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.

This spot was a good choice to grab a bite as we finished our time walking around Lewes. We grabbed a table outside and order a meatball for our two year old, an Italiano for myself and my wife had the chicken parm hero. All three were really good, the heroes were stuffed well! Great bread! Next time I would... More

We were vacationing for a couple days in Lewes. Went the based on the reviews and we were very happy we did. We were greeted at the door by a young lady with a welcoming smile. We did not have a reservation and were told we'd have a 10 minute wait. We went over to the bar and ordered a... More

Wow! We just visited Lewes with friends who recommended we MUST go to the Touch of Italy for lunch! I am so glad we did! This place was as if you just walked off the streets of Italy and entering one of the many shoppes there! You can order your favorite Italian meats, cheeses or desserts or sit and enjoy... More

Wow this Italian restaurant was superb. The atmosphere is teeny but quaint and noisy. You sit amongst the huge deli order area and a very tiny bar. The food was delicious & bakery items tasty. Fish was fantastic!

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at how awesome the food was at Touch of Italy. It is very quaint with limited seating, but the food is excellent! The first night we were there we ordered the pizza and salad and they were both excellent! We made a decision that night that we had to come back before our... More

What a surprise visit to this location on Friday, July 3rd. With the holiday crowd, we were expecting maybe a longer wait time, but we stopped in early afternoon, around 2:30, and we were greeted by a happy hostess and got a table right away. The waitress was pleasant, very quick with our drinks and was very helpful about making... More

We dined in the Lewes location, very small but a lot of atmosphere. Not much seating so get there early. We've been there several times and never disappointed. Great staff and the food is excellent.

This place got my son to eat a margarita pizza, nuff said as far as I am concerned. I had a chicken cutlet sandwich with broccli rab and roasted peppers that was both delicious and big enough to be lunch twice.
