must try the goose breast

Found this place after our host recommended it to us.I had the goose breast which was cooked to perfection & just melted in my mouth, my partner had the pork which was also very tasty. The only down side was no ac to cool down in after walking around Lucca in July.

We visited this restaurant after searching TA for a good restaurant with a local tasting menu. Ammodonostro offers two tasting menus of Lucchese and other Tuscan specialities. One based around fish and seafood and one around meat. I opted for the meat menu which started with a Lardo di Colonnata (smoked lard) bruschetta, cured ham and cheese. The primi was... More

We were walking looking for a place to have our last dinner in Lucca. We were very happy with this restaurant. It had a very nice ambience in a garden setting, the waiter was very nice and efficient and spoke some English and we had a very tasty reasonably priced meal....very good on all counts.

A nice cozy restaurant with a beautiful terrace to enjoy your lunch or dinner while in Lucca. A generous menu of Tuscan choices gives you an opportunity to taste good local food while enjoying a chilled and relaxed atmosphere. Good quality products and home made paste thrilled us. Choices for vegetarians, vegans and gluten free are also available. Very good... More

We stayed in Lucca for 3 days and came across this restaurant, when we were looking for somewhere a bit off the tourist track. The service was professional but friendly, the courtyard was lovely and the food was all excellent. Highly recommended.

There are so many choices for Gluten free and the staff speak perfect English. We stayed in Lucca for 9 days and ate here twice. The only thing to note is that they close on a Tuesday. We will...

We stayed in Lucca at the anfiteatro and walked away from the crowded places and found this lovely restaurant. From the outside it seems like nothing, but when you open the door you feel the atmosphere. They had a special offer: fiorentina steak with two side dishes, a bottle of red and coffee for two persons 70 €. And it... More

The restaurant has lovely patio were we enjoyed our dinner. Their menu offers very nice suprisingly delicious dishes. Wine card offers a sufficient choice of affordable wines. Staff is friendly and correct. I can recomment this restaurant to anyone who is interested in more than pizza.

Although the setting was pleasant I didn't think the food was anything special. The service was efficient and friendly but on the whole I found this restaurant very average. I doubt if I would return.

This appears to a newish restaurant. There is a particularly nice outdoor dining area in the back garden. The menu is by and large typically Lucca with a few nice different additions and the pricing seemed to be a few euro cheaper than its opposition. The house red was very acceptable. It seems to be run by nice young people... More
