UberEats is now delivering pies from one of the world’s greatest pizzerias

Waiting is a big part of the Di Fara experience. After queueing up to place your order for a pie or a slice, you can either stand against the wall and watch sainted pizzaiolo Dom DeMarco snip the basil and pull the pizzas out of the oven with his bare hands, or you can amble around Midwood to further build up your appetite. During peak hours, it’s not uncommon to wait 90 minutes or more for your food at this 51-year-old Brooklyn institution. But now, the Di Fara ordering experience is about to change with the addition of delivery from noon to 5 p.m. via UberEats for anyone who lives in a zone stretching from Ditmas Park to Bay Ridge.

A Daily Meal writer who took the new service for a test drive on Friday got her pie in less than an hour, but all the slices were individually portioned in separate boxes. Maggie DeMarco explained that the pie was dropped off by a bicycle messenger, but plans are underway to have workers with cars deliver the pies whole. Di Fara also has somewhat spotty wifi, but UberEats will let you know if your order wasn’t accepted because of technical difficulties. Here's a glimpse at what makes Di Fara so special:

If you happen to take Di Fara delivery for a spin via UberEats, please let us know what you think.
