and modest restaurant, they have a decent selection of wines that go beyond Liguria (although we usually stick with the wonderful Pigato and Vermentino from local vineyards. Deserts are predictable but adequate (panna cotta, fresh fruit, sorbetto.

We have been here for lunch perhaps 8-10 times over the last three or four years. The prices are very fair. Both locals and tourists are in attendance. The welcome is warm and genuine.

They deserve to be on your list.
