You’ve been traveling the East Coast of Australia. You’ve arrived in Surfers Paradise, the most touristy city of all. The streets are lined with kebab joints, stale pizza slices, McDonalds, and take away Chinese. Where do you go for food? From the heart of town, cruise down Gold Coast Highway towards the Q1 tower. On the left hand side you’ll arrive at my favorite restaurant in Surfers Paradise, Al Fresco.
Al Fresco is a family run Italian Restaurant. You’ll meet the proprietors Tony and Silvana every night; I used to live a block away and every time I walked by I’d see them running around serving and entertaining customers. It’s the type of place where the walls are covered in photos of people enjoying their food, including many celebrities, both local and international. Depending on the weather there is indoor and outdoor seating. You can rely on Tony and Silvana to take great care of you, and the food is great. If you want to drink, they are a licensed establishment, or you can bring your own wine for a small cork-age fee. There is a bottle shop next door just in case…
