Mamma Roma is an authentic Italian restaurant located at 4/7 Antigua Street Edinburgh. Situated very close to the Edinburgh Playhouse, this restaurant is not only great for Pre-Theatre diners but also has a delicious and extensive choice of menus to satisfy all customers. The restaurant can also be found within a 10 minute walk of Princes Street Gardens and a convenient 5 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley train station. Mamma Roma’s restaurant is spread over multiple floors. The main dining area is decorated in Tuscan farmhouse style with paintings and medallions embellishing the walls. Special attention is given to the elaborate list of pasta and pizza delicacies and a bowl of gelato or a plate of tiramisu helps to round off a meal on a savory note.

Our new favorite place to go when we’re visiting Edinburgh. Great value and excellent food. It has an authentic, unpretentious, welcoming family vibe.

First time eating here and very impressed. It was very busy but they had loads of staff and everything ran very smoothly. I had a gorgeous spinach and ricotta cannelloni and my wife had the grigliata mista di pesce - she loved it. Will definitely be back.

This was a last minute lunch booking and we loved it. They accommodated us at a nice table, the staff were absolutely lovely, could not have asked for more. The service was brilliant, really quick and the prices were really reasonable. The food tasted beautiful. Will definitely be visiting again!

An excellent menu coupled with efficient friendly staff. The food was just right, wholesome, tasty and portion size just right. For me anyway and I enjoy my food, especially Italian when it's done properly which it was. If your going to be in Edinburgh, like good Italian food, then get online book yourself a table . You won't be disappointed.

We had dinner on Christmas Eve, the restaurant was absolutely full, however the service delivery and food was outstanding. All staff were very courteous, attentive and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our experience. Will come back after festive season.

Service was great here and there is a huge selection of food to choose from including gluten free pasta. Not sure whether it’s the mains that we picked but it was average, however the starters were delicious. Would definitely recommend and come back here when I am next in edinburgh.
