Slang expressions

Ciao a tutti!! I came across these expressions in a video and I was wondering if they were actually commonly used or if some were from dialects, and also if the translation of them were correct? Also, if there any other common slang terms, be they expressions or words that would come in handy, could you share them with me please? Thank you in advance!!

Cosa fai di bello? - What's up?
Madò - jeez
Però - No way!!
Zitto - shut up!!
Dai - Come on/Stop!!
C'e' mancato un pelo - That was a close call
Mi fa cagare - It's awful!
Strafigo - Very cool
Simpi - nice

    Cosa fai di bello? - What are you doing? Come va? - What's up?
    Madò - jeez (Mado' - Madonna) ok
    Però - wow (f.e.: if you see a really nice woman crossing the road, you can say "però" to your friend...usually però means but)
    Zitto - shut up!!
    Dai - Come on/Stop!!
    C'e' mancato un pelo - That was a close call
    Mi fa cagare - It's awful!
    Strafigo - Very cool
    Simpi - nice (sorry, never heard, but probably comes to simpatico)
