For Italian Fare in the Triangle, the Secret Is in the Sauce

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

MF WineIMG_7352_HDRDecisions about where to eat Italian food often begin with the authentic taste of the sauce. Conversations around why a pizza is so good are always start with the sauce and the fresh toppings. At Mia Francesca Trattoria, our sauce is what makes our pizza, pasta, and all our authentic Italian dishes truly special. We make everything from scratch every day; our sauce, our pasta, and all of our dishes are all made in-house with the freshest local ingredients from North Carolina farms and gardens.

At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we offer the amazing tastes of Northern Italy, and we are conveniently located in North Hills, the heart Raleigh and the Triangle. Executive Chef Zachary VanGaasbeek chooses fresh ingredients from the Midtown Farmers Market, local farmers and suppliers, for all of our delicious dishes. Mia Francesca Trattoria is a proud participant in the NC Agriculture Department’s “Got to Be NC” program, celebrating fresh local North Carolina ingredients while bringing the hills of Tuscany to North Hills.

The perfect sauce always should be complemented by the perfect drink. And that is even a better statement when the beverages are on special! Make the start of the work week both fun and special with our Monday Wine Special. All of our wines are 50% off every single Monday from 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Start your Monday afternoon and evening with a tasty slice of the best pizza in Raleigh, made from scratch with fresh tomatoes and basil, and paired with a glass of Italian red wine from Tuscany. In Raleigh and across the Triangle, there is no better moment.

The Best Pizza in the Triangle is Closer than You Think

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Mia F PizzaBalancing the harmony of cheeses and flavor creates traditional pizza that makes the difference. And Mia Francesca Trattoria, the Northern-Italian restaurant located in Raleigh, makes it like it’s been delivered straight from Mother Italy. Our location for Tuscany Italian fare and great pizza is just 20 minutes from most everywhere in the Triangle, in North Hills off 440. Pizza lovers who are always on the lookout for some of the best pizza in the Triangle choose Mia Francesca for traditional pizza pie with generous toppings.

We stay true to our Northern Italian roots in every slice as we assemble the ingredients in our award winning kitchen. Our Executive Chef and his team simply prepare our house made pizza as a truly decadent creation that puts a huge smile on every guest.

Originally cooked in Naples, Italy, today’s Mia Francesca pizza evolved from historic flat bread dishes first baked back in the 1800’s. It is interesting to note that pizza became very popular shortly after World War II, as veterans stationed in Italy returned home to the U.S.A. introducing their hometowns to this new found Italian delight! Now, in 2015, pizza is so popular, that on any given day in the United States, 13 % of the population consumes it.

Mia Francesca pizza has everyone’s seal of approval, and it comes complete with a scrumptious crust, blankets of fresh melted cheese, and house-made dough created in small batches; each pizza is fully loaded with homemade tomato sauce, meats, and vegetables. All meld together to make personal pizza history for each and every table.

Mia Francesca Trattoria offers a variety of high-quality pizzas beloved by every guest:

  • Our Diavola Pizza features eggplant, castelvetrano olives, capers, chilies, tomato sauce, and smoked mozzarella.
  • Our Fungi pizza has wild mushrooms, ricotta cheese, thyme, arugula, and truffle oil.
  • Our Margherita features plum tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella.
  • Our Napoletana has arugula, cherry tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, provolone, and shaved Parmesan.
  • Our Quattro Stagioni features prosciutto, artichoke, mushrooms, olive, and egg.
  • Our Salsiccia Pizza comes with juicy fennel sausage, sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, and fresh mozzarella.

For our guests who simply cannot decide from all the wonderful selections, it is perfectly okay to order a personal creation with any and every fresh ingredient available. Toppings include sausage, olives, mushrooms, artichoke, spinach, meatballs, onion, broccoli, anchovy, goat cheese, gorgonzola, mozzarella, Swiss, Fontina, roasted peppers, and eggplant.

The best pizza in the Triangle is closer than anyone thinks. The choices offered by Mia Francesca continue the tradition only found in Midtown Raleigh. The good times are right here in North Hills.
