Di Fara Pizza
Revered pizzeria, circa-1964

The Zagat Review
Pizzaiolo “legend” Dom DeMarco is “a master plying his art” at this 1965 Midwood “institution” , where his “lovingly handmade” pies are “a must for the pizza addicted” ; despite “unappealing” digs, “interminable waits” and service with “zero sense of urgency” , it’s “thronged” with those who urge “patience – it’s worth it.”

Is it the best pizza in N.Y.? Do they have some of the best ingredients? Can you taste the difference? Is it worth the trip? Is it worth $5 a slice? Is it worth waiting an hour and a half for two slices? These are all the questions you'll be asking yourself before, during and after visiting Di Fara's. If you live in NYC and you have never been, you should go. It is some of the best pizza I've ever had. The quality of the sauce, cheese and fresh ingredients are top notch. However, after waiting an hour and a half, you'll deeply question if it was all worth it. Your first inclination will be - hell no! - I've got better pizza around the block. Then hours later after you finished your slices, you wish you could go back tomorrow and not wait so long. I would give Di Fara 5 stars, I'm withholding a star for the wait. New Yorkers HATE waiting.

Absolutely fantastic pizza! You must try if you're in the area. Try coming during an off hour during the week because once the Friday hits, you'll easily be waiting for an hour for a pie through the entire weekend. This man has been here for ages. He puts all his love into his art and you can really taste it. It's looks like a hole in the wall, but has the taste of a 5 star restaurant. You must come in to place an order. No seamless, no yelp 24. Cash only. On the higher end of price at about $30 a pie.

It really is some of the best pizza. If you're like me and typically shy away from a Sicilian slice because the bread-to-sauce ratio is always too big, then fight your instincts because that is the "slice" to get here. I went cheese and fresh basil - both worth the trip.
