Di Fara Pizza Restaurant Review

: If you're a pizza connoisseur, you're in the right place. Dominico DeMarco's priority is making amazing pizza---one-by-one, by hand, v-e-r-y slowly. The dough is made with imported Italian flour, he uses not one but three cheeses (buffalo mozzarella, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Grana Padana), and freshly-made sauce created from plum tomatoes and herbs. The heroes on the menu are noteworthy as well. Locals and pilgrims alike keep Di Fara busy day and night.

Very slow is no exaggeration

I just got back to my hotel after a failed attempt to try this pizza. I found it interesting to read another's review about burnt pizza since that is part of why I didn't eat there. Anyway, I went out of my way to go all the way into Brooklyn from the Bronx when I needed to be going to White Plains. After arriving, I waited for 15 minutes and was not acknowledged by the two workers. There are two things I cannot tolerate about restaurants and stores and that is a long wait to take an order and a long wait to pay. While I waited, I saw two burnt pizzas served to customers. One was so bad I couldn't believe they were actually serving it. The restaurant was small and the pizza was not cooked in a brick oven which I thought was a key feature of NY pizza. I left and settled for a deli sandwich next door.
 
Beware! Not worth the money

I'm a 45 year old first generation Italian male (I can speak Italian) and I love pizza. DiFara has seen the last of me! It's a disgrace when good Italian pizza goes bad. For the price of a regular pie - at the very least they should make it consistently round, fill the box and not burn the edges. Instead the box is bigger than the pie. I decided to give it another chance, so today I ordered a square. I was very disappointed. For $30 I received a square pizza with burnt edges on the whole pie. The only reason I still took the square pie was to get my wife's opinion. Needless to say she was not impressed.
