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.

Excellent service and delicious pasta dishes. Cheesecake for dessert was a little disappointing being rather bland but overall I would definitely go back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service on New Year's Eve. The staff welcomed us and treated us like regular customers -- we really felt at home. And the food was delicious! A great way to cap off our visit to Edinburgh and celebrate New Year's Eve with our friends and families. Thank you!

Visited prior to seeing the Lion King at the Playhouse, couldn't be more convenient, right across the road. We had our grand kids with us. Great kids menu and big portions. Staff were very friendly and courteous. I couldn't fault anything.

Visiting from out of town and read all of the fabulous reviews. This is very much a family and friends establishment. The service was fine, if a little abrupt. The food was ok- not bad, but not terrific. The shrimp with Marie Rose sauce was way overdressed; the rocket salad standard fare. The lasagne was too gloppy so that the flavors and texture of the noodles and filling were masked.

On holiday for Christmas in Edinburgh and used Google Maps and Trip Advisor to find an Italian restaurant on Leith Walk near where we were staying and chose Mamma Roma. Booked on line very simply and was very pleased with our experience. We were treated like long standing customers even though this was our first visit. Love the wall art murals which add to the ambiance.
