One of the things I love about living in San Francisco is that we live close to the most amazing italian deli. Lucca Ravioli opened in 1925 (almost 15 years after the big earthquake and fires) and it has stayed largely the same. The exterior and interior feels like you’ve stepped back in time. And everything is so charming but it feels authentic like they aren’t trying to be cute. They famously make fresh raviolis everyday and the packaging is still the same from back in the 50’s, it is beautiful. They have a deli with sandwiches but don’t have a sandwich menu. It’s only meat and cheese. They tie up your food with red and white bakers twine (they’ve been doing it way before it was cool.) And they always give kids a breadstick and a Lucca paper hat. It is near my kids school so I love stopping by to pick up fresh raviolis for dinner or we stop in and pick up some charcuterie and cheese for a little italian picnic at Dolores park. Do you have an authentic Italian deli where you live?
