Took some mates from out of town there, staff were super friendly and the pizzas we had were just mouth watering. You want a great pizza you go to the pizza library

Extremely friendly staff and excellent pizza with great toppings. Our 1st pizza apparently wasn't up to scratch (we couldn't see anything wrong with it) so a second was delivered free of charge! Not like any takeaway I have been to before, more of a community centre :)

After reviewing mount maunganui pizza library I thought it only right to review my favourite local food place. I am here every weekend for a half and half hunger games and James and the giant peach! I Absolutly love this place. Hidden gem. Thanks for the service guys.

My wife and I visited the place this afternoon and we were too early. It was just 4pm and they open at 430. So we waited for a 30 minutes. The wait is worth it, we ordered the Great Gatsby pizza. Nice staff, too. We'll be coming back for sure to try other pizzas with names of books like The... 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.

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 time is very reasonable, however... More

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
