Waited 2 hours to get a whole pizza. It was tasty although the ol' man doused the pizza with a bit too much olive oil for my liking. Also, I don't think think it was worth the wait. Slices are apparently easier to obtain. I would opt for that if you don't like to wait a long while.
This definitely the tastiest pizza in the world! I am in love with how the crust and the toppings mixes and melts in my mouth. It feels like heaven. It was my first time to eat there last week, and I am definitely coming back for more. I am so happy I found my comfort food in NY. :D

I repeat: DEPLORABLE attitudes.
These people have absolutely no regard for their clientele. We experienced extremely dismissive attitudes from the employees (most particularly the daughter of the owner) and after waiting for 40 minutes, were told that they could not serve us because they were closing. We had arrived 15 minutes before this closing time and were not once informed that we would not be served.
A nice person in line ahead of us had ordered 3 slices and shared one with us. The pizza was good but I would never subject myself to such rude and unprofessional people like that again.
Absolutely loved the pizza he makes! Well worth the wait to watch the mechanically precisioned way the pizza is made. And the smells! A different yummy smell every other second. I would recommend ordering a while pie though cause it took almost 2 hours to get 4 slices. If you order a whole pie you will get it sooner. The very best pizza in Brooklyn!

After living the surrounding environs of this Brooklyn neighborhood for 28 years, I finally surrendered my tastebuds to the experience that is Di Fara. While it's certainly not the Hilton, and could be WAY cleaner, my friend and I enjoyed a slice apiece ($5 per; a bit exorbitant, but ultimately worth it) of freshly made pizza with a crisp crust to die for, delicious tangy cheese, San Marzano tomato sauce (sweet and tangy all at once), and fresh, aromatic basil (and I do love me some basil!) My reserve almost weakened to order another slice, but my guilty dieting conscience got the better of me, and I took my time with the one I had. Domenico's pizza is truly 'artisanal'; made lovingly by hand in the true, time-tested way by someone who's been doing this for a good long time. This certainly isn't 'Domino's' (ugh!), or any mass-market pizza; it's the real deal. Don't know if I'd be spending $25-30 for a pie, unless I was in a splurging mood, but you sure can't go wrong if you do. They're closed Mondays and Tuesdays, after all, Dom's been making these for 47 years; he has earned a little 'me' time. If in Brooklyn, check it out, but don't expect anything fancy. Just good, hot and fresh old-world taste. Brava, Dom! Mangia bene!
