The Italian word stanotte means tonight but I've also seen traslated as last night.

For example in my Big Green book of Italian verbs it has the sentence: Che hai sognato stanotte?
It gives the translation of this sentence as:
What did you dream about last night?
Should it be: Che hai sognato la notte scorsa?
Can stanotte mean both tonight and last night?
