“Great Little Lunch Spot”
Review of Lovecchio's Deli

Lovecchio's Deli
Ranked #1 of 3 Restaurants in Norco

Restaurant details

Great little lunch spot in an area with limited choices. I had never heard of Lovecchio's until they moved to Norco, but everyone I talked to who knew them in Lakeview raves about how good it was and tells me they have the same menu. So, if you knew them then, you'll like them now, too.

Great po-boys on Liedenheimer bread (good crusty New Orleans french bread). Every variety I've had here is good, and they've got a huge variety. The shrimp is better than most - no popcorn shrimp here. The meatball, Regency, and roast beef po-boys are all "ten napkin" affairs. You might even need a bib. Very good and very juicy.

There are also good, hefty plate lunches every day (lasagna, chicken parm - good home style meals) and salads and wraps if you want to pretend to eat healthy.

Hot, fresh, crispy fries and waffle cut sweet potato fries. Bottled soda (i.e. no free refills - but you were trying to cut back on soda anyway, right?). If you're really thirsty, the tea is a better choice.

Parking is very limited. You can park at the abandoned bank building across the street (be careful crossing the street), but do NOT park at the sketchy sandwich shop over there (you might get towed).

Call ahead if you are in a hurry. Service is not slow, but it gets busy in this place. Seating is also a bit limited, but you can get it to-go, too. It's worth it.

Homecooked food. Friendly quick service. Daily specials, plus standard Po-boys and deli lunch choices.

Only drawback is they don't do AMEX.

We had the oysters with catfish and it was very tasty with a small salad. I remember when this place was in Lakeview before Katrina and the 12 ft of water but now they moved out to NORCO and ran into the place as a quick business lunch. Great grounded, relaxing restaurant and great service.

Service here is friendly and very prompt. Their plate lunches remind you of home (grandma). There's plenty on the plate, and for a good price. Really enjoy eating here - great neighborhood diner.

I've tried muffulettas from all over New Orleans and Louisiana and the one here surpasses them by a mile! Central Grocery is garbage compared to Lovecchio's. I eat here pretty often since I work at a nearby refinery and I have never been disappointed by any of their menu options. Their lasagna is 2nd best to the recipe my old Italian grandma passed to me.
