Firstly they were still setting up our table when we arrived at our pre booked time /table. Then they did not have stock of the wines we wanted to drink. Then they kept on closing the balcony window where we were seated because the owner wants it closed. This was going on for the entire evening. Then the food arrived... More

Definitely the best italian restaurant in Pretoria, with authentic italian food, a high level of quality and an excellent service. The portions size is very good, LINGUINI AI CROSTACEI is simply to die for!!! I love their Lambrusco wines and I must say, you never get disappointed at Fumo. D E L I C I O U S !

Amazing food and great service. I have been in several restaurants in Pretoria, but this is the first time I had an authentic Italian dinner. The quality of food is excellent and the environment is awesome. I will never forget the pizza and the seafood I had in Fumo, and of course the next time I will come back again!

Fumo is one the best spots for a good pasta. The focaccia and Caprese combo is must try to start. The baby octopus stew is outstanding and always a favorite. It's one of the few restaurants where one can have fresh fennel served with carpaccio and salad. The owner is always accommodating to make meals to your liking. For someone... More

We had a super meal; a delicious pizza for me and a superb pasta for my husband. The restaurant is really beautiful, staff very nice and we even had life music. We absolutely had a great evening and if ever in that area again, we will definitely have dinner there again.
