When the Belmont section of the Bronx ("Italian Fordham") housed 40,000+ Italians and Italian-Americans through the late 1960's, the local consensus was that the best of the most popular varieties of southern Italian-style (Neapolitan and Sicilian) pastry in the New York metro area could be found at a little shop called Colavolpe at the SW corner of Prospect Ave./ E.187th St. DeLillo came in a close second back then, with more variety, and now it is Numero Uno in quality.. The much larger Artuso's, located at Crescent Ave./E. 187th St. (but not other stores using the name in the metro area) comes in second these days in quality, and offers greater variety and capacity for catering large parties. Bensonhurst, eat your heart out: you can't make up in pastry size what you lack in sophistication. Grand Street, give it up: only the tourists (except those from Italy) are fooled by the high prices.

Pros: Quality, service, historic authenticity

Cons: Very cramped; lines out the door during days just before Christmas and Easter

I missed the petite fours we used to get from De Lillo's Pastry Shop, so much so that I had my brother, Steven drive all the way down to the old neighborhood, from Hartford, CT just to pick up a box to send to me out here in Culver City, CA. Now that I've got the exact address and phone number, which came on the box, I'll just call them up and order another supply shipped directly from De Lillo's. Thanks, Steven. And, thank you, De Lillo's!

This is average pastry. Whoever might think this is the best should take a ride down to Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, 18th Ave. & 70th St. and surrounding area, where the best rated pastry bakers in the USA can be found.

Delillo's has the best pastries in the tristate area. You can't go wrong. It doesn't hurt that the staff is friendly & accomodating as well!
