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.

    Booked in advance as suggested to ensure a good table, on arrival we where shepherd downstairs into what i can only describe as a basement. We where then shown to our table right next to the main door that was propped open for the entire duration of our meal. The starters weren't up to much and luke warm and the mains had no flavour. On a positive note, the wine was quite good and our waitress was attentive and polite.

    Good food as always and staff were very helpful. We would always choose to eat here and the prices are very reasonable too, especially as it’s opposite the theatre and in general is a very busy area. I would recommend that you book in advance to secure a booking as always bern full when we have eaten there.

    What can I say about this fabulous restaurant, I was so glad I booked it a while ago for pre Theatre meal as it was full (A great sign). A lovely warm welcome at the door and shown to our seats on the ground floor level (the Restaurant is split on different levels). The service was first class very friendly and they knew the food inside out even if it was a large menu. The food was first class excellent, if we lived in Edinburgh we would dine here every week it was that good

    We went to Mama Roma for lunch before going to the theatre - 3 min walk away. We were met with a friendly open door and charming staff. We ordered the house red which was delicious and very reasonably priced. The food we ordered came very punctually- a good tell that the restaurant was used to accommodating theatre goers. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and a pleasure to eat. Very reasonably priced and a menu with a lot of variety to choose from without breaking the bank. The restaurant was very relaxed, well aired and comfortable - reqlly glad we found the place. I would highly recommend visiting Mamma Rose if you're ever in town, especially if you're en route the theatre!

    Had a visit last Saturday to a place we've been going on and off for many a year Sadly, the bruschetta bread starter was very bland with none of the usual lovely tomatoes flavour , the tomatoes had no taste The pizza for main also had a base flavour of blandness and just no appeal The service and staff were great but the food was very disappointing

    What to expect from Mamma Roma's, classic Italian's with good food and excellent portion sizes. The reason we went here was due to the location next to the Edinburgh Playhouse, it is directly across from the playhouse. If you are looking for a good Italians, with excellent food and a good menu selection, I would highly recommend Mamma Roma's.

    We had a lunch here for my sons birthday before we saw the lion king. It was out of this world. It felt like proper authentic Italian food. The service was amazing too and the staff were all so friendly. The food was amazing. Would definitely be back when we are next in Edinburgh. Value for money was spot on and plenty choice on the menus! Thank you for a lovely time.

    We had a lovely experience and all enjoyed the food. I ordered steak and it was cooked to perfection. Only minus was my husbands prawn cocktail was served in a metal martini type glass and he found it difficult to get the contents out. Whilst the steak was perfect there was very little veg and potato. Other than that a brilliant choice for dinner. Would definitely return.
