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.

    They managed to seat us in the upstairs room which was much appreciated as we always like it there and had requested this on the initial reservation. It was busy but food was brought to us in adequate time and it was reasonably priced.

    We were a party of four for a late lunch. The front of house service was amazing. Friendly, welcoming and with a good sense of humour, which appealed to our party. The food was fantastic, hot and plentiful. My only complaint, is that we live in glasgow, and can't go more often.

    Lovely restaurant which we chose due to proximity to the Playhouse. Service was very good, and they were very busy due to the Festival, but nothing suffered. All the courses were very tasty and they left out one ingredient at my request. Good portion sizes, just the right amount. Nice atmosphere and not too loud despite every seat being taken. Would definitely go again.

    I had a half pizza, half pasta combination . The chicken on the pizza looked like it was processed and was warm at best . The lasagne was sadly a poor imitation of the dish it should be ; low on meat and decidedly mushy . Not the best !!

    Service from staff excellent. Inititally put into an overspill adjacent section of the restaurant which completly differed from the first and tended to reflect a nice cafe than a restaurant. Starter was lovely the fried calamari and prawns. Mains differed alot. Seafood platter def not worth a £30 price tag. Prawns didnt taste fresh and wasnt much left once shells were removed. Some fish pieces looked like they had seen better days. The veal wasnt really tender either. Alot of times in an Italian restaurant you get a complimentry lemon Vermicelli at the end of the meal. We had to pay approx £4.50 for a tiny amount that reflected it was measured in a thi.ble almost. Def wont be back.

    From the moment we walked through the door, we were made to feel welcome. There was a lovely atmosphere. The menu (food and drink) was amazing and very reasonably priced. The portions were generous and the food/flavours AMAZING! I would recommend anyone to go there, it is an absolute must. The staff could not be more attentive (some of them very funny/humorous) a great night out

    Have visited this restaurant over the years and all has been good, on this occasion it was spoilt by a table of screaming kids and loud parents asked waiters to calm them down a bit as it was spoiling my wife's 70th birthday meal (she Italian) he refused to do so, they were dressed in shorts and flipflops and vests with caps on back to front the dress standards have fallen as every one else smart. We left before finishing our meal very disappointing next time up in Edinburgh will find another restaurant.
