Proverbs, sayings, and idiomatic expressions are a rich way to learn new words and gain insight into the colloquial side of a language. Italian, like other languages, has a wealth of these enlightening expressions — some wise and others witty. Because they are usually brief, they can be almost like a mini lesson in themselves. Take me up on this, and treat yourself to a sense of accomplishment! Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player version 9 or above is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here.

Has a lot of local names. Interesting story about scallops, and dubious fishing practices, here. According to Davidson, capone coccio is also used in Lazio for another member of the gurnard family: the piper Trgila lyra. You know, just to add to the confusion. Also called cappone. Also muggine.golfsirlankpiroconf.ga
Even the UK Marine Conservation society rates it as 4 with 5 the worst. We encountered this word on a menu in a restaurant at Lake Bracciano, north of Rome, so it may also refer to other small lake fish. Cozze plural is apparently the Lazio name. The more standard Italian name is mitilo,though of course there are numerous regional names including variations likes cozzica, cozzeca, cozzela, or peocio, peocchia and similar in northeast , etc.
D dentice — generic name for the Dentex, but most commonly used to refer to the common dentex Dentex dentex.

Davidson says the full Campania name is rancio-fellone, while the standard Italian name is favallo. G gallinella — see capone gallinella.
Can refer to several species, including the three below. Too many different regional names to mention them all, but some are: granso Veneto , rancio Campania , vranzi Sicilia. L lanterna — see pesce prete Uranoscopus scaber. Also known as macarello Lazio , a name it shares with Atlantic mackerel. I bought some fish from our pescivondolo one day and, when gutting it, he told me how lucky I was to get the milt.
Presumably fished too young. Specifically Dosinia exoleta and similar. However, in Russia and in southern Europe, blue whiting are sometimes sold as food fish. Just look at Italian Wikipedia and it says this generic word used to refer to 15 different species. See cozza. Hence potential confusion with musdea. Some of its regional names are mostella, mustella gianca, mustia — which sound like motella and some of its regional names.
The two species are in the same order Gadiformes and family Gadidae ; the true cod family but not the same genus. My guess is that they live in similar rocky environments, so were, in days of yore, caught together and discussed together by twinkly eyed, rough-handed fishermen. N nasello — hake Merluccius merluccius. See bianchetti. O occhialone — see rovello. Then I saw them on the market pic below. Although the Latin-derived Italian word is not unlike the English word, it also sounds like ostrich.

In Italian an ostrich is the entirely dissimilar struzzu. P paganello — see ghiozzo paganello. Despite the Latin name, not to be confused with sardines. It literally means fishing boat, trawler. He says this can refer to the Mustelus asterias and Mustelus mustelus. The former is called the Starry smooth-hound on Wikipedia, the latter the Common smooth-hound. I often see fillets of palombo on the market, though have never tried it. Not a fish, but a word commonly used to describe oceanic species that shoal near the surface, such as mackerel.
But also used to refer specifically to pesce serra Pomatomus saltatrix. See persico reale, below. This is the Atlantic stargazer Uranoscopus scaber. This is the fish that started me on this mission. Had this in a restaurant in Sorrento. So really, the Med fisheries particularly need to pull their fingers out. Also known as rovello see below. Presumably not freshly caught. Its Latin name is great: Octopus macropus. Also polipo, piovra, folpo, tolbo, tulbo, fulbo, fulpo, vurpe, pruppu…. R razza — ray. Our first year in Italy, we asked the pescivondolo for something for Christmas Eve, when fish is traditionally eaten in Italy.
They offered us a substantial ricciola, though we had no idea what it was. A white, very meaty fish it made a serious meal.

Also known as rombo maggiore, rombo gigante, and several regional names like rombo di pietra Lazio ; rombo di sasso Veneto ; rummo petruso Campania ; romolo, rummulu pitrusu Sicilia and various names evoking stones and rocks sasso, pietra, pitrusu etc. Trawling is not good. Inevitiably, variations on these names are used for different species in different regions. Also known as suace, suacia etc. Also known as occhino, besugo, bezugo, mupo, mupa, occhialone, pampuni, pampini, pezzogna etc etc Davidson gives many others.
