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.

We had a meal here before the theatre. The meal was certainly not the best Italian food we have eaten. The lasagna base was like tomato soup and the penne arabiatta was just average. Our bill came to £34 and I paid £40 in cash. The waiter took it upon himself to assume that the £6 change was a tip and did not return it to me. I eventually asked for my change and gave it to a homeless man sitting outside. I would not recommend this restaurant!

Food was lovely, one of our guests had the veal and he still hasn’t stopped raving about it. We had a birthday cake delivered to the restaurant and they brought it out with lovely music and a little light show and then served it to us as our dessert. Lovely family run restaurant, highly recommend

Friends recommended us to try this restaurant while we enjoyed a short break in Edinburgh and we weren't disappointed. Although there was a lot of Italian staples on the menu there were also some unique dishes too. Service was pleasant and efficient (one of the bugbears I have about restaurants is the time taken to get the bill and then pay it - thankfully, this wasn't an issue at Mamma Roma's). Cost was as expected for a good restaurant in a large city.

Great menu of well presented food waiter was happy to offer advice on my own preferences choosing the spicy Italian sausage and large tube pasta in red wine sauce! Very handy location opposite to our hotel, booking online ( including a change in timing) was an easy to use online option.

Only 4⭐️On ambience as the alcove table was on the route to the washrooms ..... they and the table have to be somewhere within the restaurant ......so a small point of reference to ask for an alternative table next time around.

Had a lovely meal here for my mother in laws birthday. The bread share platter was delicious and we all thoroughly enjoyed our mains. Staff were very accomodating, even when we were 30 mins late for our reservation due to crazy traffic!! They also went the extra mile to make it a special birthday celebration.
Great location right across from the Playhouse.
A la carte menu was slightly nore expensive but they also offer the pre theatre menu which looked to be great value for money.
Thanks to everyone at Mamma Roma for your wonderful hospitality!!

I was extremely impressed with the service there are 2 restraunts and we went into wrong one. A lovely
Lady actually escorted to the right place next door. She really made a lasting impression on us as she was so caring and friendly.
We three of us all had different starters and main course but each of us were delighted with our meals.
Again the service was first class And I wouldn't hesitate booking this restraunt again. It is so close to Playhouse and had quite a selection of choice on the pre-theatre menu. Well Done again to the lady who took us through to correct place your welcome was amazing.

Were there to celebrate a birthday and could have not done any better! They made an amazing chocolate cake on request only two days in advance. The service was amazing and the waitress literally said “anything is possible” when I asked for a mocktail (as pregnant) which they didn’t have on the menu. The food was just so amazing that we asked for the leftovers to be packed for us, could not leave it there. 100/100 would recommend!
