Italian to English translations [PRO]
Italian term or phrase:letto alla francese
from the description of an apartment: "...tavolo , sedie , letto alla francese ..."
What kind of bed is this? Would you want to spend two weeks in it with someone who is just a friend?
Explanation: The Italian is a synonym for "letto matrimoniale," a bed for two. It is sufficiently large for two people, just not as big as a queen or king. I don't believe the term "French style" is used in English at all.
