Figured I would add another review of Difara's just to keep the good feelings going. I went yesterday for the first time, around 8:00 (Thursday night). There were two orders in front of ours so we waited for a good hour until our pie was complete. As a result, I would suggest if anyone is really hungry, to eat a little something before hand to hold you over. The place is grimy and old school, but all part of its character no doubt.
I'm not "expert" on pizza, but I've lived in New York all of my life and what they are serving up at Difara's is unlike any other. The fresh basil is the key ingredient in my opinion, and the cheese is so fresh and so real, I may never again be able to eat the overprocessed, orange-oiled slice most of us have become accustomed to. My friend and I shared a whole pie, half sausage all extra cheese. Two guidos (no offense, I'm Italian so I can say this) were hanging out waiting for their order and they started a bet on whether my friend and I, both average sized gals, could finish the pie. We came close with one and a half slices left over. We figured it was worth it to hold off and have some Difara's leftovers as a treat for today.
