The Italian language was a language spoken on the planet Earth, predominantly spoken by Italians and in Italy.

A 17th century map from Earth labeled several locations in Italian, including the Indian Ocean (Mar di India) and the Bay of Bengal (Golfo de Bengala). (Star Trek: Enterprise, opening credits)

Spock asked Sybok "Qual sei tu?", translating as "Who art thou?" from Italian, when he initially didn't recognize his half-brother on Nimbus III in 2287. Sybok himself later used this phrase upon encountering an entity on Sha Ka Ree. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

Leonardo da Vinci in the holodeck program created by Kathryn Janeway, as well as various others, occasionally spoke Italian:

The Star Trek: Voyager episode title "Virtuoso" is Italian, meaning virtuous or master.

The phrase used by Spock and Sybok is a quote from Dante's Divine Comedy.

The script for "The Siege of AR-558" misspelled "capisce" as "capice".
