Gnocchi is one of my favorite Italian dishes. Like bruschetta, it’s an Italian food word that people have some trouble with. Never fear, the Italian pronunciation police are here.
The “gno” makes a “nyo” sound with a silent “g”.
The “cch” is pronounced as a hard “k”.
The “i” is an “ee” sound as in “tree”.
Gnocchi is the plural form of the word. The singular is “gnocco.” So you might order a plate of gnocchi and savor each delicious gnocco on that plate.
Now go forth and order gnocchi at your favorite Italian restaurant with confidence!
