Triangle Restaurant Week in Raleigh: Taste Northern Italian All Week Long

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

Triangle Restaurant Week Facebook logoMia Francesca Trattoria insideStarting today, Monday January 26th, right here in North Hills and running through Sunday February 1, visit Mia Francesca Trattoria during Triangle Restaurant Week to experience a special Northern Italian three-course meal at a very special price.

Triangle Restaurant Week is a great way for guests from across the Triangle to indulge in our wonderfully delicious authentic Italian cuisine. With lunch ($15) and dinner ($30) per person, our popular Tuscany Italian gourmet restaurant offers quite a value. (This does not include beverages, tax, or gratuity.) Again, this one-week celebration of culinary excellence starts tomorrow January 26 and lasts until February 1.

At Mia Francesca in Raleigh, we take great pride in having a true farm-to-table experience, serving only the freshest of ingredients. If you have never visited our Tuscany-influenced Trattoria, this is the perfect week. For the first course, diners can begin with a crisp Caesar salad or our Zuppa Minestrone soup featuring fresh winter vegetables or, at dinnertime; our Bruschette alla Romano with garlic toast, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and olive oil. All three are favorites here in Midtown Raleigh at North Hills.

While mingling with fellow guests at white linen tables, our second course will arrive in all of its tasty glory. Our professional kitchen staff, led by Executive and Iron Chef Zack VanGaasbeek, prepares everything with perfection in mind.

Mia Francesca offers five mouth-watering main course options for Triangle Restaurant Week (TRW):

  • Spaghetti Bolognese: beef, pork, and veal meatballs along with fresh herbs, tomato basil sauce, and Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Panino alla Parmigiano: breaded chicken breast topped with tomato basil sauce and mozzarella served on ciabatta (lunch)
  • Insalata di Cavolfior: roasted cauliflower, arugula, endive, radiccio, golden raisins, and pear-walnut vinaigrette (lunch)
  • Pollo alla Romano: roasted chicken breast with garlic, shallots, rosemary, lemon, olive oil and roasted potatoes (dinner)
  • Salmon Caponata : grilled salmon, eggplant, winter squash, currants, capers, fennel, olive oil (dinner)

Finally, finish your culinary experience with a divine dessert. Mia Francesca offers the Italian classic Tiramisu with ladyfingers soaked in espresso and rum with mascarpone cheese and cocoa. Alternatively, at dinner, guests can have our vanilla-mascarpone Cheesecake with graham cracker crumble topped with raspberry sauce and vanilla anglaise. A sweet ending to a pleasurable dining experience!

Come in and enjoy the best that Mia Francesca offers during Triangle Restaurant Week. This is the week to enjoy, so let the fun begin all the way through Super Bowl XLIX!

The Reviews are in from the Raleigh Trip Advisor

Mia Francesca profiterolesMia Francesca asparagusMia Francesca Trattoria, located at North Hills in Midtown Raleigh, would like to highlight a recent Trip Advisor review from Senior Reviewer Dave K from Raleigh. Dave titled his review, Fresh and high quality ingredients with excellent preparation.” As a participating restaurant in the Got to Be NC agriculture program, Mia Francesca offers the freshest of ingredients. We indeed are a farm fresh to table restaurant that everyone loves and enjoys.

“For starters, don’t overlook the salads. The lentils with goat cheese and the fresh asparagus are excellent.” Dave loves the Lentils and Spinaci, which feature warm lentils with spinach and goat cheese, as well as our Asparagi Insalata with fresh asparagus, blue cheese, and tomato. “For appetizers, the calamari is a very nice portion with tasty sauces.” Dave enjoys our very popular Calamari Fritti, which is lightly fried in a spicy marinara sauce.

“For pasta… the Spaghetti Bolognese might be standard fare for many, however, Mia Francesca kicks it up with pulled pork. It is very smooth and tasty: a winner every time.” Dave knows our North Carolina inspired Spaghetti alla Bolognese is loaded with beef, veal, pork, fresh herbs, and tomato basil sauce topped with Parmigiano Reggiano.

“If you have any room left, the profiteroles are outstanding with pistachio gelato. You won’t find this in many places in Raleigh.” Our Profiteroles are delicate cream puffs toasted and filled with pistachio gelato and topped with a divinely homemade chocolate sauce. This is one of just many decadent choices from our Dessert (Dolci) menu.

“For beverages, if you are a wine drinker, try the…Pinot Grigio.” By the glass, two excellent Pinot Grigio options are Le Macine and Ca’ Stella Veneto. By the bottle, two very popular Pinot Grigio choices this time of year are Dantello and Baroncini Veneto.

Thank you, Dave K, for letting us share your review and recommendation with our blog post audience. It is the holiday season and we bring North Carolina and Tuscany Region in Central Italy together for you each and every day!

Remember it is the holiday season and Mia Francesca Trattoria can host your office party, dinner party or holiday get together. Call us today and make your reservation.
