Hi, I live in Italy. Well, mom is mamma and dad is papà. Although, I've heard some Italians call their parents ma and pa or mammina and papi (papino) which is basically mommy and daddy, but usually little kids say this. In Tuscany, dad is babbo. Aunts is zie and uncles is zii, if you are talking about both together you just say zii. Grandparents is nonni (nonna is grandma and nonno is grandpa). Some common names are Antonio, Francesco, Giovanni, Roberto, Giovanna, Maria, Sofia, Elisa, etc. Some common surnames are Rossi, Bianchi, Esposito, Manfredini, ecc. Some dishes could be lasagna or oven-baked pasta (pasta al forno), minestrone (vegetable soup usually served with small pasta or rice), pollo al forno con patate (oven-baked chicken with roasted potatoes), spaghetti col pomodoro (spaghetti with tomato sauce), etc. The type of food and the name depends on what region they are from.
