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.

If your either of the above this is the place for you. It usually takes a while to get your meal (usually very busy), but well worth the wait.

Rainbow Pizza is really a Greek diner with much more that Pizzas to choose from. The plates are enormous, the salads fresh and the flavours quite distinctive. Service is very friendly and attentive.

Let's start with the kitchen area, it's filthy. You can see it through the front to area. The,tables are sticky and the restaurant smells. I've eaten here twice and my stomach as regretted both times. To put it kindly, if you're looking for a stomach cleanse, this is the place.

My husband likes the pizza and my favorite is moussaka. I've eaten other dishes too and all yummy but I always go back to my favorite. One slice of pizza is a meal... More

In the San Mateo area, I cannot think of a place that serves a more consistent outstanding pizza then Rainbow's pizza. Be prepared to take some home as it is difficult for two people to even eat a medium. A large pizza can easily feed four adults. The toppings are of quality and the atmosphere takes you back into the... More

We live in the neighborhood and have enjoyed Rainbow for more than 20 years. If you look at their tiny kitchen you'll be amazed by the large number of dishes on their menu. My family does have several favorites, including the Calamari Onassis and spaghetti with meatballs, but we have tried much of the menu with satisfaction. We had a... More
