Touch of Italy - Rehoboth Beach Delaware Ratings and Reviews
We always hear great things about Touch of Italy in Rehoboth. We finally made it there. We were received and seated rather quickly. It was early Sunday (5:30) and the place was a quarter filled. We waited about 12 minutes before any wait staff came by to introduce themselves and ask for our primary order. Wait another chunk of time - remember, the place was only 25% full. For some reason, we saw every other wait staff except ours. Obviously, they don't provide shared help. When the waitress did come over, she was not prepared to tell us the specials. We had to ask, and she forgot a major special. Not feeling the love, so we edited our plans to a small bite and ordered two pizzas and a Caesar Salad.
Salad - more like soup - want some romaine with your dressing?
Pizza Napolitano - undercooked (in a wood burning special pizza oven????)
Pizza San Marzano - undercooked - tasted pretty good, but nowhere near crispy; doughy crust
Wanted a second beer, but by the time the waitress made her way to us, we were chomping at the bit to leave. Mediocre at best.
The food was absolutely amazing! The restaurant atmosphere itself was a little strange and congested. I did not like that there was a deli right when you walk in. It gave off a strange ambience. The bread came out cold and only with Parmesan cheese. Other than that the entrees were very well done. Overall I would go back again simply for the spaghetti with white wine sauce and clams (and the fettuccine Alfredo.)
Been going here since they opened. A bit noisey but great ambience. Huge problem for me. The tables for two have been moved together in middle of restaurant, about a foot apart. Like some New York restaurants you are essentially having dinner with the next table. Very uncofortable. We will return but only when we have more than two, which is not very often. So sad, great chicken parm.
Everything was outstanding!
Fresh quality food.
Pizza is fantastic brick oven turns out the best crust.
Salads were fresh and dressings were homemade n delicious.
Pasta - Fetachini Alf was very good.
Salmon was perfectly cooked, tasted so fresh n light, the best cooked salmon I've ever had and I have salmon often this was just amazing!
Nice wine selection.
We will be back soon!
Food was okay. Waiter made numerous mistakes. Asked for water without lemon as I am sensitive to lemon; was delivered water and diet soda with water. Was served bread and had to ask numerous times for butter. My wife ordered Fettuccini Alfredo with chicken and spinach. She received Shrimp and no spinach. Very inept at getting our order right. Another case of a server trying to remember an order instead of writing it down. Overall for $90.00 for a dinner for two was not really a great value.
Had made a reservation for lunch, although it wasn't necessary as the restaurant had plenty of open tables. We were seated immediately but it was over 15 minutes before a server approached us for our drink orders. Once that happened, things moved quickly and it was a very pleasant dining experience. The food was good, staff was friendly and we never felt rushed. I would highly recommend the gnocchi, the pasta Fazioli soup and the sausage and peppers.
The food was OK. The clams appetizer was tough and not much flavor. The chicken in white wine sauce was strange it was a fried chicken breast in a creamy white wine sauce. Not much taste and just strange. The chicken parmigiano is very good wish I had that.
Very decent restaurant in Rehoboth. Always very good quality Italian fare, generous portions and tasty. We ordered arugula salad (the caramelized walnuts and artichoke hearts are always a nice touch), and chicken Parmesan, which is always of the same good quality. Other very nice items on the menu are the arancini (Sicilian rice balls). The wine menu is on the simple side and could be upgraded a bit.
Touch of Italy is always one of our favorites. Especially love the Misto Salad. Our service on our most recent visit was particularly slow and no one greeted us for 15 minutes after we had been seated and it did not get better. We did have a reservation. Hoping this was just an off night as they are usually much better. The 4 of us enjoyed our meal although both my daughter and I thought the meatballs were a different recipe and not as good as usual. Will give it another try.
One word says it all - "Nonna's". If you ever go on a Sunday evening Nonna's dinner for two is a must try. Hugh portions of meat and pasta and a side salad ensure that you will be taking alot of food home. Then visit their deli counter for great Italian cheeses, meats, pasta, etc.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a very nice Italian restaurant outside downtown Rehoboth Beach. Over the years I been told that the nicest restaurants are downtown and the chain restaurants are along Coastal highway. Also, I wasn't expecting to find nice restaurant in a strip mall, but that seems to be changing too. I've been pleased recently with Touch of Italy and Michy's. Guess I'll have to "broaden my horizons" One of us had a huge leg of lamb and the other had short ribs. Both were tasty and there was enough food for another meal. Nice Chardonnay and Merlot to accompany to dinner. Only one downside to the dinner. The short ribs came with broccoli rabe which turned out to be very tough and chewy. We will return. I want to try some of their pasta dishes. Another plus, we got to see some of our neighbors and friends who live close by.
Local to the area. Love the Lewes location. First time at Rehoboth location. 10 minutes sitting waitress took drink order. More attentive to the 4 ppl behind us bc they were ordering wine. Had to go up to waitress that happened to be beside manager to ask for refills. Both ignored me while they texted. Another waitress came over instead for refill. Will not be going back.
