Win $100 Gift Certificate to Mia Francesca in North Hills

I have a surprise for my local followers today. I am giving away a $100 Gift Certificate to Mia Francesca Trattoria in North Hills.

I tried the Northern Italian restaurant for the first time a few weekends ago, and it was good. Of course, it is good, or else I wouldn't be giving away this great gift certificate.  I don't recommend a restaurant to anyone unless I would go back myself.  And truthfully, I can't wait to go back. I may go during brunch on the weekend for the Bloody Mary bar. 

Mia Francesca's started in the Chicago area.  The Raleigh location at North Hills is the first on the East Coast. Yes, folks, it is a chain, but it doesn't feel like a chain restaurant because the chef shops in his local farmer's market for the freshest ingredients.  It truly is a farm-to-table restaurant, and most of its ingredients come from North Carolina local farms, and our coastal regions.

I'm going to rave about the Insalata.  Loved it!  I will order it again.  I cleaned my plate. 

Insalata Caprese

North Hills in Raleigh is a great evening destination, and with a trendy, urban vibe, Mia Francesca is great for a date night, or a night out with the entire family.  I think the reasonable price point, and the kid's menu with complimentary gelato makes it family-friendly in my book.  We dined with another couple, and my two kids. We had salads, entrees, alcoholic drinks, desserts, and I even had a cappuccino. The total bill was $146.  That's pretty darn good for that many people. 

Great night at Mia Francesca's in Raleigh's North Hills. 

The $100 gift certificate I'm giving away should cover a great night out for you. 

Enjoy!  Next time I go, I'm getting this Napoletana pizza.
