When you hear “family-owned” in terms of an ice cream shop, you likely imagine a cozy spot with pleasant staff and house-made flavors. At Il Bacio Ice Cream, that’s just what you’ll find.
Since 1988, Tony and Gina Nascimento have been making creative ice cream. More specifically, they’ve been at their current location in Danbury since 2003. Their menu rotates hundreds of varieties of ice cream, italian ice, and other treats, with unique and classic flavors alike. As The Connecticut Times reports: “Kids line up for Cupcake and Cookie Monster, grown-ups for Chocolate Covered Strawberry and Cardiac Arrest (made with seven kinds of cocoa and chocolate), all agers for Italian ice—35 flavors, with 16 out at all times, notably lemon, lime-berry and chocolate.”
With so many delicious options to choose from, it’s no surprise that this family-owned ice cream shop is a favorite spot for both locals and out of town visitors to enjoy a treat. And with the enthusiasm and attention you expect from a small business, the experience will be just as pleasant as the dessert. It’s clear that the team behind Il Bacio cares about their customers—and you’ll taste that care in every scoop.
