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.

“Best Deli in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We buy all our cheese, olives, pastries, italian goods here. Lou and Frank are the best. The sandwiches are great and the guys are always willing to adjust. They carry hard-to-get italian specialties like anisette sugar and salted capers.

“The best Italian deli and restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The restaurant is cozy with the deli right there. I love the mozarella, tomato and basil sandwich but everything is delicous. They have a great selection of pasta dishes and sandwiches. So fresh! Excellent selection of drinks, too. Now the pastries....ummm. The best! Always have to leave with a bag of treats to go.

“Looks, feels,smells, and tastes like you are in a deli in Little Italy, NY!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Great downtown location... fresh and many provisions are direct from Italy or NY! Small eatin area with bar finishes off another cool addition to downtown Lewes!

“A surprising find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Good homemade food in a small restaurant that does not look like the gem that it is. Food was fresh and prepared well.
