That's Italian!

We've bought plenty of authentic Italian food at each of Touch of Italy's locations on the MD/DE shore but this was the first time we ate at the Rehoboth location. We had four kids with us, ages 9-13, and ordered fried calamari, burrata, and margarita pizza. All were excellent as was the service. After the meal we couldn't help but purchase some fresh mozzarella and an assortment of cookies. These were also delicious. As an Italian who grew up in NYC, the Touch of Italy shops really provide a heavy dose of nostalgia for the old-time Italian delis. The adjoining restaurants are an added bonus.

Family Dinner

The service and food were excellent. There was adequate parking and the restaurant had ambiance. There was a good wine list and a good selection of domestic and imported beers. I would definitely recommend this as a dinner destination.

Outstanding food and service. They have some great gluten free options for my wife. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. I had the Braciole served with Cavatelli, it was wonderful. Gnocchi and Ravioli also delicious. Wonderful dessert choices and even the coffee was exemplary. I would highly recommend.
