La Divina Italian Café will open Nov. 8 at 3535 Perkins Road, Suite 360, in the new Acadian Village Shopping Center in Baton Rouge.

La Divina specializes in making artisanal Italian food, espresso, gelati and sorbetti, using natural, local and organic products when possible.

Hours are 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday.

Lance LeBlanc, a Baton Rouge native and life-long resident, is opening the location.

Carmelo and Katrina Turillo opened the original La Divina Gelateria on Magazine Street in New Orleans in 2007 after the couple lived in Florence, Italy. Other locations are on St. Peters in the French Quarter and during the school year on the Loyola University campus.
