$6 for $12 Worth of Gelato and Cappuccino

A small cup of freshly prepared gelato ($4) combines two flavors, such as caramel and Sicilian pistachio, while the medium cup ($5) contains three. Cappuccinos and other specialty drinks feature Lavazza coffee.

Bacio di Roma

There are countless gelato shops in Rome, yet Simone Romano managed to snag the Best Gelato in the City title by the prominent Italian food magazine, Gambero Ross. Now relocated to Baton Rouge, Romano’s talent for handcrafting decadent treats has not ceased; he owns and operates Bacio di Roma—or Kiss from Rome—where he has earned local praise from publications such as Dig and the Daily Reveille.

Inside the Baton Rouge gelateria, Romano prepares a range of flavors from all-natural ingredients. As Kendra Chamberlain of Dig learned, gelato must be created in small batches. This means that Romano works up to 10 hours a day to create each batch by hand and by himself—just like in Italy, where Keebler Elves are illegal. He pairs his icy treats with Lavazza coffee drinks, from espresso served straight up to lattes and chocolaty mochas. Romano also handcrafts an array of decadent Italian desserts, including cannoli, tiramisu, and panna cotta.

The shop is open during current remodeling to enhance the store's cozy and warm ambiance.
