– 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!?

    It depends on context. You could also use: "Sono innamorato/a" - "Veramente?" (In order to express a disbelief or perplexity for example) – Arcsn Mar 10 '16 at 22:19

    But the OP explicitly mentioned «Here the word does not carry any doubt», @Arcsn. – DaG Mar 11 '16 at 8:59
  • You can also use Ma dài?! – N74 Mar 23 '16 at 13:17

Another common option is:

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