Il Cenacolo is an organization that preserves, enhances and encourages all aspects of Italian arts, language and culture and recognizes the unique contribution of Italian heritage that is intertwined in the history and life of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Founded in 1928, Il Cenacolo is an Italian cultural club providing opportunities for camaraderie and service to its 150 members.

Luncheon meetings are held weekly at the San Francisco Italian Athletic Club in North beach, and feature speakers on topics of interest, such as music, arts, San Francisco history, architecture, food, and all things Italian. Great food and unlimited wine make the meetings quite festive.

Il Cenacolo provides financial support to various opera and Italian language/history venues in the Bay Area.
