    The food was amazing, as always! I’ve been there a couple of times but this time was the first one for lunch. I have to say that the atmosphere is not the same AT ALL. It was quite empty, a bit too quiet and the waiters were a bit lost and slow when there were only 5 tables occupied for the whole restaurant… would recommend to go for dinner and not lunch.

    The food is not amazing and the place doesn’t have great acoustics and so it gets really loud. I wouldn’t go back.

    Cosy and nice restaurant. As we sat down we were informed that the idea is to share the plates, and that we should order 4-5 plates for 2 persons. Good food, the melanzane was amazing.

    Beautiful dining room with attentive service. Food is fairly run of the mill, and wine list is extensive but not particular well chosen. Terrible acoustics but buzzy place for pre theatre

    Fumo is a bright, vibrant restaurant with a great food concept - Italian cicchetti which is tapas style small plates to share. Problem is the plates are very small and very expensive for what you get. The meat and seafood is particularly poor value, over £20 for a piece of meat which would barely class as a portion, and presented without any garnish or accompaniment. The food itself was of average quality, and the presentation was poor. Another example was the Bruschetta - 1 slice of dry toast with a few cherry tomatoes tossed on top.. no seasoning, no oil, no garlic, in fact none of the basic ingredients which would allow it to be called a bruschetta. The service was also poor - the restaurant was very busy when we were there but we had to wait nearly an hour to order any food or drink and only did then after asking 2 different people to take our order. All in all it wasn't a great experience and there are plenty of way better Italian restaurants in the area.

    Long wait getting food and asked 3 times for the bill ( about 25 mins ) Food not correct ( wife does not like bell peppers so ordered a dish that did not mention them and it came up covered in them) for all they know she could have an allergy, the dish was sent back and an apology was sent out and service removed

    The vibe and atmosphere are so groovy. The wait staff and serving staff were fast efficient and friendly. The food was exquisite and the portions just right. It is my go to restaurant whenever I come to London from US. Absolutely one of my favorite places to eat. I can't say enough good things About this fantastic restaurant,and that it's share food makes it an enjoyable and festive meal for families or for business associates.

    Disappointing Food was cold and not freshly made. Pasta cold Fried mozerella cold. Calamari cold and rubbery. Waiters didn’t know which table was which. Big shame as they have potential to be a lot better.

    Fantastic little restaurant with a unique style and outlook to service. We were new to this type of thing so probably didn’t get the best out of it on this first visit. However, if we get the opportunity to return we will get more out of it and be better prepared.
