I've only been to Sette Luna in Easton three times, but each visit makes me want to go back for more food more often. My most recent experience bolstered my opinion that this is one of the best authentic Italian restaurants in Lehigh Valley.

We started with an outstanding cheese plate, which my former cheesemonger friend, Michele, deemed excellent. The tre colore (three color) salad of Belgian endive, radicchio and arugula had the bitterness of the tender greens offset with olive oil and lemon with pepper and sprinkles of sea salt. "Delicious" doesn't do it justice. My entree, a simple pasta with Bolognese sauce, demonstrated the kitchen's ability to make even the most traditional dish sublime. The meat sauce was thick and rich (obviously from hours of gentle simmering) and studded with diced aromatic vegetables.

I must add that our waitress was affable, knowledgeable and attentive. You come to a restaurant like Sette Luna expecting good service, which makes exceptional service that much more impressive.

I could eat here once a week and not tire of the experience.
