mi va (+ nome) or mi va (di + infinito)

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression mi va (+ nome) or mi va (di + infinito), which means to feel like something or to feel like doing something.

This is a common expression in Italian that should be learned and practiced! If an infinitive is used, it must be preceded by the preposition di.

See the expression used below:

Marco called us, “Listen, Davide, what are you and Marina doing tonight? This heat is unbearable, and I would like something cold. Do you feel like getting an ice cream after dinner?”
