Great sandwich, but a tad too moist

The sandwiches contents are tasty and plentiful. The sauce is good, but it can make your sandwich bread soggy pretty fast - less than 5 minutes and it was difficult to handle. Lines are long, but they move at a decent clip. It's worth going back, but I would ask for less of their special sauce... read more

There's always a long line at this tiny sandwich shop. If you're not in a hurry to eat lunch...err...very late lunch, then it's worth the wait. Their sandwiches are really delicious and soooo huge that you have to share. There's no way you can finish it all in one sitting or all by yourself. Hats off to the ones that... More

Awesome spread-- enough said. The sandwiches are absolutely delicious. Dutch crunch is my favorite-- always fresh. :-)

High Quality everything. If you can eat an entire sub sandwich from Little Lucca, you ar THE MAN. A South San Francisco tradition - literally for years on end - and that says a LOT.

It's located in South San Francisco and they make amazing Vietnamese sandwiches and other dishes as well. Price is super reasonable and food is excellent.

Little Lucca's is not much to look at, but there is a reason why there is always a line out the door to get in. It's the BEST little sandwich shop in South City. Is the wait worth it? Damn Straight, or there wouldn't be a line everyday. Anyone who lives in South City knows this is the place to... More

Great sandwiches that are huge. Only drawback is that it's a small shop and because each sandwich is made to order, the line can be daunting.

Hands down. This place has the best sandwiches in town. I know someone that will actually fly his private plane in from Las Vegas just to enjoy one speaks for itself.
