* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' also throws in a lot of Italian, [[JustifiedTrope which isn't surprising]] since it's set in Italy.

* Sometimes invoked in ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway''. The ep with special guest RobinWilliams had one game with Robin and Ryan as pizza chefs -- the first thing they did was swear at each other in vaguely Italian gibberish.

* In their [[RiffTrax riff]] of ''[[{{Film/Titanic 1997}} Titanic]]'', the guys make fun of Fabrizio's accent at every opportunity. Any scene he's in is replaced with cries of ''Pasta, mafia, minestrone!'', ''Mafia rigatoni?!'', ''Francesco Rinaldi!'', etc.

**''Trattoria'' is actually a cheaper, less fancy restaurant, usually offering fewer, less complicated dishes, possibly at a fixed price.

Italy has many different accents, which can vary wildly between regions. The ones that are most often heard in the media are those typical of Southern Italy, especially Naples or Sicily (the latter is commonly associated with the Mafia). There are also many regional dialects, some of which are different languages from Italian itself.

There are also many regional dialects, some of which are different languages from Italian itself. As you might expect (given the parellel example of British versus American English ) spoken Italian in North America has diverged from the European version to the point where linguists consider it a seperate dialect of its own. See ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'' below for examples.

Added DiffLines:
* Largely averted in ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond''. where although the protaganists are a lively Italian-American family, any use of Italian is kept to the (American-Italian) names of foodstuffs [[note]]Quite often, European Italian has different names for the delicious and plentiful food prepared by Marie Barone. This can confuse European viewers who know the delicacies by other names[[/note]]. Conversational Italian is used only in episodes where the plot demands it: ''Mia Famiglia'', where the Barones welcome a visiting relative from Italy and speak it freely at the dinner table, and in the two-parter where the whole family goes to Italy on holiday.[[note]]Even here, differences are apparent: Italian as spoken in North America pronounces the family name as "Bah-Rohn". Italian as spolen in Italy sounds the final "e" - "Bah-ro-NEH"[[/note]]
