    Gnocchi - correct pronunciation is "Nyoh-kee, not "knock-ee".

    Fajitas - once again, J is an H "faheetas"

    Noir is "Nwahr"...not "noy-er".

    I could go on forever!
    Oh and penne not penny lol.

    Food pronunciation is a terrible one.

    Also falafel. My mother pronounced is full-e-ful lol wt!! Haha

    There are often words that have a "t" on the end that's pronounced when it shouldn't be. Another one I silently giggle at.

    My gran says film as filum..might be an old fashioned way of saying it or something but I thought it was quite funny when I was younger. My step dad calls a cappuccino a cafficcino.

    Ohh and if I get asked one more time how many times I've been to Canadia I am going to freak! Also, not a mispronunciation but the brittish way of saying vitamins annoys me for some reason.

    I believe both are correct - one is northern Italian pronunciation and the other southern Italian pronunciation. I could be wrong though.
    ETA: Both are delicious!

    My dh pronounces plain as play-in.

    He also pronounces the name wendy as windy. He works with a lady named wendy and I told him that she'd probably think he was taking the p!ss and that it was pronounced when-dy. He then stated calling her when-dy but really slowly and with a long pause between the when and the dy
