Great eats, if a bit out of the way, with Greek and Italian food. The pizza is the highlight, of course, with bready crusts and thick toppings; tbin crust is also delicious, or try calzone with your choice of two toppings to go with the wonderful crust and cheese/tomato sauce filling. The menu is about 2 ft. by 3 ft.... More

I bought a takeaway Pizza for my wife and son, that cost over $50. They were big, but consisted of a great deal of dough. OK if you want to become obese. The topping was average. I would have preferred smaller portions, and greater flavour.

I booked tables for a party of 20. Steve, the owner helped me put the menu together , and we did end up with 23 people. The food was outstanding ! And we actually had food left --- enough to feed another 4 or 5 people. Rainbow Pizza was recommended to me for a group gathering, and we couldn't have... More

This place has American, Italian, Greek, and Middle Eastern; they're all delicious. The menu is gigantic, you could spend an afternoon just reading. I am told by a close friend that the owner makes frequent trips to Greece and every time he comes back the menu gets bigger.

This is the place to go when your hungry. They also have one of the largest menus I've ever seen. Menu has food for everyone. Pizza and Greek are the main things but burgers are also on menu. What ever you order your going to be full when you leave. Quality is also very good.
