This is one of our chances throughout the year to showcase the Hellertown/Lower Saucon Area, all of its exquisite eateries, high quality breweries and a fantastic winery to our local residents and residents across the Lehigh Valley. You won’t want to miss out!”

Our restaurant week menus are going to be available during Brunch, Lunch and Dinner service, starting on Sunday the 12th with Brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“Participating in Restaurant Week is a great way to showcase our most popular dishes to the entire Lehigh Valley, and most importantly for those who haven’t dined with us before,” commented Anna DiMaio, owner of DiMaio’s Family Ristorante and Pizzeria.
“In addition to experiencing some of the local flavors these restaurants have to offer, it’s also a great time to explore other attractions and activities nearby,” added O’Donnell.
