We had gone to Rainbow pizza a couple of years ago and really enjoyed the thick crust pizza with huge amounts of toppings. This time we again were impressed with the pizza. An individual and a small pizza provided leftovers for the four of us for lunch the next day. In addition to pizza the menu has a huge variety... More

I enjoy this place, the service is consistent and as noted the food delish. My only reservation is the noise that a full house brings.

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.
