The restaurant has an absolutely fantastic ambience. Very friendly welcome. We were looking forward to a fabulous evening out. From then on, every time we wanted something, we had to look for service - bearing in mind the restaurant had only about 6 tables occupied, so they were not at all busy. The food was a real disappointment overall - it just did not deliver on the expectations. No indication on the menu that the prawn, calamari and hake starter would have chilli in it and I don't eat hot or spicy food at all, so I was shocked to find the prawns were real chilli hot! Steak was tough and definitely not cooked to medium - more medium rare. Chocolate brownie was horrid. Sorry Fumo, but we won't be back. We were a family of four adults.

This is an upper class establishment - fine dining. You know it is a good restaurant if a lot of local italians go there. The service was very good and the food well prepared, tasty and well presented. Whilst it is a bit more expensive the portions sizes are large and you don't go home hungry.

Excellent Italian food with large variety and combination of Italian wine for all dishes.
Ambience nice for business and couple launch and dinner.

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 tables, near the windows, are also the smoking section. Yuck.
