Mia Francesca Trattoria, located in North Hills, Midtown Raleigh, offers several Northern Italian menu items that come with delightful sauces. Our kitchen knows that sauces add a special flavor, moistness, and visual appeal to our savory dishes and desserts. Our homemade Italian sauces reflect the rich variety of our entrees, pizza and pasta dishes.
- Dressing salads: Our Seasonal Autumn Salad has apple cider vinaigrette; our Panzanella Salad features red wine vinaigrette. Prosciutto e Melone comes with balsamic vinaigrette, and our Dinner Insalata has a wonderfully light lemon- based balsamic dressing.
- Dressing pasta dishes: Our homemade tomato basil sauce is a principal ingredient on our Penne and our Spaghetti and Linguini come with a pleasing Alfredo cream sauce. Interestingly enough, Americans usually think of tomatoes with they think of Italian cuisine, the tomato plant is not native to Italy and using tomatoes in Italian cuisine did not become popular until the late 18th century!
- Dressing meats, fish, and vegetables: Our Mussels appetizer can be flavored with a spicy marinara sauce or garlic white wine sauce, our New York Strip comes with a Pancetta (bacon) mushroom marsala sauce, our Veal comes with a Fontina (cheese) cream sauce, and our Pollo Diavolo comes with a spicy Pomodoro (tomato) sauce.
- Enhancing the taste of desserts: Our Tiramisu has ladyfingers (soaked in espresso and kahlua) with lightly sweetened mascarpone cream and cocoa powder while our Profiteroles feature delicate toasted cream puffs filled with pistachio gelato and topped with chocolate sauce.
