Fumo has the best ambiance for hosting the most high-level business and private international guests. The staff is extremely professional, hospitable and the food is served timously, delicious and well prepared. The manager creates a very welcoming environment. I hosted a private dinner with international high-profile guests, we were treated in the private and secluded dining room.

I missed this amazing Italian cuisine so much, that when visiting Pretoria I knew I had to come visit Fumo! They definitely did not disappoint! Best pizza in the country, by far! I can't wait for my next visit...

As Italian working in Pretoria I go quite often to Fumo and I have seen it growing. I can say it without any doubts: Fumo is the best (italian) restaurant that Pretoria and Johannesburg can offer at present. The food is excellent as most of the products used are imported directly from Italy. It is an authentic italian restaurant, respectful... More

Had one of the worst meals in my life at Fumo in pretoria. All the reviews they get must be fake and this restaurant must investigated for giving false information about the food and service. Ordered the meatballs that had water instead of sauce. The waiter took forever to get our wine which we had to change as they did... More

A really delicious paste is linguine shellfish ( crab, lobster and prawns). Offers many different settings and a cigar/whiskey lounge also a new private dining area. Also has a good wine selection from South Africa and Italy.

The view was pleasant, the interior impressive BUT... The service was slow, the music too loud, the guests too rowdy, and the kitchen forgot to prepare one of our guests food! The medium steak was bleeding and the portions barely enough for a 36 kilogrammer on a strict diet ! No head was given to the request to reduce the... More

This is a nice restaurant, very clean and with attentive service. Extensive wine list. Good food that is well prepared and the portions are large. It is a bit pricey but not too damaging to the wallet.
