“Brunch a delight”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Food, service and ambiance were all excellent. Our daughter could not stop raving about the pancakes. Our lentil special was delicious and different. We highly recommend and will return.

“Delicious Pasta Dishes!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Went to Mia Francesca in Raleigh, North Hills Mall, for the first time. I liked the interior, warm and friendly. There is outdoor seating, but it had just rained, could not be seated there, but would like to next time. Requested to be seated upstairs and loved the atmosphere from up there - looking down on the restaurant. Nice, large bar area. Had the Francesca salad - split with friend because the portion was very large. The salad was filled with several types of green lettuce and radichio and filled with vegetables, i.e., green beans, pea pods, carrots, onion. Very delicious, I would ordre this again. For dinner, each one of us ordered a different pasta dish, as the pasta is homemade and it was a great way to see each one and share. My dish was a special menu item - Farfalle pasta in a tomato cream sauce with mushrooms, peas and pancetta - very good. Also tried their ravioli filled with mushrooms and brandy cream sauce - also very good. Did not have room for dessert, but I am sure they were good. The wine list was also very good. I will return soon, I liked everything about the restaurant, pacing, service - all good.

Liked the look and feel of the restaurant. Food was better than average Italian fare.Large portions and kids menu was adequate. Service was excellent. Waitstaff and manager very professional and helpful, which is a plus traveling with kids under 6years of age!

“Go Here!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

My wife and I could eat here everyday. The Sunday brunch is a must! Atmosphere is so cool and you might see a sports star as most pro teams stay in the ajoining hotel and dine here. Rustic interior with super modern feel. A jewel in North Hills that you can't pass up.
