Fumo Upper West
A cozy place with amazing food. Had a great pizza!!!
Very ordinary Italian fare, but the manhattans were good.
This restaurant is fabulous. My husband and I always ordered takeout from here (which consistently arrives hot and delicious) but I had never dined in until I went for dinner with my girlfriend last night. Immediately upon arrival, the one thing you notice right away is the cozy, welcoming atmosphere. The service was friendly and gracious and on point. The bartender made my “special drink” (yes I’m annoyingly picky w my drinks) perfectly. Finally, the food was amazing. My friend was very impressed. Such an amazing neighborhood find in a neighborhood where there is a lack of quality “go to” places. This definitely will be ours.
It was my second time eating at Fumo restaurant in five days. And the only reason why I will not come every week is to avoid gaining weight. You made my wedding day even more amazing. Your place brought even more happiness to my life yesterday. I knew that Fumo was the best place to celebrate. The restaurant is beautiful, romantic and warm. All the staff is very professional, attentive and welcoming. And God, the food is excellent. The simplicity of the menu doesn't give justice to the exquisite taste and quality of the food. All my guests agreed with me. We all felt that it was like having our own private chef at home. We can wait to discover the rest of the menu! I have nothing bad to say about Fumo restaurant. Fumo is now part of our very exclusive list of favorite restaurants in NYC. I wish you and your business many more blessings. Thank you again!
Bustling and friendly fun neighborhood spot! Have been there 4 time in the last 3 months, always a big hit with the entire family. Terrific Italian food, absolutely love the “small plates” ( specials are inventive but not crazy!) and attentive extremely quick service. Great for families as well as and a night out for adults. Spacious side room for a larger party. Highly recommend!.
Best Italian in the neighborhood! Great service, amazing drinks!
Fumo is one of my go to restaurants on the upper west side. The food and service are reliably excellent and the atmosphere is very nice as well. I am thankful to have such a great spot on the upper west side!
The branzino fish is perfectly cooked with herbs and lemon. Chilean seabass with tomatoes and clams special delicious. It's a great neighborhood secret.
Nice ambience and good food at very reasonable prices.
I always love going to Fumo. Best prices for the best food, great service. Attentive but not overbearing.
Fumo has been a tremendous addition to our neighborhood both as a culinary success and as an authentic casual Italian dining establishment in particular (so very needed in the upper west)
We dine at Fumo frequently and have tried many of their creative dishes, much to our delight (even the kids were excited!) and find the menu friendly and delicious. The staff is extremely knowledgeable. personable and attentive, always making sure we are totally happy with the preparation and food restrictions, they have recommended us excellent wine pairing and help the kids with their choices.
The ambiance is pleasant, the space is not crammed and the beautiful big windows facing Broadway give it a feeling of a charming Trattoria in Italy - matched by super reasonable prices for the quality of food and service. We recently celebrated our daughter's birthday at Fumo with 20 friends and family, and after working closely with the management on the menu and details it ended up a major success with everyone having a great time. We highly recommend this restaurant!
Servers worked together as a team to make the dinner pleasurable.
A welcome addition to the neighborhood. Reliably excellent food and good service if sometimes a bit noisy.
Food and service were superb! Waiters were especially nice and caring. A fun place to dine in.
Wonderful food and service.
Unhurried New Year’s Eve pre-concert dinner. Very pleasant; good food, especially spaghetti con funghi
Went for Christmas Eve with a party of 7. Though we had to wait a little for our table to become available, the hostess was gracious and kept us in the loop the entire time waiting. Food was delicious, with generous portions, all at a reasonable cost. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, and it was a great place to begin the holiday. We all will definitely be back.
Dependably fine food (and BTW great for gluten-free and dairy-free diners, a rarity in Italian restaurants). A neighborhood gem. You always eat well at Fumo.
Service here is impeccable, and they were able to accommodate some dietary restrictions. Fish special was so good, and my date’s vegan pesto was amazing!
A bit tight table layout and crowded, but good food and good service at a reasonable price makes you not care.
Had a wonderful meal here as an end of the year celebration with my small office unit. Pizzas and pastas were all stellar, and the fried artichokes to start were a huge hit. Music was fun but not overpowering and the staff were very attentive but not rushing.
Lovely place. Loved the food. Quick service and nice atmosphere
Enjoyed our dinner at Fumo. Food was very good, atmosphere was casual and comfortable. The only problem was that they jumped in to clear plates too quickly. I put down my fork for a minute and my appetizer was almost whisked away. It felt like they wanted us out quickly, but there were available tables and no wait. So we shouldn't have been rushed.
The only problem is the noise level in the restaurant was really loud. I measured it on my app and it was almost 90 decibels
Wonderful service and yummy food. The whole family loves it!
Fumo specializes in pasta and it is very good, especially the spaghetti carbonara. This visit I had the shrimp salad -- grilled shrimp over asparagus and greens with goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette -- also excellent. Sunday nights are $10 pasta nights, so it is also quite a bargain.
Had a delicious chicken panini. Nice atmosphere
Wonderfully fresh food, consistent and delicious, excellent service. The decor is simple and fresh, highlighting the food. Have been there with many people and it is universally appreciated. It can be noisy when it is full but it is open all day offering options. This isn't fine dining, portions are large, but it is a good value for a very good meal with excellent service. Highly recommend.
Wonderful bronzino. Cooked perfectly. And my hubby loved the lamb shanks. Thanks for finding us a quiet table!
Fumo never disappoints - our go-to spot for everyday and special occasion. Fumo forever!
Service and food was great!
One of the best local neighborhood restaurants! The food, service and atmosphere are all just wonderful ~ I really love and treasure this restaurant.
Nice ambient neighborhood place. Great prices. Great reliable service.
We have been to Fumo several times and were pleased. That's why when we went the other night with a friend, were surprised by the awful experience. The hostess had sat 2 of our party in the corner of the room that was having a private (large) party. When I arrived, I immediately asked why we were seated in the area of the party. The hostess stated that the party would be sitting down for dinner and we would be ok. Kind of an odd response, especially since we were repeat customers and there were a few open tables throughout the main restaurant. The manager was rude; the hostess did reseat us after a few requests from us. When the food came, the calamari was tough, the artichoke meh but the pasta was good. I'm not so eager to recommend friends to Fumo UW.
The restaurant was very loud. The service was okay- not great. The food was also only okay. Really not special.
Great food. Well priced wine list. Very good service. Highly recommend.
It used to be very noisy but they have fixed that so much better. And food is superb.
A consistent dining experience with very good food and great service. Please don’t ever close!
Italian dishes, including pizzas and pasta, with a full bar, in a casual setting.
Excellent menu...great choices...huge portions...wonderful service
