Welcome to the first-ever Townsquare Media of Danbury Restaurant Week.

Each day, from Monday, July 22 through Friday, July 26, we'll feature absolutely unbeatable deals (and some giveaways) from some of the very best restaurants in the area.

Today, i95's Ethan and Lou Show welcomed Sal E Pepe Contemporary Italian Bistro on Main St. in Newtown.

During a live interview with Angelo, the owner of the award-winning Newtown favorite discussed his success despite the fact that he has had no formal culinary training, how his business has been running for all these years and even brought us some sample treats. They also offer up a chance for YOU to win a gift card for the restaurant.

Before you check out Angelo's full interview below, here are some of the highlights:

  • "I'm not formally trained but have had a lot of practice" - Angelo
  • Lou calls it "one of the best meals I've ever had."
  • "We opened 14 years ago and have grown our following" -Angelo
