Thank you Francesco’s Italian Bakery for saving the day! Yesterday was my grandfather’s 92nd Birthday (Halloween). My Dad tried to get him an Italian rum cake (without nuts, his favorite) on Monday bu...t he was unsuccessful as the bakeries he went to were closed. After reading great reviews online, I called Francesco’s when they opened at 6:30am & they had an amazing rum cake ready for me to pick up at 11am. Thank you Francesco’s! You made my Grandfather & my family very happy! We will certainly visit & order from your bakery again in the future. See More

Francesco’s Italian Bakery was an excellent choice for our wedding cake. Our white cake with raspberry filling and white butter cream icing, well, took the cake! It was absolutely delicious; so much... so that we plan to order another cake from them for our first anniversary. Frank worked with us to look through the wide variety of options for both cake flavor and decoration that they offer, and ended up combining two decorative styles for us to make our final cake. It ended up exactly as we wanted! The bakery itself was welcoming and provided top notch service. Every time we stopped in for an appointment regarding the cake we left with some delicious goodies to take home. We would highly recommend them for a wedding cake or any other baked goody you might be in search of. See More

Amazing desserts! Everyone at our wedding loved everything! The dessert variety tray did not make it through the night, and the leftover cupcakes were moist for several days! The tasting was great (ac...cording to my niece) and everything was delivered on time the day of the wedding. Thanks again! See More
