From the outside, Lucca looks like a tiny Italian deli that got lost on its way over to Columbus Avenue. But it doesn’t matter where this place is located—it’s a sandwich temple. The deli is usually pretty packed in the middle of the day, with people ordering lunch, trays of meatballs, or groceries like olive oil or crackers, but the chaos is worth it to get their impeccable sandwiches (order ahead online if you don’t want to wait). The Italian combo and caprese sandwiches with sliced meats (always add prosciutto) are the way to go.
