Lei è una bella ragazza.


Explanation:
This should already break the ice.

If you are already a bit more familiar with the girl, you could say: "(tu) sei una bella ragazza"

Good luck!

che bella che sei OR


Explanation:
1) Quanto sei bella - how beautiful you are
2) Mamma mia, che schianto - Wow!,
3) Sei bella da togliere il fiato - You take my breath away
4) Cosa, più bella non c'è (Eros Ramazzzotti?) - there is nothing lovelier than you...

These'll keep you going for a while so take your pick if you want to get away from the literal translation...and good luck!

Sai che sei proprio carina?


Explanation:
