“Enjoyable Nights”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We saw this restaurant while looking for another recommended one. We decided on Ammodonostro as the other was still closed at 7.20pm on a Friday night.
Fortunately, we were among the early birds and had the choice of tables.We chose outside in the lovely garden which was enhanced with discrete lighting and soft music.
The service was friendly, the atmosphere conducive to conversation, the food excellent and not expensive.There was a good choice of wine, including a house wine.
My husband had a beef dish and I had sea bass. They were delicious and we were given time between courses.
We enjoyed this place so much we returned on our second night in Lucca. We again arrived early and chose a garden table.
This time I ordered the cheese plate and found it expensive at 10euros for 6 small slices of cheese with nothing else.
We would go back if we are ever in Lucca again but I probably wouldn't order the cheese plate.
If you intend to arrive after 8pm, I would suggest booking a table.

“Good to be back!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Back in Lucca we tried Ammodonostro again (3 times). Nothing to change our first opinion: nice afmosphere, delicious food, value for money (as you know an important assessmentfactor for the Dutch..). So nothing else to do but highly recommend this place. Ammodonostro is still among our Lucca-Top3.

“Lovely, relaxing and good food!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

It's about the food... delicious and the seating is conversation friendly and attractive. The server was very helpful with translations and substitutions. Fixed price menu has nice options too.

“Superb”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Came here because of the tripadvisor reviews (which don't always live up to expectation) but this one didn't disappoint at all. Lovely little place, very efficient and friendly service and above all, superb quality food. Can't recommend enough. Not expensive at all either.
