Friends, family and local dignitaries came out last week to help celebrate the opening of A Ca Mia in Lehigh Township. The restaurant is the latest for township resident Chef Paolo Nota who has been working as a chef in the Valley for over 20 years and has won many awards including Best of the Valley 2003 while operating Paolo’s in Northampton.
The restaurant, located at 4330 Lehigh Drive in Walnutport opened this past November. It is the second restaurant run by Nato operated under the moniker “My House” or A Ca Mia. Paolo first worked at A Ca Mia in Cape May, NJ in 1984.
Chef Paolo serves up traditional Italian cuisine including Veal Parmigiana, Chicken Francias and an Old Fashioned Chicken Milanese. The lunch menu is complete with soup and salads as well as French fries and chicken fingers. Chef Paolo and his kitchen staff make everything fresh to order with the best ingredients, local when available,
In addition to the comfortable atmosphere, the restaurant allows for a front row view of food prep, there are no doors to this kitchen. And behind the counter, six days a week you will find Chef Paolo and a signature toque.
