The city temporarily shuttered legendary Brooklyn pizzeria Di Fara Tuesday for public health hazards including a “mice infestation,” according to the city Health Department.

It is important to note that the article goes on to state the following:

The Midwood joint — which routinely tops lists for the city’s best pies and whose devotees often form a line around the block — scored a stomach-churning 46 violation points on its health inspection Tuesday, and the city ordered owner-pizzaiolo Dom DeMarco to temporarily hang up his paddle.

Health inspectors found three “critical” violations, including “evidence of mice or live mice present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas,” according to Health Department records.

This isn’t the first time the legendary restaurant has been shut down over mice, the report stated, noting the city forced the restaurant to close in October 2016 for mice and “filth flies, and again in 2011 when mice droppings were found “throughout the kitchen.”

An automated message played when the restaurant was called Thursday, acknowledging the joint was closed but not providing a reason.

“We will not be open on Thursday, April 12, and we will not be open on Friday, April 13,” the message said.“If you’re looking to book a private party, we still book private parties, and we’re receiving a lot of messages, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.”
