DULUTH, Minn. -

It’s been nearly one month now since devastation shook the country of Italy, killing hundreds of people and ripping apart the beautiful Italian landscape.

While buildings begin to resurface, one local eatery is doing all it can to help out, from the Northland.

Va Bene Caffe is kicking off a nearly two-month long fundraiser beginning Monday, September 12.

Two dollars from every Amatriciana pasta dish will be donated to the Italian Red Cross.

The mouthwatering red sauce dish originated in Amatrice, Italy, which is where much of the devastation occurred.

Va Bene was contacted via Facebook about the fundraiser, from a woman living in Italy by the name of Carola Signorelli. Signorelli has visited Va Bene for dining occasions before, and has family in Duluth.

Va Bene Owner Jim Berarducci said, "I think as a local eatery it's nice for people to kind of be able to come to a place like this and then were giving things back to either places we have been or people to reach out that are really in need.”

You can help support Va Bene’s efforts until October 31.

The authentic dish includes pancetta, garlic, onions, and thyme all simmered in a red tomato sauce. Price for the dish runs $15 dollars, again with two dollars from each dish being donated to the Italian Red Cross.
