Ciao! Welcome to ITALIAN CHAT, a place for Italian-language enthusiasts!

We are a friendly and diverse group of over 1,600 Italian speakers and learners from the NYC area, and we meet two or more times a month at a local venue to share our passion for the Italian language, culture and lifestyle with like-minded people.

ITALIAN CHAT is organized by Legaitaliana / Italian Connection, an international association on Italian language and culture. Our non-profit organization oversees Italian-language groups in 12 cities around the world, totalling over 5,000 members. Learn more at

Our events are designed for people who want to practice or improve their Italian-language skills over a drink or a bite to eat in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and make new amici while doing so. The idea is simply to speak Italian and meet others who enjoy speaking it too!

Membership is FREE, and all ages and levels of proficiency are welcome!
