Fun, Family and Gelato at Mia Francesca in North Hills

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

rome negli anna cinquanta a monte carotto wikemedia.orgEveryone in the Triangle knows that there are a wide variety of kid-friendly places here in Raleigh area. Each restaurant typically offers quick food, tokens, crayons, and a fast experience. Here in North Hills, we want each family member dining with us to enjoy great Northern Italian food, great service and a simple family focus that welcomes children at every table. We know that each and every day, the main ingredient at Mia Francesca in North Hills is always you!

Children who dine with us love our awesome choices on the Kid’s Menu, which features our authentic Italian pasta, our “made from scratch” pizza, and our deliciously tender chicken.

If the kids like savory pasta and what youngster does not, Mia Francesca prepares it one of three tasty ways; and it’s always their choice. They just pick a wonderful flavor like rich butter, homemade tomato sauce, or subtle cream sauce and then sit back, twirl the fork and love it. If they are in the mood for pizza, each child can have a special and unique pie with cheese, mushrooms, or sausage.  Our moist and delicious chicken is always a huge favorite and comes with the choice of either fries or broccoli. Every kid’s meal arrives at tableside with the choice of a soft drink, milk, or juice.

Finally every child finishes their meal with a free scoop of gelato.  Gelato, as many know, is the Italian word for “ice cream”.  We offer special varieties of this wonderful treat made in authentic Mia Francesca style; very unique and traditionally Italian. Our gelato consists of milk, cream, various sugars, and flavoring usually blended with our fresh fruit and nut purees.

It is kid trivia time! The Florentine cook, Bernardo Buontalenti, is said to have invented modern ice cream in 1565, as he presented his recipe and his innovative refrigerating techniques to Catherine de’ Medici, an Italian Duchess who then introduced it to France after she married the French King, Henry II. Soon the news and tastes of gelato spread to the rest of Europe.

It is very interesting to note that the popularity of gelato increased in the 1920’s and 1930’s in the northern Italian city of Varese, where the very first gelato cart was pushed down cobble stone streets.  The popularity of Mia Francesca’s version of the famous gelato in Raleigh is amazing!  Come see and then taste first-hand why every youngster loves dining at our always kid-friendly Northern Italian restaurant, Mia Francesca Trattoria.
