Welcome to the Hollywood and Westside Los Angeles Italian Language Meetup! Benvenuti!
We are a friendly and enthusiastic group of Italian language speakers who share a love for the Italian language, its culture and its people. We are based in the home of the Silver Screen and meet in Hollywood and Westside Los Angeles. The Hollywood and Westside Los Angeles Italian Language Meetup is one of the most popular Italian Language Meetups in the world and is one of the top Meetups for Expat Italians.
When you become one of us you will be able to speak, read and write in Italian, meet Italian speakers from all over the world and have an amazingly good time!
Please read our Frequently Asked Questions and Group Rules and Guidelines.
How would you describe the members of the group?
Our members have studied with the most talented Italian language instructors, have traveled to every Italian region, and many are native Italians looking to meet others who share their language and passion for their mother country. Some are just starting, and know only a few words of Italian! Most members are in their 20's and 30's, but you will be able to make friends of all ages and backgrounds.
I see some other Italian language Meetups with similar names. Are you affiliated?
We have a sister group, The Pasadena/LA Italian Language Meetup. We often work together and have combined events. We encourage you to checkout other local Italian language Meetup groups as well and find the ones that you enjoy the most.
Are you just starting to learn, taking a course in Italian or practicing with instructional CDs?
Non ti preoccupare! Don't worry! You don't have to speak Italian to have fun with us! Just use what you know and we will help you.
Parli italiano correntemente? Are you a fluent speaker of Italian?
You will have the chance to meet many other fluent speakers and enjoy Italian conversation with people from Italy and from all over the world.
How does it work?
Membership is free. When you receive event announcements by email, please RSVP Yes, No or Maybe.
We get together at least once per month to explore restaurants, parks and museums, of course, using the Italian language for friendly conversation.
Sometimes there is an activity and sometimes there is just informal conversation.
What is the best way to get started?
Add yourself to our Meetup group and visit us at an event this month! You will see the exact location of the event after you join the group.

Ci vediamo! See you!
