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 went to this restaurant based on great feedback I had read on the internet and couldn’t have been more impressed. It was my husband birthday and the staff were absolutely fantastic, friendly attentive and made a real fuss of him. The food was beautiful and we had a really great evening. This place is a gem and I would whole heartedly recommend.

Traditional, authentic and tasty! We were 2 couples out for a great evening, and we definitely got that. The staff are fantastic, funny and really make you feel like you're part of the family. Thoroughly recommend if you're looking for great food in a semi-casual environment served by great people!

Main courses brought to table whilst still eating our starters. My daughter's carbonara was swimming in oil and when her sticky toffee pudding was brought, it had clearly been left in the microwave and was rock hard. Very poor service and food. Extremely dissapointing.

Great food, amazing service as always. A bit disappointed when i arrived as i booked for the restaurant upstairs and they put me in the bar. I have been in this part of the restaurant many times for lunch and i wanted to try the upstairs one... despite of this, everything was good...I highly recommended, just i would like them to acomodate in the place you already booked.

We had a pre-theatre dinner and it was absolutely delicious. I can highly recommend their signature chicken dish. Lovely staff, so friendly with great sense of humour. Although we didn’t use it on this occasion, their pre-theatre set menu looked lovely and is excellent value. Can highly recommend Mamma Roma’s, we would never go anywhere else if we’re seeing something at the Play House.

Lovely food, excellent service, staff lovely would def eat here again next time we’re in Edinburgh.

Whilst there the manager had to deal with very difficult/trouble making people who were horrendous and he was brilliant under very difficult circumstances, very aware of the effect on all the other customers and did his very best to control the situation the man deserves a medal!

We were downstairs and, at first, it was cold as the door was open and there were very few diners. It felt like it was an overflow room for when the main restaurant gets busy. However, as more people came in it felt more friendly and inviting and the door was then closed.

The staff were very friendly and we felt really welcome.

The meal was delicious apart from the sticky toffee pudding.

We would definitely come back.
