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*

I have been visiting this ancient restaurant for more than 30 years. That is nothing considering the restaurant has been open since 1398! (or around that year). A wonderful family owns and operates the Locanda. I have watched them grow up and they have watch my children grow. It is about a 20 minute drive outside of Lucca, on your... More

We have been for lunch at this great restaurant and were fully satisfied. Homemade pasta with pesto and a delicious omelette with frsh asparagus cooked to perfection. Very friendly and charming service, good wine selection, also by the glass. A place where you can feel it is run by a family with love and attention to quality and hospitality. Close... More

we come back to this restaurant again and again. I am aiming to go through the whole menu but some dishes are so delicious – such as the handmade pasta with porcini mushrooms and truffles – that it will take a long time.

Our best restaurant in the area. we choosed the seasonal menu with wild muschrooms in pasta as appetizer and the Angus beef slices as main course. Everything was perfect including the house wines. A great place to recommend.

Wonderful Tuscan dinner. Our group of 20 enjoyed a fabulous dinner consisting of canapes, steak, veal, pumpkin ravioli ( to die for), mushrooms and lots of wine. The desserts were the best. We had one of everything. Figs and tiramisu were the best. Very family friendly.

I eat there ten/fifteen times a year and I never regret going there. Steaks are their specialty but all their dishes are prepared with great care. The traditional cuisine of Lucca is the base of the menu, but, particularly during the Summer, they try making other dishes, built with fantasy and experience, that are worth tasting. In the right season,... More
