Description: 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.

“Great sandwiches on fabulous bread!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Yup....the real thing! We ordered four different sandwiches for takeout and broccoli rabe salad as a side. The sandwiches were awesome. Eggplant parmigiana, porketta, eggplant and artichoke, and proscuitto with fontina and anchovies, all on very authentic italian bread. The salad was a bit heavy on the garlic would be the only criticism. The moment you walk in the door wonderful smells are permeating the air. Lovely salads line the case to make it very difficult to chose what to take home. The bakery items looked delish but we had to pass this time around.

“Delightful Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We were staying in a hotel and had ordered food from a local pizza place. The food never arrived. Despite calling them back, the food never did come. In the end we went out walking looking for a place to eat. Not far from our hotel, the Holiday Inn Express, we came across the Touch of Italy. . Although there was a mix-up in the order, and although we had to wait a long time, we were indeed pleased. The food was substantial and quite tasty. I'd double check on your order to make sure what they provide is what you ordered.

“Very Good Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We dine at Touch of Italy twice a month. The service is always excellent. Pizza & pasta dishes are very good. Nice atmosphere, not too fancy. Best Italian food in Lewes. My only hesitation is they close at 9pm on weekdays, 10pm would be better.

“Italian Perfection in Lewes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We discovered ToI by accident while biking in the fall of 2012 and have not stop going since. Perfect lunch after biking the Rehoboth-Lewes trails. Great wine, delicious food and AWESOME service that makes you feel at home or at a cozy restaurant in Rome.

Buon Appetito!!

“Combo Deli, Bakery, & Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

A corner Italian Deli and Bakery that turned out to have the best fettuccine Alfredo and thin crust pizza w/mozzarella and Italian sausage. My wife loves Alfredo sauce that is not too garlicky and home made pasta and that's exactly what she got. My pizza had a pesto sauce with big spheres of home-made mozzarella and Italian sausage that was not to spicy. And of course my wife and I both had eclairs with Ann assortment of Italian cookies to take back to the hotel. If your in Lewes, don't miss it. Don't get fooled by looking inside from the sidewalk trying to find the tables and chairs. After 5 or 6 steps inside the store you'll see them plus a bar for drinks or wine!!!
