Some of the best Italian dishes on the Delaware shore area. I had the Veal parmigiana and my wife had the Chicken Fettuccini and they both had the best souses ever. Meal Wine chooses made the evening memorable. We will by back.

Had a lovely dinner the other day, I got the pollo al taleggio, which was delicious. The wait staff is attentive and the decor pleasant. One small negative, the bread we got with the meal was not really fresh, but our party asked for another...More

Sorry touch of Italy. I recently relocated from New York to Lewes Delaware. Just because your store smells of nice cheeses and you have olives and artichoke hearts floating in olive oil and you play Italian music does not make you a good Italian Deli...More

Just stopped in for takeout. Got a meatball hero. The meatballs (4) were large and tasty made of veal pork and beefThe roll was also fresh and extremely tasteful. I was shocked at the price. Fifteen dollars.

Always enjoy a Saturday afternoon lunch in Lewes at Touch of Italy. Friendly people, good wine and food and great service. Nice way to spend a fall afternoon after a walk around a great little town.

Good food but not exceptional. Figuring it is a little overpriced for pasta dishes. this restaruant needs competition... which for them, fortunatley, you will not find it in old towne Lewes.

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.
