The claims made for this restaurant are impressive;and it totally lives up to them. My party of four all enjoyed a splendid meal, and the ambience and service were equally impressive. The wine (their own) was delicious and really not too highly priced. I'm glad I wasn't driving as finding the restaurant was a bit complicated, and we had to... More

Absolutely stunning food.. We tried a few things and we all loved it. For dessert the Pannocatta and creme brulee were absolutely delicious.

This restaurant is excellent. I travel every year to Italy and my in-laws are Italian so I know a bit about good Italian food and this place is not just well worth a visit but a MUST visit. Service is professional.

Had a very pleasant meal here, but nothing so special that it was worth the drive. The pasta was good but not great, and the meat was tasty, but had to be sent back to the kitchen twice, as it was originally served so raw you couldn't even chew it! The dessert was similarly good but nothing special. You will... More

The restaurant is outside Lucca center at drive distance and it's serving very good products as food and wine: mix of entries was extremely good, own made wine too. The meat was tender and well prepared even if the steak was somehow too small compared to ones seen on other tables (...so next time I need to be more clear... More

This locanda is a Lucca tradition dating back at least to my grandfather's time. It is a bit out of the way, but if you are staying in Lucca the restaurant will arrange for a shuttle to and from the restaurant. Call ahead and request this at the time of reservations. The food and wine here are impeccable. Aurelio is... More

We went for lunch with our 7 month old. Despite it being quite a smart restaurant they had no problem accommodating us and were great with our little girl. The menu is full of local specialities and everything is really fresh. I had the anchovies and beans to start which were delicious and finished off with delicious olive oil. Then... More

Description
Antica Locanda Di Sesto is a restaurant located on the right side of the Serchio River,in the outskirts of Lucca. The Building dates back to the 1368, as the marble stone in front of the restaurant says, a period when the local merchants started to build their own country estates, used to relax and chill out in the summer but also to gain business profits. From the XIV Century the village of Sesto was property of the "De Nobili" Family and they had, according to various rumors, 101 farmers working only for them in the village. It is thanks to this powerful family that the "Locanda" was built, and even now you can see the remains of the old building inside the restaurant. *We now offer a free shuttle service from Lucca town centre*
