For pizza so mouth-watering it can compete with even the best of New York or Chicago, try Stamford’s own version at Colony Grill. The local Irish-run tavern is a great go-to spot to casually catch up with old friends, drink a few beers, catch a game and chow down at the town’s long-established pizza place. There should however, be a sign at the door that reads, “Thin-crust Lovers Only,” because that’s the only way they make ‘em and that’s the only version regulars will eat. With a short menu and paper plates, Colony embodies the ‘plain and simple’ approach to food, but this minimalism has worked for the always-crowded restaurant for years.

Popular favorites include sausage pizza and hot oil pizza if you like a little kick to your pie. Of course you can’t go wrong with the classic cheese, which isn’t overly cheesy or saucy, and the crust always has just the right crunch. A family of four can eat three pies, with a few coveted leftover slices, but if you’re getting take-out, know that a 45-minute wait is typical – and worth it – for Colony. If I could only get my hands on the recipe…

By far a staple in Stamford’s history. Great pizza, try the hot oil! Very low key atmosphere, limited menu, only pizza and drinks. Expect to be there at least 40 minutes as they are busy all of the time. At times they take the phone off the hook to catch up. But none of this is a deterrent when you can get pizza this good.

My family had been eating pizza at The Colony ever since they started making pizzas ~ 60 years ago. Three generations of our family regard their cheese pizza as our hands-down favorite of any pizza we’ve had anywhere else in the country/world. While most of us have moved away, any visit back to CT always includes a stop at The Colony for their legendary pizza.

BTW, the pizza at their new Fairfield restaurant is just as good as it is in Stamford.
