Great Italian deli

Lucca's Deli has great sandwiches. Their meat and bread are always fresh. I've been going to this deli for over 35+ years and it's always consistently good.

A very generously made sandwich. Served on the freshest bread. Also offers take out lasagnas and other dinner entrees. Love this little italian gem.

It is the best sandwich I have had anywhere in the area. I luv the sourdough roll with salami and prosciutto and .cheese. Their take out sauces, and salads are good. Plus you can eat inside if you like. .

It has been quite a few years since coming to Lucca's and it was a family tradition then. The staff are very nice but that is where it ends. The bread was mediocre-maybe due to the end of the day?- and all the cheeses we chose were processed unbeknownst to us. The salads were mediocre at best with much needed... More

I am sure the deli meats and items they prepare are of the same quality as in the 60's when I first started coming there, but the Foccacia and pasta are no longer made there, so very disappointing. still a better place to get a sandwich than the chain stores and sandwich places.

You can design your own sandwiches, which makes for a nice touch. I had the chicken salad and my partner had a turkey sandwich. Both excellent. Staff was pleasant and efficient. They kept the line moving. There is ample space inside and out to sit and enjoy your meal.

I have been going to Lucca's since the now $7.00 roast beef sandwich was 60 cents in the mid 1960s. The quality is still there although I would really like them to have "real" roasted turkey instead of the processed "prechewed" stuff. They have a great selection of meats , cheeses and salads. Calling and ordering ahead really cuts the... More
