“More than Pasta” Means the Best Italian Dining in North Hills

Monday, October 19th, 2015

CapreseGreat Italian cooking can often mean a wide variety of pasta dishes. What if the taste for Italian food is for more than pasta? In Midtown Raleigh, Mia Francesca Trattoria in North Hills offers a full and ever expanding menu of farm to table and “direct from the coast” fresh, each and every day. Our homemade dishes will satisfy everyone’s appetite for an authentic Italian meal and we feature seafood, pizza, salad, and a number of other favorite foods, from steak to fish. We also offer a gluten-free menu for our guests who love Italian dishes but need a little different array of ingredients.

Stop by Mia Francesca for lunch or dinner to enjoy our rustic atmosphere, our friendly service, and a complete menu that includes so much more than pasta:

  • Salads: Add chicken, shrimp, scallops, steak, salmon, or calamari to any of our salads to make a hearty, healthy meal. Our salads feature local farm fresh ingredients like tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, string beans, and greens. Try an enticing Caprese, Asparagi Insalata, or the house favorite, Insalata ala Francesca.
  • Seafood: Fresh from the farm and the coast, our seafood dishes feature delicious fish selections, combined with the perfect pairing of vegetables, in delectable dishes prepared just for our special guests. Seafood lovers will have to experience our Sea Scallop Risotto, Snapper Bagna Calda, Salmon Fresca, or the local North Carolina Flounder in Lamina.
  • Pizza: Mia Francesca Trattoria has the best pizza in Raleigh! Top that lunch or dinner pizza with prosciutto, Applewood bacon, arugula, broccoli, goat cheese, artichokes, or mushrooms to make it that much more special. Our mouth-watering pizzas include Quattro Stagioni, Napoletana, and Salsiccia pizza. Choose from an extensive list of additional fresh ingredients to customize that pizza to make it a perfect meal.

Reservations are encouraged and easy to make, for dinner on Friday and Saturday, and for large private dining groups! Our expansive dining area has room for everyone. Join us today for an authentic Italian dish that is more than pasta!

Mia Francesca Trattoria is conveniently located in the heart of Midtown Raleigh, adjacent to the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel, in the midst of the expansive North Hills shopping mall, between 440 East and Six Forks Road.
