Italian croissants are called "Cornetto" or in plural form "Cornetti". 

The body is a little different from that of French origin, a bit more dense and brioche-like, and decidedly sweeter. They can be enjoyed plain, filled, or sandwiched with various sweet treats, jam, cream, nutella etc. Having one of them with a strong cafè (espresso) is the winning combination for Italian breakfasts for many.
