Not just for amazing desserts, they do great Italian food too

Although the array of pretty desserts and pastries is breathtaking, this charming tea-room-styled bistro serves more than just sweets. The quality of the Italian cuisine here, albeit with a limited menu, is almost faultless. Desserts here are admittedly pricey, so it's best to get the desserts after 8pm, as they go for half the price then. Much more worth it.

We had:

1) Mozart ($16) starter of arugula and grilled prawns dressed with balsamic vinegar was fantastic. The bouncy plump prawns, coated with a smoky sweet glaze, harmonized brilliantly with the bitter crunchy arugula leaves

2) Merluzzo alla Piastra con Pomodori al Forno e Riduzione di Balsamico ($34) pan roasted cod with oven baked tomatoes and balsamic vinegar reduction. The fish was fresh, mild and creamy, topped with a generous sprinkling of ground pistachios for some crunch and a light nutty accent.

3) Risotto al Tartufo Nero ($30) black truffle risotto with porcini mushroom and veal jus - delicate and elegant.My only gripe is that the portion was too tiny for me

4) Dark & White Chocolate Cake ($8) - awesome. The dark chocolate, with its bittersweet overtones, married well with the rich milkyness of the white chocolate. A semi-tart blackberry, raspberry and strawberry provided a brilliant counterfoil to the rich, creamy dessert.

On a recent trip to Singapore ,- due to the fact I missed out on lunch ,and it was too late to visit the Superb " Crystal Jade " Chinese Restaurant on the 4th floor ,-I wandered in to COVA .

I perused the limited selection of savoury items and decided on a cheese and tomato sandwich . No "Ham and Cheese" available ( probably because there is more profit in the alternative ) - Cheese and Tomato .

The Light Rye bread was stale ,-the cheese was tasteless ,-and with a small sliver of Tomato .

If my wife served up such a pathetic sandwich ,I would divorce her .

This excuse for a sandwich cost me : wait for it : $16.50 !!

On the way out ,I did mention to the " Ponsified " doorman with a large pretentious mustache ,that it was the worst sandwich I had ever experienced ,-He replied with a facile comment ,-"But it is light Rye Bread ".

No excuse : even light rye should not be stale .

Never again ,- Potential customers : Be Warned !

The Cova Tiramisu cake was amazing from the first bite. I loved the thick layer of coco powder with the whipped cream and the cake was light and fluffy. The sweetness was just right, and it feels natural.
