    The pizza here is unique...the crust is flatbread-ish an the sauce has a touch of sweetness...awesome with a beer. If u have the stones like me u'll snag the hot oil n stingers as a selection 🔥😈🔥

    It's hard to go wrong with any of the pizza toppings, just make sure to include Hot Oil as one. I loved the Pepperoni, Sausage, Peppers, and Onions too. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    I reccomend the delicious sausage, peppers & onion pie. It's thin thin, thin crust, oily and every bite is packed with flavor. I'd say its no frills bar pizza that surprises you with it's tasty punch.

    Sausage is a must. Bacon & Onion is really good too. No matter what, get hot oil. Stingers are not for the weak but very tasty.

    The best pizzas to get here are the hot oil or plain cheese. Don't be fooled, their regular toppings are pretty plain and detract from the grease to cheese ratio. Bring friends, they take awhile.

    The specialty, a Hot Oil pizza, is a local legend and has spawned a few franchised locations elsewhere in CT. The ambiance and experience makes seeking out this hole-in-the-wall original worthwhile.

    Sausage is made locally and is delicious with green peppers or cherry peppers if you like the heat. Great for dine-in or take-out!

    The hot oil pizza is the real deal. The sausage was excellent along with the pepperoni & meatball. Definitely try the "stinger".
  • Ben K.
    Exemplary version of the bar pizza. Order a pepperoni or sausage pie and add hot oil.

    If you don't like Colony, I don't like you. Simple as that. The hot oil is a MUST. (I go with that, cherry peppers and sausage)

    Always save at least 2 pieces for Breakfast. Cold Colony is the only thing better than hot Colony. If you eat your whole pie. Bring a Friend who doesn't eat a lot and take theirs home.

    The stingers are serranos. The source for the heat in the Hot Oil. Do Not get both unless you can handle extreme heat. Fire in your Wire.
