We've been getting sandwiches at Lucca's for years now and they are always delicious! This is my boys first choice whenever we let them pick a sandwich place. Deli meat and prepared frozen dishes are wonderful too. A local gem!

I love this place. I can find all of the ingredients I need to make fresh sauce as well as Italian deli meats. All of their sandwiches are delicious.

All of the staff are ready to make the sandwich that will make you happy. Parking isn't too bad, street or in the B of A lot for a quick stop. I usually buy some Torrane (candy) for my brother in law (and me) when I go there.

Great local Deli. Standard variety Italian Sandwhiches, but executed quite well. They were not skimpy on the meat either. I'd call an order in on the phone first, then make your way over to pick it up. They give you options, and these are hand-crafted, thus, it takes a little time. A+ from me!

Luccas is the place to go for a fabulous deli sandwich. Their lasagna take away ain't bad either. This has been a gold standard for decadent delicatessen eating for decades. But we recently used them to cater two funerals and they were fabulous and generous with their portions. Wonderful people. Quality food at a great value.

Our family has been coming here since 1957. While this store has changed over the years, the cold meats are still of good quality and the sandwiches are tasty. My favorite is the Italian combo with lots of meat and cheese and made to order.

This is a great deli. It was recommended to me and the sandwiches are huge. The only issue is the wait time. over 20 minutes. You take a number and wait but when they do call your number they make great sandwiches. Huge and with care. The smart people call in large orders and pick up. They have nearly 7... More

I've just had a delicious peppered turkey sandwich at Lucca's. I have been a customer of theirs for many, many years. Their sandwiches are always very good, and prepared with pride. Fine, professional staff behind the counter. In addition to sandwiches Lucca's carries many other items, including frozen soups and frozen meat and pasta dishes. I'm a big fan of... More
