al palato

“soft” or “well done” when referred to pasta. opposite of “al dente”.

literally, “al palato” means “to the palate”. palate is the upper part of the mouth that in combination with the upward tongue pressure can be used to chew soft foods. most applicable to those who are missing teeth (or awaiting for them to grow for that matter).

the second definition of the word “palato” is “taste”. so it can be interpreted as “to the taste” as well 🙂
