North Italia has begun this year’s series of community dinners.

Starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 18, the second dinner in this year’s dinners features the cuisine and wine of Tuscany.

Dinner features four courses served family-style with wine pairings at community tables, so you might befriend your neighbor.

Dishes often incorporate the wine used for the wine pairing, such as Chianti-braised short rib.

Seats are $50 per person plus tax and gratuity. For reservations, visit North in person or call (520) 299-1600. The previous dinner sold out, so call soon.
