I went to Arthur Avenue last week to get some pastries at Delillo's Bakery but there was a "for rent" sign on the retail space it used to occupy. Did Delillo's move to a new location, or did it go out of business?

You should have looked around a bit.They moved 2 doors down the street.
The new address is 610 E 187th St.

The new place is really big - I'm sure they'd be upset that you were able to miss it. Last time I went there, I wanted to buy about $6 of pastries with change - mostly quarters, and they gave me such an attitude. I've been going to other places since - Egidios is nice and Ginos is fine for canolies & way cheaper. I got tiramisu there for $1 - at De Lillos it's more like $4, but honestly De Lillo's is much better.

Egidios is my favorite because it looks and feels like it is in Italy !

Thanks so much for all the responses, actually I did look around, I purchased Italian bread at Addeo's, went to the Arthur Avenue market, purchased lottery tickets, etc. I guess the new DeLillo's didn't catch my eye, maybe I wasn't expecting a new place to be so close to the old DeLillo's. I caught the attitude at DeLillo's the last time I was on Arthur Ave. also, but didn't know of another good place for pastries, but now I do from all your posts! It's such bad business to treat customers shabbily, I guess they have so many customers that it doesn't matter to their pocketbook if they treat customers badly, otherwise they wouldn't be doing it!

My birthday is next week and I was going to pick up a canoli cake from Artuso's because I read on-line that they have the best one, any other places around Arthur Ave. with good or better canoli cakes than Artuso?

One more comment, I couldn't find a place that sold pizza by the slice, or did I miss that too? Full Moon pizza didn't have prices by the slice, and neither did the pizza place in the back of Arthur Avenue indoor market. Am I right that most of the pizza's is sold whole around there?

Full Moon definately has pizza by the slice - maybe they're just not posting their prices. I'm sure there are other places, but I'm hooked on Full Moon's eggplant pizza so I don't try anywhere else. Addeo's is by far the best bread I've had in Little Italy. Sorry, but I have no canoli cake experience - but it sounds great.

How is Arthur Avenue compared to Little Italy in Manhattan? Is the quality of the food better? I'm interested in checking it out.
