I've probably had thousands of slices over the years. Mostly all good. I still haven't had one better than the square from Di fara.

They open at noon and the line is already formed by 11.30. Some of the best pizza in NY....thin crust, high quality everything. Fresh basil cut with scissors over the top of a done pizza and drizzles of olive oil... There is NO SKIMPING on the ingredients. I recommend all choices, but especially the porcini mushrooms with some garlic. It... More

The old man can make a mean pizza. It's not cheap, the wait is long and the restaurant is the epitome of 'hole in the wall' but the pizza is supreme.

I found this place by luck years ago. I watched a master craft the pie by hand, grate the cheeses by hand add the perfect amount of sauce and crumble fresh herbs. All beneath a photo of him when he was a much younger man. It was so good I now travel almost 3 hours from Sussex nj 2 or... More

It not all it worth. The hype is more than you could image. The oil on the pizza makes the pizza soft and hard to eat. I got sick from pizza actually. The service is slow and they gave our pizza to someone else. The table are not clean and chairs old they do not take time the time to... More

While New York has great pizza all around, Di Fara's stands out even among the crowd, which is a huge feat in itself. From the freshness of the ingredients to the overall amazing flavor profiles (seriously, the vegetarian cheese and basil pizza is all you need . . . and this is coming from a meat lover!), Di Fara's delivers...

I went way out of my way, my partner and I, to take several subway/train rides to find this place--all due to the intense hype in the media. First off, let me say, for what they charge for a slice($5) of pizza--even more for a whole pie($29-up), they need to invest in a new building that can seat enough people... More

Is it the best? Is it not the best? Who am I to say? All these reviewers who claim it's not worth the hype or I expected more, etc. are going about it in the wrong way to begin with. The only expectation you should have going into Di Fara is that you will probably have to wait a while.... More
