New location with lots of seating indoors and out. No more squeezing into small tables by the wall. The pastry assortment infantastic and it is all prepared instore and fresh. The cannollis are irresistable. A must stop when visiting Little Italy or Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, unlike the touristy Little Italy in Manhattan. Don't forget to buy italian delicacies and fresh breads on Arthur Avenue and visit the Market. You will be impressed.

One of my fondes childhood memories is going to the tiny storefront ofDeLillo Pastry on 187th Street near Arthur Avenue. With room to seat only a handful of people, it truly was a hidden jem. Among the cognoscenti, they have has the reputation of making the finest Italian pastries in the entire New York metropolitan area. There is simply none better outside of Italy. Having recently expanded into a cafe I was afraid that the quality of the product would go down as it has in Ferraras and the other Manhattan mainstays. Glad to say that though the surroundings are much more plush, the thing that brings you there--crispy yet moist sfogliatella, freshly filled cannoli, melt in your mouth pignoli cookies, ricotta cheese cake-- all retain their old world authenticity. On top of that the staff are polite and efficient and the owners seem to bee there 24/7 to make sure it stays that way.

anything with canoli cream here is excellent. pignolli cookies are also great. the best italian ice anywhere is there cream flavored ice. I have to cross a bridge to get there, and probably pass 100 bakeries on the way. it's worth it!

We went here for dessert following dinner at a nearby restaurant. Upon entering, I felt like a kid in a candy shop: the cases were filled with a wide assortment of beautiful cookies, cakes and pastries. My husband and I carefully made our selections and placed the order when the waitress came to our table. The pastries were brought quickly, and then she disappeared. My cappuccino was delivered when the pastry was almost completed; my husband never got his coffee, having been told that a new pot had to be brewed and it would be awhile ~ he cancelled the coffee. Again we couldn't find our waitress and left cash on the table rather than waiting to charge the bill just so we could het out of there.
