Their pastrami and potato salad are our favorite from Lucca's Deli! They also have a good selection of cold cuts if you prefer to make your own sandwich.

The wait is a little longer than the franchise sandwich shop, but it's worth the wait. Sandwiches tastes like something you'd make at home. We've also tried the lasagnas and found them to be tasty too!

They actually put meat on your sandwich that you can see (most places put way too little meat on that you can hardly see it). But they have other goodies, like spaghetti already made up. Just heat at home. Its delicious!!!

Luccas deli is the best in Castro Valley. The women are friendly, and the sandwiches are fresh and made to order. I recently went there and also found fresh pesto, grated cheeses and homemade soups prepared every morning. I recommend these foods over anything at Trader Joes or Safeway.

For over 35 years I have enjoyed the best sandwichs on the Peninsula from Little Luccas. Housed in the last post WW2 row houses on El Camino you can your favorite get meat. Cheese and produce served with their pesto and garlic sauce. It's the best. I highly recommend the salami and cheese or the turkey and avacodo. The price... More

Great sandwiches, made-to-order, as well as a variety of cold cuts, deli platters, candy and drinks. Make sure to call your order in ~20min ahead of time so that you don't need to wait in line!

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!
