Lasagna!

Went there twice. Nice italian environment and staff, the food is very good and not very expensive. The lasagna was very good, but could be bigger.

Dined here with some friends before an evening out. Must say i was really let down. Living close by to Covo i had been here a few times or grabbed a take away pizza on my way home some nights. Unfortunately whenever i have 'dined in' it hasn't been a good experience. My friends partner ordered fetticune dish...it came out... More

This was one for the first restaurants I tried when I first got here in Auckland. I was with my colleagues and decided to go for Italian food. Their place is quiet small but I still liked the ambiance. At the end, I like their friendly staff but I did not like their carbonara that much.

Hello Ana, thank you for your comment, I'm just surprised about your recension about the Carbonara. I would like just said that the day that you are came at Covo we have a guy in trial for the chef position and probably he make a mistake with your Carbonara.

Enjoyed a delightful meal at Covo. The handmade "meat-lovers" pizza was truly delicious and memorable...large enough for two to share. The Alfredo pasta dish was ample and wonderful. We enjoyed the outdoor seating, Located just a five minute walk from the historic Ferry Building. Found a great discount on Jucy Deals website...it works like Groupon.

We found this restaurant just around the corner from our hotel The Harbour Oaks in Gore St. We had the Risotto and they say the mark if a good Italian restaurant is its risotto .... This certainly rings true here! My judgment of a great Italian restaurant is its Tiramisu ... wow buonissimo! The decor is cosy and reminiscent of... More

The waiter that served usvwas wonderful and very attentive, food arrived promptly, and was delicious. Perfect portion sizes so you can have entree, main and dessert. It has a cosy atmosphere and the prosecco is only $9. Will definitely be coming here again.

This place has a great value lunch menu offering pasta and pizzas for between $10-$14. The dishes are very fresh, and although generally simple, the ingredients used are good quality and therefore the flavours are great. At lunch time, for a pasta dish, a pizza, a tiramisu and a coffee out bill came to $39, a very good price for... More
