I was there for lunch and I have a set menu of "antipasto+primo and dessert". Location is in Landmark by Central. My portion of linguine with scallops was pretty generous, while the medium small appetizer of "bresaola" was missing some oil which I have added.... at the end a pretty good meal. Quite friendly staff.

Had a quick business meeting here. The Landmark is my favourite mall in HK. But COVA does not meet Landmark's standards. Staff are grumpy and non smiling . Drinks overpriced

It was only a handful of years ago when Cova branches were prime locations if you wanted proper coffee drinks in Hong Kong. These days, quite a few quality coffee shops have sprung up around the city, especially in places like Sheung Wan and Wan Chai, making it much less of a necessity to seek out Cova shops when you...

The perfect place for a tea break when you are in Central shopping. Good service, great Italian cakes, cappuccino and pasta. A franchise of the Milan Cova and quite authentic.

Love the pastry, chocolate and cakes here. Coffee is average. Services differs from store to store. Nice place for a relaxing afternoon coffee with cakes.

One of the better places in Hong Kong for cakes and desserts. They have many branches around in central and Kowloon shopping malls. Kids and vegetarian friendly too

Cafe Cova definitely has some of the best cakes in Hong Kong. Their signature Mango Cream cake is to die for! Head over for their afternoon tea offer for a slice of cake and a pot of tea, you won't regret it!

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
