Baciami Gelateria & Creperia


Hancock Park, Los Angeles, CA. Immediately entering this clean and quaint gelato shop in Larchmont Village, my friend and I were greeted by three of three staff members. Barely in the door and 100% friendliness. I thought, is this a new business? Then I overheard a nearby conversation that dated this little gelato and crepe shop to a little over 7 months old. 

Spoonful after spoonful of samples, it didn't appear the staff minded an indecisive palette, so onward to ordering. The staff are quite helpful in helping you choose, be sure to ask for a few suggestion and house favorites. I've noticed more recently that ice cream and gelato places with the more 'gourmet' or creative flavors charge just a bit more than other shops. This place certainly joins that crowd in the upper tier with the pricier bites. However, my nearly $5.00 for my 'small' order of amaretto was worth the expense. 

Creamy, tasty, and...incredibly amaretto. Unsure how they work these flavors in, but it certainly ups the ante for its local frozen sweet competitors. The gelato stays solid as you savor, unless you take quite some time before taking your first bite. Flavors are a'plenty, with a separate case hosting their sorbetto and general fruit-oriented choices. A bit difficult to choose, but it's local enough to try again and again.

The gelato shop closes at 9:00pm and the crepe machinery is closed down within 15-20 minutes of this hour. If you're looking for sweet or savory, be sure to stop with enough time to look at the menu and place an order. My amaretto scoop was more than enough to satisfy my need for as close to ice cream as I wanted on this particular evening stroll in Larchmont Village.
