Please see important location change information below!

Please join us for our monthly Italian Party!

We will have a friendly evening of Italian conversation and share our passion for Italian food and culture. All levels of Italian speakers are welcome, even those who are only thinking of taking Italian language lessons! Just come prepared to have a good time speaking Italian (and sometimes English) with other Italophiles! Back by popular demand, we'll be meeting "al fresco" to enjoy the warm weather! Please let us know you're planning to attend and remember our new summer party location at:

WEST 70TH STREET PIER CAFE IN RIVERSIDE PARK - take the 1,2,3 trains to W. 72 Street, and walk into Riverside Park and down to the river, then head south to near 70th Street. You can also enter the park at Riverside Blvd (near the new Trump apartment buildings, near W. 68th Street, if that is more convenient for you. The cafe is located on the river adjacent to the pier at W.70th Street.

We 'll be meeting at a very "Italian" outdoor piazza at the West 70th Street Pier Cafe in Riverside Park. Lots of tables and chairs and open space. And there is a restaurant on the edge of the square where you can order drinks and appetizers as you wish. You may also bring your own food and drinks for yourselves and to share with others. This is a public picnic area, so if you bring wine, please be discreet since there may be rules about consuming alcoholic beverages in public, etc.

We plan to be located in the mezzanine area to the North of the cafe. Look for me wearing a red Meetup baseball cap.

We won't fuss with dinner - each on his/her own - just look for the Meetup sign and the group of people talking with their hands!

As usual, we will have a friendly evening of Italian conversation and share our passion for Italian food and culture. All levels of Italian speakers are welcome, even those who are only thinking of taking Italian language lessons! Just come prepared to have a good time speaking Italian (and sometimes English) with other Italophiles! Suggested donation $2.

Please join us and RSVP here, below.

If it rains we'll switch to an indoor location and I'll post that location here on this website the morning of the event.

Grazie!

    I had a great time. This was only my second event. I really enjoyed this one because everyone was speaking Italian and I was able to practice. Even just listening to more advanced conversations was helpful. I am hoping there will be more conversational events such as this in the future :)

    It was my first time attending this Meet-up event, and I thought it was a great idea to be at Pier Cafe! The location is so beautiful and you could get what you want at the Cafe at a reasonable price. Thank you Lisa for organizing to meet at this location!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
