Great spot for good eats and good conversation. Delicious thin crust pizza in a casual atmosphere with tons of character! The staff is friendly and accomodating. Fun night out with friends or with the family!

This is my girlfriend's family's favorite pizza place. Every member of the family has to come here and eat at least once, if not multiple times. They've been loyal patrons for decades, even after moving out of Stamford. Even though it's a thin pizza, and you choose which toppings to put on it, rather than select from pre-made selections (the... More

Still some of the best pizza in the area. It's different from what you'd get at a classic pizzeria, but it stands on its own, especially when accompanied by a pitcher of beer. It's just too bad they don't serve Schaeffer any more.

I used to love colony, but the quality has gone down hill. Now I prefer to go to Rikos which is better and has more on the menu. Recommend hot oil!

I've only had the pizza. It's different than regular pizza places in a very good way. Definitely worth a trip. Try the hot oil pizza.

The services is friendly. It has a local bar rustic feel and accompaniments so it's pretty much no frills. Unfortunately, for me, or for Colony pizza is that just a week prior to visiting I sampled what Coals in Port Chester had to offer. It is almost the same concept but just better. The positive here though is that they... More

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

This pizza is not for everyone. My mom loves traditional NY style pizza so she hates colony and rikos. if you are into thin crust pizza there's nothing better
