Very smart restaurant. Excellent food. Steaks and Goose were really good qualify. Spaghettoni with Pecorino was prepared at the table and was a highlight of our meals (if you like strong cheese flavours). Little extras made a real difference: Prosecco welcome drink, amuse bouche, free...More

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 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*
