I've seen sentences with "...sono pieno" and "...sono piena", so from what I can tell "sono pieno" is used if the person speaking is a man, and "sono piena" is case it's a woman, is this correct?

You're right! :)

Marziotta- is there a more correct or formal way of saying "full" in this context? (such as "I am satieted" in English)? Do people REALLY say "sono piena"???

Awesome, thanks

Actually, according to my Italian landlady, when a woman says "Sono piena," it means "I am pregnant." The correct expression for a woman is, "Sono satsia, grazie."

I allways say this too when i am in a restaurant and the waiter asks me if I want the bill ;-)

The verb is incorrect. Italians use 'avere' with pieno, not 'essere'.
