I have long wondered whether I should pay attention to this experience at all. I decided to write a short review, because I live in the hope that everyone wants to get better, so maybe with Al Parco the same happens.

But in 3 words: a short horror story.

I remind you that the aim of gastronomy stories is to be “undercover”, so the photos are taken with mobile phone camera.

For some time, photos from the restaurant “Al Parco” have been popping up on Facebook, which was promising a true gastronomic experience. One Sunday we went to lunch there.

The restaurant is indeed located in the park and I believe that when it’s sunny, enjoyment in the garden is complete. When I entered the restaurant, I did not feel the smell of food, but the smell of tobacco smoke. I was thinking they might have a part separated for non-smokers, but they do not.

By insight into the menu, we saw that prices are in the ranking with other similar restaurants. We decided to have the turkey in a sour cherry sauce and a beefsteak in green pepper.

However, you can see from the photos that we did not eat those dishes. Why?

The waiter has advised that the turkey with cherries (which is listed as a specialty of the house) is generally returned by the guests. He suggested a turkey in peanut sauce (“which is always a hit”) and a beefsteak in olive oil that is new to the offer.

We waited for the dishes for 40 minutes. I was wondering if they are hunting the turkey in the yard.

There was at least 300 gr of turkey on the plate, but the ratio with the aside dish does not exist. There was too much peanut sauce and the dish had no freshness.

However, far worse problem and ignorance of basic culinary techniques occurred at the beefsteak (if you can recognize it in the photo).

Namely, I ordered a medium rare beefsteak (not a beefsteak salad). The beefsteak arrived carbonated and cut out.

Despite the best intentions, more than 1 gold spoon would be unrealistic. Although there are plenty of dishes on the Al Parco’s menu, I think it’s just a trap. Quantity can sometimes impair quality.
