Such a novel (bahaha - no pun intended!!) concept. The shop itself was sooooo cool - a pity it is so small. A bit dirty (flies everywhere... but it was really hot). Also a pity it is soooo far out of town. Obviously very popular because we had to wait ages for our pizza and people were constantly coming and... More

We purchased some takeaway pizzas from The Pizza Library and they were quite good. Nice thin crusts. Very tasty.

I read some excellent reviews about The Pizza Library so I had very high expectations. The pizzas were good, but not as good as I had hoped - I felt that they could have been more "gourmet" as they were not really too different from any other pizza in any other restaurant. I loved the concept though, and they were... More

I have eaten pizza in Italy, New York and many other places on this planet and I can honestly say that The Pizza Library would definitely rate in my top 5 pizza eateries in the world! The flavours are mouth watering and the staff are amazing. LOVE IT!

The choices for toppings and flavours are wonderfully delicious. The decor is brilliant and nice to browse over a book whilst digging into a scrumptious delicacy.

Great tasty pizza not too expensive either. The wait is nice in this eclectic little library. There was a lovely girl playing the piano when we went there. Would certainly go there again!

Great little pizza shop with a character all of it's own and the pizzas are great too. It can be a little slow sometimes but thats just because it's so popular it gets really really busy - you just need to remember to order a little bit earlier. My fav is the Charlottes Web - delicious. Great to have a... More

It is absolutely different from most of pizza places, you get a huge pizza for the same price as everywhere and it tastes so amazing you can also combine flavors for an extra charge=) great customer service!))
