Great local place

Although they don't deliver, the thin crust pizza here brings people from all over the area. They have classic toppings and a full bar. Try pepperoni and hot oil, or bacon and onion pizza. No frills, just good pizza and beer.

We frequent Colony often and have been to the original (Stamford), Fairfield, and Milford locations. We love the thin crust pizza. The toppings are great, as well. We often get hot oil/sausage on one pie and mushroom on the other. The mushrooms are canned; I love it, but know it's not for everyone. Up until recently, you couldn't get salad... More

Colony Pizza is a local institution, with pizza as almost the only menu item. The hot oil they pour (or rather drizzle) on top of the pizza makes most patrons swoon. Me, it leaves me a bit flat--not big on greasy pizza and think, flat crust. I guess it's an acquired taste. The no-frills environment and the crowds that patronize... More

Colony has a wide variety of pizzas and beers, which makes for a great combo. The pizzas are thin crust and can be mixed and matched, super spicey or not and with or without hot oil. Great place for great pizza and drink at a very reasonable price.

Thought the pizza would be the best. Even their famed hot oil pizza was not up to best category levels. But it's a very casual place with nice staff and gets busy. They do have parking. Good beer but not a place for a date unless she's into sports, which might be on the screen when you arrive.

Simply best pizza in town! The hot oil is awsome and stingers are to die for. No really some of them could kill you!
