Mia Francesca Trattoria offers an authentic Italian Restaurant experience and has an extensive wine list of both superior New World and Old World wines. Many are from Italy, the largest producer of wine in the world. International connoisseurs often refer to Italy as the “enotria” or “land of wine” because of its rich diversity of grape varieties.
Italian vine-growing conditions are favorable for three very essential reasons:
- The abundance of Mediterranean sunshine
- Moderated by the cool mountain air currents and sea breezes
- More than 2,000 indigenous types of grapes
Wine lovers recognize the Italian variety for its incomparable diversity, aroma and flavor. Savor our extensive wine selection while sampling the delights of our delicious meat and cheese board (Chef Zack’s selection of artisan cheese and charcuterie, olives, fruit jam, and ciabatta crostini).
After the wonderful beginnings of dinner with both wine and fine cheese, you must try our authentic Italian pizzas. Customize and create your own unique pizza by selecting our freshest farm-to-table toppings. Choose from the following fresh vegetables brought in locally for your enjoyment: olives, mushrooms, artichokes, spinach, onion, broccoli, roasted peppers, and eggplant. You can add fresh sausage, anchovies, or meatballs; select your own cheeses to really make it unique: goat cheese, gorgonzola, mozzarella, Swiss, or fontina.
True to its Roots Italian Food
Of course, our authentic Italian pasta meals are just as delicious! You could select our classic spaghetti and meatballs in our homemade tomato basil sauce. Our Gnocchi con Pesto features sautéed potato dumplings, basil pesto, pine nuts, chopped tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. You can even add the following savory choices to your pasta dish: chicken, scallops, shrimp, steak, salmon, and meatballs.
The grand finale of any of our dinners at Mia Francesca Trattoria always includes our delicious Italian desserts. One divine choice of many guests is our Tiramisu dessert which features espresso and kahlua soaked ladyfingers with lightly sweetened mascarpone cream and cocoa powder. For those who cannot decide which of our tempting and tasty desserts to enjoy, we have assorted dessert platters (designed for sharing among two to ten people).
