Pontini for Italian cuisine .......... Good desert discovered


Pontini has been with the Grand Copthorne Hotel Waterfront ever since the hotel started business along the Singapore river. This is the second time that HY and I visited this Italian restaurant. Since my first visit, HY and I have been raving about Pontini's desert sampler to our close friends.

Here's the Pontini's desert platter (S$32) which includes their three signature deserts. they are also available seperately in the desert menu.



Creme Brulee topped with berries. The sour berries teams up nicely with the sweet mousse at the bottom. Yummy .......


Banana Parfait. The pieces of banana are imprehated into the parfait. A thin coconut crisp is placed on the parfait. ..........


Venetian Tiramisu. The cake is interlaced with the mousse ..........


Sorbet with fresh fruits .......


We did eat our dinner before the deserts .......

Here's the bread basket and sticks that was served before our orders ....... good stuff.


Soup of baby neck clams with assorted seafood served with garlic croutons. This an appetising soup with all the fresh goodness of the seas. We're wondering why there' no prawns tonight and we found out that the restaurat have returned the batch of prawn which were not fresh according to their standards. I like their attitude to maintain the standards ..........


This is what my friend had ordered ...... pan seared US beef. This proves to be the best of our mains. Everyone who've asked for a bite of this beef dish all nodded in approval.


Apart from my friend who ordered the beef dish with a stamp of everyone's approval, the rest of us unknowingly ordered their scallop squid ink linguine. None of u thinks that it's anything special.

Cost : about S$60 per person for dinner including desert.

Address : 392 Havelock Road, Grand Copthorne Hotel (Waterfront), 2nd floor

Country : Singapore

I'd love to eat there. Tsese all seems incredibly scrumptious. I love especially the soup. Also the desserts are so tempting. I think beef is always on the top for everyone for every place. I don't know why. I also have a marinated beef recipe in my blog. Welcome come visit it.

Heard that the original head chef went to set up Otto at Red Dot Traffic.
