Lamb Sausage is great. We always get some to go to cook at home. . Mammas Meatballs made with care and Bracioles were tasty as well. Always a nice place to stop in for apps and a bottle of wine or a full meal.

Though the place is small, the food is excellent. My husband and I shared an appetizer then ordered chicken parm and a wood-fired pizza on the recommendation of the server. Probably too much food for us but we couldn't decide. All was delicious and now we have dinner for tonight! Service was good, not over the top but just right.

I love this place several times every year. Good wine. Good sauces. Mammas meatballs are wonderful. Great Italian food. Great salads and authentic Italian pizza. Everything is good. Except I don't bother with the Sfogliatelle dessert because it is not fresh. It has to be fresh.

Our son is stationed nearby and lives in Lewes. When we go to visit we always plan a meal here. The food is consistently fantastic, the atmosphere is great and the staff treat us so well. I've recommended it to other family when they visit also!

Stopped in for lunch at Touch of Italy in lewes' I've eaten at their other locations but never here before. I was promptly greeted, seated and given a beverage. My server was attentive but not overpowering, and, as she saw that I was reading, she gave me sufficient space in every way to enjoy my meal at my pace. I... More

Beautiful holiday afternoon walk around Lewes ended us in front of Touch of Italy. Too early to eat as we had just finished breakfast. We went in to check out the deli counter . It is amazing . We quickly decided we must have a piece of the luscious looking cheese cake to go . A very wise decision indeed.... More

Touch of Italy is one of those restaurants that you can go to and be pretty confident that what you are served is good decent food Very traditional heavier Italian food. Gnocchi's are great! Sauce is good and so are the aps. I've never been wowed! but I have never been disappointed. Pocketbook friendly and great place for a larger... More

Hi DClarke Thanks for taking the time to write in. As a regular, I'm disappointed we haven't "wow"'d you yet. Why don't you reach out to me next time you will be coming in and I'll connect you with someone who will be responsible from that date on to be your personal "wow" person, ok? I'm serious about this, by... More

Small bistro type restaurant like the ones we are accustomed to dining in in Europe. Decor reminiscent of these European family restaurants. Comfortable! Service very courteous and professional (Alex and Craig). House salad exceptional - mixed greens, grape/cherry tomatoes, sweet onions, olives, cukes , etc. served with home made sweet/sour vinaigrette. Fresh Parmesan delivered when requested. Hearty portion size. Entrees... More

thank you for taking the time to write in. We like to think of a visit to Touch of Italy as an "Italian Experience" - recently nicknamed "ItaliaNation". Why do I say that? Because a true Italian Experience is not like a visit to Olive Garden. Every true Italian has their own twist on every sauce, seasoning, recipe and so... More

As soon as we walked in the door, the smells and aroma filled the air! It reminded us of our Italian Market in Washington, DC. The staff was so accommodating. Everyone was extremely friendly. We heard the "Godfather" music playing in the background while we enjoyed our Italiano cold cut sandwiches, delicious salad and rolled eggplant for lunch. Everything was... More

My wife and I get down to Lower Slower Delaware at least ten weekends a year. During the last three or so years we discovered A Touch Of Italy. We have had many of the options on the menu. Their salads are excellent. Their pasta dishes wonderful. We are not big pizza people, but we are at A Touch Of... More

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.
