The Best Brunch Menu in the Triangle

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Brunch-Salads-Raleigh-NCDuring this lovely late summer season, Mia Francesca Trattoria welcomes our guests to enjoy our bountiful Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our popular brunch menu brings people from all over to enjoy this wonderful experience. We also feature fine farm to table daily selections for lunch and dinner as well.

Our delicious Frittata Saltimbocca is quite a mouthful to say, yet totally worth requesting every time for our Brunch. This Italian dish at Mia Francesca Trattoria is incredibly delightful. Frittata in Italian roughly translates to “egg-cake” and complementing the baked frittata style eggs are farm fresh vine ripe tomatoes, fontina, and arugula. Saltimbocca translates from Italian to English in a fun way as “jumps in the mouth” (meaning your taste buds awaken to its amazing flavors) and it includes our prosciutto and fresh sage. A creamy basil hollandaise covers this delightful meal.

Our quenching brunch drinks include seasonal libations, fresh juices, and milk. With any of our tasty brunch selections, we offer a variety of savory side dishes:

  • Ciabatta Toast
  • Bacon (cooked how you like it)
  • Italian Sausage
  • Two Eggs (Any Style)
  • Fresh Fruit
  • House Fried Potatoes
  • Cheesy Polenta
  • Prosciutto di Parma
  • Fluffy Pancakes

Our Brunch menu extends beyond traditional breakfast to include homemade salads, pizza, pasta, and Panini. Crisp, fresh salads like our wonderful Caesar Salad or our Piselli Insalata which shows off our farm-fresh pea pods, tomatoes, and cucumbers are a great part of brunch. Many of our guests enjoy our authentic Italian Salsiccia Pizza with fennel sausage, sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, and mozzarella. Savor our classic Spaghetti and Meatballs in an authentic Italian tomato basil sauce; it is a true favorite. Finally, try our delicious Pollo Parmesan Panini with breaded chicken breast, tomato basil sauce, and shredded mozzarella on toasted ciabatta bread along with fries. With so much to choose from, including $ 3 Mimosa/ Bellini and our mouthwatering Calamari, we make the weekend an epicurean delight for everyone who visits and enjoys.

All of our guests agree that Mia Francesca’s is the place to be! Join us here in North Hills soon. We are just off the Raleigh Beltline at exit 8B, Six Forks North (North Hills); 20 minutes from anywhere here in the Triangle. As we get closer to fall, it soon will be the best time of year to see the changing colors across the Triangle and here in Raleigh. Our rustic Tuscan-Italian restaurant is centrally located with shops, boutiques, and a movie theater at the expansive North Hills in Midtown Raleigh.

Our Northern Italian Gluten-Free Menu Is Overflowing with Natural Flavor

Monday, August 25th, 2014

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Mia Francesca Trattoria of North Hills in Midtown Raleigh serves fantastic farm and sea fresh food to every single one of our guests. At the same time we know that some of our guests might be sensitive or allergic to gluten. Gluten is the protein found in the grains wheat, rye, barley, and triticale (a hybrid of wheat and rye). We can assure all of our guests that we now offer a completely gluten-free menu for their needs. Our executive chef team prepares an array of gluten-free authentic Tuscany-Italian cuisine that is always full of aroma and wonderful flavor.

For many people in the Triangle who embrace a gluten-free diet, Mia Francesca offers a wide variety of delightful choices for those seeking a true gluten-free meal.

Here is a sampling of the appetizers from our delicious gluten-free menu:

  • Spinaci aglio e olio: sautéed baby spinach, fresh garlic, olive oil, and lemon
  • Carpaccio: thinly sliced sirloin with capers, tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, lemon, olive oil, arugula, endive, radicchio, and Parmigiano

Since most fresh fruits and vegetables are naturally gluten free, we offer a nice variety of farm fresh salads including:

  • Piselli Insalata: pea pods, tomato, cucumber
  • Insalata ala Francesca: hearts of romaine, endive, radicchio, blue cheese, and summer vegetables

All of our gluten-free pasta dishes contain quinoa, a healthy grain that is high in protein, high in fiber, and free of gluten.

Our quinoa gluten-free penne pasta entrees include:

  • Penne alla Bolognese: beef, veal, pork, fresh herbs, tomato basil sauce and Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Penne alle Verdure: sautéed with wild mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, broccoli, escarole, garlic, olive oil, and pine nuts

It is important to note that our guests can always finish dinner with the flavor-rich, gluten-free dining experience of our Crème Alle Vaniglia, vanilla crème brulee served with fresh seasonal berries; or try our Frutta in Vaso dessert, seasonal fruit topped with whipped cream and raspberry sauce. Mia Francesca Trattoria makes it easy for our guests to select the right meals from our flavorful gluten-free menu!
