OUR STORY... FROM BROOKLYN TO LAS VEGAS
Imagine pizza so incredibly delicious that New Yorkers and tourists-in-the-know happily stand in line for three hours to get a pie or even just a slice. What’s the secret to such devotion? Dom DeMarco’s mouthwatering, award-winning pies are carefully handcrafted using closely guarded recipes and quality imported ingredients.
So, who is this legendary pizza maker? Domenico DeMarco immigrated to New York from the Province of Caserta in Italy as a young man in 1959 hailing from a family of bakers and master pizziaolos. He worked as a farmer on Long Island and in 1964, opened Di Fara Pizza on Avenue J in Brooklyn, growing it into an iconic family business. For over 50 years, DeMarco and Di Fara Pizza have received lavish praise from neighborhood folks, celebrities, chowhounds, internationally renowned food critics, and infamous chefs. And, in a town where competition for the title “best pizza” is fierce, this landmark has often been named “#1 Pizzeria in New York” and “best Italian Restaurant” by prestigious publications including Zagat, New York magazine, and New York Daily News.
The pizza has been aptly described as “transcendent” and Dom DeMarco as a “genius” and a “pizza god.” DeMarco’s singular obsession – his driving passion – is creating the perfect pie. Importing the best ingredients from around the world, blending flavors and adjusting herbs until every element is just right.
How good is good? The Best! Maybe it’s the heavenly ooze of Italian buffalo mozzarella, and Grana Padano Parmigiano cheeses; or the fresh-cut basil imported from Israel sprinkled atop a pizza just pulled from the 700-degree oven; or the tantalizing sauce made with imported Italian tomatoes that redefines what sauce can be. Whatever that special something is, DeMarco’s pizza is perfection on a crust.
Now, after all these years, the cherished family recipes have been entrusted to a new generation of pizza worshippers in the west, personally trained at DeMarco’s side. Dom DeMarco’s Pizzeria & Bar in Las Vegas proudly serves the same pizza made famous at a quaint little place in Brooklyn. We make our pies just like Dom does – from scratch, with love and discipline.
Welcome and Buon Appetito!
