While vacationing in Rotorua, my husband and I were looking for something different to eat, as we had already eaten our waynacross all of town and we were pleasanly surprised when we came across a listing for this pizza company in our hotel directory. This pizzaria has quite a large selection of artisan pizzas. When we received our pizza (from... More

Planned Saturday night dinner of Pizza Library takeout on the back of TripAdvisor reviews ....we were visiting Rotorua for the weekend ...despite it being quite a drive from where we were staying ...we wanted something a little different. And a little different it is. What a pleasant surprise. Great little shop (takeout only) imaginatively decorated with a lady playing the... More

love the ambience of both shops and the fresh flavour value for gourmet huuge pizzas. Local musicians play live music also on occasions, great for budding artistes

there was loads of selection to choose from. We played it safe and got pepperoni and cheese. It was very average pizza. The delivery guy was very friendly though so I wish I could say we liked it more.

We had 2 family sized with 1/2 and 1/2 my 1st and 2nd choice venison and lamb was sold out. Good local business. have had better... More

a great idea with delicious flavours, huge pizzas so enough for lunch the next day, personal touch in delivery to our doorstep at the motel, and the pizzas were heavenly. Nice to read the fun names to match the pizzas. Great idea!!

We love to get pizza from here to impress out of towners - because it is fun without being super gimmicky. People seem to have really polar reactions... either really get it and love it, or just not enjoy it at all. We love it, and enjoy the whole experience of the place. Love the new location and the family-run... More

My fave is Little Women! If pizza wasn't so bad I would totally get this every day. Good value for money. Our family are big eaters and thought two medium pizzas would be enough. We just managed to finish one. Lovely, friendly staff! Cool quirky little place and most of all my 1 year old nephew loved it!

Good pizza the place is jumping but it was December tourist time also I believe this is a new place in town I believe they have two we visited the one south of Rotorua. From what I could see it was mainly locals that were using the place as we had to wait over 30 minutes to get the pizzas... More
