We were hungry, and were about to be joined by three hungry 20-somethings, so we turned to Rainbow Pizza. I went to pick up two pizzas (one vegetarian, the other their # 2 special), and learned there was a delay because of problems with their ovens and their computer system. The owner noticed me waiting a long time, and over... More

Rainbow Pizza has great Pizza. Lots of variety, large portions of toppings and a helpful staff. The Greek items are also extensive, tasty and well prepared. It has been a local favorite for years and is very busy. A great place for lunch time parties or an after work get together.

OK, I know the place is called Rainbow Pizza and the pizza is great, but it is really a Greek restaurant that just happens to serve pizza serves pizza. I am picky about my Greek food and this place is the closest I have found to good old taverna style Greek food anywhere around the peninsula. I drive here from... More

Have been eating the Greek food here for almost 20 years, food, service always fantastic. Who would think in a little strip mall that such a great restaurant exists. If you don't know about it or where it is you'll walk right by and never see it. Go in get seated in the back with the Greek mural and statuary.... More

Rainbow Pizza's owners really take a lot of pride in the selection, variety, preparation and serving of their dishes. As a result, this restaurant consistently delivers good food which is well-prepared. Their presentation of the food is very nice. You'll see larger and smaller groups there, and it's usualy pretty packed. It's a fun place with good food. Sometimes we've... More

Had a pizza with my brother in law at Rainbow. Great pie. We had sausage and mushrooms and I knew it would be good as soon as I smelled the air. The mushrooms were great, big pieces of sausage and it was delicious. Would recommend anyone looking for a deep dish to this place

I love, love, love this place. A friend of mine turned me on to this restaurant years ago and I've been coming back ever since. The food is always fresh & delicious. They have a great menu so we usually order a bunch of different items so everyone can try everythng and, if we're lucky, still have some yummy leftovers... More

This restaurant is located in a shopping center but is worth the time to find it for their really good food. Pizza, italian and greek foods are available for the visitor. We find that we have never been disappointed. Mostly locals but try it and you won't be disappointed.

I go to this place specifically for the gyro and tzatziki. Best tzatziki that I have tasted. When we have taken friends there, they concurred. Ths place is a far drive from our house, so it has become like a routine for us to eat here when we pick up or see someone off at the airport. They have so... More
