We were heading to Albany to surprise my parents and asked a local where to get the best Italian Pastry and were given Florentine and another bakery. I am so very glad we chose Florentine because the cannoli were beyond delicious. They sized the cannoli just right at 3 - 4 bites. Additionally they had the crispest pastry shell we'd... More

Went to Florentine bakery for the first time. Ordered a variety of pastries Rum babba, Tiramisu, cream puffs. The quality and value exceeded that of higher priced, large city bakeries. Will definitely be back.

BEST PASTRIES on earth. Pusties, cannoli and the works. Cappucino, Expresso in a real Euro coffee house atmosphere. My former ladyfriend Rima Badalians packed her car's trunk with Florentine goodies and brought them to NYC to her family there...who said the Utica products spoiled them forever..and that NYC could not compete . It's just East of O'Scugnizzo's on Bleecker Street... More

I can,t spell all the names of the goodies but they are wonderful. The " pusties" are filled with many pudding favorites with the good crust. The lobster tail are crispy... More

Wonderful and delicious cookies, cakes, and pastries. One of the very few bakeries I have found outside of NYC with excellent pastry. Cannoli cake is fantastic.

I have been going to this bakery since I was a kid. Hands down the best pastry I have had outside of NYC and Italy. The lemon pasties are fantastic and the lobster tails will make you want to slap your mother. If you are in Utica, you must go here!

I worked at the Florentine in high school, and filled about 8 million cannoli during that time! i have tried them all over the US, and none can compare with the ones at the Florentine.

Whether you go to the old Florentine's on Bleecker Street or the new one in New Hartford, you'll enjoy the experience. Back in the early 70s, my father would send us care packages from Utica with Florentine's pastries included -- shipped express to Ohio. It was worth the price! Still is. The Bleecker Street pastry shop is classic... the one... More
