Touch of Italy brings authentic Italian tastes and family traditions from the Bronx

September 28, 2020

Touch of Italy is known throughout Delaware’s Cape Region, and Ocean City, Md. for authentic Italian ingredients imported from Arthur Avenue in the Bronx!

But this landmark is even a lot more than that: Touch of Italy’s Italian Marketplace features hard-to-find imported items and one-stop-shopping where guests can purchase TOI-brand peeled tomatoes from San Marzano (so sweet and tender, no sugar needs to be added!), olive oil, crushed red pepper, imported capers, pasta, tomato paste, rosemary crackers, gelato and more.

Touch of Italy’s deli cases overflow with grab & go dishes for that last-minute occasion that requires one-of-a-kind treats. You’ll always find Touch of Italy’s signature meatballs, breaded chicken cutlets, cooked eggplant cutlets, olives, peppers, lasagna, Italian sausage, loaves of fresh semolina bread and tomato basil sauce. You can serve an entire dinner for your guests – and let TOI do the work! And all these are still available from the Lewes and Rehoboth locations for purchase during the restaurant restrictions.

This is the beach, after all, and there’s nothing like the crunch and yeasty pull of an expertly baked pizza! And Touch of Italy’s award-winning pizzaiolos stand ready, pizza peel in hand, to present you with the perfect pie. No wonder: Touch of Italy has been dishing up authentic Italian cuisine in Delaware and Maryland since 2010.

Of course, what’s an Italian feast without dessert?! Touch of Italy’s chief baker Marta Lucci works overtime to make sure there are enough of their legendary Italian cookies for you and your guests. She’s also the creator of those snow-white macaroons, the pignoli nut almond cookies, baci, chocolate cream cheese rounds, and the beautiful ricotta cookies. And don’t forget the mini chocolate cannoli, creampuffs, gigantic eclairs, biscotti, pies, cakes and the signature wedding cookies. And again, these are all available for grab & go takeout as well!

During this challenging time, the Touch of Italy restaurants in Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, and Ocean City will be open for dining while taking every measure for our guests and staff’s safety and comfort. In addition, Touch of Italy will continue to do takeout and curbside service for the foreseeable future to meet our community’s needs. Visit for more info.

Touch of Italy! More than just a touch. It’s the real thing.
