What they say:

Showcasing the finest traditional recipes that Italy has to offer, Fumo is the newest restaurant to open in the ever-adapting Covent Garden area. With a line-up of Italian chefs and led by the experienced Filippo Pagani and Franco Bellamusto, dishes from Venice, Piedmont, Naples and Rome are all served here, produced using only the freshest ingredient available. Complementing the fantastic flavours and completing the authentic experience, the venue's elegant and suave decor gives it plenty of character and an unmistakable air of confidence.

What we say:

Fumo's combination of traditional recipes, fresh ingredients and years of experience is always going to be a winning formula. With ingredients shipped in from the trading tables of Milan and a wine selection that perfectly accompanies the flavours of each dish, expect big things from this Soho eatery. Of course, for every restaurant committing itself to traditional recipes, maintaining a high level of freshness is always going to be the biggest challenge. However, with years of experience under their belt, the team will undoubtedly rise high above their competitors and continue to dazzle with this fine dining experiences from the Italian peninsula.
