The weather continues to get better and better, which means more outdoor picnics and spontaneous dates with friends. A common question that comes up is, “where should we eat?” Well, let me give you some ideas from a pizza lover like me. Here are the top three pizza spots in Fairfield that I crave 24/7.
1. Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana
Frank Pepe Pizzeria has been a weekly restaurant for my friends and me. This is the place to go when you want a large, hot, coal-fired pizza. A pretty random and fun part about this restaurant is the way they cut their “pies.” All of the pies are given in more of a rectangular shape than a circular shape like most restaurants. This diner serves many different types of pizzas, my favorites being Frank Pepe’s Original Tomato Pie, Margherita and Amanti Della Carne.
Pepe’s makes sure there is enough food going around for the whole group to enjoy. I will never leave on an empty stomach, that’s for sure. I am usually too stuffed to even leave the restaurant! Stop by Frank Pepe’s after a long hard day of classes and homework. It is a quick seven minutes away from campus. How much closer can they be!
2. Colony Grill
Colony Grill is one of the most popular restaurants in Fairfield, CT, especially in the Stag community. It is also one of my top three pizza joints. All the hype for Colony is definitely worth it. It is a more Connecticut-style pizza; they are a lot smaller and thinner than most, which I enjoy because I get full pretty quickly. I was skeptical at first because many people were talking about having dinner here nearly every night, but I have never been. When I went to try the food at Colony Grill, I got an Irish-Italian pizza bar feel. It felt very welcoming, and you can smell the pizza right away.
It’s also super easy to order your meal at Colony. The menu basically consists of a plain cheese pizza with the option of adding extra toppings, which I found very interesting. During the times I have eaten at Colony, I ordered one with meatballs and then a hot-oiled pizza. Both tasted amazing and left me wanting more. What’s also special about this eatery is that most customers can finish their personalized pizza during one sitting due to their size.
I also found it amazing that Colony Grill is so affordable. I was worried at first because it looks like it would be an expensive restaurant to eat at, but I was thankfully surprised by their good prices. I will definitely continue going to Colony and enjoy their pizza with my friends at the beach!
3. Pizzeria Molto
First off, Molto is a very classic fancy indoor and outdoor Italian restaurant. The menu is pretty large, but as a pizza lover, their pies are always on my mind. I usually order the Hot Oil Pizza or the Pesto Pizza. While they are both very different from one another, they equally “hit the spot.” Another great meal on the menu is the Penne Alla Vodka. It is very creamy and filling.
Those are my top three favorite meals at Molto. Not only does the restaurant have great food and meal options, but their outdooring seating is quite beautiful too!
Make sure to try out these tasty restaurant spots with some friends after a busy day of work; you won’t regret it! It’s always nice to try something new, and maybe it could be your favorite too.
