The Pizza Library is one of New Zealand’s most celebrated pizzerias, offering large, handcrafted gourmet pizzas, only using the freshest of local produce. Its theme is that of a quirky, old style library with a modern twist. It has an intimate dining experience perfect for special occasions, family friendly & with a fully licensed bar. We are a local favorite & a must do for Bay visitors.
