As I sip my first cup of morning coffee, the welcome sight of warm spring sunshine is peeking through my window as I make my plans for an awesome Easter weekend in the Pocono Mountains
! Keeping with family tradition, I will be preparing the traditional Easter ham with all of the trimmings for my family and friends. However, this year I have decided to transport the feast to my son's house and allow him the privilege of cleaning up!
I have also decided to create a new holiday tradition by dining out Italian style on Easter Eve and have made plans to dine with friends on Saturday evening at Bella Luna Ristorante in Stroudsburg. If you like to feast upon authentic Italian cuisine in an authentic Italian atmosphere, you'll definitely want to check out this fabulous restaurant!
Just imagine a relaxing Italian dinner in a cozy Italian restaurant complete with friendly service, delicious cuisine, homemade Italian sauces and gravies and awesome live entertainment, and you'll be at Bella Luna on a Saturday evening.
I am planning to begin my meal with Parmesan Encrusted Chicken served with Giuseppe's Authentic Sicilian Gravy, which by the way happens to be the most delicious Roasted Garlic Sauce that I have ever tasted. I always seem to have a hard time deciding, so perhaps I will also order some Fried Calamari. My main course will most likely be Ravioli, topped with one of the delicious Giuseppe's Gravies served with a lovely salad. But, perhaps you would like to dine on one of the other delightful dishes. The sandwiches are fabulous too!
After you taste the wonderful sauces I'm sure that you will want to take a few jars home with you. Just ask your server, as they are available for sale.
Bella Luna is a BYOB establishment, so don't forget to bring your favorite bottle of wine to sip with your dinner and to enjoy the Saturday evening entertainment. The fabulous guitar and vocal duo, One Step Beyond will be performing on Saturday and SheilaMark Duo will entertain you with awesome accordion music and vocals on Saturday, April 30.
As always, let me know where you plan to dine and celebrate this holiday weekend in the Pocono Mountains! I hope to see you at Bella Luna Ristorante!
