  1. If you want to pronounce latte in Italian, others have answered that the ‘a’; sounds like the ‘a’ in ‘father’, ‘e’ sounds almost like the ‘e’ in ‘break.
    The Italian ‘l’ is never velar (i.e, the back of the tongue never rises to touch the velum. The English word-initial ‘l’ sound will work ok here, but not the sylablle-final ‘l’ sound .
    Double consonants in Italian are actually pronounced twice as long as single consonants; so, ‘tt’ is maybe 2/100ths of a second long, instead of 1/100th (don’t laugh). Since ‘t’ is an occlusive sound, what actually happens is that the tongue touches the teeth or gum ridge half-pronounces /t/, and remains touching the place of articulation or a millisecond — then the tongue lets go and finishes pronuncing the ‘t’ sound

  2. “La” is pronounced somewhere between he “a” in “law” and the “a” in “cat” and the “tte “ is prounounced “tay.” The accent is on the first syllable.

  3. My circle of friends tend to pronounce close to as it would be in Italy, short ‘a’, so lattay. As my italophile wife would say if it was lah-tay, it would only have one ‘t’ (i.e. late).
