I have been eating here for about 7 years now on my regular visists to Lucca - mailny in the summer a few times a year. I find the service great, and the food beautifully cooked and presented in a way that only Italians can do whilst keeping the ingreedients simple, but high in quality. I find some comments with...

We found the restaurant just in passing. Seated under a big sunshade in the garden we took our time over a meal of delicately flavoured sea bass followed by the semifreddo. Looking forward to returning before our holiday is over and trying some of the dishes from the menu of the day.

My husband and 12 year old daughter and I ate here while we were in Lucca for a week. We were treated like royalty from the minute we walked in off the street! The service was incredible! The food was delicious! We had an awesome evening!

Enjoyed this meal. Penne pesto and roast branzino (sea bass) inside diced courgette crust, cooked just right. Colleagues loved the ossobuco and especially the peas! Good panna cotta di fragole after. Ate out back, in an open air garden-lined courtyard, peace away from the busy streets in this famous Tuscan town.

On my fortnight long whistle-stop tour of Tuscany, I unfortunately only had the pleasure of sojourning in Lucca for one night. Nevertheless, this restaurant was without doubt one of the highlights of my whole holiday. On the recommendations of two Lucchese foodies, I staked out the Ammodonostro menu and dropped in for lunch. Magnifico! The service was so friendly, the... More

We discovered Ammodonostro 4 years ago and have returned every year since, whilst Lucca is a great town I think it is the restaurant that draws us back. It is the combination of great food, wine, and friendly service offered in an attractive dining space complete with a lovely courtyard, all that plus great value for money. The fact that... More

While living in Lucca for some months each year we always take our visitors from Holland to our favourite restaurants. Among them is for certain Ammodonostro because of this not always easy to grap combination of the quality of what's offered on the menu, the spacy and relaxing interior and, not to be forgotten, the friendliness of the staff.

We stumbled upon Ammodonostro during a heavy rain storm looking for a place to eat after having been turned down at our preferred place, which was packed. Although the restaurant was completely empty we decided to give it a go. And glad we did! Nice, modern and clean interior, friendly staff and incredibly tasty food. Ammodonostro has a good selection... More
