Lewes, DE, is our go to place when we want a quick getaway to the seaside so we have become familiar with many of the places to eat there. Touch of Italy was a disappointment for us having dined many times in Tuscany and northern Italy near the Austrian border. I think the best thing to be said is it... More

This is not your typical rest. It's not real large. But, we really enjoyed our meal. Service was excellent. This is what a REAL ITALIAN rest. is suppose to be. I enjoyed our meal, and enjoyed watching people come, and go at their take out counter. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, will return when in the area. You won't go away hungry!!!!!!!

Attentive staff well versed in the menu items will help guide you to an amazing authentic Italian meal here. Location is small as it is located downtown, but the atmosphere is nice for couples and small groups.

Ordering a lunch should not take 15 min to order at Counter. Customers time Is Valuable too. If personal calls need to be taken during customer service AT the register, Find someone else to have the service level complement the bar/ standard established by the Food. Sandwiches off Menu met expectations. Desserts were delicious. 3*** Service ,5 ***** food.

I'm sorry that our customer service was not the exceptional level we strive to have. Hopefully, you expressed your concerns to the manager. I will certainly follow up with our Director of Operations and share your feedback. We hope you will give us another opportunity to demonstrate excellent customer service and delicious food! Thank you! More

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!

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.
