“Comfortable room and very good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We stayed 1 night in one of the 2 (larger) rooms in the annex building. The room was very comfortable, all amenities present and excellent beds.
Location is in rural area close to Pisa, ideal to visit the city.
Another reason to visit the Locanda is to have dinner in the family-run restaurant. Superb local food and lots of wines to choose from.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

As a general rule, we always stay at 5 star or 4+ star hotels.

This was a total stab in the dark based upon reading trip advisor and we were not disappointed.

Firstly you have to realise that this is a restaurant with rooms. The rooms are very pleasant and the beds are extremely comfortable.

We stayed in the green room and the bathroom probably could have been a bit better, but for a 3 night stay it was more than adequate.

The restaurant is simply superb in terms both of the food offered and the standards of service, worthy of any 5 star establishment.

Luca, Nicola and the rest of the team work very hard to give you a great dining experience.

If you visit in the summer, there is plenty of outdoor seating - however there is no bar or lounge area to use if it’s raining (and the Prosecco in the mini bar sadly is sweet Asti !!)

So would I recommend this place? – well if a comfortable bed to sleep in and a great place to eat are top of your list then yes – if you want somewhere with a bar and a lounge then no.

PS – it is less than 10 minutes to get into Pisa from this location (and only 15 kms or so to Lucca) – if I was looking for an ideal base for two or three days in the area, and was also looking for great value for money, then Locanda Sant’Agata ticked all the boxes.

If I compare this to other recent stays in Italy, then just on a simple cost basis, I spent the same on dinner, bed and breakfast here as I spent on just bed and breakfast elsewhere (so you could say that we effectively consumed fine food for free).

Locanda sant'Agata offers good value for money: a comfortable room with nice amenities near Pisa and very convenient as it is right on the road that leads to Lucca and the autostrada. They also have a dining room that offers a full breakfast that is included in the price of the room. Well worth the price. It is not a luxurious accommodation but at these affordable prices that is not expected.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the larger rooms,as the regular double is quite small.

My wife stayed here for two nights during a 'road trip' of Italy and France in August 13. The setting is stunning, rural views of the mountains, but close enough to Pisa and Luca. When we arrived the welcome was warm and our cases were taken to our room on the first floor. The room was well equipped and and the bed comfortable. Breakfast is excellent with a large array of cold and hot food options The very best part of our stay was dining. The food a superb, may be a little expensive, but you pay for quality. The owners son was very attentive and enjoyed explaining the wine options and provided a wide range of choice. Overall a very relaxing stay. Can't wait to go back again

I booked here only because of the excellent ratings, for which few places get. I was not disappointed , the staff are all family and treat you as a visitor to their home. Rooms were clean and functional, and nothing is dated or old. The food in the restaurant was superb, and we eat there every night. The service overall was A plus.

Everything was excellent.

My Mom and I spent two nights here (one on our way to Orvieto, and one on our way back). It was our first trip to Italy and we were a little nervous about the experience, especially because we were arriving at 10pm into a country whose language we don't speak. We asked Luca and family for a ride from the airport (we emailed them as a complete "shot in the dark" request), and they responded very quickly and agreed to pick us up! It was a HUGE relief!! Nicola transported us to the resort where we fell in love with our room! The beds were AMAZING!! Best beds we had in Europe! Thankfully they have a restaurant on-site, so we could eat upon our arrival. Food was very tasty! The next morning, Luca took us to the train station as we were headed South. We were so impressed that we stayed there on our way back. We sat in the garden/lawn and the staff brought us delicious wine and snacks - everyone was very nice and accommodating (and it didn't hurt that almost everyone spoke great English!). I would recommend this place to anyone stopping in Pisa!

We stayed in the granary with our two kids. The room was very big and comfortable for the four of us. Very friendly people, great restaurant and delicious breakfast. The setting is beautiful and very convenient to visit Pisa and Lucca and the beaches. We even had dinner outside our room whilst the kids were in bed! That was just such a nice touch. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
