Ray’s Italian Kitchen, Milford-on-Sea
Muddy says: This little taste of Italy on the south coast is a welcome addition to the New Forest’s foodie scene, specialising in small plates that are big on flavour.
As the latest addition to the foodie block, Ray’s Italian Kitchen promises diners rustic, authentic Italian food that is big on flavour and equally on style.
Although its food is super traditional, the 65-cover eatery has been carefully curated by restaurateur, Stacey Crouch, and is a mix of modern industrial-vibe lighting and metalwork with rich gold and blue details everywhere.
Named for Stacey’s dad, the restaurant and bar specialises in meals for sharing, with Charcuterie platters for two priced at £16.00 to thin-based pizzas, starting at £9.00, complete with classic toppings so everybody can grab a slice.
