Why Picobello Translations?

Pico bello means excellent, just not in Italian. The term is used in the Netherlands (where I live) and the linguists believe it to be an Italian-sounding version of another Dutch word, piekfijn. The Dutch love to use this pseudo-Italian term, especially as a sign of appreciation when communicating with an Italian person, who will inevitably be left wondering what the Dutch were trying to say. Nothing too serious when you’re talking to the ice-cream vendor while you’re on holiday in Venice, but you may want to avoid it when talking to a business relation.
