We finally made it to Di Fara. We’ve been wanting to go for a while, but have always feared the long lines. So on Sunday we decided to go and wait there before they even opened. After more than an hour ride in the subway we got to Avenue J on the Q line and stood in line at Di Fara.
Domenico DeMarco, a Neapolitan immigrant, opened this pizza joint in 1964 and has continued to make his pizza, single-handedly ever since then. He is 75 years old now and still going strong.
After waiting for around half an hour for our pie to be ready, we were rewarded with a delicious pizza with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, sprinkled with fresh basil and olive oil. It was really good. One of my favorite pizzas in the city.
