The phrase al fresco is borrowed from Italian for “in the cool [air]”, although it is not in current use in that language to refer to dining outside. Instead, Italians use the phrases fuori (“outside”, “outdoor”) or all’aperto (“in the open [air]”). In Italian, the expression al fresco usually refers to spending time in jail.
Al fresco dining or dining alfresco is eating outside. In temperate climates, al fresco dining is especially popular in the summer months when temperatures and weather are most favorable. It is a style of dining that is casual and often party-like in its atmosphere.
