This was a neighborhood restaurant near the university. We had the risotto with prawn (a little salty, but good), lamb fusilli, and the burrata. All were worth ordering. Main course and a glass of wine for three came to about R600, which I thought was reasonable for the setting, service and food quality. My only complaint was that the best... More

The service was absolutely fantastic and Tony, the owner, made sure that we were briefed on the evening's specials on the menu. I chose the penne with tuna and my husband the lamb rump. It was absolutely delicious. The lemon mascarpone tartlet with lemon sorbet rounded off the meal very nicely.

I was very disappointed when we went there last week. They are just down the road from me and seen they are a top restaurant on some websites . But the seafood gnocchi I had, was INEDIBLE!! I could not eat my food and left the restaurant hungry (after a R1300 bill for two, shocking!). My husband had a R350... More

Nice restaurant with good selection of food. Was not very happy with ambiance, but food made up for the good night out. The Antipasto Capeech was "out of this world" though

From the moment we walked in the service was great. Main course was suburb... but when the dessert came we needed to look a bit closer. I feel the desserts could get some more attention to size.

The service was very good. However, the food portions were extra small for that price. The food was really great and the presentation was appealing.

Fumo was a good restaurant until 2014. But it used to be a nice place. The service is good, meals are expensive but not delicious. In Pretoria there are many other places to enjoy food.

The service was really good.The food however,was a great disappointment.The mozzarella starter was served with no garnish or sauce,only three balls of crumbed cheese.I had to cut off the edges of the lamb ravioli , as it was hard and inedible ,obviously over heated from frozen.The "Italian cheesecake" looks like a pastry ,consisting of dough with hardly any filling, had...

Go for the risotto. I implore you, just go. There are are many superb Italian Restaurants in Pretoria, but Fumo has that little extra zest. With their fancy cooking oven (Jasper) and their clean table cloths and did I mention the heavenly risotto? Go for a three course meal and expect the very best in service, crockery and taste.
