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*

Superb food and service. An authentic Italian restaurant. We were a large party including young children celebrating a friend's birthday. We were greeted with processco on arrival and they made a cake for us. Nothing was too much trouble. Definitely recommend.

the food and wine were just as amazing (florentine steak with sauteed spinach "best steak, ever!", thin tagliatelle with mushroom and grandmother’s style tripe, mMm). the service - was MEGA-amazing. it's definitely service like this that makes a restaurant not just a place to fill your tummy, but a place to come back to and build a relationship with :)

I visited this family run restaurant for lunch as we were in the area and I liked the reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was very authentic, rustic, yet sophisticated at the same time. I suspect it feels more atmospheric in the evenings but we were very happy to be there for lunch. The decor is rustic...

We found this place around Lucca with Trip Advisor and decided to eat there. It's not so easy to find, but Waze will help you with a prepaid 4G SIM card ;) The staff was great, and the food AMAZING. I think they are a Michelin-starred restaurant, really traditional place and the price was really good for the quality. We... More

Lucca has many charming and very good restaurants, but the best one of all is Antica Locanda di Sesto. Take a taxi if you don't have a car (the restaurant will call a taxi for your return to Lucca). Not only will you have an absolutely wonderful lunch or dinner, you will have the chance to see the beautiful countryside.... More

First of all, we were welcomed like home. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Dinner was amazing. Starting with entrees and finishing with amazing desserts. Their olive oil was soft and the best we've tasted. Hope to come back next year.

Where to start? The service was fabulous and the food delicious. The bill and coffee came with a white truffle that was as decadent as my meal. If there was cause for complaint it would be that the house wine is drinkable, but mediocre.

When my fiancée and I decided to travel around Italy, we also decided to only eat local cuisine. Upon entering we were given complimentary prosecco along with a complimentary appetizer. The appetizer was a thick piece of toast baked in olive oil and served with rosemary (doesn't sound like much, but it was delicious). We also ordered our own appetizers... More
