I am Italian from Milan and I have been in Portlan OR since 2005. I am always looking for new friends and I feel very confortable with people who love my country.

I know many people had a good time in Italy and many people also speak Italian, but it is hard to find a place to practice the language. So if you speak Italian, live on the West side and would like to find a place practice and find new friends, please join me.

We will also have night of Italian culture where you don't need to be able to speak Italian such as wine dinners, Italian wine tasting, cooking classes, shows etc.

I love good restaurants and good dinners, and sometimes I will invite the group to join me mainly when I have an Italian wine maker in town. This maybe fun for some of us and not for others. Please just chose the events you are confortable with.

We will have an Italian good time with some good conversation, wine and food. I look forward to meet you.

A presto,

Manuela Ravanelli

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
