Ve ne dobbiamo uno.

English Translation

We owe you one.

Can anyone explain what the ‘ve’ here signifies? Grazie!

It is the personal pronoun plural:
“We owe you (all) one.”
Adressing a single person it would be:
“Te ne dobbiamo uno.”
It is “ve/te” instead of “vi/ti” because another pronoun follows.


Thank you MRgK. Great explanation!

Yes, an amazing explanation. Thanks you!
