Their service was slow. We went after the lunch traffic so was surprised. We love the Rehoboth location and continue to visit that one. Good desserts!

A small Italian restaurant in the heart of Lewes. Good meals, but large portions worth sharing. A regular stop for us

This small restaurant cheerfully accommodated our party of 8 in an almost-private wine room. So cozy and the food was wonderful! The pasta dishes and the chicken Parmesan were particular standouts but it all was quite good. The staff was warm, efficient and quite attentive...More

This place is one of my favorite Italian restaurants anywhere and my absolute favorites when I go to the Delmarva shore. Everything is made from scratch. The seafood and the mozzarella are fantastic (everything else is also). The service is impeccable. I cannot say enough...More

Description
Home for Bob Ciprietti is Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. Growing up there and falling in love with the food, tradition,and people of NY inspired him to bring a little bit of home to Delaware. Touch of Italy first opened in the fall of 2010 in Lewes, Delaware and now has locations in Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City, MD. Each ristorante has a salumeria(deli) and a pasticceria (bakery) in house. Although our dining room opens at 11 AM, the bakery and deli open at 10 AM.

We are known for our most popular Chicken Parm, our mozzarella, our crispy bread, our internationally recognized brick oven pizza, our pasta, and our eclairs.

It's important to us that when you dine with us you enjoy a true authentic Italian experience with good food, friends, family, and great conversation. Stop by for a glass of wine and some good pasta or some meatballs and bread. Regardless of your choice, you won't be disappointed.
