You can always count on an excellent meal year round. From the bread to the pasta and especially the pastries.

Everything about this dinner was delicious. From the Caesar salad, to the basil pesto homemade pasta with shrimp, to the cannoli cake, this restaurant is our favorite in Rehoboth.

The atmosphere, menu, and food feel more genuinely Italian to me than any restaurant I've visited outside of Italy. Expect it to be crowded and noisy, and don't think of asking for butter for your bread, but you will get a delicious meal. The whole restaurant and deli is open concept, so maybe not a first choice for conversation or... More

Everything is consistent and nice portions. A good casual place for friends or family. Meatballs and "gravy" are excellent.

All types of pastas, salads and rustic pizzas. Very authentic Italian Market atmosphere. A little pricey, but worth the experience.

Every time my husband and I visit DE we go to a Touch of Italy. The food is amazing! We have had lunch, dinner, dessert and more dessert. Great food for reasonable prices.

Tastes I haven't experiences since being in Italy. No American-Italian here. Just the real thing. I recommend a stop for lunch, dinner, or a few of their cookies!

Good traditional Italian deli. All of the traditional cheeses, meats, pastries and antipasti fanfare that you find in a great Italian Deli in a larger city but nestled in scenic Lewes.

Hard to make up our minds everything coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled fantastic. Eggplant roll ups, arugula salad and fired oven margarita pizza did the trick for the three of us! Hmmmm good

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.
