Okay, so after lurking here and on the Manhattan board for several weeks, I have gleaned the following information about Di Fara:
It plainly has its local following with people who think it is the best, while others think it is overhyped and not worth the exhaustively long lines.
The best time to go is on a weekday mid-afternoon.
The square pizza is the best pizza to order (and I'll be ordering mine plain cheese).
Be prepared to wait an hour (?) after sitting down for your pizza.
BYOB (does anyone do this?).
It closes for a period between lunch and dinner.
Does this sound about right? Thanks to the Hounds for all the help!!!
