Between French and Italian there are some rules that allow to understand words in the other language. For instance, an I followed by a vowel in Italian gives often an L in French (piazza => place, ghiaccio => glace, pianeta => planète, piombo => plomb). An ê or an â in French gives an S in Italian (forêt => foresta, prêt => presto o prestito, bête => bestia). The funniest word I found was "biasimare" that according to the rules gives "blâmer" ! Blâmer looks like "to blame" but is not exactly a true cognate.

oui, sì, yes: that's Romance philology... French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian come from Latin (but also Gallego, Catalan, Provençal, Sardo, Friulano and all Italian dialects and French patoises), with not so different linguistic form evolutions.
If a "Romance" speaker read enough about those similitudes can at least understand if not speak another Romance language easily.
