THE HANDS OF THE MOB IN THE MOUTH OF AUCKLAND
I always promised my mother I was going to school. I had the best intentions. I would get ready to go, get my bag and my books. But things didn't always turned out the way I'd promised. I would go downstairs and meet friends - and that's where things would sometimes take a different turn.
On occasions, we would walk a different way to avoid the usual route to school. And there was a place where I would find myself nearly everyday. It was where we would have breakfast and lunch, and sometimes stop for afternoon snacks.
In the morning, the aroma of coffee would mingle with the scent of fresh pastries and, later in the day, with pizza, panini, tramezzini and the odd plate of pasta.
This place was my local bar, where my father would buy me a drink on Sundays and I had to climb the bar stools, that then seemed high as mountains. My friends and I referred to this place as our COVO, our meeting place, our safe heaven, our living room. Luciano, the bar owner, was our mentor, our friend, defender and critic. We felt safe there, cared for, part of a family, of a clan, of a circle of friends that was inseparable.

Covo Restaurant Cafe and Bar Grey Lynn
Went to Covo Grey Lynn for an end of year dinner and had a fantastic time! The nice area out the back had a wonderful atmosphere, the pasta was amazing and the staff were brilliant. The staff even spoke basic phrases in Italian which gave that extra special touch to the evening. Not bad value for money either! I would highly, highly recommend Covo!
