Touch of Italy, Rehoboth Beach, DE

While we were down at the shore last weekend, we went to Touch of Italy in Rehoboth Beach, DE for lunch. The guys at the shop are from the Bronx and they have created a real Italian deli and pastry shop. We were told that their mother makes all the pastries.
We had a couple of their sandwiches which were served on homemade semolina Italian bread.
I had their #2- the Don Orazio which had hot capicolla, handmade mozzarella and sun dried peppers. I kind of wish the bread were more "crusty", instead it felt more "toasty", but the spicy meat, homemade cheese and sweet peppers were delicious.
Some of our group also ordered the #9- Italian combo- with mortadella, parma cotto ham, genoa salami, capocollo, provolone, and olive oil. Most everyone added hot peppers, too. This was also a pretty great tasting sandwich.
We picked up some great Italian dried sausages from Taste of Italy. It will now be a must-go place now whenever we're down at the shore.

I agree 100% on the bread. I thought the sesame seeds were a little off-note, too.
