“Best Pastries in Upstate NY”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

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.

“Best cannoli in Upstate New York.”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

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!

“Best cannoli”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

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.

“A Utica Tradition. Don't Miss It.”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

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 I much prefer. Some seating, great cappuccino, and fresh made, traditional Italian pastries. Cannoli are the best I've had outside of Italy but the lemon pusti and the cream puffs are superb as well. If you're in Utica, try it.. prices used to 40 cents in the 1970s when I first went with my bride -- they've gone up a bit but they're still a steal!!!
