.…CAREFUL….

There is a substantial cultural difference between Italian and English speaking countries.
What you'd refer to as “tonight” will in most cases be rendered in Italian with STASERA and almost never with STANOTTE (which literally means “Tonight“).

CI VEDIAMO STASERA ALLE 7.
I'll see you tonight at 7.

In Italian STASERA is good for anything that takes place before midnight.

▷  SOME EXAMPLES

CI VEDIAMO STASERA!
I'll see you tonight / We'll see each other tonight!

CHE FAI STASERA?
What are you doing tonight?

STASERA PIOVE…
Tonight it's raining / Tonight it's going to rain.

STASERA ALLE 10 ANDIAMO AL CINEMA
Tonight at 10 we're going to the movies.
