Walked into Touch of Italy and it reminded me of an Italian market. Very nicely put together and tons of products that remind of what they sell in Italy. We were told we had a 45 minute wait to be seated; so we patiently waited....More

We had the pleasure of finding Touch of Italy in our walk through Lewes. There was a wait to be seated so we decided to take dessert with us. Amazing!! We shared a piece of cheese cake, an eclair, ricotta cookies, and a lobster tail....More

Located on the corner of the historic shopping area. The meatballs, ravioli, and marinara evoked my husband's Italian grandmother. My grilled eggplant and marinated vegetable sub/hero was full of flavor. Seating is cozy and tight with the takeout area. Admirable to spare a table for...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.
