We have been visiting Lucca for many years without discovering Antica Locanda di Sesto. It's so good we dined there twice. Apparently the entire family is involved in this well-run restaurant along with their trusted neighbors on local farms who supply most of the ingredients. Our dinner began with outstanding raviolis and then moved on to chingale, wild boar, which... More

Absolutely Brilliant, selective locally sourced produce that is subtly unique. Love the way they prepared the pasta within the wheel of the Padano/Pecorino blended cheese

. . . or any other day (except Saturday: closed). Sunday lunch is especially wonderful, and Easter Sunday the best of all. You will find happy, hungry, delightful Italian families enjoying the food, the restaurant, and each other. English is spoken and the menu is in both English and Italian. Eating here, as we have many, many times, is just... More

This is an EXCELLENT restaurant, just about 20 minutes outside the walls of Lucca, The homemade pastas are all excellent - but certainly try whatever they are featuring as the seasonal favorite... Today was tagliolini with wild asparagus... Delicious. Their Tordelli (Tortelli, in the Lucchese dialect) are incredible - so good, that after we finished the first round, we ordered... More

The claims made for this restaurant are impressive;and it totally lives up to them. My party of four all enjoyed a splendid meal, and the ambience and service were equally impressive. The wine (their own) was delicious and really not too highly priced. I'm glad I wasn't driving as finding the restaurant was a bit complicated, and we had to... More

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*
