What we're about

Our purpose is to perpetuate Italian Culture and the Italian Language with a variety of activities. We will share our passion for all things Italian with meetings that include food and wine and intelligent conversation, in both Italian and English.

Members of this group will be enthusiastic and passionate. Meetings will be fun and educational. If you speak Italian the meetings will afford you an opportunity to communicate with other Italian speakers. If you do not speak Italian, our meetings will afford you the opportunity to learn with lessons that will be included at each meeting.

Friday Night Dinner at Pizzeataly Food Truck

Needs a location

Ciao everybody,

Who is in the mood for some great Italian pizza this Friday evening?

We have been here a few times and the pizza was really good and I also had the tiramisu. And the owner is from Southern Italy, so you are getting some authentic Italian pizza! And I've been told that their calzones are also out of this world.

They have a couple of picnic tables for outdoor dining and they are shaded with umbrellas, perfect for social distancing.

Please Note: THEY ARE AT A NEW LOCATION.

I hope to see you Friday....grazie mille!

Needs a location

Ciao everybody,

The Italian Club of Ybor City is hosting a "Wine Down" Wednesday night happy hour from 5 to 8 PM on October 12th. It will be in the Cantina downstairs. This is a beautiful building with a lot of history and the Cantina is a nice place to meet with a nice bar.

The event is FREE and open to members and the general public.
There is a cash-bar with 2-for-1 Italian wine, music, and they are offering a buffet from Catering by the Family for $15.

They usually do a tour of the building and talk about the rich history of the club and Ybor City.

For parking there is a garage on 15th Street and a metered lot behind Carmine's Restaurant on 7th Avenue and 18th Street along with other options.

Italian Mass - St. Petersburg Fl. at St. Jude's Cathedral

Needs a location

Ciao everybody,

I just found out that there will be an Italian mass on Sunday the 23rd at St. Jude's Cathedral.

Father Tony Fortunato will be doing the service and he is very entertaining to say the least.

The mass will be 95% in Italian. So if you have taken any of my classes, or just want to brush up on your Italian, this will be a good way to do it! They have a pamphlet that they hand out so you can follow along.

And you'll be going to church at the same time.

There are not many places in the country where you can attend an Italian mass service, so we are lucky that we have this opportunity.

Hope you can make it!
