MFT wine bottles MFT Wikipedia Vineyards Chianti RegionDid you know that Italy is the top five for the most popular international tourist destinations in the world? That is no surprise to Mia Francesca Trattoria, the North Hills restaurant that features the best Tuscany-Italian cuisine in the Triangle. We are located next to the landmark Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel in Midtown Raleigh. Our culinary focus is a fresh farm and sea to table daily menu that is so authentic that many of our guests are convinced they are dining in foothills of Northern Italy.

In the home country of Italy, Tuscany is one of the most popular regions for tourists, locals, fine wines and delicious food. Tuscany is a large region in the Northwest that features a varied landscape from the beautiful foothills and mountains to the tranquil seaside. It’s travel attractions include historic cities like Florence where the arts, great wines, and spectacular local foods are the cornerstone of what the area is all about, from the medieval hill towns to the beautiful countryside.

The Chianti Classico wine region in Tuscany, a popular Italian vacation destination, lies between the larger cities of Florence and Siena. The Chianti region has picturesque villages, wineries, and gorgeous landscapes.

Mia Francesca Trattoria offers three delightful and unforgettable Chianti red wine selections from our wine list:

  • Castello Sinnino Chianti Riserva
  • Ruffino Chianti Reserva Tan Label (2010)
  • Amadeo Chianti (2010)

Montepulciano is a beautiful walled city in Tuscany, built on a sloping and narrow limestone ridge. Montepulciano has one of the most impressive main squares in Tuscany and has many beautiful Renaissance buildings. The wines produced here are phenomenal. Wine lovers here in Raleigh can enjoy our superb Tenuta del Priore Campotino Montepulciano (2010).

After choosing a fine wine tableside, please select one of our delectable appetizers. For lunch or dinner, we offer the tastiest authentic Italian pizza and most heavenly authentic Italian pasta. Complete your epicurean experience with one of our divine desserts including our Dessert Platter; it is filled with Executive Chef Zach’s selection of the day’s temptations to share with up to ten people. No matter how you slice it, we love pleasing our guests with true Italian fanfare.

Italian Cuisine is Love at First Bite

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Mia FrancescaRomantic Italy is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Italy’s picturesque seaside villages, breathtaking country sides, lakes, and historic cities are full of gorgeous surroundings and views. While Mia Francesca Trattoria is located in Midtown Raleigh at North Hills, our fine Italian cooking and ambiance transports our guests to an authentic Italian experience that shares the heart of Northern Italy. When they take their first taste, it is love at first bite.

Our trained professional chefs, like our Head Chef Zach, teach that it is all about the quality and freshness of the delicious ingredients that are used. One of our visitor’s favorites is Fagiolini Insalata, with farm-to-table fresh string beans, outstanding onions, and tasty tomatoes. It is delicious as well as in true Italian in green, white, and red colors.

A conversation involving Italian food and culture must always include the love of fine wine. We offer three recommended Italian red wines to enjoy along with a fantastic Mia Francesca meal pairing:

  • Villa Girardi Amarone: produced in the northern Veneto region near Venice pairs well with our Filletto con Patate—grilled beef tenderloin, rosemary potatoes, fennel gratin, and garlic herb butter
  • Chiarlo “Totoniano” Barolo Nebbiolo: made in the Lange Hills of the Piedmont, is a perfect accompaniment to our Shrimp e Piselli Risotto which features Arborio rice, gulf shrimp, spring peas, asparagus, lemon, garlic, basil, and pea shoots
  • Castello Sinnino Chianti Riserva: produced in Tuscany, in central Italy near Florence, is one of the most well-known Italian wines in the world; it pairs nicely with our Spaghetti alla Bolognese which masterfully combines beef, veal, pork, fresh herbs, tomato basil sauce, and Parmigiano Reggiano

At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we do the gourmet Italian cooking so our guests can enjoy the experience right beside their special someone. Now that’s amore! After all, what is better than love at first bite?
