Lovely lunch

We stopped here for lunch before flying home. Delicious food, interesting dishes at a reasonable price. Service was on the slow side but we were having a relaxed lunch and it was no problem as it wasn't an excessive wait. Lovely family atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome.

What a find! We had lunch in this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. The food was first class. The waiting staff extremely polite. The owner very friendly and told us her son was the chef. Compliments to the chef! The restaurant was delightful, if in Lucca eat here, it is not to be missed. Enjoy!

Quite modern and fresh inside, its lunchtime clientele included a large number of families with small children. Not a problem as they were reasonably well behaved and the place obviously caters well for families. Food was good, I had a beautifully flavoured Risotto di Marinara. Service pleasant, efficient and with a little English. Slightly offf the beaten track so better... More

We had lunch in this restaurant while we were visiting the town of Lucca, I could honestly say that this was the best meal we had in our trip to Italy. The service was very good and polite. We had our lunch in the terrace that was very nicely surrounded by trees. Overall, this restaurant was a very nice place... More

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

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.
