Italian Idioms I

Italian idioms I

LASCIAR STARE to leave alone
A DETTA DI TUTTI by all accounts
PASSARLA LISCIA to get away with
ALLA META DELL'OPERA half the battle
SANO COMO UN PESCE sound as a bell
ALL'IMPROVVISO out of the blue
UN FULMINE A CIEL SERENO a bolt out of the blue
IL POMO DELLA DISCORDIA a bone of contention
UNA GATTA DA PELARE a bone to pick
Lascia stare il gatto Leave the cat alone
A detta di tutti la sua moglie è bella By all accounts, his wife is beautiful
Non la passerà liscia He won't get away with that
Chi ben comincia è alla metà dell'opera Starting is half the battle
Il suo fratello è sano como un pesce His brother is sound as a bell
La donna è apparso all'improvviso The woman appeared out of the blue
La loro proposta è stata un fulmine a ciel sereno Their proposal was a bolt out of the blue
Lo stipendio basso è il pomo della discordia The low pay is a bone of contention
Ho una gatta da pelare con lui I've a bone to pick with him
