The service and the food were horrible during lunch. I have been before during dinner and has a totally different experience. Not sure I would recommend.

When you walk into the shop you know its gonna be great just by the aromas of cheeses, meats, salads, and our weakness, pastries. We tried several different cookies, cream puffs, and eclairs. We need a trip back to Lewes for dinner!!!

When our local contact mentioned Touch of Italy I thought it would be just another Italian restaurant. I am glad we tried it. Chock-full of true Italian meats, baked goods, and groceries, it is a bit intimidating for the newcomer to walk in. Sit at...More

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.

We order takeout from here at least once a month. The food is delicious! My family of 4 usually orders 3 pastas and a salad. It is plenty to share and there is always foood leftover. We would love to eat there sometime because the...More

Went to this charming restaurant last night and had one of the nicest meals we’ve had in ages. I’ve never been to Italy but cannot imagine the food could be any better. From the time we entered, everyone was exceptionally friendly and professional. We had...More

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.
