What a great place for a top value lunch. Try the pasta or pizza from the very reasonably priced lunch menu. Staff are great - especially the waiter from Italia! You must try the local wines or the nice coffee. Small place, but well visited!

The chef stayed late and the meal was amazing! The pasta is home made. We had 3 different pasta meals and each one was... More

Delicious pizza which we took back to the hotel where we were staying. The staff was helpful and friendly despite a packed restaurant. The pizza was ready before the promised time. Recommend Coco when in Auckland.

Just came by this little place by chance on our first visit to Auckland. Returned a week later and ate there again. It's small and intimate and the food is as good as in Italy Graham, Lea, Paul & Joan

I went with my family and ordered the gnocchi and it was hand made and tasted great. No reservation and 9 people and got in fine. The staff were great. For desert I ordered the chocolate soufflé it Tasted like moist chocolate goodness. I strongly recommend that you go there.

We went to the Covo on our last night (a Saturday) in Auckland - no reservation, family with kids. Being greeted & treated just as you would expect in an Italian restaurant - very friendly, Italian speeking, short chat about soccer (with the world championship going on) - they quickly arranged a table for us. We had antipasti (good salami... More

Service is ok but really annoying that they ask us every 5 minutes if we're ok or if we want anything else etc. We were there to enjoy the night catching... More
