My wedding cake was a little out of the ordinary. We did a four tiered square cake with vanilla mousse layers and chocolate with raspberry and chocolate mousse filling. The outside had fondant of the Chicago skyline on the bottom tier in champagne color and the on the cake leaves were falling downward on one side. It was beautiful and exactly what I had requested. It couldn't have turned out more beautiful. I was amazed. The service was exceptional and the quality was outstanding. Very flavorful cake, and moist too. I also did my favor through them, chocolates and peanut brittle. I also had a sweets table with chocolate covered strawberries and a big cannoli filled with little cannolis...decorated with my fall colored leaves. I loved it! Everything was delicious! I would highly recommend using Allegretti's bakery for your wedding needs, events, birthdays, holidays, or anything else you may need sweets for! They are a family owned business as well and just celebrated 50 years! What a pleasure to work with them and exceeding my expectations!

I worked with Jacki designing our wedding cake and it was AWESOME. I showed her a few pictures and she designed the cake beautifully. We got to choose two different flavors which was really nice since we could appease all our guests. The cake tasted and looked great! Jacki made our cake perfect without me needing to provide every little detail. Thanks!

If you want a gluten free cake, this is the place to go! Allegretti's made a fabulous gluten-free vanilla cake with canoli creme that was moist and delicious.

Our cake was perfect! It was a fondant iced deco cake they were able to re-create exactly from a picture I had found online. It was an autumn themed mad-hatter cake, perfect for our fall wedding! We had 170 people so we went with a smaller cake and then ordered sheet cakes for serving. The tasting - OMG! - don't eat before you go & try everything! We chose chocolate w/chocolate custard & vanilla w/vanilla custard, people are still raving about how delicious it was!

Everything about the service, price, taste and look of what we got was perfect. We got a cupcake tower of 120 cupcakes, half chocolate, half vanilla with different color frostings. And then we got a small cake for us to cut and for our cake topper that was red velvet and cream cheese inside. It was amazing... Everything about it!

My cake was a red velvet dream! The the magic of friends saying "they know a place" I came to Allegretti's bakery. And I was NOT disappointed. The bakery itself is one of those "been there forever, walk in and your nose is in heaven" places. Sitting down to discuss what I wanted was an absolute breeze. I brought a couple of inspiration photos and with a verbal vomit list of "i want my cake to look like blah blah blah blah" she had it drawn, designed, shaped, and priced for me. Even with knowing that it was in the bag for them, when I saw my cake for the first time while the room was being set, it took my breath away. I was speechless with how beautiful my cake was. I got a three layer square, round, square cake. Red velvet with cream cheese and raspberry filling. Alternating red and white icing with black damask scrollwork along the whole thing. Black and red ribbons and piping at the bottom of each layer with silver drage (candy) beads in the whole design. It looked too good to eat and tasted even better than it looked. Beyond amazing cake for a super delicious price.

The cake and sweet table were amazing. The hall couldn't get the sweets out fast enough, the guests were just snatching them up. They were great to work with and brought my cake and sweet table vision to life. The staff is wonderful and go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect on your day. I would highly recommend them, their cakes are just amazing.

For our tasting we were given slices of cake with the fillings on the side to dip the cake in. This made it really difficult to imagine the cake with the filling the cake was dry for our tasting. Unfortunately I did not even eat the cake at the wedding because it was so busy but if it was anything like our tasting it was nothing special.

Thank you to John Taylor of Angeli's (Naperville, IL) for referring us to Allegretti's! Just as one of the other reviewers noted, Allegretti's made sure we had a great experience with the tasting. There were so many choices, and we were free to do any combination we chose. Our cake turned out perfectly - exactly what we had asked for.

In addition to baking us a great cake (which looked as good as it tasted), Allegretti's also agreed to a special request of ours. We provided them with a special cookie cutter we had found and Allegretti's baked and frosted (and individually wrapped) cookies for each of our guests to take home. This was a special touch that many took note of. Thank you all so much!
