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.

    I booked a table for 3 people around lunchtime. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The wait for the food was not too long but when the dishes arrived they had clearly been sitting on the pass for a while. My pasta dish had an obvious skin on it which you do not get from freshly plated food. It was a shame as I expected more from reading the reviews.

    Food was good, we ordered the bruschetta and liked that a lot. The service seemed to be somewhat slow, but not horrible. We would eat there again.

    We were attending a show and had limited time and the waitress recognising that advised us that to have our choice of mains the chef would need to start preparation right away. She was very friendly and very attentive and very professional. The food turned out to be excellent and we left with adequate time to get to the show.

    Overall we enjoyed, had a lovely seafood risotto and my friend had lasagna which unfortunately had a burnt layer of pasta but the rest of the dish she enjoyed. (The Italians like it that way apparently when we commented!) Didn’t get the correct focaccia either but it was still nice. We were lucky as we were one of the first tables in as a later table nearly walked out they waited that long to be served. We would go back as we did enjoy but a busy Saturday evening may not be the best time!

    Authentic italian restaurant, fresh and carefully prepared dishes backed up with friendly and efficient service. Restaurant a little cramped with folk waiting for tablesfilling the bar area the only downside. Once seated this isn't an issue though. Really good value for a city centre restaurant, would return and revommend.

    The food was really good but I felt the service let the meal down. It took at least 15 minutes for a waiter to ask us what we wanted to drink and around the same to order food. It felt like we were forgotten about and people who arrived after us for there meal were being served quicker. Having to actually get out my seat and ask the waiter for water when our drinks had been empty for over 10 minutes into eating our main was quite poor I felt. Also asking for the desert menu and then having to get someone’s attention to ask for it again summed the service that night up. Food was outstanding but I recommend the service is improved and provided evenly instead of tables that are closer to the kitchen being served 1st regardless of length of time they’ve waited.

    A very good Italian restaurant at the top of Leith Walk very handy if attending the Playhouse Theatre and close to Princes Street. There is an excellent choice of dishes to suit all tastes, my partner is vegetarian and she was pleased by the number of dishes she could chose from. The food was excellent, tasty and well presented at a reasonable cost considering how popular this restaurant is. Service was efficient and pleasant. One small grouse is they don't have a good choice of ciders but this is a minor detail and goes for numerous restaurants.
