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*

We arrived for Lunch on a Sunday afternoon on our way to Pisa. We had no reservation and the restaurant was very busy. We were graciously offered an outside table and enjoyed a glass of Prosecco while we waited for it to be prepared. This is off the beaten path, but we found a nice mix of tourists and Italians...

Although this resteraunt is about 15kms outside of LUCCA the drive or taxi is worth the effort. Great atmosphere at this family run venue. The setting is special and the whole experience is rural Toscana with exceptional food. The quality of the pasts is very special, so thin and tasty. The menu reflects local food and a seperate menu covers... More

While it took a bit to find this outstanding restaurant, the 10 us arrived at our appointed reservation time and were well rewarded for our due diligence. there is a reason this is the top rated restaurant on TA in the Lucca area and it is not just because of it's storied past. The service was excellent, the food fresh,... More

We have been coming to Italy for 30 years. This place is amazing. Great owners and staff. Wonderful food. The toast lamb and the cold sliced veal. With tuna sauce were excellent.

Whilst spending a week near Lucca on the strength of the trip advisor reviews we decided to take a trip to this restaurant nestled in beautiful setting beside the river - a little hard to find but the moment you set foot inside you are very well looked after indeed by the attentive and friendly staff ready to explain anything...

We first visited this restaurant in 2013 after reading Trip Advisor reviews & were so impressed that we re-visited on 2 consecutive nights in June 2014. The food is simply divine. The Pappa al pomodoro (soup) is so good I had it both nights, while my husband ate pasta each night. We both had fillet steak on the 1st night... More

We were staying in the area for five weeks and dined at this example of superb dining four times and have brought friends and family each occasion. Each time, we were treated like family and the service is top rate only to be out done by the fine food. For the steak lovers, get the T-Bone for one or two... More
