Visiting my bro in Utica and right around the corner from his place is the best bakery I have ever been to - and I'm super picky. Everything looked so good, I thought, well, it can't taste that good - but it does. We had a bunch of pastries, and all were great, but what I remember the most was... More

I've been to Italy and always visit the Florentine when in Utica. The Italian coffee and pastries are on par with each other.

Do not miss this place. The rum cake alone (which is sold by the slice) will send you to heaven. Great pusties, cannoli, too. This place has been in business for at least 60 years, and it is unique and wonderful. You can eat your treat inside if you wish with some Italian coffee. Don't miss it.

I've eaten Florentine Pastries for over 30 years. You will not find a better pastry anywhere. I've had Italian pastries from little Italy's in the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan, Boston, and Toronto, including pastries in Sicily as well. These are awesome and legit pastries, fresh, tasty, and loaded with creams and fillings. No corner cutting here. Prices are very reasonable as... More

Needed a cake for co-workers birthday so ordered a rum cake for 12 people. It was absolutely delicious!! Everyone loved it. The frosting was the bat I ever tasted and the cake filled with strawberries was so moist.

Their almond paste cookies are the best I have ever had. And their "pusties" are fabulous. Very had to make up your mind with the wonderful choices they offer.

This bakery is a legend and the desserts are legendary. I visited after years for a birthday treat with a group. The baked goods were tasty as always but I was horrified by how dirty the entire place was. Not only is it old and tired, it is dirty - the whole place, including the cafe and the bathroom was...

It is awesome to know that Utica have place like Florentine. Go and visit and spend money there. Canollis, Napoleon, almond cookies, yummy. I will be back.... More
