A stunning upmarket Restaurant

Absolutely everything on the Menu is pure Italian Bliss. A beautiful Setting with an open Veranda area for outside Dining. Interior Luxury and Class adds to the awesome Dinner Experience.

We recently had lunch at Fumo and although the food was excellent I found it rather expensive. Two of the starters: haloumi and deep fried courgettes at R55 each could have done with a sauce. The pasta dishes were lovely (from R110 except for al fresco at R80) as were the steaks (rib eye at R220 each). The desserts were... More

When this restaurant opened around four years ago, it was horrendous. Vowed never to come back. Now, things have completely changed. The waiters are attentive, the food is diverse and excellent, and the atmosphere is great. Definitely recommend a visit if you want a classy but welcoming experience.

Their seafood is very nice, we had the prawn with black rice cakes as a starter. The fish was also very delish👌🏻! My friend tried the pizza, its apparently the best and you wont find anything more Italian than Fumo unless you go to Italy... The manager is very friendly and all the staff well mannered (except for the hostess... More

I had dinner and lunch on several occasions at this place. Prices are at a significant premium, food is really not in line with my expectations and come at a significant price. Portions are small (for example, I had venison for a main course and the total weight of meat did not make 100gr). Presentation is always very good, but... More

So,here I am in Pretoria salivating for barbecued baby chicken. Baaaaam! A friend called for a hangout, on reaching out the menu, I just saw Bae - Baby Chicken. Nicely prepared the way I love it. And not forgetting I washed it down with a bottle of white wine which I shared with friends. I'll definitely try here out again... More

Fumo was one of our favourite restaurants in our home town and we visited regularly. Imagine our disappointment to turn up on Sunday evening to find a new menu with our favourites emoved. Our server assured us the chef would still prepare them. Apparently not. We asked if the pizza oven was still in use and were told it was... More
