One of the best meals I have had in Italy. We had a wide range of dishes and each was superb. I can particularity recommend the spagghetoni as a starter. You don't need to look further than the house wine.

Antica Locanda Di Sesto is quite exceptional in setting ablaze the tastebuds, long after the meal has come and gone. As another reviewer has said, the fillet with Rosemary and black peppercorn is legendary. Easily one of the superb dishes of my well travelled palate....More

This place is a little outside of Lucca, but well worth the drive. The food is great and they have the service to match it. We'll be back the next time we go to Lucca

The Antica Locanda is located in a big house on a small Piazza. It calls itself traditional, and that's just what it is. (In my opinion, it might be leaning a bit too much on the conservative side, and could use some fresh influences.) However:...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*
