I visit the Colony at least weekly. The original location on Stamford opened in 1935, and while they have new locations in Fairfield, Norwalk, and Milford, I prefer the original location. They serve one thing....several varieties of their award winning thin crust pizza. A favorite is sausage with hot oil. The Colony consistently wins "Connecticut's Best Pizza" awards and is... More

For anyone that thinks you can walk into this place and not finish your pie, be prepared.... Best think crust pizza outside of a greasy spoon anywhere in America. If you've never had Colony go gets some. If you have had Colony, why the hell are you reading this - go get some more!!!

Being from the Chicago area, we are pizza snobs. Deep dish is our favorite. Pizza on the east coast is a whole different animal. We asked several locals where to get the best pizza in Stamford, and everyone said Colony is the place to go. We went and were skeptical about the very thin crusted pizza they serve. First of...

Personally the pizza is a bit oily for my taste but that doens't stop me from being able to eat a whole pie in one sitting. Pizza is one size and if you're calling your order in don't be surprised if the phone is busy. After awhile the phone is taken off the hook due to all the take out... More

My wife and I went to Colony on a Saturday night and was seated promptly. The service was outstanding and the Hot Oil Pizza and Sausage Pizza were very good. Overall a good place for pizza if you are in Stamford. Regarding the State of Connecticut - I think Pepe's is the best. That's my personal opinion.
