2. Benvenuto

Benvenuto is a Tuscan-inspired restaurant with an emphasis on homemade dishes and simple ingredients. 

The beginnings of Benvenuto can be traced back to 1955, when a young married couple named Raymond and Anne left Milford for 11 months to live in Livorno, Italy. Their trip inspired generations of friends and family and led to the creation of Benvenuto Restaurant in 2019. Family and friendship are at the core of Benvenuto — even down to its name, which means “welcome” in Italian. 

For a taste of comforting Tuscan dishes in a restaurant that feels like your home away from home, visit Benvenuto while you're staying in Milford. Order a hearty bowl of soup on a brisk day, try one of the options from their seafood menu or keep it simple with a classic flatbread.

And if your schedule is already packed with activities, don't worry! Bibi's offers pickup and delivery so you can try some of the best Mexican food Milford has to offer while checking every entry off of your getaway to-do list.
