Whoever said that Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth has never been to Lucca's.

No visit to SF is complete without a stop at Lucca's.

From the lunchmeat to the rolls to the sausages to the focaccia to the soda selection, and everything in between - it's all good!

I've been going to Lucca's for over 30 years, since I was a kid, and would go there with a dollar, and get a roll for about 30 cents, and salame or coppa with the rest of the dollar. Yum!

The hot coppa here is reasonably priced and delicious! Love the regular coppa, salame, hot salame, and most of the other meats. All very good, and very reasonably-priced.

The rolls are excellent. Whichever kind you choose, you can't go wrong.

The hot Italian sausages are great! The price is very good, too! Excellent price for the quality.

The Focaccia - yum! Also the pizza with Italian sausage. These are good cold, and even better heated up - preferably in a toaster oven.

The service is good. Most of these guys have been there a LONG time.
It gets very busy at lunch time, but with good reason, and the wait is worth it.

To top it all off, they have a parking lot! Now, how many places in the Mission have their own free parking?

All I can say is, native or visitor, you need to go here, and make your mouth happy.

Busy yet friendly staff. Homemade pesto is fabulous. They will slice meats to order and have hard to find delicacies for foodies

What a gem and such a great SF treat. Everything you need for a great Italian meal resides in the four walls of Lucca Raviloi! Their ravis are fabulous.....One of my favs is the pumpkin (with a sage butter sauce - yum!). They have all of the old Italian cookies my maternal grandparents use to have in their home...like a walk through memory lane for me! Great imported and some hard to find Italian food items and appealing to those Argentine Italians, they have lots of different kinds of Mate and Dulce de Leche! Yum!!!!

best ravioli in the city PERIOD.
great memories of this place as a child, a big part of san francisco culture.
BUt has become just a tad over priced. its too easy to drop 100 bucks in there.
very authentic, my mom grew up with the men that run the place, goes back generations.
everyone has caught on over the years that this place is no longer a hidden gem.
and parking is very difficult.
I remember the guy would always giving me bread sticks there as a child, yum!
great wines, pizza, everything!
