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.
