How to Enjoy Gluten-Free “Italian Style” in the Heart of Raleigh

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Vlado, fdpCrispy farm-fresh vegetables, delicious seafood, and pasta are the highlights of our gluten free menu at Mia Francesca Trattoria. Our award winning kitchen prepares naturally simple and authentic dishes, sautéed and pan roasted, that fit in with a diet that needs to be gluten-free. In addition to our fantastic Penne dishes, we also have an extensive selection of other specialty dishes made with the freshest ingredients, including vegetables, veal, chicken and fish selections. We even offer a variety of options for gluten-free desserts!

What could be more enjoyable than our gluten-free recipes and dishes from our Tuscany- inspired list of entrées that remains deliciously Northern Italian, yet each one is prepared and served in the heart of North Hills and the very popular Midtown Raleigh corridor? Bring the entire family, including those who can enjoy our regular lunch and dinner menus; together, everyone can enjoy the great food and great times at Mia Francesca! We have something for everyone!

Mia Francesca Trattoria’s gluten-free menu includes a mouth-watering list of penne pasta dishes made fresh, served directly to your table:  

  • Penne con Asparagi: This Tuscany delight is sautéed in a parmesan cream sauce with asparagus and pine nuts.
  • Penne Aglio e Olio: Our penne pasta is sautéed with extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, diced tomatoes, and sautéed spinach.
  • Penne al Pomodoro: For something different, we sauté gluten-free pasta in a spicy cherry tomato sauce with garlic, olive oil, and fresh herbs.

Of course, we are much “more than pasta” at Mia Francesca Trattoria. Our gluten-free lunch and dinner menu also includes a wide selection of fresh and delectable dishes; among them:

  • Pollo al Limone: Sautéed chicken breast in a lemon white wine sauce with capers and spinach.
  • Pesce del Giorno: Our fresh fish of the day roasted with wild mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach and herbs.
  • Vitello Sassi: Pan roasted veal medallions with baby artichokes, mushrooms and herbs in a brandy sauce.

It is true that authentic Italian meals can be flavorful and gluten-free! Gather friends, family, or business associates, and join us in the heart of Midtown Raleigh for a Northern Italian taste treat that fits into everyone’s resolutions. We are conveniently located in the midst of the expansive North Hills shopping mall, just off 440 and Six Forks Road. Mia Francesca is just 20 minutes from everywhere in the Triangle, from Wake Forest to Apex, and we always bring the best to your table.
