Fodor's Review

Brooklyn legend Domenico De Marco has been hand-crafting pizzas with top-quality ingredients in this Midwood storefront for 50 years, and even the locals are willing to wait upward of an hour (and sometimes two) for pizza that's a contender for best in the greater New York area. You can order a slice ($5), but you're better off with a whole pie, since the pizza-maker waits until there are enough slice orders to complete a pie. The "classic" is topped with sausage, peppers, mushrooms, and onions ($33), but the "regular" ($29) lets you appreciate the pure goodness. The small, worn space has only a handful of tables (no table service), so don't expect anything fancy—just great pizza. For a shorter wait, arrive well before they open at noon, and note that they're closed between 4:30 and 6 pm. Di Fara recently extended its hours to include Tuesdays but it's uncertain whether this will be permanent so check before you head out.
