Nardelli’s made its mark and presence since 1922 within the middle of Connecticut as a traditional Italian deli. When the Nardelli Family had the opportunity to open a franchise in Milford, they couldn’t pass it up. Milford celebrated their four year anniversary on September 1, 2019.

Milford is a wonderful coastal town in between Bridgeport and New Haven and serves as a great location near many beaches, highways, railways and even the Long Island Ferry!

This location is best known for its Italian Combo, but also offers many other delicious cold and hot grinder options, as well as a range of salads and desserts! They also offer healthy options such as wraps and a variety of garden salads.  Put Nardelli’s Milford on your list of lunch and dinner spots. If you don’t have time to stop in, you can always order online or from our mobile app!

We are open Monday – Wednesday from 10:30AM – 8:00PM, Thursday – Friday from 10:30AM to 9:00PM, Saturday 10:30AM – 8:00PM and Sunday from 11:00AM – 5:00PM! Please call us directly at 203-693-2227 and ask for John, Joe or Dom and we will be happy to help make suggestions and answer any questions about your catering needs!



The Milford Nardelli’s began operation in the Spring of 2016. This location is managed by John Fedak and was the thirteenth Nardelli’s location to open. John and his family decided to manage a location together, after some consideration and discussion they decided it was a great next step for their family. John and his family were originally from Bridgeport, Connecticut before they relocated, and eventually made their final move to Milford, Connecticut. Both John and his brother graduated from Western Connecticut State University.

John and his family are proud to manage the Milford Nardelli’s location and pride themselves on their catering advertising in the community. At one point, they even claimed the title for highest percentage of catering orders out of all Nardelli’s locations. If the Milford Nardelli’s is not busy providing food for local parties and events, you can find them donating food to local charities and fundraisers.

Throughout these past few years, John has learned how to successfully run a business and has been able to keep both his employees and his customers happy. In need of a deli or the best grinders in Milford?! If so, be sure to stop into the Milford Nardelli’s the next time you’re around!

    I have grown up on the Italian Combo grinder - nothing beats it no matter where I've been (I even have friends overseas who crave them). I live out of state and always get one when I come home or have one delivered when my family visits. I've known the entire Nardelli family my whole life as well and in my opinion they are the nicest and their product is the best.

    Superior Italian Deli: Upscale/NY Deli type of atmosphere. EXCELLENT pastries! Try the cheesecake burrito, a little piece of heaven. Premade salads are large & great. Fresh, tasty fare.

    After reading about Nardelli’s in CT Magazine we had to eat there. We immediately realized why Nardelli’s has won the Best Grinder in the state so many years. The food is simply delicious… it tastes as if made with love and pride. Their special sauce is fresh and tasty and you can’t find it anywhere. The staff is friendly and warm and makes you feel part of the family. The ambiance is clean and comfortable… it feels just like home. We moved away from Connecticut some years ago and whenever we go back we always have to visit Nardelli’s. We can’t wait until they open a franchise near us.

    My first job was at Nardelli's. They made me feel like family then and now 20 years later when I go in for one of their incredible grinders, they still make me feel like family.

    Just a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed my recent two visits to Nardelli’s---One on Plank Road and the other on Watertown Avenue. The choices were too many ( hard to decide )---the food was fresh and delicious, but best of all was the personality exuded by the help. I was particularly impressed that it was equally reflected in both stores. Obviously your training is spot on. I will return.

    The people are the friendliness and the Panini sandwiches are the best! I wouldn’t want Grandma to know this…Nardelli’s sauce is just as good as her homemade sauce and I don’t have to cook or wash the pans

    Delicious home made Italian food that smells and tastes just like my Nona's! THAT is something very special and tough to find these days!

    My favorite thing to do on Saturday’s ( in the 50’s ) was to go with my friends to Nardelli’s downstairs, where my mother worked ( Sylvia G. ) with Freddie and Joe and get a grinder ( a whole loaf of hard crusted bread) a soda and chips. Then we hitched hiked our way back home to Hamilton Ave and ate our grinders on the front porch and listened to the baseball game.

    I am grateful to have been part of the history that made Nardelli’s and Waterbury the greatest memories I ever had while growing up.
