How Do You Say I Love You in Italian? ~ (Audio)

Italian

I love you in ItalianITALIANS, they know a thing or two about love. Italy is the birthplace of legendary lover Casanova, the setting for literature’s tragic tale of unrequited love, Romeo and Juliet, and the home of some of the world’s most romantic landscapes. Some go as far to say that Italian is the language of love. So if you wanted to learn an Italian phrase or two, what better place to begin than with how do you say I love you in Italian?

One of the best Italian language software out there – Capisce?

To say those three little words, I love you, in Italian, you need learn just two little words: Ti amo.

Pronounced tee ah-moh, ti stands for you and amo is the first person conjugation of the verb amare. This is the infinitive form and literally means to love. It is very similar to how one says I love you in Spanish in structure, sound and meaning. In Italian, as in Spanish, you do not need to use the word for I, but it is not wrong to say it, either. The Italian phrase for I love you then becomes Io ti amo. Io is pronounced ee-oh.

To tell a family member or dear friend that you love them, say Ti voglio bene. Voglio (pronounced voh-lyoh) is the first person of the Italian verb volere, which means to want. (Again, very similar to the other way of saying I love you in Spanish.) Bene (pronounced beh-neh) means good. You can crank up the feeling by adding the word tanto (tahn-toh) – Ti voglio tanto bene. I love you very much.But this expression of affection is reserved for intimate, romantic love only, and should not be used lightly (which is true of the sentiment in any language, really!) – or with friends or family.

Now that’s amore!
