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 have been to the downtown Lewes Touch of Italy several times. Each time has been great. It does take a while to get your order, but I've found the customer service at this location to be friendly and helpful. Their cheeses and deli meats are far superior to any other in downstate Delaware. That being said, we decided to... More

Authentic Italian cheeses, charceuterie, pastries, and pasta...was even able to buy handmade sausage and ravioli from Borgatti's Raviol to prepare at homei. The lunch sandwiches are delicious as is the pizza and for dinner some of the pasta dishes are wonderful...also, try... More

I was in Lewes for my yearly beach trip and ran across Touch of Italy. I was impressed by the food, which was very tasty. It's kind of a bustling place, not a place for a quiet dinner, but the food quality was top-notch. I had the chicken parmagiana sandwich, which was large and well-made. The sauce was interesting, a... More

So, my cousin tells me about this place "best Italian I ever ate"--which is exceedingly high praise from her. So, off we go. Very small place that was packed at 3pm on a Friday afternoon. We ate at the bar. The wait staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. We had the amazing antipasto (ate half and brought the other half... More

This place is the real deal so make sure you get here (in Lewes, though I assume the same in Rehoboth) The deli counter tells you what you need to know to in terms of authenticity, just by looking at it. The sharp and friendly waitstaff in deep blue polo shirts do a great job of balancing efficiency and friendly.... More

Took the family to Lewes for the day. We ran across Touch of Italy and decided to give it a try. My wife and I loved the sandwiches we had. They were full of meat and cheeses and very flavorful. I think the kids were less impressed, until it came to dessert time. We took cannolis home with us and... More

When we're in Lewes this is always a must stop at place. We love the pizza and the subs which are made with real Italian meat - not "lunch" meat. There aren't many tables so come early or late if you don't want to wait. Even if you don't go for a meal they have a deli counter where you... More

I went twice to Touch if Italy while on my stay in Lewes, DE. I went for dinner first and I got a pizza "Fiaschetto", It was good except they put a lot of prosciutto on top which was extremely salty. The only way I could eat the pizza was by removing the prosciutto. However, my husband wanted to go... More

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant and deli. Everything we enjoyed was superb--fresh and flavorful. The lines might be daunting, but the food is worth the wait. We enjoyed their Insalata Mista, pasta with their homemade meat sauce, eggplant rolatini and calzoni. Everything was delicious. The biscotti were soft and just right--not too sweet, and the cannoli were wonderful as... More
