“A Stamford Icon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Very good pies. A little overrated, but very good.

I'd come here more often if there wasn't construction going on in the area. Because of that, it takes 30 minutes to get there when it should only take 10 or 15. You should have good parallel parking skills if the small back lot is full and you end up having to park on the street.

I like the hot oil and sausage pie. Sorry, no slices here! The pizzas are usually better eaten fresh out the oven, so if you can eat here, go for it.

“go early”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

go early to avoid the wait. awesome thin crust pizza, order one for each person and then one or two to take home. very reasonable. great thin crust pies so you can eat a lot of pizza! Love the "William Buckley" - a hot oil pie with zingers!

“Casual and delicious, just like we remembered it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We visited The Colony at about 6 p.m. on the Saturday following Thanksgiving and lucked into a tabled in the dining room right away - lucky because we were anticipating a certain wait. A pizza with pepperoni, hot oil, and stingers and we were good to go. Service was friendly and swift and the pizza was as good as we recalled from several years ago when a local took us there before. Worth the trip. It would be fine to take kids in the dining room, but there is not really a lot of waiting room space so in colder months, you would want to go early so you are not stuck outside.

“Exception food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We eat here whenever were in Stamford, Food and service is wonderful. Always and I mean always busy. Pizza and beer sounds okay but it's so much more than that, the Sausage and hot oil pizza is out of this world. I strongly recommend this place as just reading a review does it no justice at all. As a couple or with family and friends it's a great place to eat and have fun!!
