Colony Grill is about as Stamford as it gets! This place has been here forever, since the 1930's and is frequented by locals all around town. The pizza is not like typical pizza, but it is delicious. You might have to wait, but it is worth it. If you like spicy, go for the stinger pizza! Colony has been featured... More

I'm not a big pizza fan but loved their pizza pies. Thin crust with tonnes of toppings! Good value for money.

Iconic establishment that is a must if you are a true pizza lover. Thin crust pies with a hot oil topping that is excellent. You will not be disappointed.

This was the WORST pizza I've ever had! From the first bite I knew why we haven't been back here in almost 25 years. And we won't be back again!

This is not the typical NY slice. They've created a unique crispy crust and quality toppings for the perfect pizza and beer joint. I enjoyed a meatball with hot oil. The hot oil wasn't too hot or greasy which gave it a nice kick. Pitcher of PBR, 3 pies, and we were out under $50. Parking is a little tight.

Colony is what it is. Amazing thin crust pizza. Nothing fancy. It hasn't changed in decades (except for the prices and now they answer the phone on busy Friday nights).

What an unusual, different pizza place! All they serve is thin crust pizza with all sorts toppings! hot oil, peppers, sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, mushroom, onions, black olives, cherry peppers, anchovies, bacon,.... I think I got them all! each topping is $1.50 additional so it can get costly! but so delicious!
