Nice experience at Di Fara's

Hi all, just thought I would share the nice experience at Di Fara's this weekend while visiting from Toronto. I have been wanting to go this place for a few years and well the last time (and my first) I was in New York I was only able to con my boyfriend into accompanying me to Grimaldi's. We were both visitors to the city then. Two years later, this past weekend, it was agreed between the two of us that we would trek out to Di Fara's as it was 1) my birthday and 2) so I could finally stop ranting and whining on about the place (his words, not mine) :) Got there on sunday around 1pm and waited roughly 25 minutes for a pepperoni pie. It WAS delish. Milky, buttery cheese, fresh tomato sauce and a crispy, toasty crust, it was all wonderful and worth waiting for. Monday was my last day in New York and I'd thought I trek out again for a cheese slice before I went back to the great white north. It was terrific and I hope next time to have a square slice. Obviously, these visits will be slightly easier now that my boyfriend has just recently moved to the city! On another note, I was able to chat a little bit with Dom both days, he's a really lovely guy, like watching his one man show!
