WILMINGTON, MA — Have you ever hard an Italian Sub from Lucci’s? If not, you’re missing out!
On Friday, The Hill-Man Morning Show on WAAF 107.3 invited in several sandwich shops and delis from across the state to compete for the honor of ‘Best Italian Sub in Massachusetts’ in recognition of National Cold Cut Day.
After a blind tasting from a panel of guest judges — including Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask — Wilmington’s very own Lucci’s was the clearcut winner, defeating the likes of Dom’s in Waltham, Regatta in Worcester, Lambert’s in Westwood, and New Deal in Revere.
Steve Anderson, Lucci’s Deli Manager, was on hand to prepare the sub.
The sub consisted of fresh Piantedosi Bread with Mortadella, Genovese Salami, Hot Ham, Mild Provolone, loaded up with Vegetables, Fresh Olive Oil, Seasonings, and Chopped Up Peppers.
Anderson credited the bread for the victory. Several judges raved about the peppers.
“[The Bruins] practiced in Wilmington forever and we never had this sub,” remarked Rask, who cast his vote in favor of Lucci’s sub, calling it “the best Italian sub I ever had.”
