Italian Wine and Pasta Dinners in Dorchester

Tavolo in Dorchester
We're not the only ones with Italy on the brain. Two popular Dorchester restaurants are planning “trips” to Piedmont for their upcoming special dinners. Chris Coombs, chef-owner of the American dbar, is planning a four-course meal that will honor the Northern Italian region with wines to go with on Wednesday, February 6 (7 PM; $55 per person, excluding tax and gratuity; 617-265-4490). Also on Wednesday, February 6, Tavolo, the casual Italian in Dorchester’s Peabody Square, will be preparing a three-course regional pasta tour (5-10 PM; $25 per person). The following Wednesday, February 13, enjoy a three-course “tour” of Tuscany at Tavolo - just in case you can't get to Piedmont ($25; 617-822-1918).
