Midtown Raleigh’s Delicious Northern Italian Cuisine is “To Simply Dine For”

Monday, January 5th, 2015

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photography-assortment-fresh-vegetables-image18358907Our management and staff believe that Mia Francesca Trattoria is arguably the best Tuscan-Italian restaurant in the Triangle. It is easy to get to from anywhere; just take the North Hills exit (8 B) off the 440 Beltline at Six Forks. We are located inside the vast entertainment complex along with luxury boutiques, large department stores, and movie theater screens. In fact, the famous Midtown landmark, the Marriott Renaissance, is right next store. There is so much to explore here in Midtown, and centrally located, Mia Francesca is convenient for anyone to come here and enjoy our ever changing menu.

Not only are we near the best places that the Capital City offers, we enjoy meeting everyone who dines with us. Our guests always receive a warm and friendly greeting as they begin the dining experience and enjoy our top-notch customer service.

Mia Francesca offers all of this in a rustic atmosphere within a spacious and comfortable dining area:

  • Our gracious host /hostess always seats guests with a smile
  • Our knowledgeable wait staff is attentive to the needs of every diner
  • Our professional culinary-trained chefs prepare each tasty item with farm to table finesse

Mia Francesca is known for its ample and varied array of unique appetizers. We recommend that our guests begin with one in mind. For example, Our Winter Risotto is Arborio Rice, local winter squash, Swiss chard, lemon, garlic, and basil. Our Prosciutto con Rucola features fresh Prosciutto di Parma, smoked mozzarella, marcona almonds, arugula, lemon, olive oil, and Saba.

After a wonderful appetizer, try one of our delicious dinner meals. Consider our Salmon Aspragi con Granchi which comes with fresh grilled salmon, blue crab, wild mushrooms, asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, white wine, garlic, lemon, and balsamic. And our Costoletta di Maiale features an ample cider glazed pork chop, sweet potato puree, Brussel sprouts, pancetta, caramelized onions, and apple gastrique.

Finally, complete your Mia Francesca dining experience with one of our heavenly desserts. Many of our visitors love our Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake with pumpkin spice-cream cheese filling, graham cracker crust, candied pumpkin seeds, and vanilla anglaise. For the majority of our guests who often have difficulty deciding which dessert to choose from, we recommend the Dessert Platter, Executive Chef Zachary VanGaasbeek’s assorted selections designed for sharing with up to ten people. Along with dessert, sip one of our soothing Illy brand coffees such as Cappuccino, Espresso, Caramel Macchiato, and Mocha-cino.

Here in Raleigh and across the Triangle, Mia Francesca Trattoria continues to serve the most savory authentic Italian cuisine around that is “to simply dine for”.

The Freshest Fish in the Triangle Prepared the Italian Way

Monday, June 9th, 2014

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-vintage-fresh-fish-seafood-stamps-image25036883Where can the most die-hard food lover here in North Carolina find the freshest fish? At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we pride ourselves in serving only the freshest of fare. Our produce is farm-to-table garden-crisp and our fish is dock-to-dish fresh! We are the largest restaurant in Midtown Raleigh at North Hills and our sources supply us with the best fish, meat, vegetables and dairy products.

Did you realize that eating fish is very healthy for you? It is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12). The abundant content of omega-3 fatty acids in fish receives the most attention by doctors and the press. It is good to know that the fish we serve at Mia Francesca is not only fresh and delicious, but nutritious as well!

Our fish dishes are always extremely popular and our guests enjoy our healthy entrees that both taste and look good. Our Salmon con Farro is grilled salmon, ancient grain farro, radiccio, spring onions, citrus, grilled lemon vinaigrette, and salsa verde. Our Striped Bass con Farro, is pan seared striped bass that we serve with ancient grain faro, radiccio, spring onions, citrus, grilled lemon vinaigrette, and salsa verde. Our Salmon Asparagi con Granchi features grilled salmon, blue crab, wild mushrooms, fresh asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, white wine, garlic, lemon and balsamic; it is the best of blend of fish and veggies.

Our wine list is extensive and we recommend pairing a rose wine with your salmon. The dry, mineral driven character and typically acute acidity in rose wines make for an exceptionally accommodating salmon pairing partner.

Our Syrah wine collection has some delightful rose wine bottles:

  • Dog Ridge “The Pup” McLaren Vale, Australia
  • Wakefield Estate, 2009, Clare Valley, Australia
  • Casa Rivas Gran Reserva, 2009, Argentina

We get our fish fresh from the local markets. Guests can relax and enjoy warm conversations with family and friends while our award-winning kitchen does an amazing job preparing these delectable entrees. Be assured that everyone who visits Mia Francesca in North Hills Midtown Raleigh can expect nothing less than the freshest of fish with every culinary experience. Make reservations today as we reel in your glorious meal!
