We visited Touch of Italy while in town this weekend. I just returned from Italy and this place is truly the closest to the feeling of being in Italy. Of course, Carl the manager is top notch! He’s friendly and cares about us. I had...More

Thank you for the review. I’m wondering if you visited our Rehoboth location. Our Lewes location is in quaint downtown, but the review would be close to the same and you’d be just as happy with any of our locations. Please come back and visit...More

Pleasantly located in quaint downtown Lewes my husband and I were thrilled to see a small deli at the entrance way before the dining area. Stephanie was our waitress and she was friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. The only reason I didn’t rate 5 stars...More

Some of the best Italian dishes on the Delaware shore area. I had the Veal parmigiana and my wife had the Chicken Fettuccini and they both had the best souses ever. Meal Wine chooses made the evening memorable. We will by back.

Sorry touch of Italy. I recently relocated from New York to Lewes Delaware. Just because your store smells of nice cheeses and you have olives and artichoke hearts floating in olive oil and you play Italian music does not make you a good Italian Deli...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.
