Updated on January 18, 2013

Italian Love Phrases

There is no shortage of Italian love phrases within the Italian language, which is not to surprising as Italians love to talk and express their love and desires as often as possible. They are known for their wooing and romantic techniques, American women are often warned of the ploys of the flirtatious Italian men.

The Italian language belongs to the romance family, a beautiful language and most closely related to it’s original roots of Latin. There is something romantic and fun to speaking to your love in another language, even if you are not fluent in it. Here are 25 Italian love phrases you can use to whisper in your lovers ear.

1. Ti amo - I love you. This is the version only used for a husband/wife, fiancée.

2. Ti voglio bene - I love you. This is the version used for friends, family, boyfriend and girlfriends. Used more commonly on a day to day basis to your love.

      Thank you WiccanSage. I agree. Before I could speak it I used to love listening to my dad talk in Italian, it was a big part of why I made it a goal to learn it.

      How romantic! It seems even more romantic when spoken in a language that I don't understand! Though I love Italian, and will learn it someday, I can always find more reasons to learn it now, like being able to say these and sound awesome :)
