Colony Grill

172 Myrtle Avenue, Stamford, CT - (203) 359-2184
Pizza at the Colony Grill is ultra thin-crusted and it is brittle. Regardless of the ingredients on top, each slice can be lifted by its broad end from the circumference of the pie and nothing will droop. There is real character to this crust, and at the outermost edge, a luscious crunch unlike any other pizza you will eat.

"Pizza at the Colony Grill is unique. It is thin-crusted, thinner even than the Neapolitan-style pizzerias of New Haven; and it is brittle. Regardless of the ingredients on top, each triangular slice can be lifted by its broad end from the circumference of the pie and ..."   [Read More]

"What an out of the way find; but very easy to locate. The pizza is like none I have ever tasted, and I have been eating pizza since 1958. You cannot compare the style of this type of pizza to the New Haven apizza. The crust is thin, but somehow the cheese is ..."   [Read More]

"I recently had a hot oil and sausage pie. I must second all the positive reviews. This is great pizza. I like ‘em with a crispy crust, and theirs is very much so. I was amazed that the topping didn’t weaken it. This being my first visit, when I ordered, I asked ..."   [Read More]

"After an offhanded recommendation by a casual friend, my girlfriend and I decided to give this place a shot one Friday night. The atmosphere is nothing to brag about but this well-worn neighborhood joint makes some of the best pizza on the "Gold Coast". The crust ..."   [Read More]

"I would avoid this place. The only flavor that this pie had was from the grease. The saugage lacked any flavor along with the sause being very bland as well. I am not trying to knock the place, we actually had good service and shared some laughs with the regulars. But ..."   [Read More]

Here is a Hot Oil Pizza with huge discs of pepperoni. (That single green pepper is what marks those pies anointed with hot oil.) Yes, it is indeed oily; but the crust remains remarkably stiff. No spillage or slippage when you lift slices from this tray!

Sausage for the sausage pizza is made on Myrtle Avenue. It is delicious. Most customers eat directly off the tray on which the pizza arrives, making the little paper plates supplied with each pizza superfluous.

Here is a close view of the underside of the crust circumference on a Hot Oil Pizza. It is ridiculously luscious, rich and crisp ... and impossible to stop eating.

At the end of a meal, the pizzas will be gone, and there will be a large pile of oil-sopped used napkins in the middle of the table.

The walls of the Colony Grill are covered with pictures of friends and neighbors from the last half-century, as well as statuettes of leprechauns, and police patches from local and faraway departments. Our kind of place!

From the outside, the Colony Grill looks just like any neighborhood tavern. It is indeed a place locals come to imbibe at the bar under a TV set; but it is also a significant pizza destination.
