Di Fara: From the Godfather of Pizza


We're going to go out on a limb and say that a slice from Di Fara's is one of the best things we've ever eaten.

Domenico DeMarco, the legendary owner of Di Fara, makes each pizza with love. It's his passion. He meticulously creates each pie as if it is a work of art. Dom, as he is called by his loyal following, is the only person that makes the pizza here and has done so since 1964. Every slice and pie is made to order, which sometimes results in waiting in line for an hour or more! However, believe us when we say that the wait is worth it.

For each masterpiece, Dom uses imported ingredients. The extra-virgin olive oil comes from Italy, tomatoes from San Marzano, and then there's the combination of Parmigianino-Reggiano cheese and buffalo mozzarella. Right before Dom serves you the slice, he cuts fresh basil (imported from Israel) right off the stem and onto your plate. With each bite, you realize that it is something different - different than any other pizza you have ever bitten into

In the end, in a city with a pizza place on every block, New Yorkers are still willing to travel 45 minutes (from Time Square on the Q train) to Midwood, Brooklyn and then wait another 45 minutes in line for it. That's amore!

Tip #1

Arrive at 6pm to avoid lines (Di Fara closes at 4:30 and reopens for dinner at 6:30 / 7pm)

Tip #2

Come as a group of 3 to 4. That's the perfect size. Then order a square slice along with the Di Fara classic pie

Tip #3

Grab the red peppers with olive oil that are sitting on the corner – compliments it to "Perfezione!"
