Perched on the corner of 22nd and Valencia streets since 1925, Lucca Ravioli Co. has held its own amidst the ever-changing and growing Mission foodie scene as the neighborhood authentic Italian grocery armed with gourmet imported goods. A main export through its doors? The simple yet hugely flavorful sandwiches, cheeses and lunch meats that have topped innumerable picnic blankets a few minutes away at Dolores Park.
