on the wall, and relax for a while. Colony is a historic haven, very simple pizzas and a full bar, sports TVs in one room, and music in another. The wall behind the bar is covered with photos of veterans from many wars, reminding you that they were young once, and here, and that all will be well. So order... More

Colony Grill sounds like a bar but, it's a pizza joint. Each individual sized pizza is enough for one hungry person or two lite eaters. We had a sausage pizza and a hot oil pizza. The pies don't look great but they do taste good. Not the best I've had but perfectly acceptable in this area. Bring cash with you... More

Colony pizza is thin crust and very light on sauce. We had a plain cheese, bacon, and sausage/onion/mushroom pies... All were great. If you like thin crust NY style pizza, go.

We love Colony. They do pizza. The do pizza right. The Stamford location is an old neighborhood bar showing sports on TV. Sit at the bar or in a booth. The only thing they serve is pizza, but it's the thin crust and short-list of toppings. Service is quick and the pizza is my favorite in town. Be warned, it's... More

We stopped here because their Hot Oil pizza was on CT's 50 dishes to try before you die list..... we can see why! Delish! Great place to relax, watch a game and enjoy a beer and pizza.

Pizza is very subjective but I have become a convert to Colony Grill's very thin pizza. Pizza is the only food served in this Stamford landmark. The staff is always friendly and the service is attentive. Good choice of draft beers. Actually a very family friendly place. I find excuses to go to Stamford just to eat at Colony.

Simple restaurant, but my favorite Hot Oil Pizza in town. I always order the same and keep going back.

I visited connecticut to meet my friends. They took me here for lunch. The pizzas are way too oily. The taste, i wouldn't say they are the best pizzas around.

Don't blink or you'll miss the menu! Colony Grille only serves pizza, but they do it wonderfully! I had heard about the "famous hot oil pizza" and was anxious to try but I have not had pizza in quite a long while because of a gluten sensitivity. Before this I have not had a gluten-free pizza crust worth eating. This... More
