Monday, March 9th, 2015

Mia F brushettaNorthern Italian food is extremely popular here in North Carolina and across the United States. Actually, when we think about it, tasting great Italian food fills all of us with good thoughts. Who doesn’t like bowls of pasta and hearty sauces? Mia Francesca Trattoria in North Hills, Midtown Raleigh, is a true Tuscany  Italian restaurant that focuses on both the mood and food. The best of Italy is right around the corner for many Triangle residents. Raleigh’s 440 Beltline at Six Forks (North Hills) is the world headquarters for Italian comfort food and all the benefits.

Each fresh seasonal menu creation comes to every table expertly served by our professional staff; and our culinary team uses only farm and ocean fresh ingredients to produce all of our “made from scratch” favorites. Executive Chef Zack VanGaasbeek and his entire Mia Francesca team are dedicated to the fine art of Italian cooking and pleasing our guests with the finest preparations available.

Mia Francesca believes in comfort food where an occasional, even weekly indulgence puts a smile on every guest. We always remember that comfort food just tastes good. Recent studies have suggested that the foods we love, both the healthy foods and the comfort cravings, improve our moods, create positive thoughts, and promote a great well-being.
