Not a great place but not bad. Nice atmosphere inside and a decent range of options on the menu although not in the slightest bit Italian. Between us we had meatballs, pizza, seafood stew, tagliatelle and risotto. All went down well but nothing to write home about. Not really worth the above average price. Waiter did that annoying thing of... More

Brought my family for a Sunday afternoon lunch. Limited menu for an Italian Restaurant and extremely expensive. I guess that is one or maybe the main reason why the Restaurant is not busy. I think one can do much beter only a kilo or two closer to Brooklyn

Good day Pieter limited menu it is synonymous of freshness in all ingredients, we try to concentrate and focus not on a thousand dishes menu, and the reason why is because Fumo restaurant change is menu 3 times per year. My experience as Chef teach myself that, when i walk in a restaurant and i'll find numerous dishes in the... More

Took some friends to visit Fumo since we've always had good food experiences there. Unfortunately there was a power cut which made it difficult for the chef to cook and for us to read the menu. Candlelight supper can be romantic but not so good for reading text. Food was under the circumstances ok, no real complaints, and everyone was... More
