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.

I run my own Italian food based business in the UK and when I had been recommended to visit this place by some fellow hospitality people who were mad keen for good and authentic Italian cuisine, I just had to try.

Fantastic food, fantastic service and fantastic ambience. Just go!! Outside of Old Lucca, but definitely worth a visit. You will find yourself in your grandma's home, since the main entrance - when the food scents will welcome you.

Our second visit was just as good as out first 5 years ago. Lovely rooms, very exciting menu options from a professional team of family members. The steak is great, the pastas awesome! Not many tourists, so sshhh! , keep it quiet.

We ate here with a group of 11 people. It is not easy to accommodate a group of that size, but our service was excellent. 6 of us had steak, and it was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Being from Texas, we don't have a shortage of good steakhouses. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who... More

I love this restaurant. It is run by a lovely family who take great pride in all they do. The food is delicious and locally sourced. They make their own wine and olive oil plus their home made biscotti are to die for. You can't beat the cinghiale (wild boar) or their bistecca fiorentina. It's about 10 minutes from Lucca,... More

My partner booked ahead and took me here for my birthday, and I was not disappointed! We had lovely pasta to start and then shared the slices of steak. All the food was delicious. I was brought out a replacement side when my preference was no longer available, which I wasn't warned about, but I wasn't that bothered. The service... More

All the positive reviews created expectations that, by far, have not been met. We made a reservation for 2 in advance. First we were appointed a table in a room where there were only empty tables. I noticed that in the main area ( where all the people were) there were at least 3 tables for 2 available. Only after... More

My wife and I finally made it to Antica Locanda di Sesto after our GPS took us down a dirt road into a vineyard. But that's another story. We were greeted warmly, our reserved table was still waiting, and we were seated and given a complimentary glass of prosecco. Now settled down, we began to enjoy the exceptional service of... More
