I aways considered the curley leaf to be for decoration, not much flavor IMO.

I agree with Alex, although all parsley has some nutrients, and can freshen your breath. :)

Curley leaf parsley has a more bitter/stronger flavor I think vs flat leaf Italian parsley. Curley for garnish, flat leaf for cooking. :)
