Italian
Fiume opened in 2013 and is located in Compton, Owners Stefano and Carla welcome you to enjoy quality, modern interpretations of classic dishes inspired by their home regions of Sardinia and Basilicata.

As Italians we are passionate about everything we do and food and drink are hugely important to our culture as we meet with friends and family to enjoy our time together. At Fiume you will experience a little of this culture as we share it with you. We provide authentic Italian cuisine with a southern Italian influence and a fresh twist.

We are proud to be an independent, family-run, Italian bar and restaurant offering you a relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere. During the good weather, you can also dine alfresco whilst watching the passing canal boats and your family dog can watch with you too.

Superb food, great range of choice and all of it delicious. Service is informal and friendly with attentive but not intrusive staff. Expensive but not excessively so and the experience is worth the price.

My friend loved the restaurant. She used to go narrow boating with her late husband and the canal side setting reminded her of that time. We felt we were on holiday. We very much liked the food and found the service very relaxed in a good way and loved the fact that we were given a piece of folded pizza to try after we finished our starter as we had never heard of it before. Some little girls on the next table were obviously enjoying it and we were curious. The weather was just right and even though we knew we had a set time we were allowed to stay longer and have coffee. There were quite a lot of customers, but tables were evenly spaced in this COVID time. Well done.

Another wonderful evening at Fiume. We sat outside to eat and the ambience on the terrace on a hot summer evening was perfect. Service was impeccable - every member of staff is welcoming, good humoured and attentive. The food was delicious as always, steak cooked to perfection.

A lovely venue by the canal side. Fabulous food but for me the wine list was a little restricted with only one expensive bottle that I liked, however it was a very nice Sauvignon.
I would have scored five stars for the venue but it was an extremely hot evening (32 degrees) and the
Building does not have air conditioning which it uncomfortable for eating inside.

We would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant where you can guarantee a friendly,
welcoming atmosphere and an excellent menu.
Particular thanks must be given to Adam and Gemma for creating such a relaxed ambience.

Booked online to celebrate our anniversary and requested table downstairs due to husbands mobility, neither of which were acknowledged on arrival. Had it not been a gorgeous night, we would have had to sit upstairs as all downstairs tables were taken.
Food as always was delicious, service excellent
Wish there had been more choice for dessert as they all had chocolate
or Nutella in them and I cant eat chocolate.
However, it was a lovely evening and we will definitely return

Second visit with friends to Fiume, once before Covid and then again last night. Both times were excellent, Food was wonderful and as it’s lovely weather we ate outside, its a pretty setting and felt like being on holiday. Service was attentive and friendly, think it’s now one of my favourite restaurants.

Lovely place. Good food and service. I had not seen my friends for two years. Due to the upstairs room construction, rather than clients speaking, it was very difficult to have a conversation, or hear the waitresses, due to the noise levels

The food at Fiume was delicious with generous portion sizes. The restaurant has been decorated really well and feels very clean and airy. My only criticism would be that it was very noisy with lots of people talking loudly so it was difficult to have a conversation with the rest in my party. Having said that it would not put me off going again as the rest more than made up for it.
