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.

If this is meant to show how good Scottish produce is it failed. From the starter to the main course was over cooked. I don’t think it is my job to tell the kitchen how to cook the food but the burgers were like rubber.

Average at best, the garlic bread is terrible. Penne arrabbiata was almost tasteless

The service and atmosphere was very nice and the waiter was so good and friendly!

The calamari and prawn starter was not the best I have had, a little over priced. The Pasta mains we had were good and they let us amend to our preferences. It comes at a cost to add things to the dish though. The dessert of tiramisu was great! I like how they do medium sized bottle of wines, for those that don’t quite manage a big bottle!

Came here on our first weekend away in Edinburgh, have to say the Spaghetti polpette was the best pasta dish I’ve ever had at an Italian restaurant. The panacotta was delicious as well, we will definitely be coming back again in the future.

I was visiting Edinburgh and fancied a homely Italian meal, this restaurant was nearby and after reading the reviews and seeing pictures of the food decided to try it and I was not disappointed. The welcome here was amazing. The food and the service were on point. Our waiter was very attentive and was very open with suggestions on things we would like. Highly recommend this restaurant. I will definitely be coming back.

Amazing service and food came out fast. We were surprised how cheap the bill was considering the food was outstanding. I’ve never been before and they gave a great first impression. The staff are well mannered and made us feel very welcomed. They’ve made the most out of the space as well and followed Covid rules properly.
I’ll be coming back again to introduce more people to this hidden gem!
