Our family visited Frank & Louie's for their St. Joseph Day pastries. They bought us a few as they are supposed to be a specialty item. They reminded me of cream puffs. Honestly I prefer a cream puff with a custard filling over this creamy...filling. I thought they were just OK. My husband enjoyed them. I wouldn't go out of my way, but if in the area check out their sandwiches and desserts.More

I was very happy to have found this place; we were taking the 11:15 am Lewes-Cape May Ferry and wanted to pick up lunch before we boarded. We showed up on Easter Saturday and while they were super-busy preparing orders that were called in, the...owner kindly accepted my walk-up order and prepared our sandwiches ahead of the larger orders in progress. It was such a kind gesture and one that shows that the family that runs the place truly cares for their customers. The sandwiches were enormous and delicious and please respect the owners' decision not to put lettuce, tomatoes, and other condiments on them; they were fine just they way they chose to make them. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the area and I can't think of a better lunch to have on the ferry than one of their sandwiches.More

Boy oh boy, are we glad we found Frank and Louie's! These brothers treated like best family friends...that's a welcomed change these days. Each brother donned a shirt with their first name on them because they look nearly identical. Louie met us first and then...Frank. Covid-19 restricted us to enter their small deli, but you could see a lot of their food items through the small screened door they use to interact with customers and take orders. Highly advisable to call in your orders Frank said, especially during summer hours and now due to restrictions. Our food selections were fantastic. I suspect now that they all are after eating and reading the reviews. I had Sal's hoagie, lemon squares, meatballs, Anise waffle cookies powdered with sifted sugar, abd awsome sharp provolone cheese. I cannot express enough just how tasty everything was. The olive oil seasoning and fresh NY baked bread are the best tasting we've ever had. These people know how to bake and make Italian food. We'll be back to try the other sandwiches, baked goods, and anything else they concoct.More

I have been looking for great desserts in the Rehoboth area and have been very disappointed. I finally found a winner. I ordered a selection of cookies and pastries and was thrilled with everything. I enjoyed the best cannoli I have had in many years:...just like I remembered in my youth. Every type of cookie has been wonderful. I also ordered eggplant parmesan. Can't wait to try it.More

What a wonderful discovery this takeout place has been. You have to call ahead and place your order but it was worth that step. We got cheese lasagna and it came with extra sauce. The best sauce I have had in years from a restaurant....Not too salty (like Touch of Italy which is a salt fest). And the lasagna was huge so we split it. We bought 2 of them without knowing the first time about the size and had 2 dinners that week splitting them each time. Really love this place. A++++ experience.More

First stop when we arrived in RB. Walked there from the beautiful house we are staying. During COVID-19 it is a wee bit different yet they do a fantastic job. Tiny Dancer. Don't let the name fool ya. BIG sandwich with the freshest bread &...even fresher mozzarella- asked for hot peppers & WAS warned. They are hot. My mouth is still on fire (in a good way)! C&C Special. Prosciutto Cotto, Soppressata, fresh mozzarella & yes HOT peppers. So friendly. Call ahead & your order will be waiting. We walked the shops on the block & after 20 minutes our lunch was ready.More

If you want an authentic Italian food experience Frank & Louie's is not the best place to go in the Rehoboth/Lewes area, but the only place to go. The quality of the all the food is outstanding, but the baked goods are my favorite The...cookies and pastries are made on site by their grandmother. The employees are efficient and friendly and really care about their customers. A visit can be like visiting family. If you come to the beach and miss Frank & Louie's you have missed the opportunity to feel the essence of the community.More

That sandwich is at Capriotti's, I believe the Rehoboth location is closed but there is one in Lewes on Savannah Road.
