Lucca Delicatessen in San Francisco, CA

Lucca Delicatessen was opened in 1929 by our Grandfather Mike Bosco along with his partners, chef Maggiore Colona, and Italo Cencini.

If you walked into Lucca’s then you would have seen the salami hanging from the ceiling and wheels of cheeses aging in the same rack we have today — as well as a hot-food line, male-only clerks in ties and white gowns, housewives crowded around the counter (there was no number system!) and perhaps even a mortadella-stuffed pig in the window for sale by the slice!

Our ravioli were sold to the Fairmont Hotel and were made by hand exactly as we do today – without the use of a machine – making them lighter and more tender than anyone else’s.
