Mamma Roma Ristorante
Loved the pasta and risotto dishes, but the pizza's were deep pan style for both adults and kids, and my husband found it very doughy and didn't enjoy it much. The kids pizza's were gigantic, barely any smaller than the adult pizza's, so they weren't able to finish them.
We dined pre theatre menu, booking through open table we got an excellent window table. We have dined there previously at the same table. We enjoyed the food, the service and the way they looked after our 6 year old on her first theatre visit. I would recommend it to anyone.
Really enjoyed the ambience and the food.
On hand for the Playhouse Theatre and everything worked really well.
A lovely restaurant. Very attentive staff. Food was good. My daughter loved her pizza and the Nutella cheesecake was yummy.
Open til late, great food and service. Location ideal for City Centre & Theatres
Thoroughly recommended. Great service and amazing food. Good for families.
Went there before going to the theatre. Staff friendly. The place was full but food still came quickly and in plenty time for the theatre.
Always reliable for a great plate of Italian. Staff great, service good.
The food was lovely we spent a lot of time here eating and drinking. The price was very reasonable. I will return when back in edinburgh.
Super friendly staff, great food and good value. Ideal for pre theatre
Carbonara was tasteless, lasagne was burnt on the bottom & cold in the middle, think it was pre-cooked & reheated, would not go back.
It was a pleasant enough meal although other people in our party were a bit disappointed with the grilled chicken. The waiters were very friendly but as restaurant got busy and more people came in looking for food they appeared to try rushing us, keen to get us moving which spoiled the experience
Waiting staff very friendly, lovely to chat to. Restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere and large varied menu. Everything sounded delicious, and everything we ordered was. My pizza marinara was out of this world. Real seafood on top, and the taste was just like what you get on holiday abroad. It's hard to find such good pizza in the UK! Thank you, we will return.
Thoroughly enjoyed our pasta dishes, couldn’t fault it.
The pre theatre menu is the best value for money. The choice was not extensive but there’s something to suit all tastes. Service was quick and waiters very attentive.
Prime location for Edinburgh playhouse
Good food with friendly service at very reasonable price, what more do you need ?
it was nice to go into an Italian Ristorante that actually speaks and play Italian music and, Maria who looked after us was very nice and we chatted about what part of Italy her family was from the service was very good as the food would I recommend here a definitely a yes.
Staff were very welcoming and attentive. We had pre theatre menu which was great food and great value.
Incredible service, food and atmosphere! I can’t recommend visiting this restaurant enough! I shall definitely be going back!
Excellent range of food. Very tasty meal and friendly, cheerful staff. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
Easy and delicious. The staff are exceptionally friendly. Will return again and again.
Amazing pizzas, in fact best ever calzone pizza. Really good atmosphere when we visited on a Saturday night.
Really enjoyed my very first visit to Mamma Roma's, very quick service and the lovely young lady who served us our meal more than compensated for the rather sombre and unsmiling men who were serving (although they were very mannerly) they really need to follow the example of the beautiful smiling, warm and friendly young lady they work with.
Would look forward to visiting again, next time I am in Edinburgh.
Excellent service, food was piping hot and time taken between courses was appropriate. We have used this restaurant before and would recommend to anyone. The staff are very polite and ensure your every need is met
Looked around at a few places before booking this restaurant. Very friendly place made to feel very welcome. Food was very good and reasonably priced and only a short walk from Princess street
Lovely food and the staff was very friendly and attentive. The only negative thing I would say is that they need to bring the restaurant up to date, the decor wasn’t very appealing which spoilt the overall experience
This lovely restaurant was recommended by my parents who have gone there for pre theatre dinners. We were not disappointed. My husband was very impressed by his calzone and I would recommend the speciality pasta with prawns, courgettes, garlic and basil. My sons all enjoyed their pizzas which were as good as any you would get in Italy. The garlic bread was also very tasty. The service was excellent, we were very well attended to. Would definitely return.
Was not really overly impressed. Was a bit annoyed when I was informed on arrival that they did not have my booking. I rec,d a reminder about my booking so how would they not have it. Was quite embarrassing in front of my friends.
Not bad, but nothing special.
Very pricey for what it is especially considering none of the pasta is fresh.
Meeting friends from Sweden
Très bon accueil, service agréable et de très bons produits bien cuisinés, je recommande !
A friend and I had a lovely meal here. It was very quiet though even at lunchtime. We were the only diners except towards the end of our lunch another party came in. So the ambience wasn’t as good as it could have been. However we had a three course lunch for £8.95 each!
Best Italian food outside Italy, amazing!! Can't wait to go back
We had a lovely early evening dinner and will certainly be back.
Excellent service and best seafood risotto my wife has ever eaten. Great location for pre-theater dinner
Having booked a table through opentable we turned up at the main restaurant and they did have our reservation but we were escorted downstairs with no explanation to what I would describe as an overflow room and after some consultation with other staff we were told we could sit at a nearby table which was set for three. The waiter then asked if there was only two of us and swiped the third setting away. By this time instead of a good feeling we felt like a nuisance who had just turned up off the street. I cannot fault the service or the meal but they need to learn how to deal with customers better as regards seating. The whole time we were there the door was continually opening and letting in the cold as other diners who came downstairs and were then ushered up and vice versa. I have eaten here twice before but was very disappointed as there was no welcome and we really were made to feel very uncomfortable.
Very slow service. We had to wait too much between dishes. Beside everything was perfect.
Waitstaff was very nice and attentive. The food was delicious. My parents went back again two days later!
Very enjobable night staff duper and brillant food
It was fine overall, nothing spectacular. Decent Italian food but nothing stood out as memorable or worthy of a return visit.
