Located on Summer Street, Ridgeway Pizza has been a takeout staple for families and businesses alike for years. Ridgeway holds a special place in our hearts as well, having delivered to us many times at Westhill High School back when we had the run of the place in 2004, which is no small feat considering how well the gestapo had that building buttoned up back then.
Establishment. Ridgeway doesn't exactly have a low lit dining room with free bread and checkered tablecloths. In fact, it scores pretty low against our establishment criteria (except for the parking, which is plentiful and fabulously located, and the oven, which is 11 feet tall, awesome, and spins). Rather than harp on too many of the irrelevant negatives, lets get to what keeps Stamford's pizza-adoring public coming back for more.
Pizza. Ridgeway Pizza is delicious. If you're a fan of thin crust pizza, you'll be estatic with Ridgeway's pie. The crust is thin but full of flavor, the cheese is wonderful, but the sauce is just good to very good. Because it's so thin, those with overly discriminating tastes might need a few more slices than the average bear, but is that really a bad thing? It is if you like hot pizza, as Ridgeway really has that surface area to volume ratio thing going against it and cools faster than pets.com's popularity. Right out of the oven, Ridgeway's pizza is a force to be reckoned with. Right out of the box, it loses something and becomes merely very, very good.
The bottom line. Thin crust diehards, look no further, for Ridgeway is king and you are its lowly peasant. But seriously, it's pretty good.
