Pre/post Theatre
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 are at this restaurant that was recommended to us by a receptionist at our Hotel which was across the road from Mama Rosa three nights running during our stay in Edinburgh. Food was delicious and good portion sizes. Staff were very attentive and welcomed us as old friends on the second & third nights. Thank-you to the staff operating in the lower part of the restaurant you made our stay in Edinburgh very special.

Gorgeous food and experience at Mamma Roma. Fantastic service and quick delivery of food. Food is outstanding quality and very Italian including the Aperol Spritz drink I ordered which tasted like it does when I’ve been to Italy. The pizza was divine and my boyfriend really enjoyed the garlic bread. This is our second time visiting and we hope to continue to visit whenever we come in Edinburgh. The cheesecake was gorgeous too!

Surprise visit from family from England.
The staff were great and supplied high chair as requested as well as children’s menu. They coped well with 3 under 5 year old boys.
Food was great we actually had the table longer they expected.
We managed to receive deal of eating out our bill was so reasonable.
I would recommend this restaurant to families with small children.
Also for couples too.
We will recommend to friends and family.

This was the second time I have dined here. My brother and I really enjoyed our meal, everything was absolutely delicious. There was a nice relaxed atmosphere and it wasn't at all noisy. The service was great and the strawberry cheesecake was gorgeous. I am very much looking forward to my next visit, which I hope is very soon.

Friendly staff with quick and efficient service. Some dishes were very good, with 2 great starters the mussels and the king scallops, but the staple spaghetti carbonara lacked flavour and was disappointing. Our daughter was WOWed by the calzone pizza and my husband's chicken stuffed with asparagus was delicious. A tip...go for the more unusual dishes and you will not be disappointed. The traditional tiramisu was very nice too.

Lovely restaurant with two sides.
I marked down on ambience as the side I sat at was very basic and had people waiting on takeaway. So would ask to sit on the right as you go in.
Food and service was perfect though and would go back. Good choice too.

Sat in the downstairs restaurant which actually looked like a proper italinan restaurant rather than what we think an Italian restaurant should look like. Loved the decor and the atmosphere. I had chicken Milanese which was delicious. Sometimes the chicken can be quite bland in places but that was not the case at Mamma Roma, the accompanying pasta was very tasty too. Husband had the mixed grill. The taste from the chargrill was outstanding! Also had a focaccia piccante that was great too. The service was top notch, servers couldn’t have made you feel any more welcome. Every time I’m in Edinburgh now I’ll be booking Mamma Roma

We booked a table here for our wedding anniversary, upon arriving we were taken away from the main restaurant to next door which we both remarked was like being in a cafe, this wasn't what I was expecting when I booked. But the food & service were both excellent
