We ate here as a group of 8 and we were all very satisfied with the restaurant, the pasta is good as were all the main courses, the staff were delightful and helpful with our menu choices as they changed.

Saw this restaurant on TripAdvisor and so glad I tried it. There is a charming shady courtyard at the back, the service was good and the goose breast was buenissimo. Will definitely return the next time I am in Lucca.

The recommendations that this would be a good restaurant for gluten free eating were so right. We loved sitting out in the garden at the back of this unassuming place. The local wine was good value as usual. The food and service excellent, so that nothing felt like too much trouble.

We ate here on the first night of our holiday, mainly because it was the first restaurant we came across from leaving our apartment. However we enjoyed it so much we returned the next night. On the Saturday it was the day of the festival and we ate from the set menu for 15 euros a head and we were... More

What a lucky find! The facade makes it easy to walk past (I'm adding a foto), once crossing the rather simple indoors area, you are surprised by a very lovely shady inner courtyard imbedded in a huge variety of plants, the most relaxing atmosphere possible for eating with pleasure. And what pleasure eating is! Imagine a little pastry made out... More

Walking past this restaurant there isn't anything to catch your eye, however after searching trip advisor for places nearby we realised we had in fact walked past this restaurant every day and decided to try it. The garden out the back was a very nice setting, and my husband & I enjoyed our meal here. The service was OK, the... More

We ate at Ammodonostro on our 8th night in Lucca, having eaten in different restaurants each night. This was our best so far. Once past the slightly off-putting model of a waiter by the doorway, both the interior and the courtyard garden at the back are lovely, the latter beautifully planted and lit. The staff were really special - warm,... More

My husband and I dined here based on a recommendation from our B&B host and were delighted. The food was delicious, reasonably priced and plentiful. The service was excellent and the atmosphere romantic - we sat in the courtyard. We will most definitely return!

My wife and I were seated outside in a very nice garden area. The service was second to none. We had two pasta dishes, a salad and sweet and sour onions. Everything was great with special recognition going to the onions side dish. Also we split a nice bottle of the house white wine. Again the service was excellent and... More
