By all means get the shrimp fettuccine alfredo! OMG it is the Best. Small quaint Italian food eatery with delicious smells as soon as you walk in. Service was wonderful! Have a nice counter to get meats, cheeses and pastry.

Awesome Establishment with consistent quality dishes. My favorite attribute is accessibility. Whether in DE or MD there is a location available close by. Rehoboth has a market as well and is my favorite! WHY? : ) I can dine, shop and dash in one stop. CHECK IT OUT ....

Best Caprese we have had and meal was excellent. Service was also excellent. We plan to go back. Waitress (Stephany, I hope) was so good, knew the menu and helped us in our selections.

We often go in the off season to avoid the crowds and to also take advantage of the winter specials. Seasonal ravioli and chicken parmigiana are two of our favorite nights. The quality of the food is always exceptional and the menu is surprisingly large. Also, the deli part of the business offers some delicious and interesting items to go.

The ambiance of the restaurant is what drew us in. The eggplant rollatini wasn't hot when we received it but did taste good. The entrees were eh. Sauce is definitely different from what we're used to has a strange flavor. We were definitely not impressed and wouldn't eat here again.

We grew up next to "Little Italy" in Baltimore and are real fans of Italian cooking - this place blew us away with their delicious food. More authentic Italian than anyplace we've been. Have tried their other restaurants (the one in Rehoboth and the one in Ocean City) but Lewes is our favorite. They win me over when I walk... More

The best spot in Lewes! Pizza, pasta, sandwiches, deli, desserts and antipasti. Eat in or take it to go. My favorite place in my town other than homemade food!

Found the outside of the restaurant a little dirty, but inside was clean. Went right to the counter and placed my order. The sandwich had fresh meats and cheeses. My only complaint was the roll was too hard and made total enjoyment difficult.

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.
