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.

What a relief to have good quality Italian food available in Southern Delaware. Worth the prices. A little costly.

The food at Touch of Italy is fantastic. I went to NY to little Italy and the food at Touch of Italy takes me back to that trip.

Having been lucky enough to be brought up in northern NJ, where Italian food is ubiquitous, I am spoiled. Well, who would have thought I would have the best Italian food I have ever eaten in Delaware of all places. Touch of Italy is a gem. An Italian deli/restaurant combination with a few tables for maybe 20-25 people, cozy with... More

We had gone to Lewes to attend the local craft fair and after checking it out we're ready for a late lunch. Many of the towns restaurants are pretentious and even this one has a bit but the food and the deli counter tell you the truth they know what they are doing. My wife and I ordered two sandwiches,...

We enjoyed lunch here. Our menu choices were the caprese salad and pizza. Both were outstanding. Three of us shared the caprese salad. It was the best I have ever had. Outstanding cheese, basil and deliciously fresh tomatoes. Mmm, good! The brick oven pizza was also a 10. Service was outstanding. The three of us split an eclair (thank you... More

Love love love their pizza. Always stop here on the way home. They open for lunch at 11am, we get there at 1115 to order pizza. We're told they are just starting up their oven and they won't be ready for another hour or more. Seriously?!?? Why open for lunch if you can't serve what's on the menu.

Thank you for taking the time to write in. Actually I had heard about this unusual circumstance. Almost every day our pizza oven is ready at 11:30. You are correct, it was not ready one day last week. As you can well imagine we definitely want to be ready to sever our customers when they come in, but this is... More
