“New updated "old" restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

We grew up going to the "old" Rainbow restaurant and were we surprised to see the renovated Rainbow. What a difference, and still very welcoming with great staff and great food. They specialize in pizzas, but have daily specials, really, really good mac and cheese (that you design yourself) and delicious pasta dishes. Prices are reasonable, too. Can't go wrong. The new owner is well known in the area and is doing a fine job of bringing the "old" Rainbow back to life.

“Good food good price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We were really impressed with the new Rainbow. The menu is limited but what is offered is done right. The pizza is great (thin) but the thick pizza is not my favorite. The restaurant is starting a sunday brunch, the same one offered for Easter. I was impressed with the menu and the value. Becoming a regular there.

“The Rainbow is Back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

The Rainbow restaurant is back in business featuring excellent wood fired pizza. Our group of 8 sat at the new bar and was given excellent service by Emmanuel. The menu is somewhat limited, but offers a good variety. Pizza is the featured dish and is excellent. The chicken parmesan is a huge dish with salad and pasta included. The meatball appetizer is very good. They just added spaghetti and meatballs with 3 large homemade meatballs and this an excellent value. There are several excellent beers on tap.The staff is very friendly and the manager stopped by to inquire about our meal. This restaurant on first street is worth the visit.

“Our first two reviews were posted to wrong Restaurant ... here they are”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

New owners and a complete renovation.... Here are our first two reviews

1. Heard this restaurant was recently reopened and very good so we thought we would give it a try. The wood fired pizza was probably the best I ever had. The wood fired wings were also very good. Service was excellent and remodeled interior was very nice with open bar to dining area and wood stove in bar section. Can't wait to go back.
2. It's only been open for a month or so with the new owners, but we've now eaten there four times because it's so good. This is a neighborhood, comfortable restaurant in the center of Pittsfield, one block off the main street with good parking (and if their lot is full there's a big city lot about a half block away). We've tried their pasta, the pizza, and steak and mussels with never a disappointment. The service is friendly and excellent and the prices are reasonable. The menu is a bit limited, but that keeps food fresh and well prepared. All in all, a good choice.
