Description: Touch of Italy was born out of two Italian family traditions that trace back to the late 1800's. These two families trace their roots to the beautiful Marche and Abruzzo regions in Central Italy, where one can find rich cultural traditions and recipes passed down from generation to generation. Touch of Italy first opened in the fall of 2010 in Lewes, Delaware and proudly runs five locations in Ocean City, Lewes and Rehoboth Beach, serving fresh items like handmade mozzarella cheese, pasta, pizza, cookies and crispy bread, as well as high quality imported items from Italy. Touch of Italy is proud to bring the Italian tradition to costal Delaware and Maryland, and pay tribute to our ancestors, who imparted to us a love of food and family.

The smell when you walk in brings back so many childhood memories. Fresh cheese, the kitchen... The food is very good and the service always good.

We were in Italy in May; then we returned in October in Delaware. Not really, but the food and atmosphere at Touch of Italy was the same as in Rome and Naples. Real olive oil, real balsamic vinegar, real homemade soup, real Italian meat...plus the wine and beer match well. This is more than a touch of Italy...it's close to... More

There are two restaurants. The Lewes restaurant has a deli counter and deserts. It is small and cozy. This is the best of the two locations. The other is near the Rehoboth outlets and is more modern. The modern store loses something as far as atmosphere. Dishes that we love are the stacked eggplant, meatballs and pizza (all). We have... More

We visit Lewes several times a year. We've been here many times and LOVE it! The service is perfect and the food is great. We also love the deli part and grab some olives, smoked moz. cheese and desserts to go. It's delicious and has a super friendly, welcoming, happy vibe!

I have had dinners there on three occasions actually, but just now decided to write a review. I am so delighted to go back again and again. They serve some of the best authentic Italian cuisine anywhere, not just in Lewes and Rehoboth Beach. That includes the many Italian restaurants that I have been to in Baltimore and NY, recently....

This was our favorite place to eat out during our week in Lewes in October. Fast, reasonably priced, friendly and good wine. We will be back!

Touch of Italy has to be one of my favorites in the beach area. Their Route One location across from Tanger outlets is beautiful inside. You can't order a bad meal here. The pizza's are delicious. The ravioli appetizer is one of my favorites. My sons love the sandwiches made with delicious Italian meats and cheeses. The ingredients used in... More

Want a quick, nice pizza to go? Stop here- this is the place for pizza in Lewes "town". Not offering you a fancy gourmet style, just a good decent thin crust pie, nice sauce and the sausage was tasty. We called it in at near closing time and it was ready in 15 minutes! Definitely have to stop back and... More
