What Makes Northern Italian Cuisine So Popular in the Triangle?

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photo-coliseum-italian-flag-image7768095The aromas, the ambiance, and the bold, fresh flavors of excellent Italian fare bring people together for the great food and the good times. Here in the Triangle, the perfect place is always nearby, just minutes from everywhere. It’s time to step into Northern Italy and the welcoming doors of Mia Francesca.

Mia Francesca Trattoria’s Tuscany Italian cuisine represents every traditional family value found in the Mother Country of Italy. It is an historic fact that Italian cooking over the centuries has reflected the true spirit of Italian life and culture; the food is both unique and very special. At Mia Francesca, we focus on recipes that remind us of the famous Tuscany Region of Italy; from the small villages in the foothills where our farm to table menu gets its inspiration, to the Italian people themselves; who have helped us create the culinary masterpieces offered by our professional chefs each and every day.

Our Italian food is unpretentious, yet delicious with many or our presentations having only four to eight ingredients. Italian cooking can taste delightful without being complicated or over done with spices and sauces. Our menu has an epicurean elegance based on simplicity, vibrant subtleties, and variety. Our expansive menu always features new dishes as well, often on a daily basis.

In general, Italy is a diverse country boasting an equally diverse cuisine. Italian food is noted for its regional diversity, abundance of taste, and it is probably the most popular in the world, with a multitude of influences abroad. Here in the Triangle at Mia Francesca, Italian cuisine can be enjoyed by everyone, not just people of Italian heritage. Simplistic variety makes the difference.

Our talented kitchen staff, led by our Executive Chef Zach prepares everything with the focus on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation. Italian cooking at Mia Francesca places the highest priority on the use of fresh, seasonal produce which distinguishes the true cuisine of Italy.

Here are just five of our most popular Italian dishes at Mia Francesca Trattoria:

  • Bruschetta alla Romana: garlic toast, marinated tomatoes, mozzarella, and olive oil
  • Caesar Salad: hearts of Romaine, garlic, croutons, shaved Parmigiano, and roasted bell peppers
  • Naplotena Pizza: arugula, cherry tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, provolone, and shaved parmesan
  • Spaghetti alla Bolognese: beef, veal, and pork meatballs, fresh herbs, tomato basil sauce, Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Tiramisu: espresso and Kahlua soaked lady fingers with lightly sweetened marscapone cream and cocoa powder

Our Northern Italian cuisine includes some of the most wonderful meals in the Triangle. While Italian cooking may have long been considered mainstream here in the United States, not all local restaurants serve true Italian cuisine. Mia Francesca Trattoria is proud to stay true to our Italian roots. It is what we are each and every day. A great value and a great experience make our rustic Northern Italian restaurant a great place to enjoy time and again.

We always focus on our roots. What was perfected in Italy is brought to the Triangle for each and every guest! Take the moment and walk through our front doors into Northern Italy.
