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.

Pizza is hugely scrumptious, waiting is a delight if you have a musical family. I can't remember the names of the pizza we had but one was salmon and clams and anchovies ...divine. The other had barbeque pork, loved it

Stepping into The Pizza Library is like stepping into a fantasy novel, a lot genius ideas have been put into the place, from their wacky decors to the recipe of their pizza, and boy, do their pizzas live up to their quirky names! The crust is thin and the toppings are generous; wackiness and quirkiness aside, the pizzas definitely speak... More

I don't know what pizza these other reviewers had but the 2 we chose, Scrooge and Charlotte's Web were appalling to look at and tasted the same. The base was like cardboard (I am not joking) it's as if they were pre-made in the morning, left to sit on the pizza racks all day and placed in the oven and... More

When the Pizza Library first opened their fabulous pizzas were worth waiting nearly an hour for....now the wait is shorter and so is the quality of the pizzas.
