Italians use the expression 'al fresco' to mean 'in the chill' or 'in the cool'. ... When tourists are in a restaurant and want to eat outside, they usually say they want to eat 'al fresco'. This is a funny mistake. In Italian, the expression has a completely different meaning. 'Al fresco' literally means 'in prison'! Al Fresco, the outfit we are discussing here, describe the phrase as (outdoors) -- literally, “to fuck outdoors".
