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 service was expert, the food was amazingly fresh & delicious and the atmosphere had positive energy. I ordered the Escarole Soup & meatballs with ricotta and basil and my husband ordered the Wedding Soup & the #5 Sandwich (Mortadella, Prosciutto, Soppressata & fresh Mozzarella!) The courses arrived promptly by a very pleasant, congenial server, Sergio. After we slowly consumed... More

Touch of Italy is a great Italian deli and restaurant that worth a visit! The food is outstanding and we frequent the place quite often!

Looking for an authentic Italian family restaurant? Touch of Italy is the real deal! Delicious overstuffed sandwiches. My favorite is the dante with grilled eggplant, roasted red peppers, grilled olives, marinated mushrooms, artichokes, and cheese all stuffed into a monster size homemade sub roll. Also love the escarole and white bean soup, just like Granny's! Gotta say the lasagna is... More

My husband and I have a second home in Delaware so we're in the area quite often. When we're there we go to Touch of Italy every 3 days. The food is very good and being from the New York metropolitan area, we know Italian food. The staff is wonderful. They're welcoming, polite and go out of their way to... More

Touch of Italy in Lewes, Delaware is a favorite spot for us. To us they have the best pizza being made in the small oven with hot coals makes pizza the old traditional way. I had their Italian wedding soup which was wonderful. Their home made italian breads, cookies, and eclairs are exceptional. The deli is filled with many different... More

We had lunch here for my birthday and it was awesome. A great stop to chill out & enjoy some great food & wine. Small place but that adds to the atmosphere. We had our kids with but they are older, doesn't seem good for young kids. Also a good couples or get together with friends place. I highly recommend... More

In season this place must be crazy busy. Even midweek in winter we got the last table. You eat surrounded by a deli but clearly not deli food. Excellent olive bread with fresh made ricotta, Caesar salad, fresh pasta, fish, chicken, veal, beef entrees, half price wines certain nights. All served efficiently and pleasantly by our server, Ashley. Great little... More

My husband and I traveled to Italy for 10 days this past Fall, and have been craving the freshness of Italian cuisine ever since. We were shopping in Rehoboth, and discovered this little place in nearby Lewes using Trip advisor. My, are we glad we found it! From the hanging fresh meats, counter deli, small intimate tables, and the filled... More

After reading a few reviews it seem as a bad review gets a FREE meal.....ummm. Nah, can't do it. As somewhat a regular, every month or two, we enjoy Touch of Italy for all they offer. The aroma, food, service, and atmosphere are just great. They always have plenty of staff who are polite and friendly.
