Mia Francesca Trattoria of Midtown Raleigh in North Hills offers a bountiful kid-friendly Thanksgiving Day feast each year, and there is nothing in the Triangle like it for anyone of any age. We do all the holiday presentation, work and effort, so families and friends can enjoy spending time together. Our Thanksgiving Day Buffet Menu will please everyone, even the pickiest eater.

Everyone loves the Thanksgiving classics and we have as much of the traditional foods that anyone could enjoy! Everyone loves:

  • Delicious Traditional Stuffing with corn bread, brioche, bacon lardons, leeks, and poultry jus
  • Hearty Mashed Potatoes prepared to please the biggest crowd
  • Mashed Local Sweet Potatoes loaded with that homegrown North Carolina taste
  • Tasty Green Bean Casserole combined with wild mushrooms, cream sauce, and frazzled onions
  • Real Cranberry Sauce with fresh cranberries and citrus
  • Honey Baked Country Ham with maple, brown sugar, honey, and Dijon
  • Braised Turkey Leg slowly simmered with turkey jus and sage
  • Delicately Roasted Turkey Breast seasoned with lemon, rosemary, thyme, and garlic

Since we are an authentic Tuscan-Italian restaurant in the Triangle, we have added some Italian favorites to celebrate this American holiday:

  • Our Pasta con Mozzarella features our penne pasta with tomato basil sauce, parmesan, and fresh mozzarella
  • Our Pasta con Pollo includes grilled chicken, penne pasta, and pine nuts with a delectable basil cream sauce
  • Our Salmon con Porri features pan seared Atlantic salmon with leeks, wild mushrooms, and farm fresh chopped tomatoes

Kids of every age will love our unlimited salads, cheeses, jams, fresh fruit, mixed seasonal veggies, deviled eggs, collard greens, and warm rolls. Mia Francesca holiday desserts include pecan pie bars, pumpkin pie, apple pie, tiramisu, assorted cannolis, petit fours, and flourless chocolate cake.

Make Thanksgiving Day reservations for your family and friends and enjoy the rich holiday tradition of our unique eating and dining experience. We know we will see all of our Thanksgiving guests returning from last year’s buffet.

It’s August in the Triangle and the North Carolina Corn is Simply Amazing

Executive Chef Zack VanGaasbeek presents a wonderfully unique summer corn pizza as well as a palate pleasing pasta dish featuring the sweetest corn found in the Triangle. We are conveniently located at the North Hills exit 8 just north of the 440 Beltline in the heart of Mid-Town Raleigh. Our classically trained professional kitchen team creatively prepares a wide variety of incredibly delicious appetizers and entrees using farm fresh ingredients like our locally grown corn.

Wine and Italian fare go hand-in-hand with our outstanding corn dishes; Mia Francesca Trattoria offers these fine wine pairing suggestions.

Our oaky Chardonnay wine pairs well with all our corn dishes:

  • Trion 2010, Russian River, CA
  • Chamisal 2011, Central Coast, CA
  • Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuisse 2011, Burgundy, France

To start any warm and breezy August night out, Mia Francesca Trattoria has three outstanding corn appetizers on our menu. The Mais Risotto features savory Arborio rice, fresh corn, and roasted bell peppers with lemon, garlic, and basil. The Mais Bruschetta offers crunchy garlic toast, sweet corn, fresh goat cheese, roasted bell peppers, crispy Guanciale, and arugula. Our Fried Corn is au natural locally grown corn with Parmigiano, espellette, and truffle oil.

After enjoying our tempting summer seasonals as farm to table appetizers, try our new Summer Corn Pizza with garden fresh summer corn, Applewood smoked bacon, wild mushrooms, garlic, and mozzarella. If you are in the mood for unique pasta, our Fettuccine con Mais features fresh fettuccine, local sweet corn, Prosciutto di Parma, mushrooms, cracked black pepper, and shaved Parmigiano Reggiano. With either summer dish, our guests enjoy the taste experience.

Staying with the theme of sweetness and our scrumptious desserts, we recommend our Torta Bacio, a chocolate hazelnut mousse with cocoa nibs and chocolate crunch. To go with the dessert, try drinking one of our Italian Illy brand coffees including: Cappuccino, Espresso, Espresso Macchiato, Mocha-cino, and Café Latte. At Mia Francesca’s, make marvelous memories dining with the people you love!
