I've checked all the threads on this and I know that bello/bella are the only words that appear, but I'm asking if there are any other alternatives that you can offer as synonyms -
I've just received a set of photos of four different families, all with children in their teens and twenties, and they are all very beautiful, and I was just wondering if there is any way to comment in Italian without using the same word over and over -
in English, I might say, "the boys are all handsome, and the girls are lovely" etc. We can also say = very pretty/attractive, etc.

What other words can I use in Italian?

    in italian we use words like carino (pretty) bello (beautiful), bellissimo (the superlative of bello) molto bello

    for children you can say dolce (sweet) tenero (probably is tender in english? I'm not sure!)

    Non tutti si possono usare nel tuo caso ma delle figlie potrebbero essere incantevoli, carine, aggraziate, splendide, dolci, deliziose, adorabili. Dipende anche molto dall'età e da quanto devi essere sincero nel dire che sono belle :)
