I love Fumo. The food, the waiters, the chilled atmosphere. They are also the only place in town that I know of that makes risotto 😊.

The cocktails were not too bad and arrived on time. However the same cant be said about the food. Ordered the sole garnished with scallops only... More

If you want a taste of Italian food in Africa, Fumo is the place to be! Whilst there also order Italian wine. I promise, you will come back for more.

This restaurant cannot seem to get it together. Either the order is wrong or they are out of stock. Nice anbience, good food, waiters need better training and grossly overpriced.

Although in a hurry and choosing from the tapas and starter menu, this restaurant really was an unexpectedly positive surprise! The food was great and the service excellent

So I was pretty excited to be going to the place as I had heard the food was good.. I have never felt more cheated in my life for what I had paid for and what I had received. Service was at a level of a cafeteria and that is being modest, to be served oysters at R38 each which... More

If you classify food,as food,unfortunately some people call burgers and other junk as "food" as well,well clearly you can't mention this Restaurant in the same breath. Maybe more expensive,but then,you get what you expect from Good Italian food,really good food,a clear cut above the rest. Sardines Excellent!!!!! Sole Brilliant,Ribeye Steak very good,cheese platter excellent. Some positive criticism - please sort... More

This restaurant is great for a semi formal dinner. Waiters are attentive and serve well. Food is not run of the mill and unique. However be prepared to pay, a little overpriced. Be sure to check out Kream as well.
