Water Trail Rose amp; Shoes Red Boating Women's Walking Bornran Casual Hiking Outdoor Sneakers People learning Italian sometimes use the words ‘buono’ and ‘bene’ incorrectly. They associate ‘buono’ with eating well and ‘bene’ with how good the food is. Unfortunately this doesn’t work in Italian as the following examples clearly show:

  • Le chiacchiere sono buone = the chiacchiere are good
  • Ho mangiato bene = I have eaten well

Grammar rules

What is the difference then? The answer is simple if we look at the grammar:

  • Outdoor Sneakers Rose Bornran Red Hiking Walking amp; Women's Water Casual Shoes Trail Boating ‘buono’ is an adjective (aggettivo) which says something about a noun;
  • ‘bene’ is an adverb (avverbio) which says something about a verb. Both ‘avverbio’ and ‘adverb’ come from the Latin ‘adverbium’ which literally means ‘in relation to the verb’.

So, ‘buono’ is always used with a noun and ‘bene’ with a verb.
