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.

What to order? Oh my gosh....soooo many selections of delicious pizza AND Greek food! Difficult to choose. Wait staff are all very helpful. Great parking in the mini mall. Before you finish your meal....you will be making plans to return! Enjoy!

I've grabbed take-out from Rainbow Pizza many many times. From greek to pizza to pasta dishes. They are all excellent and tremendous value. The proportions are MASSIVE. But, i would recommend you call ahead for take-out.....they get real busy in the evening. This last week I stopped and picked up an order of their Chicken Fettucini w/ Brocolli, single serving....

Stopped and ate on way to SFO. Prices were good (for Cali) and food was decent. Tons of stuff on menu. A bit noisy inside

Rainbow is one of our San Mateo favorites. Besides numerous pizza combs, Rainbow has a huge menu of Greek, Italian and America dishes. Very noisy and crowded most of the time but worth the effort. Pizza is thick crust with numerous toppings to select, so if you only like thin crust this is not your place. A small individual pizza,... More

Great place that our cousin took us to. The onion rings and our meat lover's pizza was delicious. It made two teenagers very happy! I'd definitely come back again.

All the staff are very friendly, portions are good for a full take-home meal. My favorites are the pizzas (any of them) and the gyro (love it!). Gets a little loud and busy on weekends and sometimes the staff seems a little overwhelmed but never to the point where they are short with you. The place has been around forever... More
