Tis the Season for an Authentic Italian in Midtown Raleigh

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Merry ChristmasWith the Christmas Season upon us, we are filled with the joys of the coming of the New Year! The good times are around the corner! At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we offer the favorites of the season that will make this the most wonderful time of year for our guests and their families and friends. Take a break from shopping in the surrounding North Hills shops or plan a special dining experience for the family. Stop in for a traditional Saturday brunch or a Tuesday pizza. Dining at Mia Francesca Trattoria is always an exceptional treat!

The New Year will bring some exciting new drink specials to our menu. Of course, our authentic, homemade dishes will continue to be made from fresh, local ingredients and prepared in true northern Italian style. We offer an extensive selection of pasta dishes, pizza, salads, and a number of dishes that are much more than pasta. Stop in or make a reservation for family and friends to enjoy some of our enticing dishes:

  • Antipasti: Start the meal with fresh calamari or mussels prepared in our special sauces.
  • Pizze: We have the best pizza in Raleigh, featuring prosciutto, soppressata, mozzarella, and farm fresh vegetables.
  • Dolci: Our mouth-watering dessert selection includes traditional tiramisu, profiterales, and seasonal crème brulee.
  • Gelati and sorbetti: Choose from refreshing flavors like peach, mango, or white chocolate.

Pair that delicious meal with an equally delicious wine, from our extensive list of domestic and international wines. We feature wines by the glass and the bottle from Italy, California, Argentina, New Zealand, and Germany. Stop in on a Monday evening and enjoy a bottle of wine for 50% off.

There is always a reason to celebrate at Mia Francesca Trattoria. We invite all of our guests to join us this holiday season and into the New Year. Mia Francesca Trattoria will be open Christmas Eve until 8:00 p.m. and regular hours on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. We plan to offer some exciting menu options on these very special days for our very special guests.

We are conveniently located in the heart of the expansive North Hills shopping center, just off 440 in Midtown Raleigh.

For Christmas Eve Dinner Mia Francesca Trattoria is Your New Tradition!

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Christmas Eve holds a special place in everyone’s heart. We all remember gathering with family and enjoying the true warmth of theChristmas Eve Dinner Raleigh season. It was tradition. We planned to be there with friends and family every year. We wouldn’t miss it. It was an event.

Although many of us are now in the Triangle, and home is often hundreds of miles away, the memories of those special days are still as bright as the Christmas star.

Now is that time to start that new holiday tradition with the holiday dining experience of Mia Francesca Trattoria. Our restaurant will be open Christmas Eve from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. we want you to visit and enjoy excellence, ambiance, fine food and drink with your family and friends and make new holiday memories to treasure forever. Our delicious authentic Tuscany Italian style cuisine at Mia Francesca is perfect for couples, families and groups to gather and be served culinary delights from wonderful and attentive wait staff.

Restaurant Open Christmas Eve Dinner

In the perfect holiday season location of North Hills in Midtown Raleigh, the Christmas decorations and holiday lighting across the shopping campus bring a unique and spectacular glow to the entire area as you drive through the main mall to our restaurant. The large variety of boutiques and shops will be lit up in full visual display for all to see.

Mia Francesca’s offers a one night only special Christmas Eve dinner menu in addition to our already fabulous authentic Italian menu.

Chef Zach and his team of culinary experts have once again put together a great selection of four new Christmas Eve Specials: Our Gamberi con Romesco features scrumptious grilled prosciutto wrapped prawns (shrimp), wild arugula, fresh oven dried tomatoes, fresh bell peppers; accented with marcona almonds, lemon, and basil oil.  Our Branzino con Pastinaca highlights our fresh Pan Seared Sea Bass with a parsnip puree, fresh baby carrots, fresh asparagus, salsa verde, espelette, and parsnip “hay”. 

While you are dining at Mia Francesca’s on Christmas Eve, imagine Santa Claus traveling around the whole world on this night delivering presents to every good little girl and boy.

Rumors have it that Santa loves our Panetone Budino di Pane, which contains heavenly Eggnog-Panetone bread pudding, pecans, dried fruit, cinnamon, and a warm brandy sauce.  Mrs. Claus allows him to have our desserts just once a year because he needs to fit down all those chimneys!

Of course, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, with his nose so bright, is guiding Santa’s sleigh with all the other reindeer this Christmas Eve night!  It truly is the time for “Ho, ho, ho!”

This is the night that only happens once a year and it is one to enjoy! Dine with us at Mia Francesca this magical Christmas Eve!
