– I'm in love!
– Really!?

What is a good match in Italian for the word "really"? Here the word does not carry any doubt, just excitement.

The best match for "really" in the context that you mention is "davvero":

– I'm in love!
– Really!?


– Mi sono innamorato/a!
– Davvero!?

    Another possibility is Sul serio?!

    It depends on context. You could also use: "Sono innamorato/a" - "Veramente?" (In order to express a disbelief or perplexity for example)

    But the OP explicitly mentioned «Here the word does not carry any doubt», @Arcsn.

Another common option is:

Non ci credo/non posso crederci (I can't believe it).
