July is National Culinary Arts Month!

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Mia PieCenturies ago, food used to be what people needed to survive. Over the recent decades, food has appreciated into an art driven by both looks and taste. Our award winning culinary chefs and kitchen staff at Mia Francesca Trattoria consistently serves the most delectable and eye-catching Italian cuisine in Raleigh and the Triangle. Alongside shopping, salons, theatres, and more at North Hills, our Northern Italian restaurant is located in Midtown Raleigh, the heart of the Central Carolina region. July is the month all of us can observe and appreciate the beauty of how Italian food brings friends, family, and coworkers together.

As thousands of people watch the Food Network and other related cable channels, they are learning about fine cooking and dining from a growing number of these television programs; in just the past few years, there has been a boom in appreciation of the culinary arts. Executive Chef Zack and his professional kitchen staff skillfully prepare meals that are as pleasing to the palate as they are to the eye.

For example, our very popular Meat and Cheese Board appetizer has Chef Zack’s selection of artisan cheese and charcuterie, olives, fruit jam, and ciabatta crostini. With our scrumptious main courses, our guests have wide variety of savory choices, including our Lobster Cappellacci, which is Maine lobster filled with fresh pasta, spring peas, baby spinach, tarragon, and a delicious lobster cream sauce. Another excellent choice is our Fussilli con Pesto or corkscrew shaped pasta, basil pesto, fresh string beans, fresh mozzarella, and pine nuts. Mia Francesca is known for its authentic Tuscany Italian pizza like the Napoletana, which has fresh arugula, cherry tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, provolone, and shaved Parmesan. This choice is one of the favorites in our lounge and bar area.

Finish every meal with one of our Dessert Platters, featuring assorted chef’s selections designed for sharing among and larger groups. Our Duo of Cannolis could be on the platter, and our cannolis come with a pistachio ricotta filling, chocolate chips, pistachio orange brittle, and a peanut butter mousse filling candied peanuts, and raspberry agrodolce. Be sure to end your Northern Italian experience with one of our many Italian Illy Coffee choices like Cappuccino, Espresso, Caramel Macchiato, and Mocha-cino.

July is the perfect time to visit Mia Francesca Trattoria. After all, it is Culinary Arts Month!

Mother’s Day Celebrates its 100th Anniversary

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Mom DT 30267086Did you know the year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day as an official day of recognition? President Woodrow Wilson signed a holiday measure naming the second Sunday of May a day for “public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country” in 1914.

Moms and America have a great history! Our best memories often contain the thoughts of the wonderful lady who gave birth to us, comforted us when we were sick or sad, and gave us advice as we grew. Mother’s Day is a special time of honor.

It is with this very popular holiday in mind that Mia Francesca Trattoria celebrates this very special event with a marvelous Mother’s Day Brunch.

Bring Mom and the rest of your family to dine with us for a brunch everyone will enjoy and remember. We are located in the North Hills shopping area of Midtown Raleigh. Your family will appreciate our delicious authentic Northern Italian cuisine. And we offer farm to table freshness with every aspect of the meal prepared by our classically trained culinary chefs. Come enjoy unique one-of-a-kind offerings in our friendly and rustic atmosphere.

In Italy, just like in the Triangle, Mom is the heart of everything. Much of life centers around the family dining together. The deepest ties of love and friendship are developed and strengthened while enjoying conversation, laughter and togetherness. Grow closer together celebrating Mother’s Day at Mia Francesca Trattoria. You will love the experience.

Our Mother’s Day Brunch includes these four wonderfully delicious entrées. Our Salmon comes with wild mushrooms, local green garlic, chopped tomatoes, and balsamic. Our savory Chicken Piccata features pan-seared chicken breasts, capers, lemon juice, garlic, and white wine sauce. Our succulent Roasted Pork Loin Pancetta comes with Spanish onions, thyme, garlic, and pork jus. And our tender Prime Rib comes sliced to order with horseradish cream and natural jus.

Make every day a holiday with us. No matter the occasion, we have several private dining areas available for celebrations and events that include:

  • Wedding rehearsal dinners

Our outdoor patio is delightful to use during this time of year. Mom and the whole family will love you when you suggest everyone dine at Mia Francesca Trattoria!
