Their Bella Gioiosa has a significantly truncated repeat structure.  The group for which this music was recorded does a version of the Bella Gioiosa that cuts off the last 4 verses.  The same can be said about their Spagnoletta recording, but I'm not sure about the other dances off the top of my head, except that the Castellana recording is pretty good.

I'm guessing you're referring to their Contrapasso. It's a little
brisk for beginners, but danceable. Unfortunately, the sound clip
isn't long enough to know if the repeats are correct.

They have two CDs, each with a version of Bella Gioiosa. That's
another song I've been looking for. I'm not thrilled with either of
the two versions I have. I may have to spend a couple of bucks to
check these out.
