A Stamford Classic.

Great neighborhood pizza place known for its ultra thin crust and hot oil pizzas. Delicious. Been going there for 50 years. No frills. Busy bar. Paper plates, but a great thin crust if that's how you like your pie.

The pizza is out of this world, but the atmosphere is what makes this place great. Whether hanging out at the bar or dining at a table, the staff is the friendliest. They're like family. The pizza is absolutely delicious. Try a regular pie with salad on top - you'll be hooked.

Being born and raised in Stamford, we all know and love the Colony. It's an institution. Having said that, after many a softball game, I was getting tired of it. I haven't been there in years, but have gone up to their newer outlet in Fairfield. Was recently there to celebrate a birthday of a dear friend. It was a... More

If you are from CT you know about the age old argument: Colony or Pepe's....well, for me its Colony all the way. The Fairfield location is quite large but don't be surprised if you have to wait for a table. Yes, they do take out. The Stamford location is really old - the bar is referred t as "Jimmy &... More

The good: the pizza is fantastic. Though I know it's not a traditional pie, I happen to love it. There's a reason this is a staple of Stamford, and it's because the pizza is consistently great every time you go there. The location leaves a bit to be desired. It is on a not-so-great street, and inside is awfully dated.... More

Best thin crust pizza. I love the sausage and hot oil! If any left, I take home for breakfast the next day! Also good for a midnight snack!

We went here after hearing how great the pizza was. I wasn't impressed. The crust was chewy. The best one was the hot oil. I've definitely had better pizza in Stamford.

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!
