I researched this some years ago, but don't have the details anymore -
but, yes - US passport holders MUST use their US passports when entering
or leaving the US, no matter how many other passports they may have.
The UK doesn't seem to mind if its citizens use other passports when
they enter the country.

When I check in for a flight, I show the passport I intend to use for
passport control at the other end., i.e., I show the US passport at
checkin when leaving Italy and the Italian passport when leaving the
US.

Going through Immigration in the EU, I use my EU passport; going through
US immigration, I use my US one.
Some years back, when the UK had exit control, I would show the UK
passport to Immigration, and the US one to the airline. I once
accidentally showed my US passport at exit control (not realising that
it was an Immigration check - I was jet-lagged) and was scolded for not
showing the UK one.
