Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino put the moves on Jesse Eisenberg on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Tuesday night.

He also put on display his Italian-language skills -- apparently honed while shooting the new season of MTV's reality hit in Florence, Italy.

Asked by Leno what he would say to Eisenberg if the actor were actually "an attractive Italian woman," Sorrentino replied: "I would have to say, 'Ciao, signorina.' That means, 'Hello miss,' in Italian."

Sorrentino added that he would then follow up with a compliment.

" I would say, 'che dolce,' which means, 'You are sweet.' At that particular point, [I would say], 'Let's go to the house.'"

Jersey Shore returned to MTV last week to 8.8 million total viewers, marking its most-watched season premiere.
