Our Northern Italian cuisine at Mia Francesca Trattoria serves fresh locally grown corn in a variety of delectable ways. Executive Chef Zack VanGaasbeek presents a wonderfully unique summer corn pizza as well as a palate pleasing pasta dish featuring the sweetest corn found in the Triangle. We are conveniently located at the North Hills exit 8 just north of the 440 Beltline in the heart of Mid-Town Raleigh. Our classically trained professional kitchen team creatively prepares a wide variety of incredibly delicious appetizers and entrees using farm fresh ingredients like our locally grown corn.
Wine and Italian fare go hand-in-hand with our outstanding corn dishes; Mia Francesca Trattoria offers these fine wine pairing suggestions.
Our oaky Chardonnay wine pairs well with all our corn dishes:
- Trion 2010, Russian River, CA
- Chamisal 2011, Central Coast, CA
- Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuisse 2011, Burgundy, France
To start any warm and breezy August night out, Mia Francesca Trattoria has three outstanding corn appetizers on our menu. The Mais Risotto features savory Arborio rice, fresh corn, and roasted bell peppers with lemon, garlic, and basil. The Mais Bruschetta offers crunchy garlic toast, sweet corn, fresh goat cheese, roasted bell peppers, crispy Guanciale, and arugula. Our Fried Corn is au natural locally grown corn with Parmigiano, espellette, and truffle oil.
After enjoying our tempting summer seasonals as farm to table appetizers, try our new Summer Corn Pizza with garden fresh summer corn, Applewood smoked bacon, wild mushrooms, garlic, and mozzarella. If you are in the mood for unique pasta, our Fettuccine con Mais features fresh fettuccine, local sweet corn, Prosciutto di Parma, mushrooms, cracked black pepper, and shaved Parmigiano Reggiano. With either summer dish, our guests enjoy the taste experience.
Staying with the theme of sweetness and our scrumptious desserts, we recommend our Torta Bacio, a chocolate hazelnut mousse with cocoa nibs and chocolate crunch. To go with the dessert, try drinking one of our Italian Illy brand coffees including: Cappuccino, Espresso, Espresso Macchiato, Mocha-cino, and Café Latte. At Mia Francesca’s, make marvelous memories dining with the people you love!
