Given the lenght of the line, though, it's pretty obvious you're supposed to write it in numbers and not spelled out.

I wasted about a minute trying to figure out how I was spelling "margherita" wrong in margherita pizza, so for future pizza connoisseurs, might I ask that you accept its full name? It's such a specific-looking type of pizza that it didn't even occur to me you were just looking for plain ol' "pizza". I mean, you do accept "shells" *and* pasta for the next oneā€¦ :-) Anyway, thank you for the attractive & tasty quiz!!

Tomato sauce on bad bread is the name of pizza in Italy. I'd call someone stubborn for eating it, not a connoisseur.

given how little the world famous and universally popular variety of pizza resembles that stuff, just "pizza" seems like a wrong answer.

If you wanna be correct, Vespa is the model, while Piaggio in the scooter brand: you would never think Testarossa as an automobile brand, while you would think at Ferrari

Now Vespa is also a brand, but I know that the model in the photo is a Piaggio Vespa. I might correct that

Missed Espresso... I always forget that abroad people say "espresso" and not just "coffee"!

Espresso is a way of making coffee and the name for the resulting product. But it's not the only coffee there is. Drinking a regular size cup of Espresso is not like drinking one of black coffee. Really wouldn't recommend that.

But Carry, this is a quiz about Italy, and over there people generally call it coffee not espresso; I believe that is the point arres82 was making. But since we're on the topic of drip coffee and espresso, have you tried a 'Shot in the Dark'? It's a shot of espresso in a cup of drip coffee. So much yum! Three shots is called a Dead Eye -- but that one's not my speed, no pun intended.

Just make the coffee stronger to begin with instead of 2 water ratios and mixing them.

Was really hoping it would accept 'Topolino' for the Fiat. I know it's not the actual model name but a nickname.

"Topolino" was the nickname for another Fiat 500 built in the 1930s. This one was a very different car

The photo for the answer 'espresso' isn't really apt. The machine / set-up pictured is used to make all sorts of coffees, not just espressos. If you wish to lead us to the answer 'espresso' might I suggest a photo of a cup of espresso. Alternatively, you could change the answer to 'coffee machine' (but that's boring :-) ).
