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

Best Cappuccino I have ever had - hands down ! Any time I'm back in tow, I head to the Florentine for the Cappuccino and maybe a Cannoli or Pusti . I sometime take home a few pounds of the almond paste cookies for safe keeping ;) The atmosphere is dated 50's and we love i A Utica legend.

My wife and I have been going to The Florentine since before we were married. We took our children here when they were newborns and now take our grandchildren. The pastries are incredible!

If you have a sweet tooth as I do and LOVE some great home made pastries, especially those Italian ones, don't miss out on this gem. They've been around for over 50 years and are a quiet best kept secret of the central valley...My Grandma was a great baker and when she wanted to have or give us a treat... More

There are 2 Florentine Pastry Shops in our area. The one on Bleecker St. in Utica is the original and is the best. They do the baking there and you can enjoy an espresso and cannoli in their quiet cafe' room. The other Florentine is in New Hartford in the Orchards shopping plaza. It is frequented by people leaving the... More

We have never been disappointed with anything we have purchased from The Florentine. Their selection is outstanding and the flavor can't be beat. Everything is attractive and yummy looking. The only problem is deciding what to buy as you want one of everything.
