It’s hard to miss the floor-to-ceiling photographs of luscious gelato in artful swirls lining the windows of 141 1/2 N. Larchmont Blvd. We did a little digging to bring you the “scoop” on Bacio di Latte, the new sweet treat destination coming to the boulevard.
Milan-born brothers Edoardo and Luigi travelled across Italy to learn the art of traditional gelato. The key to success: quality raw ingredients they transform into the decadent dessert right before the eyes of their excited customers.
With two other California locations (one at Fashion Island Newport Beach and one at Westfield Century City mall), this will be the third stateside presence for the Italian company. Bacio di Latte brings the secret of genuine Italian gelato to our very neighborhood by sourcing the best quality ingredients from family farms and local producers.
We spoke with the Bacio di Latte team, who shared with us that they chose Larchmont Village for the wonderful community and their desire to create a “place that people can spend a sweet moment with their beloved ones enjoying an authentic Italian gelato.” They have promised to keep the Buzz updated on an official opening date, but are projecting we’ll be enjoying the Italian treat by mid-to-late spring 2022.
We can also officially report to you at this time that FedEx Office will be taking over the old Trina Turk space at 212 N. Larchmont Blvd…but we’re still waiting for details on when that one will open.
