Looking for a Charming Valentine’s Day Dinner in Raleigh? We have a Beautiful Idea!

Monday, February 9th, 2015

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photo-heart-valentine-s-day-image22597695The second month of the New Year is always the month of love in the Triangle, and everyone is invited for a romantic dinner for two. Saturday February 14th is coming up fast and it will soon be Valentine’s Day! It is finally on a Saturday night, which makes it extra special. Remember the finest foods of love are always Italian!

Mia Francesca Trattoria, everyone’s Valentine’s Day headquarters, is the Tuscany Italian Trattoria located in North Hills in Midtown Raleigh. This is the time we offer our much-loved Valentine’s Day Menu for every sweetheart to enjoy! Our rustic dining experience makes for love at first bite every time. Guests truly adore our Executive Chef’s heartfelt devotion to our classic Northern Italian cuisine. This is the time of year to fall in love, or fall in love over and over again and our kitchen staff prepares the finest foods of love Italian Style and we do it with pure enjoyment. The experience makes the day at Mia Francesca.

Whether on a first date this love struck holiday, or an annual dinner out with that very special someone, know we tantalize the taste buds to heart’s desire. With the help of the epicurean delights of Northern Italy, Cupid is aiming his bow and arrow in the name of both relationship and love. In honor of Saint Valentine, we offer sexy courses for two and the most decadent of desserts anyone could imagine. After all, edible gifts of love create the best memories.

On February 14th, Mia Francesca offers four luscious courses, fine wines, and wonderful drinks for couple’s to choose from in celebration of love. Woo your darling with a lovely first course; Risotto ai Funghi, our Italian rice with wild mushrooms, herbs, garlic and mozzarella, or our Pizza Salcisse with sausage, tomatoes, and mozzarella.

While sharing smiles and fondness for fine food; enjoy Mia Francesca’s second course, Insalata alla Francesca (romaine, radicchio, endive, seasonal vegetables, balsamic, and blue cheese), or Insalata Caprese (tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and olive oil).

Cherish this time of mutual adoration for one another as couples savor one of Mia Francesca Trattoria’s third course selections:

  • Our Rigatoni alla Boscaiola presents rigatoni pasta sautéed with tomato veal sauce, wild mushrooms, garlic, and herbs.
  • Our Pollo alla Romano is our tender and juicy roasted chicken breast with garlic, shallots, rosemary, lemon, olive oil, and roasted potatoes.
  • Our Salmon ai Funghi is pan-roasted and cooked with wild mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and garlic.

Become even more smitten with love while tasting our fourth course “sweets for the sweets” finale. We offer two decadent Italian desserts, our endearing Tiramisu and our passionate Profiteroles. All anyone has to do is supply the intangibles tableside to create perfection: a big box of imported chocolates, a “love you forever”card with a handwritten love poem inside, or a bountiful bouquet of Italian red roses. They all will make the romantic experience even better! Celebrate Love Italian Style this Valentine’s Day at Mia Francesca Trattoria and make precious memories that will last a lifetime.

On Valentine’s Day, there is always magic in the air. An intimate dinner for two can lead to an enjoyable weekend, where work and friendships can turn into courtships and marriage proposals to wedding engagements.

Call us today and make your holiday extra special. Remember that fine food and wine bring warmth and happiness to every occasion; why not create the mood with a Valentine’s Day to remember. After all, the foods of Italy are the food of love! Join us this Saturday! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Or as we say in Italian, Buon San Valentino! Here is our full menu to fall in love with as we head to the big day!

At Mia Francesca in Raleigh, we take great pride in having a true farm-to-table experience, serving only the freshest of ingredients. If you have never visited our Tuscany-influenced Trattoria, this is the perfect week. For the first course, diners can begin with a crisp Caesar salad or our Zuppa Minestrone soup featuring fresh winter vegetables or, at dinnertime; our Bruschette alla Romano with garlic toast, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and olive oil. All three are favorites here in Midtown Raleigh at North Hills.

While mingling with fellow guests at white linen tables, our second course will arrive in all of its tasty glory. Our professional kitchen staff, led by Executive and Iron Chef Zack VanGaasbeek, prepares everything with perfection in mind.

Mia Francesca offers five mouth-watering main course options for Triangle Restaurant Week (TRW):

  • Spaghetti Bolognese: beef, pork, and veal meatballs along with fresh herbs, tomato basil sauce, and Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Panino alla Parmigiano: breaded chicken breast topped with tomato basil sauce and mozzarella served on ciabatta (lunch)

Finally, finish your culinary experience with a divine dessert. Mia Francesca offers the Italian classic Tiramisu with ladyfingers soaked in espresso and rum with mascarpone cheese and cocoa. Alternatively, at dinner, guests can have our vanilla-mascarpone Cheesecake with graham cracker crumble topped with raspberry sauce and vanilla anglaise. A sweet ending to a pleasurable dining experience!
