About the restaurant
The Rail Trail Flatbread Co., celebrated its grand opening on 12/12/23, marking not only a milestone in Milford's downtown revitalization but also a nod to the original Hudson location's success. Built in a meticulously renovated former bank that features a spacious restaurant and bar, outdoor patio, and upstairs events space, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere.

The Milford location reflects a two-and-a-half-year renovation effort, preserving historical elements like the century-old clock, vault door, and exposed brick walls. The open dining layout encourages interaction, adorned with family photos for a homey feel.

Though famous for flatbreads, Rail Trail boasts diverse offerings, each component is made in-house. Notable flatbreads include "Fig & Walnut" and "Mexican Street Corn," alongside the popular "Primo Pepperoni." Appetizers like "Hot Tots" and "Sesame Cauliflower" showcase Rail Trail's culinary creativity.

About the restaurant
Dino's Restaurant is an authentic Italian restaurant located in Worcester, Massachusetts. Dino’s has been serving its customers the finest Northern and Southern Italian cuisine, as well as a variety of American foods, for over 40 years, with seafood as a specialty. In that time, Dino's serves cuisine from both the northern and southern regions of Italy, with seafood, steaks, veal, and pizzas being the specialties of the house.

At Dino’s, we believe that our customers deserve the best. With that in mind, we ensure that all of our entrées are cooked to order, using the freshest ingredients, which are visually pleasing to the eye as they are to the palette. We also offer business, social and holiday function facilities in The Café, our private function room, which includes a full service bar. Dino’s also provides catering and delivery services.

The food was good - the chef was super fun - and the staff really went out of their way to make my son's birthday special. We have come here a couple of times and always really enjoy it. Highly recommend for a birthday or other occasion. They make it fun!

This was my third visit to Dewey's, the second for brunch. We were a raucous group, and the servers were patient and lovely to us. Trey, the chef, came out personally to say hello and ask how one of the dishes was (and FYI: it was DELICIOUS). If I could eat here every week, I would do so. Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous ambiance.

We always have good experience here. The rolls r delicious. They should consider selling them at the restaurant or at Provisions or Big Y. The Prix Fixe menu is a wonderful value.
