Recent upgrades to Fumo restaurant in Groenkloof have been celebrated in style.
Executive chef and owner Claudio Uccello treated guests to connoisseur dishes and quality Prosecco sparkling wine.
The restaurant was opened in 2011.
Uccello trained at Locanda Locatelli in London and remains true to his main ideal.
This is to meet modern South African society with contemporary touches by merging the sophistication of fine dining with warmth and familiarity of Italian culture.
This restaurant is a quaint little place, surrounded by an atmosphere of warmth and passion, playing on the duality of both the everyday and the eventful.
Biting into a dish at Fumo is not just about the meal, but also about savouring the experience of the ingredients that are used in each unique recipe; true artwork that are created by this talented and experienced world-class chef.
Uccello insisted that Italians wanted to welcome people by sharing what they have, however simple and in abundance.
An Italian’s role in life is: feed the people.
There is simply no better place to live than in Pretoria. The city has so much to offer, and its versatility knows no bounds.Think purple streets in October, the crowd at Loftus Versveld when the Bulls score a try, and the happy sounds of vuvuzelas from hooting taxis draped in Mamelodi Sundowns flags.
The Best of Pretoria Readers’ Choice Awards celebrates all this and more, and gives you the chance to tell us what and who is the best the capital city has to offer.
