We ordered the calamari, skewer grilled shrimp with rice pilaf n pizza with Greek salad. Everything was good. My kids who are picky eaters loved it. I thought the food was a little pricy at first,but after tasting the food I thought the price was very reasonable.

Although Rainbow Pizza has a very extensive menu, their gyros will always be my favorite. That have great Greek and Italian dishes. And, oh yea…pizza. Lots of pizza.

Rainbow Pizza makes pizza the old fashioned way. Real Ingredients which taste good by themselves, combined with know-how to produce flavorful, rich pizza. You can order many types, but the Greek Pizza is a knockout!

Greek food, greek sized servings. Everything is big, including the physical size of the menu, which is probably 2 feet x 2 feet when opened. Portion sizes typify why Americans top the global scales. The food is good, service is usually good (they do get busy), staff are always nice. My wife and I like their gyros. Older child likes... More

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
