I went out with my partner to enjoy a nice Italian dinner tonight. There were only a couple of customers dinning so service was nice and quick. We only a traditional pizza and salad. Food was nice and good flavors but I was a bit surprise about the size. My partner is a chef and we both have Italian background... More

Hello Maria! thank you for your review. I'm the manager and that night I was present. Your review is very strange, because that night we have had only one usual guests that order always the same Pizza + Salad and not any "traditional pizza/salad??". I want to specify that at the end of the Dinner they was satisfied. At Covo... More

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

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.

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.

Along with the other reviewers I have to agree the pizza is great. Service is friendly and meals came out in good time. I had the panecotta for desert and it was incredible! Best one I have tasted. Definitely will be back to try the pasta ...and another serve of that incredible panne cotta

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
