Romantic Italian phrases to charm your loved one


Last Updated on November 29, 2023 by Laura Teso

Saint Valentine’s day is approaching, so I think you may want to learn some romantic Italian phrases. I hope this will help you to make a good impression on your partner.

Romantic Italian phrases

First of all, Saint Valentine is… San Valentino [sahn vah-lehn-TEE-noh]. We do not use the expression “Will you be my Valentine?”. If you want to ask someone to be your boyfriend/girlfriend, you have to say

To a woman: Vuoi essere la mia ragazza? [vwoi EHS-seh-reh lah MEE-ah rah-GAHT-tsah](Will you be my girlfriend?). To a man: Vuoi essere il mio ragazzo? [vwoi EHS-seh-reh eel MEE-oh rah-GAHT-tsoh](Will you be my boyfriend?). But it’s something for teenagers.

If you simply want to ask soemone out, you can say:

  • Vuoi uscire con me? [vwoi ooh-SHEE-reh kohn meh](Will you go out with me?)
