Situated along the waterfront of Marina Bay Sands, Caffe B is a nouveau fine dining establishment that offers Italian cuisine with sprinklings of Japanese influence. Rounding off the experience of good food and friendly service is their extensive list of fine Italian wines, including several rare labels.

Ambience at Caffe B benefits from the view along the Singapore River. Mostly comprised of outdoor seating, Caffe B is chic and stylish, with muted tones befitting a fine dining establishment. However, the limited seating means you'll probably have to wait about 10 - 20 minutes for a table during peak periods.

Service at Caffe B is friendly, efficient and professional. Staff are knowledgable on menu items and ingredients, and food is served pretty quickly. I like that they also accomodate change requests. Noticed that staff are quite alert as well.

Food at Caffe B is primarily Italian, with several twists by combining Japanese ingredients and flavours. Menu items comprise mainly of pasta, pizza, and salads, with a small list of Italian desserts. Prices at Caffe B are on the higher side, because of its fine dining status, but each dish portions are generous, sufficient for 3 - 4 people.

Love the river side breeze here. The Bailey's Coffee is strong and fragrant, and I liked the addition of the raspberry which lifts the flavour.

The Calzone (SGD $20) is stuffed with black truffle paste, mozzarella cheese, a soft boiled egg, fresh button mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, and Italian Mortadella sausage. Tasty, and so beautiful when cut as the egg yolk just oozes out. Aroma is strong and fragrant, and taste is earthy, fresh, and meaty. I also liked that they covered the empty half of the plate with Mesclun Salad, drizzled with truffle and pesto sauce. My only complaint was that it is slightly overseasoned with salt, leaving me thirsty towards the end.

Think of those Japanese omelette vegetable pizza you get at the Pasar Malam Night Markets in Singapore, and you'll have a good sense of what the Salmon Pizza With Wasabi Mayo (SGD $23) looks and tastes like. The perfect combination / fusion of Italian and Japanese cuisine, using Italian pizza techniques but Japanese ingredients. The Salmon Pizza With Wasabi Mayo features fresh salmon flakes, mozzarella cheese, yaki nori seasoned seaweed strips, wasbai mayonnaise, teriyaki sauce and sprinkled with bonito fish flakes. Sweet, tangy, crisp and slightly spicy all at once, the flavour is very intense and unforgettable. Again though, I felt it was overseasoned with salt.

Tiramisu made in the classic Italian style, using ladyfinger sponge biscuits dipped in coffee! The version here contains no alcohol, but is extermely good.

I love how the Caffe B Pizza Box looks so pretty! While the food here is good, I find it tends to suffer slightly from the too liberal use of salt. Tone it down a bit, and they'll do much better.
