As most locals know, Little Lucca’s in one of our most favorite sandwich shops so it was good to see it earn high marks once again this year. The Bold Italic has rated Little Lucca as a BONUS at number 17 which is pretty good especially considering Adrian Spinelli’s feature was on San Francisco sandwich joints.
Adrian writes ‘San Francisco is #blessed with some of the finest sandwich shops in all of the land, thanks in part to the blend of cultures that are so close to each other geographically. You could take a leisurely stroll to North Beach for a classic Italian number-one day and hit the FIDI for roast-beef amazingness for the second. You can stop at a signature Jewish deli in Nob Hill or walk another few blocks to a place with “the best Vietnamese sandwich in America.” There are Korean steak subs in the Mission, and the turkey sandwich of your life is a stone’s throw away from Golden Gate Park. Is your mouth watering yet?’
He then goes on to critique some great local places in the city and comes to our Little Lucca’s at the end of his list as a BONUS.
‘A bonus listing here outside of SF, Little Lucca’s in South City is in a small house with a deck that looks like it’d be right out of Rainey Street in Austin. The sandwiches are absolutely massive and come with a unique marriage of hot pepper sauce and what they claim to be the “original” garlic sauce. If you find yourself down on the peninsula, stop in for a Lucca Combo (mortadella, ham, and salami) or a Lucca’s Chipotle Bird (chipotle turkey, bacon, cheddar cheese, vidalia onion dressing, and roasted red peppers). You won’t be disappointed. ‘
This past July KQED’s A Guide to the Best Sandwiches in the Bay Area ‘ Everything South City has done several pieces on Little Lucca’s and can attest to the fact this place is loved by locals and visitors alike. Welcome to our world Adrian! And thanks for the shout outs and for the recommendations of all the other great local places in the City.
