We have been to Lewes 5 times and have gone here at least once on every visit. The quality of the food and service are second to none.

It reminds me of the little Italian market cafes in NYC and Italy. The food is great and the service is friendly and helpful. I recommend the pizzas... but everything is very good and fresh.

You can smell good food as you enter the small bistro. Very friendly and rapid service. Very good variety of food and wines. If you are taking friends or family call for reservation and show up on time. Parking could be a problem at times.

Tried a few things so we can order for our Italian Christmas Eve, the cannoli, eclairs and sfogliatelli are great, can't wait to try a few more things. We talked to Abby who was fantastic, sweet and very helpful.

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.
