Knowing a bit of Italian surprisingly comes in handy in so many situations. You could be upping your game before a trip to Italy, or just looking for a secret weapon to bust out whenever the timing is right.

Regardless, keep these beauties in your back pocket and be prepared to beat ‘em away with a stick when you unleash your Italian charm on the masses.
