Antipasti: Finding the Best Starter Appetizers in the Triangle

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Fresh from the farms of North Carolina and the depths of the Atlantic OceanApps, the house-made appetizers at Mia Francesca Trattoria take our guests on a culinary trip to Northern Italy right in the heart of Midtown Raleigh. From tender calamari to mussels with just the right amount of spicy marinara or garlic white wine sauce, our ample- portioned appetizers are perfect as antipasti or as a wonderful meal in themselves.

Nothing beats a great glass of wine and scrumptious bites of tasty bruschetta. Our traditional Tuscany- influence bruschetta features locally grown, marinated tomatoes and mozzarella on crisp garlic toast. For something a little different, we also offer bruschetta with mashed peas, lemon ricotta, pea shoots, and crispy prosciutto. Our Prosciutto con Asparagi tops that prosciutto with grilled asparagus, baby artichokes, and arugula, a tasty treat of green vegetables enhanced with just the right amount of lemon and olive oil.

Remember, the Mia Francesca drink specials make our antipasti selections even more appetizing. Every Monday afternoon and evening we offer 50% off all wines from 11:30am to 11:00pm. By the glass or by the bottle, choose a classic chianti from the Tuscany region of Northern Italy or an adventurous Argentinian malbec to complement our mouthwatering Warm Calabrian Olives. And on Thursdays, our featured special is 50% off select cocktails from 5:00pm to 11:00pm.

For our guests who want to dine on the lighter side, Mia Francesca Trattoria provides a full menu of insalate. Our fresh and crisp salads feature ingredients locally grown from the local Farmer’s Market. Try our Fagiolini Insalata with tomatoes, crisp string beans, and onions. As the weather warms, we recommend Insalata ala Francesca, with hearts of romaine, endive, radicchio, blue cheese, and in-season summer vegetables, enjoyed in the open air of our expansive al fresco patio.

Let Mia Francesca Trattoria in Midtown Raleigh take everyone on an epicurean adventure to the tastes of Northern Italy, Tuscany, and Florence; while savoring the visit to our rustic and authentic restaurant in North Hills, Midtown Raleigh. Located close to everywhere in the Triangle at exit 8 and the Beltline (440), we invite all to stop in for a drink and an appetizer. Stay for dinner and check out our dessert menu as well.

Come join us for our Mother’s Day Brunch Raleigh, NC.
