I actually think the last word might be pianissimo or some such Itialian word as well. but the spelling I gave is what is in my chess books (admittedly old). You can even find that spelling via google... whether it is right or wrong is another issue...
1.e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. c3 is Giuoco Piano (Slow game)

1.e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. d3 is Giuoco Pianissimo (Very very slow game)

Google search for "guiko piano":

Google search for "guiko pianissimo":

It's hard to shoot total blanks with google. In addition, neither google translate nor babelfish will even recognize "guiko" as an Italian word.
