Description: 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.

“Finally an Italian Gourmet shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Being a transplanted New Yorker, a Touch of Italy was a fabulous find and worth the drive from Fenwick to make my purchases. Their offerings are great. YOu can eat in the store but take home wonderful meats, olives, cheeses, sauses, etc. Lots of things made fresh on site.

“Best wood fired pizza ever along with an Italian deli to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We come here year after year for wood fired pizzas - absolutely fabulous . The wait staff is wonderful, the food is excellent, fresh and full of flavor! Never loaded up with fat and salt. The deli is filled with marvelous Italian treats: the ricotta clam shell cookie desert and the almond paste pinola cookies. Home made salamis, sausage and fresh cheeses! They even serve the beer from a local micro brewery! All this is in the perfect historical town of Lewes DE! I love it!

“Invasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The Italians from New Jersey are invading Delaware with their Italian Deli. You can hear it in their accents and their attitude about who is next as you wait at the deli counter after taking a number. "Whatta have?"
The one thing they know how to do in New Jersey, and New York, is cook and serve great Italian food. Its disrepectful to serve bad or medicore food. So is the tradition here. The pizzas are great. The sandwichs are wonderfully huge with the right meats and cheeses. The salads are perfect. The desserts are simple in their Italian design.
The food here, whether to go, or eat in, is exactly what you would want and expect in a fine Italian deli. "So whatta have? You make your mind up?"
Love every minute of it.

“Touch of Greatness!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

What a great find. It's a perfect little Italian Market that is authentic. Easy walk from anywhere in town and it's convenient to take a hoagie to go and eat it down on the boardwalk!
