Explanation: Ti amo is the *serious* form of I love you and is also the literally translation of I love you in English.
If you're not sure or are insecure about saying I love you, ti voglio bene is better. It's not only for friends. Literally it means "for you I want good" but the connotation to Italians is much stronger.
