    I order a pepperoni & basil pie and it was absolutely phenomenal! Definitely eat a hot slice before you walk away, if you don't you're doing yourself and the pizza a disservice
  • James K.
    Recommendation: Get there before it opens as it gets packed quick. We preferred the round pie. Sauce is amazing! 🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕

    Di Fara original and plain - spot on.

    Be prepared to wait, but honestly one of the best experiences in NYC.

    Authentic square slice is heaven. Expect to wait +1hr, worth it - the sauce is delicious. Friendly service. Ask for some slices to eat and BYOB while you wait for your pie. Top 3 pizza in all NYC.

    Don't go hungry, expect to wait 1-2 hours for a pie. Get the square pie. Best sauce!

    This is the best NY pizza there is. Prepare to wait longer than you're quoted but it is 100% worth it. Highly recommend a square slice with soppressata, even if you're already getting a regular pie.

    FABULOUS. Lines & parking are a major hassle.

    NY native and 31 years living, hands down the best pizza I've ever had. Wait the 90 minutes, get a pie with basil and garlic, and you'll quickly realize why they are the Peter Lugers of pizza.

    Good, not mind-blowing. Not worth waiting two hours. Be careful of the time estimate when you ask how long it'll take; it'll be off by 4-6x. Go for the square before the round, and don't order a pie.

    Best pizza in America. Don't ask for anything special, just get a margherita or a square slice.

    Delicious pizza with an especially crisp crust and Dom's authenticity. Is it worth the trip just for a slice? Maybe not. If you're 15 minutes away must you go? Yes.

    So the pizza is excellent, but is it worth the wait and price, I would say no. If you got $40 and time to kill go for it.

    You’re bound to wait at least an hour before getting your pie at this legendary Brooklyn favorite--but don’t worry, a frosty glass of BYO Riesling will be your reward…along with incredible pizza. Read more

    Delicious famous pizza. At this spot it's all about the sauce, since the crust gets quite soggy.
  • Christopher V.
    The sauce was literally one of the best I've ever tasted.

    If you can handle the wait (and maybe the trip), the margherita slice is the best pizza slice in NY, possibly the world. You will spend $5 and regret nothing. I have never had anything remotely close.

    Authentic high quality pizza. Hard to get your order in and often extremely busy. It's either a delightful pizza or too frustrating a wait.

    This is an experience like no other. I don't think you're going to get a pizza like this one in any other place. Watching Domenico prepare them with love and care justifies the usual long wait.

    Whatever you do here, go for the Square and watch the cheese literally (and sensually) still bubbling at the surface. The wait may be long, for obvious reasons, but the long awaited bite is worth it!

    The above average slice isn't worth the waiting time, but it's an institution that merits at least a visit.

    This was bad... I wish it lived up to the hype. I'm actually shocked how bad this was. Too salty, ingredients are poor quality. It was maybe good long time ago

    As silly as it sounds, by a square slice or three to share while you wait for your pizza. It will prime your appetite for a spectacular pie.

    I stopped by on Sat around 7pm and got my square slice right away. I admire the man how he make them, but it definitely was not the best pizza I had. It was thin and crunchy but the rest was mediocre.

    Order at Di Fara and walk around the corner to sibling Italian comfort food restaurant MD Kitchen. Because what makes a 2 hour wait for bread, sauce, and cheese better? Shrimp parmigiana heroes.

    Quaint. cute seeing the old man work solo. Painstakingly slow. His son helps by cutting the basil. Otherwise there's no one else working meaning 1-2 hour wait for a pie, which can be soggy or burnt

    The pizza here is some of the best if not the best I've ever had. Slices take a while and press are pricey at $30. Fresh basil on top and the flavors are out of this world.
