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.

We had stayed in Lewes for Summer Vacation twice and never ate at the Touch of Italy because it always looked like a pizzeria from the outside. While down for a day trip we decided to try it out. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it was much more. Not only was it a full Italian deli and take... More

We had to wait but it was worth it. Food was fresh, plentiful and delicious. Staff were attentive and helpful. Deserves its position as #1 restaurant in Lewes.

I enjoyed the seafood pasta while he had a pasta dish with a cream sauce that he enjoyed 100%. Our service was excellent and as usual the meal... More

Love eating and shopping here! We couldn't get a table but ordered food and took it outside. One sandwich will feed two people! We took home meats, cheeses and bread.

As a local Lewes resident we visit Touch of Italy on a regular basis. During dinner there last night we discovered a problem with one of our entrees. No surprise that it was dealt with efficiently and professionally. From the wait staff to the management we were so pleased with the result. The food is consistently excellent and the staff... More
