Pastas, Sauces, and Wines at Mia Francesca Trattoria in North Hills

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

MF DessertMF WineMarch is National Sauce Month and we are ready for everyone across the Triangle to enjoy the very best in Northern Italian sauces and marinades. Our award winning kitchen staff at Mia Francesca Trattoria always adds just the right sauces to our delicious farm to table lunch and dinner entrees. These sauces enhance the flavor of our fine foods and they blend perfectly with the meal to the delight of all our guests. For Tuscany Italian, sauces can truly define fresh food and are essential to our daily menu.  Everything from our finest homemade tomato sauce to our delicious marinades, we are noted for defining all of our sauces in very unique ways.

Let’s look at two of our special pasta dishes, each with distinctive sauces, and Justin Harkey, our General Manager, will recommend a wine that complements each one. Sauces play an important role in deciding the perfect wine pairing.

First, our very popular Spaghetti alla Bolognese features beef, veal, and pork as well as fresh herbs, tomato basil sauce, and Parmigiano Reggiano.  Red sauces always pair well with red wines.  We recommend our Cabernet Sauvignon, named after both the special grape and the wine it produces.  The primary taste of this excellent wine is a flavorful black current, but other overtones may include blackberry and mint.  Since Cabernets are very hearty and rich, this means they go best with our tomato-based sauces.  Mia Francesca Trattoria has four superb Cabernet Sauvignon wine selections for you to choose from every day.

Second, our delicious Pollo salsa Bianca features a farm-fresh grilled chicken breast, garlic, white wine, Alfredo cream sauce, Parmigiano, and linguini pasta. Pinot Grigio is a leaner style Italian white wine that pairs well with our cream sauces.  It has a smooth, almost silk-like flavor that leaves a wonderful impression with the most particular of connoisseurs. Mia Francesca offers two Pinot Grigio selections, both produced in the vineyards of Veneto, Italy: La Macine and Ca’ Stella.

Complete your dining experience with our chocolate sauce-covered dessert choice. Our guests love our Profiteroles, delicately toasted cream puffs filled with pistachio gelato.  They are drizzled with yummy chocolate sauce on top.  At Mia Francesca Trattoria, our pasta, sauce, and wine are just divine with or without our wonderful desserts.

Take advantage of the last two weeks in March to explore our entrees, the various sauces and their individual flavors with each visit. You find our eatery in Midtown-Raleigh at North Hills along with great shopping boutiques and more; in one of the best areas in the Triangle to stop, visit, eat and shop.

As anyone knows as they visit our restaurant, Midtown Raleigh offers the best of everything right here in North Hills.

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!
