“Great Restaurant!!!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Was taken to Fumo by a friend and all my expectations were exceeded. The freshness and quality of the food is beyond anything i have experienced at other restaurants in Pretoria. Flavours were spot on! The service is efficient an friendly without over crowding you. Fumo is a beautiful restaurant and difinately one to try if you want want great Italian.

“Ripp off Italian”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Saw the good reviews and we went there. What a disappointment, will never go back. Pricing is ridiculous for ordinary dishes and the dishes are just plain and simple, NOTHING special. The restaurant below them has better pastas and so do a number of other restaurants.

“"Blown away"”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I went there for a dinner with my daughter, she had a lamb rack and I had stefanos pizza. It was my first time, a warm welcome, a great atmosphere and the food was mouth watering. Wow I was really impresed by the outlook of the restaurant and the service was top class. Italian kitchen brought to Pretoria.

“The Best!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Without a doubt the best Gauteng has to offer, Fumo is my firm favourite. Living in Sandton, I travel to Pretoria as often as I can to eat here and I am always delighted by the exceptional food. Fresh, high quality ingredients brought together to form delicious dishes that are on a level I have yet to experience elsewhere. The desserts are simply fantastic as well and it is such a pleasure to end off a meal with a beautifully presented homemade dessert, completing an experience that is gratifying from beginning to end. Friendly, unobtrusive service, an impressive wine list, good value for money and great decor, it has become difficult for me to eat anywhere else! Bravo!

“Another wonderful food experience at Fumo!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

After many dinners at Fumo, and after becoming their regular customer and tasting almost all their menu I decided to write another review. As I wrote the first time In fumo you can taste the autenthic Italian kitchen, going trought their menu it's like traveling about Italy and everywhere the menu takes you will be never disappointed. The finest ingredients are united to prepear dishes that will make you dream and the variety of the menu can satsfy all your wishes. The selection of wines is very good and they always renew it with new entries . The staff is always very friendly and professional they can handle a romantic couple evening or a big group of persons. Well what else can I say great place all arroud it's difficult to do better !
