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.

    What an amazing menu. We could easily dine there for weeks on end ! We were a party of 5 and it was clean plates all round. The mixed bruschetta starter was a big hit. Pasta was excellent and the person who had the veal was full to bursting. Staff were very welcoming and helpful.

    The staff were all very welcoming and kind. The meal was absolutely delicious. The carbonara was it has to be said, genuinely, one of the best I've ever eaten. Would recommend without hesitation and indeed already have to family and friends. Location to Edinburgh Playhouse is perfect. 5 stars overall.

    I loved the relaxed atmosphere and lovely friendly staff. The food was excellent I had the pan fried monkfish (Coda di Rospo alla Siciliana) and my daughter had one of Mammas favourites, a seafood pasta (Linguine Saporite). Both were faultless. We had a shared starter and both had desserts and two drinks each, all at a very reasonable cost. We had a lovely time and will definitely return to Mamma Roma when we next visit Edinburgh.

    We stopped for an early lunch before leaving Edinburgh and it was lovely! The service was brilliant, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, we both ordered pasta dishes and the sauces were amazing. The setting was calm and relaxing and very clean. I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Edinburgh and would visit again if we return.

    We did the 3 course pre-theatre menu for £25. Good value and a good choice of dishes. The mussels were nice as a starter. The pork collar was so tough and overcooked I could barely cut it. Also a tiny, tiny amount of meat, no more than 3 mouthfuls. The lasagna was good but super dense. A good serving of the fish of the day salmon. The chocolate mousse was so rich with cocoa powder it just tasted powdery and none of us ate much of it. There was a loud high pitched screech from I assume a coffee machine that went off every 30 seconds or so and was very distracting. Service was good and if you are going to the Playhouses it’s a good option.
