3 Ways to Plan a Distinctive Event Italian Style in Raleigh

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Catering MiaAs we head into the warmer weather seasons across the Triangle, we all are beginning to plan our annual array of spring get-togethers. Soon everyone will be heading to reunions, parties, and quarterly business meetings. Families come together for Easter and wonderful weekend parties. Spring is the time of year to connect with college friends and neighbors, or celebrate a special anniversary. And there is no greater fun than a surprise party. At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we offer our casually sophisticated venue, our authentic Tuscany Italian menu selections, and our stellar service that make any special event that much more special when celebrated with us in North Hills and Midtown Raleigh.

Mia Francesca is proud to feature two beautifully appointed, rustic, private dining rooms, each suitable for up to 60 guests:

  • Downstairs (handicap accessable): Our fully private room is perfect for presentations, inportant business meetings, or any situation where full privacy is desired.  
  • Upstairs (accessable only by stairs): The semi-private space resembles a Tuscan Wine Cellar, complete with a vaulted brick ceiling, and a large balcony that overlooks the main dining room below.  The space is perfect for family gatherings, rehearsal dinners, birthday celebrations, or any other group that wants to feel a part of the action of a busy restaurant, while still having a space all to themselves.  Whichever your preference, we have a large variety of food and beverage packages to fully accommodate any budget.  Screens and projectors are also available for any presentation need. 

Our on-site Mia Francesca Events Manager assists our private dining guests with menu selections, decorating options, and all of the logistics that might be necessary to ensure that each event is successful and enjoyable. Mia Francesca Trattoria prepares authentic, house-made meals for all of our special guests and our events menu is no exception.

We are pleased to offer three wonderful selections for private dining:

  • Family Style Private Dining: Following the Italian tradition of family meals, our Tavoli di Amici (Table of Friends) selections for large groups are served family-style. Choose from the family lunch menu, dinner menu, or children’s menu.
  • Plated Private Dining: A more formal option to Tavoli di Amici, and more suited to business meetings and other more structured gatherings, the plated private menu allows each guest to choose their own salad, entrée, and dessert. Select from the lunch menu or dinner menu.
  • Cocktail and Appetizer Reception: Our private dining areas are the perfect spot for an informal party with appetizers and drinks.

Mia Francesca can cater any event regardless of size. In fact, we cater the entire Triangle. And our team is here to please. Let us bring our Northern Italian approach of simple, rustic, and local ingredients to our table and yours for every catering function that is planned this spring.

For everyone at Mia Francesca Trattoria, catering the needs of Midtown Raleigh and the entire Triangle is a privilege; we offer complete catering menus for weddings, formal dining receptions, award banquets, engagement parties, formals, corporate dinners, business meetings and a wide variety of parties.

Our complete and flexible catering menus feature only the finest made from scratch authentic Italian cuisine. We can offer our full services directly to any offsite location. We do the cooking and you provide the location and the celebration. Whatever you event or party needs are, we can help.

Contact our Events Manager to request a consultation to help plan that next special event. Then, gather friends, family, and business associates for a meal and an event they will soon not forget. Mia Francesca Trattoria is conveniently located in the heart of North Hills, just off 440 and Six Forks Road, in Midtown Raleigh. We are more than pasta!

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
  • Family reunions
  • Birthday parties
  • Anniversary celebrations
  • Retirement send-offs
  • Bat Mitzvahs
  • Bar Mitzvahs
  • Baptisms
  • First Communions
  • Confirmations
  • Networking events
  • Quarterly Meetings

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!
