Touch of Italy celebrates the season with new menu items, great off-season prices and exciting events

February 26, 2019

Touch of Italy has been bringing authentic Italian cuisine to Delaware since 2013. And off-season visitors and locals love the marketplace, the new menu items and upcoming festive events.

Touch of Italy’s 4th Annual Carnevale 2019 Fundraiser will take place on Tuesday, April 9th at 6 p.m. This limited-attendance event celebrates Carnevale - the Italian Mardi Gras – with cuisine from 5 Italian culinary regions, unlimited wines, live auctions, masks and more. By limited attendance, we mean that only 100 tickets will be sold! So the party is intimate and easy to negotiate.

This annual event benefits the of Italy Culinary Scholarship Fund, a 501(c)(3) charity that assists Cape Region high school graduates with entry into accredited culinary institutions. At present, the Culinary Scholarship Fund has helped students attend the Culinary Institute of America, Johnson & Wales University, Wor-Wic Community College, University of Delaware and Delaware Technical & Community College. Be a part of this worthy cause by joining the party! Tickets are available at

The four Touch of Italy locations invite you to savor genuine Italian ingredients and recipes imported from Arthur Avenue in the Bronx! And every TOI offers one-stop-shopping at the Marketplace 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,  tomato paste, rosemary crackers and even gelato. And don’t forget the grab & go dishes for that last-minute occasion that requires a gift basket or a selection of delectable treats. You can serve an entire dinner for your guests – and let Touch of Italy do all the work!

There’s nothing like authentic Italian sweet treats! TOI’s chief baker Marta Lucci works overtime to make sure there are enough of TOI’s legendary Italian cookies and pastries for you and your guests, including those snow-white macaroons, the pignoli nut almond cookies, baci, chocolate cannoli, gigantic eclairs, biscotti, pies, cakes, the signature wedding cookies and much more.

The Touch of Italy restaurants in Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Ocean City and Wilmington are open every day. Visit for more info or to make reservations. Touch of Italy! More than just a touch. It’s the real thing.
