A sure way to know if a person is Italian is to ask. Otherwise, the conclusion is based on guesses. It's a good guess that a person is Italian if that person has Italian first and last names. It's a good guess that a person is Italian if that person likes and knows how to prepare Italian food properly. It's a good guess that a person is Italian if that person seems to know a lot about Italy and is comfortable in using the language. But then, that person also could be one of the many admirers of Italy and of Italian culture, food, language and life.

And generally, you may be of Italian descent if you or your family is from any Italian community anywhere in the world, if Italian is a language that's passed down in your family, or if your parents tell you that you are of Italian descent.
