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.

The restaurant is cozy with the deli right there. I love the mozarella, tomato and basil sandwich but everything is delicous. They have a great selection of pasta dishes and sandwiches. So fresh! Excellent selection of drinks, too. Now the pastries....ummm. The best! Always have to leave with a bag of treats to go.

Great downtown location... fresh and many provisions are direct from Italy or NY! Small eatin area with bar finishes off another cool addition to downtown Lewes!

Good homemade food in a small restaurant that does not look like the gem that it is. Food was fresh and prepared well.

The minute you walk in the door you're transported back to a corner Italian Deli in South Philly in the 1960's. AAhhhhhh......everything smells SO good! Meats, cheeses, hanging from the ceiling. Big bakery counter (you gotta try the chocolate dipped macarons!). Bottom line, the atmosphere is great...& so is the food! Not much to add that hasnt already been said, except to warn you..the place is small. Or at least the seating area is. Maybe 8-10 tables. We usually get our food to go. Off hours are no problem. But if you think you're gonna walk in for dinner at 7p on a weekend...fuggetaboutit. Our favorites: subs (the BEST chicken parm sub), wood fired pizzas, eggplant towers, chicken cutlets, smoked mozzarella...I could go on, but you cant go wrong. Great addition to downtown Lewes!
