Spring flowers, quick showers, sunshine, and family gatherings mark the heart of spring in the Triangle, especially at Mia Francesca Trattoria. Bringing family and friends together as everything warms up nicely here in Raleigh is the plan. It’s time to enjoy an authentic Tuscany Italian celebration right here in Midtown.
Our professional kitchen staff’s mission is to bring farm fresh vegetables, meats and cheeses from our local farmer’s market and regional producers, and seafood fresh from the Atlantic Ocean, together on our ever changing menu to each and every one of our guests for family gatherings, anniversaries, festivities, and everyday meals. Executive Chef Zach VanGaasbeek, our award winning Iron Chef, selects only the best of the best (see picture); either locally grown in the Triangle region or North Carolina raised and especially prepared for our guest’s occasions, business meetings and dinner enjoyment. Spring and early summer are the perfect times of year to stop in for a cold drink, a glass of fine wine, and a stress reducing appetizer after work.
We love families here in Raleigh too, and our Tavoli di Amici, served around the table family style, is an Italian tradition and part of our growing success here at Mia Francesca Trattoria. Our guests always appreciate a delicious Northern Italian meal in our comfortable rustic atmosphere. It helps to bring out the best of the rest of the day. Our delicious pasta and sauces are very specially made, fresh from scratch and filled with flavor.
Our guests love our delicious homemade pastas seven days a week:
- Fettuccine paired with peas, prosciutto di parma, wild mushrooms, pea shoots, shaved parmigiano reggiano
- Linguini in an enticing dish fresh del Mare, from the sea, with Sea Scallops, gulf shrimp, mussels, spicy marinara, and olive oil
- Penne combined with farm fresh vegetables and goat cheese, or with Gulf shrimp
- Spaghetti served with traditional meatballs or with beef, veal, and pork in a tomato basil sauce
- Cappellaci, a dumpling pasta stuffed with fresh lobster, spring peas, and baby spinach
Mia Francesca is centrally located in beautiful North Hills, within the backdrop of Raleigh’s most exciting open air shopping experience. We are found at the northwest corner of Six Forks and the 440 Beltline at 4100 Main at North Hills St. Remember, spring is the season to enjoy the outdoors; stop in, walk around in the sunshine, enjoy the spring air, visit our neighboring shops, and enjoy a great Tuscany Italian lunch or dinner with friends and family.
Being in and around Raleigh is always a lot of fun, and joining us in the heart of Midtown Raleigh to celebrate spring and early summer with all of its happy occasions will be something to enjoy and remember. After a long day of work, or during a warm weekend of relaxation, we want you as a guest. In the deep traditions of Northern Italy, we are proud to say we are Mia Francesca Trattoria!
