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.

restaurant, deli for takeout and a cute bar area. Place is crazy busy all the time, so be prepared to wait no matter what time of day. Food is always very good, whether a salad, entree, sandwich or pizza. Would like to be able to add lettuce to my sandwich upon request, but that option is not available. Service is... More

After spending $80 on dinner for two, the only memorable thing was the terrible service and the unbelievably bland food. Upon entering, the authentic deli and dessert counter gave us high hopes. But then what they count for service started. Everything--everything--took a ridiculous amount of time. Although they were busy, there wasn't a back up for tables, so I'm not... More

This is worth the $$. Great food served by an excellent server. We shared the pasta and an appitizer. The server accomodated our requests to share both items. Number one rating is correct. Made me think I was in Italy.

My husband and I went to Touch of Italy for our final diner of our vacation in the Rehoboth Area. What a wonderful dining experience. We were fortunate enough to be seated in the wine cellar area and as luck would have it we were alone, what a plus! We ordered the eggplant rolatini for an appetizer, perfect in every... More

My daughter will tell anyone who asks the Alfredo here is the best she has ever had. While there is often a wait (no reservations) the wait is always worth it and the service always makes you feel welcome. The wine list is pretty extensive for such a small and unassuming place. Everything we've ever ordered here fresh and delicious.... More

We had to wait to get a table, but it was so worth it. We shared a platter of antipasto - cold cuts, cheeses, olives and they were excellent. My daughter's pasta with pesto was perfect, my husband had chicken and sausage and they were delicious with perfectly sautéed vegetables, my daughter's boyfriend's thin crust pizza was excellent also. But... More

The service and food was absolutely delicious. The chicken Parmesan was incredible. The deserts are to die for. It's a must visit when you are in Lewes!
