Nothing says summer in the Triangle like cool, creamy ice cream, and nothing says authentic ice cream like real Italian gelato. Now that the summer heat has arrived full steam across the central North Carolina region, it is time to take a break, relax, and enjoy a delicious Tuscany Italian meal followed by an array of cool tasty treats at Mia Francesca Trattoria. We feature the best and most authentic Northern Italian desserts and gelati in Raleigh!
We all know gelato is cool and refreshing, and it is important to note that it takes just the right amount of time to eat; not too fast and not too slow. It truly is the perfect finish to the perfect meal on a hot summer night. Our gelato is made in the simple traditions of Italy, with the freshest local ingredients. At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we continue in the Northern Italian classic tradition of making homemade gelato using real milk, cream, and sugar that bring out the flavors that delight our guests.
Mia Francesca offers six wonderfully delicious flavors:
- White chocolate
- Dark chocolate
- Salted caramel
Gelato is one of the most popular Italian desserts, originating in the mountains of Sicily and made popular in Northern Italy in the early 20th century.
At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we include fresh gelato in our other popular dessert selections, including:
- Profiteroles – Delicate cream puffs toasted filled with pistachio gelato and served with chocolate sauce
- Affogato – Toasted almond gelato, Espresso, and chocolate chip vanilla biscotti
If our guests are looking for a lighter, fruitier cold treat? Try one of our refreshing sorbetti. Made with fresh fruit, sorbet is a flavorful water ice. Often called Italian Ice, sorbetti is the perfect end to the perfect hot summer evening.
