For the people who love food, live in the Triangle and surrounding regions, and are feeling nostalgic for the classic Italian cuisine we have all seen on television and in Hollywood movies; they should look no further than Mia Francesca Trattoria in Midtown Raleigh. We serve our meals and appetizers as “come hungry” portions delivered tableside by smiling faces with our unique Northern Italian Tuscany twist! The only thing missing is Mom, and she is welcome as well!
Our classic, tried and true Italian starters include our well received Calamari Fritti; fried calamari served with a spicy marinara sauce. Everyone has to try our Bruschetta alla Romana, which features marinated tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and olive oil melted over crisp homemade garlic toast. Our Meat and Cheese Board is another wonderful favorite we have all seen at the dinner table in an array of old movies, and our Executive Chef Zack selects just the right artisan cheese and charcuterie along with the plump olives, fruit jam, and ciabatta crostini.
For those in the mood for a farm fresh salad, everyone enjoys our definitive Caesar Salad with its fresh hearts of romaine lettuce, garlic, croutons, shaved Parmigiano, and roasted bell peppers. After appetizers and salad, get ready for one of our classically pleasing dinner entrees.
Our authentic Italian pizza looks and tastes so much better that the ones on T.V. We offer a half dozen types of pizzas, including our Napoletana with arugula, cherry tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, provolone, and shaved Parmesan.
We also offer our guests the option of choosing their own pizza toppings, which include these fresh vegetables:
- Roasted Peppers
Our meats and cheeses make the pizza pie classically delicious:
- Goat cheese
At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we are all about perfecting the classics. In addition to our Italian pizza, another classic Italian dish is probably the most recognizable of all! Our Spaghetti and Meatballs in a delicious tomato basil sauce is one to remember.
Our Pollo al Parmesan has breaded chicken breasts, tomato basil sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, and Linguini agil e olio. And the newest gluten-free classic Italian choice is our Penne Aglio Olio with Quinoa gluten-free penne sautéed with extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, diced tomatoes, and sautéed spinach.
In the heart of the Triangle at North Hills, we are your rustic Italian restaurant of choice. Our classic Italian cuisine is divine. We should make a movie!
