I am doing a research project on best pizza in the world and i chose this restaurant. It sounds good to me even though I have never been there! My research says that it got best #1 zagat rated NY pizza 8 years running! It does sound pretty pricey to me though.

I grew up in Brooklyn and have lived in rural southeast OH for nearly 35 years...DiFara's was always the best when I attended Midwood High School and EVERY time i visit NYC I make sure to go back to DiFara's...Dom is a one man show of skill and style. Until i moved to Ohio I really didn't realize that people would put "toppings" on pizza even though i had seen it listed....NO toppings are needed on this most special cheese pizza...The sandwiches are great too....but we always order a pie...which takes a while...and have a slice or 2 while we wait....STILL the BEST...can't wait to go back again.

When you walk in for the first time every looks like a typical pizza place. But--I watched the owner making the pizza with all fresh ingredients and grating the cheeses and using top oils and other products and I realized this wasn't the average place. When you then look around at the awards and commendations you realize the place and the product is very special.

I have traveled the world since discovering DiFara's in 1989 and none can compete. I now live 1000 miles away and still make a pilgrimage every chance I get for a "slice" on Avenue J. I don't know what Dom's secret recipe may be, but I do know that he is a Master. "Chic" it is not, but if you're in search of great pizza then DiFara's is the spot. It's a family run business with alot of heart. I will keep going back every chance I get!

Quality pizza is worth everything! It is great and unlike anything you've tasted - fresh, hot, and oh so good. Yes, the place isn't well kept. You don't go to a pizzeria for clean tables, you go for an excellent pizza. If you like hot, fresh pizza, it's worth the trek!

Yes. Try it. It's really that good and it's entertaining to watch this artist, this bright shining light from heaven, make your pie. You need to have a sense of humor about the wait though, otherwise you'll ruin the entire experience for yourself.

I have to say, after reading some of these reviews- I am appauled by what I am reading.......and quiet offended I might add ...Difaras is the best slice I have ever had- and that is not coming lightly from a person who eats pizza quiet frequently and traveled and still cant beat it- this is hands down the best pizza I've had.....Granted Dom is gettin older he occasionally burns the crust a bit somtimes but a little burn on the crust does not take away the taste of the three cheeses, fresh basil- delicious crust thats firm but still crispy and sweet tomato sauce!! Its amazing!!!! heaven!! the dirty old oven and smoke stained walls makes this a real NY tradition and Brooklyn landmark- if you want a fancy dinner where you need a reso and a sport jacket go elsewhere.......if you want really authentic pizza- come here.....maybe some people are just used to "pizzareia uno and dominos" thats wrote some other reviews..... the #1 rated pizza in the world is Pizzaria de Michelle in Naples Italy- if you can make it to Italy......Difaras is the best thing going "real world italian style"-
