Chocolate and hazelnut flavored, with crunchy bits of toasted hazelnuts and a lace of dark chocolate suspended in each bite. Bacio gelato at Pane and Gelato in Eastchester is pure, creamy decadence. There are 24 flavors on hand daily in the stand-alone Eastchester shop, and the selection is constantly changing. Many of the ingredients for the gelato, espresso, pastries and bread are flown in from Italy, so you’d be hard pressed to find a more authentic European gelato this close to home. Gelato and espresso, anyone?
