The sandwiches are great. Big and tasty! They have lots of choices and some very hard working sandwich creators. I assume I'll have to wait in line so I'm never disappointed when I see its out the door. (This place is so tiny, it doesn't take too many people to be "out the door." ) I have met some enjoyable...

I've been here more Times than I can count. It is by far my favorite sandwich place of all time. It's about 9 or 10 bucks a sandwhich but they are huge and can easily feed two people. They only have outside seating available. The down side is.... The waiting line, sometimes a 30 minute wait or more. Worth it... More

I haven't had a bad sandwich from this place. It is best to order and leave, though, because there isn't much in the way of seating (only picnic tables outside).

The sandwiches are wonderfully too big for the money. The garlic sauce is out of this world. Every sandwich comes with this sauce. Do not be in a hurry because the lines are always outside of this small story. It is a great deal for the price and wait!

I've been going to Little Lucca for 30 years on and off. It's a small little house that gives oversized sandwiches. That special spread is no other and makes all the difference. Their bread is delicious and whatever you choose to place inside them will not disappoint. The amount of sliced deli meats is crazy. I have a hard time... More

This is not a restaurant; it is a sandwich shop. I grew up in this town and remember when Little Lucca's was actually a house someone lived in. Don't let that fool you though; it is a tiny place, enough for the staff to have their meats and counter to make their sandwiches and room for a line, because there... More

I grew up in Daly City, but moved away as a teenager. I have fond memories of visiting Little Lucca for one of their awesome sandwiches! Since then, I have been to San Francisco a number of times, but never had the opportunity to go back to Little Lucca's, until just recently. Nothing has changed!! And that is a good... More

Although there is always a line, it's worth the wait if you desiring a good sandwich! Every kind and anything on them. On a diet, it's the wrong place!

the best sandwiches in the world, but the worst and slowest service in the world, the other little lucca shop is in Millbrae the same food and excellent service, it is actually faster the drive to Millbrae and get the food than wait for a sandwich here. but the food is great

Great sandwiches when your in a hurry and you don't feel too guilty when your done. They could have some more seating, but I guest it's more of a pick up and go place. No the less I'd come here again and refer to friends.
