This hole-in-the-wall pizza joint has bragging rights to one of the best slices in the city, and even the country.  Nearly half a decade since he first opened the doors, owner Dom DeMarco is still behind the counter churning out handmade pizzas five days a week.  No wonder he’s so grumpy: He dresses every pie himself with freshly cut basil, San Marzano tomatoes,  Italian buffalo mozzarella and more.  We suggest going early to avoid the epic lines and ordering a slice to hold you over while you wait for your pie.  At $5 a slice, it ain’t cheap, but it’s worth it. Don’t Miss Dish: The Di Fara Special, square-cut pizza covered in tomato sauce and pepperoni; a white pie with artichokes
End With: Head across the street to Isaac’s Bakery for some Jewish sweets.
Drink This: This place is BYOB, so bring a bottle!
Price: $$
Occasion: Pizza pilgrimage, dining destination, casual bites.
