Salamis and garlic braids hanging above the long counter have helped give this deli its old-world ambiance since 1962. Lucca sells a vast number of sandwiches, along with Italian and American sodas to wash them down. The bowtie-pasta pesto salad is fresh, with bits of sundried tomato and whole pine nuts; like the other sides and entrees, it's made on the premises by owner Syavash Alaee and his staff. The ready-made take-home soups and entrees are complemented by lots of imported and domestic pasta, wine, sauce, oil and condiment brands, not to mention the little boxed Italian nougats that fascinate kids the world over. Lucca has a large seating area for customers to enjoy a relaxing lunch.
