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 found the background music far too loud. But, I'm glad to say, when I asked for it to be turned down, it WAS turned down and it was turned well down. Many thanks for that.

When the restaurant is pretty full, the noise level from people talking is considerable. So it seems to me there is not much point in having background music at all. Some restaurants I know will turn the music up even louder, with the result that people talk louder to make themselves heard and the result is a dreadful cacophony which ruins the pleasure of meeting friends over a meal.

We had the pre-theatre menu, food was amazing and value for money, staff were lovely and attentive also, nothing was too much bother for them as one of the party could only eat a small portion so this was accommodated for no problem at all :)

Good food from an extensive menu. Great choice of drinks and friendly efficient service. Great restaurant for groups and friends but not so good for a quiet dinner or for a romantic meal as the tables are very close together and their is a lively atmosphere

Started off okay however after our starters we waited almost an hour for our mains. We were told this delay was due to there being a party of 26 children downstairs. However there were at least two tables who came in after us but were served long before we were (one person had a Calzone which I had ordered before him). When the food arrived my Calzone was terrible ie was rock hard suggesting it had been sitting a while. This was a family meal out for my sister who had visited from Australia. I felt bad because it was me who booked the table as I had eaten there before without any issues. I said nothing at the time as I didn't want to spoil our evening any more than it already had been by the poor service.

Excellent food and service that exceeded our expectations in every way! We had the veal and hand made Stringolini pasta with meatballs (best meatballs - small with little or no filler) as main course and shared the house made Tiramisu for dessert (also delicious!). Ask for Lucas or Roberto - attentive, fun, interesting to talk with, and Lucas shared great site-seeing tips!

This is a good neighbourhood Italian, but unfortunately on the night that we visited we were served raw chicken. It was taken away and recooked but this took some time by which stage we had rather lost our enthusiasm for the evening. When it finally arrived back the food was good but it all took too long and an apology would not have gone amiss.

Only criticism would be the deserts which were a little disappointing and lacking in flavour

Enjoyed the food. Two of our servers were short and pretty rude. The third server was a lot more friendly. Not sure if it was due to bias (we are Gay and an Asian-white couple) or their typical demeanor.
