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.

Excellent lunch again - the three of us each had a lovely meal. The Meatballs starter was particularly delicious as was the lasagne for one of the mains, the daily fish special was cod and was cooked perfectly and presented well. The cheesecake for desert was also lovely and our grandson enjoyed an ice cream with chocolate sauce. The service is always customer focused and they go out of their way to make it very welcoming and are attentive throughout the meal. To get a quality 3 course meal for under £11 is truly exceptional- we will be back soon.

Could have used more pasta in the dish ( how much is pasta ?). Also it was supposed to have scallops in it but could only find about 5 tiny pieces of a diced up scallop. Seemed very cheap.

The overall standard of the food is poor. The starters were average, but the mains were not good. My dish of thinly sliced veal stuffed with Parma ham and cheese was marred by the veal being so tough it took a real effort to cut and chew it. I left half of it. My wife's spaghetti carbonara cam as a large plate of pasta with a few bits of (again) very tough ham. It went uneaten. The faults were highlighted to the young waiter who apologised. In fact, one of them gave me my double espresso free as a way of compensating.
Having read all the glittering TripAdvisor reviews of this restaurant, we were very, very disappointed.

Top marks for all the dining aspects as it was difficult to find fault. Would have preferred not to be sat next to the bar, but didn't spoil the experience, Very friendly attentive staff, prompt service and delicious food. Lovely setting, clean and well appointed (and smart modern clean restrooms)

Excellent service from start to finish. Food was fantastic and staff very friendly. Only downside is they only accept gratuity in cash and in this current pandemic card is the preferred payment method.

The food was superb. However, we were seated outside the main restaurant and the ambiance is different from then main restaurant. Me and my husband booked this restaurant to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary because I was in the impression that the restaurant ambience was romantic but we were seated outside, it was okay but not what I expected. I did not bother asking to swap due to corona virus. But food wise it was okay.
