Thassa lotta Raviolis

Lucca's is a San Francisco institution: The Italian deli has been a family-run business for almost one hundred years. Current proprietor Michael Feno has made the store part of his daily life for over 50 years.
Now, however, there is no one in the family who wants to take on the store. Feno is finally ready to retire, and his son has a career of his own, unrelated to Lucca's Ravioli Co.

This portion of Mission District land is zoned as NCT, which stands for Neighborhood Commercial Transit district zoning.
Thus, the buildings could be transformed and rented as "restaurants, bars, art galleries, cafes, boutique shopping destinations, personal and professional service provider [offices], entertainment/music venues, [and/or] performing art spaces."

But, if you want to buy, bring hard American dollars, no lira!


  1. I've been there. It's not just the food, it's the smell and that alone elevates the place to near heaven.

  2. It's not only the basic old fashioned American independent culture that's rapidly eroding, it's the material things that represent that entrepreneurial spirit that are going as well. This building will likely become an Apple products Store.....SAD!

  3. Remember everyone... you didn't build that!!!!

    Coming from someone raised in a family owned business. Yes hell we did. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
