  • "A cozy restaurant to bring a date. It's not quiet but has an energetic atmosphere. Great food and wine selections. Good variety of Italian wines Great variety of cheeses and deserts in the deli part of the restaurant and the bar is right in the middle which I love."

  • "Every time I eat at touch of Italy (at least once a week)' it reminds me of my grandmother. Mamas meatballs are very similar to hers., the smells remind me of Sunday morning cooking dinner. Everything is fresh, the pasta is cooked perfectly and the variety of gravy (New Yorkese for sauce) is wonderful. Don't miss this delightful experience. Renie"

  • "I've read other peoples reviews prior to dining at touch of Italy and some were not so good. Not so for my husband and me. The food was excellent and the service was great. We had made a reservation for 430 pm on a Saturday but there was hardly anyone there so if you want to not feel so crowded I recommend going early. Even though there was hardly anyone there it was pretty loud which would be my only complaint. Otherwise it was fantastic and we definitely be returning!"

  • "I've been here several times. Food, service, and atmosphere, with a partial open kitchen and a place to buy their specialty items, are very welcoming. Portions are very large so expect to take some home. Best part is they now take Opentable reservations which is fairly new. Previously, we had to wait for a table which could take more than one hour because of their popularity."

  • "I have been to Touch of Italy a few times and have always enjoyed the food and good service. BUT the noise level is so high, I could not hear the person across the table. I will go back again, but try to go when it is not so busy."

  • "A Touch of Italy has the warmth and vibe of an Italian Family . The atmosphere is welcoming. The service is friendly . And the food is Italiano Cucina ... Delisciousa!!! Mamas meatballs are almost as good as mine !!! Sal and the crew do a great job!"

  • "This restaurant has it all. Great food, great pizza cooked in a wood fired oven, a deli selling all types of Italian food, and Italian pastries, and they take reservations through Open Table +++, especially in the busy beach season ."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Food items ran from excellent to tasteless. Noisy, and cramped. Waitress tried hard but had to keep running for items that should have been on the table like salt, pepper, grated cheese, half and half, sweeteners, etc. Salad was soggy and tastless. Meatballs were large but tasteless. Sauce was watery. Soup and deserts were excellent. If I go back it will be for take out."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "From the truly authentic Italian ambiance, stylish yet cozy decor, comfy seating, over the fantastically fresh food and exquisite wines and cocktails to the perfectly attentive waiting staff we couldn't have picked a better restaurant for the night of ... our engagement!"

  • "The most delicious food! Love the whole made pizza. Meatballs are the best! Just love it!"

  • "A popular standout with its fresh ingredients and familiar Italian dishes, and the availability of a wide variety of cheeses, deli meats, vegetable dishes and - notably - freshly made desserts. In fact, it’s not ridiculous to suggest that at “Touch of Italy,” diners should consider having dessert first, because dinner portions are generous, and dessert can seem excessive after a meal. Despite the very busy evening in the restaurant, service was excellent. Prices are moderate. Atmosphere is “loud.” Maybe even “noisy.” (“Energetic” is a euphemism, here.) Stepping outside after our 90-minute meal was a welcome blast of silence. Overall an excellent choice for fresh food and very good service, but you won’t want to linger."

  • "Good wine inexpensive, vibrant atmosphere and Italian music, excellent desserts and Italian rum cake at bakery, large portions but tomato sauce is uneventful ( no garlick, orageno, basil just tomato and too much sugar . a Basil, garlic oil and tomato sauce would be much nicer. Pizza also was too sweet and small sized for the $13. for a 13 inch pizza Boston Bill"

  • "My husband and I have mixed reviews. He thought it was great and would go again. I thought it was ok/good but would try it again. Menu was interesting and some different dishes. Husband had veal chop and loved it. I had chicken taleggio and thought dish was good but chicken was tough and overcooked. Ceasar salad to me was only ok-lettuce with shaved parm. and a little dressing. Lacked a little to me. was disappointed Thought this was going to be a great Italian find."

  • "We had a resevation and were seated promptly. However, we waited a long time for a server. Once someone appeared we learned there had been some confusion about which server had been assigned to our table. Once she arrived our server took very good care of us. The food was plentiful and delicious."

  • "We've been loyal customers since they opined in Lewes! Love everything about this restaurant . Food has never let me down. Pizza is excellent. Wine list is ample. The desserts are to die for. You feel like you are in a little restaurant in Italy! And the music fits the scene perfectly. You can enjoy coffee and Italian dessert and be serenaded by Frank Sinatra! Heaven This is always a lunch or dinner stop for us every time we come to the beach"

  • "This location of Touch of Italy in Delaware is my favorite. It consistently serves good Italian food and attentive service. Don't miss out on the homemade pastries, either. Food is priced reasonable and portions are just right. This location has become one of our new favorites to dine at regularly when at the beach."

  • "Great Italian restaurant with authentic Italian food. They have a great selection of food for all taste. They have take out from the restaurant and a Italian style deli with many imported products that includes many backed goods."

  • "I've been going the Delaware beaches all of my life and just now found this amazing place. The food is fantastic! My wife got the gnocchi and it was the best we have ever tasted!!!! The meatball sandwich I ordered was humungous and delicious. Our waitress (sorry, forgot her name) was great with our two little boys and one of the guys behind the deli counter even gave my two-year old son a free cookie for no specific reason. Overall our entire party was more than pleased and we will definitely be frequenting this place a lot more often."

  • "The fact that they take reservations got us in the door. We dine out four to five nights per week and were looking for an italian restaurant with a great salad and chicken parm. We found it here and will probably return once a month. We are local and stay out of crowded beach restaurants, but as long as they take reservations we will become regulars."

  • "I recently treated a group of business associates and frriends to a holiday lunch at Touch of Italy on Rt. 1. It surpassed our expectations. Food and service were outstanding and Sal made my group feel so special! Thank you for a lovely holiday treat Italitan style!"

  • "What a great place for great food.The four of us had different meals and all loved them equally. Fried mozzarella with proscuitto is a must as an appetizer and the orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe was out of this world. Bottles of wine are reasonable and quite good. We have been there four times now, including lunch, and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend it."

  • "Brought my 90 year old Italian mother-in-law - she cried! She said it was like what she remembered as a child in Italy. She kept saying - those are just like Nona's meataballs!" That's what Touch is to us - "real" Italian, sit around the Sunday dinner table, loosen your belt loops and laugh. When you are done, hugs and kisses all around. When you are done kissing the servers (your new famiglia) , then you hug and kiss the family you came in with. Coming back next week"
