Monday, June 15th, 2015

Fathers DaySunday June 21st is Father’s Day and Dad’s favorite day of the year is coming fast. How about something a little different this year? Why not get away from the socks, ties, and tools and make everyone’s favorite Father the special V.I.P (very important pop) for the whole day? Gather the family together in North Hills and bring good old Dad to Mia Francesca Trattoria for a truly special Father’s Day celebration. What better way to show appreciation for all that dear old Dad has done for the family all year than to treat him to an authentic Italian brunch or dinner prepared by our team led by Executive Chef Zach VanGaasbeek here in Midtown Raleigh?

Mia Francesca offers a hearty Sunday Brunch for the big guy, and whether its brunch, lunch, or dinner, it’s in a rustic northern Italian atmosphere he is sure to love. If he’s the outdoors type, enjoy that special meal dining outside in our open air patio area.

We offer our enticing brunch menu from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, including Father’s Day. Bring Dad and the whole family for the mouth-watering culinary event of breakfast and lunch items, prepared from the freshest local ingredients.

At Mia Francesca Trattoria, every meal is special but Father’s Day is even more extraordinary as we prepare Dad’s favorite choices:

  • Arancini Benedict – Crispy risotto, soft poached eggs,  basil hollandaise, prosciutto di parma,  and house fried potatoes
  • Eggs Amatriciana Al Forno – Baked eggs, pancetta, Spanish onions, tomato basil sauce, grilled ciabatta bread, shaved pecorino tartufo

  • Omelets – choose two fresh ingredients, including Prosciutto di Parma, sausage,  asparagus, tomato, peppers, mushrooms, onions, olives, baby  spinach, fontina, mozzarella, or parmesan
  • Steak & Eggs – if Dad is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, we offer roasted N.Y. strip steak with potatoes,   onions, peppers, spinach, and fried egg 

After 12 p.m., have Dad enjoy his favorite relaxing beverage. And we offer Bellinis and Mimosas at only $3.00 each. What better way to complement a delicious meal than with a Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar, offered every Sunday from noon until 9:00pm!

There is nothing better than treating that special guy you love with a special “brunch” day here in the Triangle. Reservations are accepted and highly recommended on Father’s Day.

Mia Francesca Trattoria is nestled in the heart of North Hills Shopping Center, which offers a number of attractions and activities for the whole family.

The Best Brunch Menu in the Triangle

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Brunch-Salads-Raleigh-NCDuring this lovely late summer season, Mia Francesca Trattoria welcomes our guests to enjoy our bountiful Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our popular brunch menu brings people from all over to enjoy this wonderful experience. We also feature fine farm to table daily selections for lunch and dinner as well.

Our delicious Frittata Saltimbocca is quite a mouthful to say, yet totally worth requesting every time for our Brunch. This Italian dish at Mia Francesca Trattoria is incredibly delightful. Frittata in Italian roughly translates to “egg-cake” and complementing the baked frittata style eggs are farm fresh vine ripe tomatoes, fontina, and arugula. Saltimbocca translates from Italian to English in a fun way as “jumps in the mouth” (meaning your taste buds awaken to its amazing flavors) and it includes our prosciutto and fresh sage. A creamy basil hollandaise covers this delightful meal.

Our quenching brunch drinks include seasonal libations, fresh juices, and milk. With any of our tasty brunch selections, we offer a variety of savory side dishes:

  • Ciabatta Toast
  • Bacon (cooked how you like it)
  • Italian Sausage
  • Two Eggs (Any Style)
  • Fresh Fruit
  • House Fried Potatoes
  • Cheesy Polenta
  • Prosciutto di Parma
  • Fluffy Pancakes

Our Brunch menu extends beyond traditional breakfast to include homemade salads, pizza, pasta, and Panini. Crisp, fresh salads like our wonderful Caesar Salad or our Piselli Insalata which shows off our farm-fresh pea pods, tomatoes, and cucumbers are a great part of brunch. Many of our guests enjoy our authentic Italian Salsiccia Pizza with fennel sausage, sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, and mozzarella. Savor our classic Spaghetti and Meatballs in an authentic Italian tomato basil sauce; it is a true favorite. Finally, try our delicious Pollo Parmesan Panini with breaded chicken breast, tomato basil sauce, and shredded mozzarella on toasted ciabatta bread along with fries. With so much to choose from, including $ 3 Mimosa/ Bellini and our mouthwatering Calamari, we make the weekend an epicurean delight for everyone who visits and enjoys.

All of our guests agree that Mia Francesca’s is the place to be! Join us here in North Hills soon. We are just off the Raleigh Beltline at exit 8B, Six Forks North (North Hills); 20 minutes from anywhere here in the Triangle. As we get closer to fall, it soon will be the best time of year to see the changing colors across the Triangle and here in Raleigh. Our rustic Tuscan-Italian restaurant is centrally located with shops, boutiques, and a movie theater at the expansive North Hills in Midtown Raleigh.

Brunch Every Weekend in Raleigh Including Easter Sunday!

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Easter Veg Grant CochraneMia Francesca Trattoria has always offered wonderful weekend and holiday brunches in North Hills Midtown Raleigh. We want to share that one of the best times for brunch is fast approaching on Easter Sunday, April 20th!

Our Tucsany Italian eatery creates brunches on a weekly basis, virtually every Saturday and Sunday of the year. We always want friends and family to enjoy great choices in one sitting that offer culinary excellence in a rustic atmosphere right in the heart of North Hills. Mia Francesca is located next to the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel. And as everyone knows, it does not have to be a special occasion to enjoy our family-focused dining experience. In fact, we want you to visit every weekend. You can count on our Northern Italian traditions!

Our unique brunch has recently been featured in the recent Saturday March 29, 2014 eatRaleigh Blog.  The local dining post discusses the fact that the Mia Francesca Brunch is its “favorite meal of the week”. When describing our eclectic array of selections, eatRaleigh writes, “Par for the course with their portion sizes, Mia Francesca’s brunch menu is massive. Not only is there an entire page of entrees to choose from, but the menu also includes a long list of brunch appetizer options.”

One of the weekend brunch favorites, Eggs Amatriciana Al Forno features baked eggs with pancetta, Spanish onions, tomato basil sauce, grilled ciabatta bread, and shaved pecorino tartufo. “The Amatriciana is the type of dish that Mia Francesca hangs their hat on, rustic and homey.  It was all of that plus filling and comforting.” 

Our authentic Arancini Benedict comes with crispy risotto, soft poached eggs, basil hollandaise, prosciutto di parma, and house fried potatoes. eatRaleigh writes, “Plump crispy risotto cakes replace the typical English muffins with creamy risotto in the middle, the hollandaise sauce, and egg yolk, it was Scrooge Mc Duck rich.”  We think so, too.

eatRaleigh finishes its review of our brunch experience with an accurate description of our guests: “For the Sunday morning meal where hipsters and church-goers meet, Mia Francesca serves as another solid option for the Midtown faithful.”

Remember our Easter Brunch and Lunch happens this Easter Sunday, April 20th.

The Easter holiday traditions are all about family, friends and great food, so bring your favorite people and the little ones to join us at our table. Don’t let this special weekend pass without our Easter Brunch Raleigh experience!

Easter Weekend is almost here! It is less than two weeks away!

We are taking reservations now for our Easter brunch Raleigh (April 20th) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 919 278 1525

So while you’re here for our brunch in Raleigh, make your own personal Bloody Mary at the Bloody Mary Bar. Over the years, the historic Bloody Mary is almost more than tomato juice and vodka; it is known around the globe as “the world’s most complex cocktail.” But at our mixing bar, we make it simple to find the right flavorings and garnishes to customize your drink. If you like your Bloody Mary spicy, we have jalapenos, cayenne peppers and Tabasco sauce. Like it Southern style? Choose a touch of bacon syrup; now that is just North Carolina!

With our restaurant’s Raleigh Brunch menu, sample as well our uniquely Northern Italian slant on the traditional North Carolina Southern favorite, shrimp and grits, our Polenta e Gamberi. You’ll enjoy spicy sautéed shrimp with fire-roasted red peppers, caramelized onions and sautéed baby spinach. Besides the shrimp and grits, our Raleigh brunch menu also includes Arancini Benedict, which incorporates sun-dried tomato basil hollandaise, paired with crispy risotto, soft poached eggs and prosciutto de Parma. This is nothing like any Eggs Benedict you’ve ever tasted!

For our brunch in Raleigh our specialty bread is made the true Italian way with a pleasant touch of the South: bourbon vanilla bean batter-soaked grilled bread, topped with candied walnuts, with maple whipped cream covered in warm strawberry balsamic compote. And expect all of the expected in traditional favorites: frittatas, eggs, bacon, omelets and fluffy pancakes to fill out our lengthy menu.
