Amazing if you have the few extra dollars!

Pizza Library is without a doubt the most delicious pizza I've ever tried, and I've eaten a lot of pizza! So much variety in their toppings and the amount of toppings is also very generous as well as the cooking itself being very well done. Considering the size of the pizza the price and waiting... read more

We had 3 pizzas, none of which had many toppings. Our seafood pizza had 3 clams on it...? Overall, toppings were sparse and the pizzas were lacking in flavour (especially the pumpkin vege option). Nowhere near as good as the last time we were here (which was in fairness a while back now).

Loved both the variety of pizzas on the menu and the quality. Ambience was fantastic as well. A memorable experience.

We had a pizza and a garlic bread. The bases were like damp cardboard and the toppings meagre. Will not be ordering from here again.

Really lovely service. The decor is quirky, cool and up there with the best I've seen. Really love the interesting flavour combinations on offer, but disappointing in flavour. I'm sorry guys, I had really high expectations walking in and the flavour failed to deliver. There is a really long list of options - maybe culling the menu and really working... More

Unfortunately this restaurant did not impress due to staffing issues and unacceptable service. On a two week holiday this was out only negative in nz. We ordered very early and was assured delivery to our hotel would not be a problem. A number was never asked for apart from our hotel. After over an hr we called to enquire and... More

I have lived and travelled around the world in the past, two months ago I moved to Rotorua. I was so pleasantly surprised by the flavour and quality of the Pizza Library that I felt the need to share it with more people. From now on, this will be my only pizza place in Rotorua. Yumm!!!

The pizza was overpriced for what it was, and I dont think my particulr pizza's were anything to rave about.
