If we lived nearby, we would come here often

We ordered the #2 pizza and a large Greek salad. It was a lot of food for the 2 of us and we brought the pizza back with us and still had leftovers. If you like meat, get this pizza. The Greek salad was refreshing. If we lived nearby, we would come often and try the different pizzas. Nice... read more

I have never had bad food at this place. Everything ..... and they have a lot on their menu .... has always been good. Definitely lots of flavor. Greek salad is intensive.

Rainbow Pizza gets 5-stars for quality and diversity. It's one of the few places where everyone in the family is satisfied. Delish!

We tried this restaurant for the first time Monday October 12 for lunch. The menu overwhelmed, we finally decided on two salads. One shrimp caesar and one Island Greek salad with shaved meat. My husbands salad was loaded with shrimp, the dressing a greek version of caesar was not as strong as he prefers, however he definitely enjoyed it. Mine... More

We like this restaurant and go here frequently. They have lots to choose from. There are private booths and a big room with tables. It is in a shopping center that has a Starbucks, Safeway and CVS.

My daughter and I were vacationing in California and driving from San Francisco to Santa Cruz. We stopped in San Mateo for lunch and tried Rainbow Pizza since they had a gluten free pizza crust. The menu was extensive, but we both ordered pizza. The service was great, and our waiter even provided directions.
