Cappuccino has no plural in Italian as the 'ino' at the end is a suffix meaning little. Technically, the plural of ciabatta would be ciabatte, not ciabatti.

Hope no one refuses to serve you for 'getting it wrong', Gerry. I have an image in my mind of a cartoon of a hungry man being ordered from a café for asking for two cappuccino and two ciabatti, or pronouncing the 'g' in tagliatelle.
