    Hello Claire
    Yes, I think that Italian words are so beautiful. The Italians use ‘squisito’ and ‘delizioso’ to describe food …how marvellous! Spettacolare is favoloso as well 🙂

    I usually use the words “stupendo” and “meraviglioso” to describe something I really love.

    There’s also another Italian word I like very much: spettacolare 🙂
