Lucca’s Deli is my families favorite ‘go to’ for deli sandwiches in Castro Valley. Always delicious with very generous portions. Sandwiches are customized with high quality breads, meats and cheeses.

I’m not a sandwich or deli person, but come here for their delicious lasagnas! We love them! So much better than Costco stuff! 😬

Lucca’s Italian Deli provides inexpensive and great quality food for parties and gatherings. We loved their Marsala Chicken dish which provides a main dish for 8 to 10 people. We ordered 2 to serve about 18 guests. They also provide excellent side dishes and pasta...More

You will not find better meats/charcuterie and sandwiches in town. Throw in some quality Italian food in the refrigerated section and you can’t go wrong.

This sandwich shop has been around many years. They offer fresh selection of deli meats & cheese. It’s faster if you call in your order ahead, they are very popular so it tends to be busy. Definitely my favorite Deli!!

Need a sandwich. Tired of Subway, Togos. My daughters and I recommend Castro Valley's not-so-secret deli gem, Lucca's Deli. I don't always eat sandwiches, my friends, but when I do I prefer Lucca's. Other options are close at hand, but real prosciutto, real turkey, real...More
