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 a family of 4 (parents and 2 teenagers) staying in Edinburgh for a short break. We wanted a traditional Italian restaurant not too formal. Mamma Rosa fitted this. Also prompt friendly service, good sized pasta portions and the pizza was great. I would highly recommend.

We booked for a table of 3, myself and 2 children.
Service very good and food delicious
My only complaint is that a table of more than 10 people come in and there was no adherence to socially distancing. They were blocking the way out and and generally quite noisy and not respectful of other people’s personal space.
Would come back but not until we are further out of this situation

Food is outstanding, plenty of choice and when we even managed to find something that wasn’t on the mains list it wasn’t a problem. Service matches the food for every single server that was working, great with my nephew and had really high standards of hygiene. Will defo be back :)

Enjoyed our meal here. Food was nice. Meatballs to start were slightly over done but still enjoyable. Was very bright and quiet inside - lacked a certain ambience but overall nice meal and experience. Staff were polite.

Just like Mamma used to make. Food was really tasty and a good reminder that nothing beats a 'real' Italian meal. Totally hit the spot after lockdown- definitely worth waiting for.

A Birthday treat, the food was delicious. Staff were very attentive without being intrusive, put a candle on the desert & sang “Happy Birthday!”, which made for a lovely experience. Would Highly Recommend!

We had a beautiful birthday dinner for our 12yo. Thanks for looking after us and for the rousing rendition of happy birthday from staff and customers. My daughter was delighted. This was our first meal out since lockdown and it felt very organised clean and safe.

Amazing food, amazing service. Absolutely no faults. Would come back again! We didn’t finish our meals because the bread platter starter was so good, but staff boxed it up for us which was appreciated. Love it here and want to return asap.

Did very nicely for me and my 8yo, although his eyes were bigger than his stomach. Steak was nicely cooked, the boy’s pizza looked delicious and was a decent size. Splendid cheesecake!

The special I was advised was scampi and I was not warmed that I'd need nutcrackers and another implement to get into them. Eventually the waiter offered to take them back for the chef to do but left the linguine to go cold in front of me. The amount of scampi that came back was a table spoon full! Husbands steak was rare and not medium rare, cannelloni portion was pretty small. Starter nice. Sticky toffee pudding over cooked.

I would like to begin by saying that I am sorry that we did not state that the Scampi would come whole, we should have specified that. However, I, the owner, personally offered to clean them for you and did so myself. After, I asked if everything was fine multiple times to which everyone replied to saying that the food was delicious. I would appreciate it if next time perhaps you would have brought up all these issues while there so we could have remedied them rather than online afterwards.

We were a family of 5. Our table was ready on time and we felt very safe with all of the measure which had been put in place. The choice on the menu was fabulous and food was great. We didn’t have to wait too long for each course. The staff were very attentive. We would definitely recommend and rebook when we return to Edinburgh.

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.
