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.

Food and service was great. The wait staff helped our table try a couple of new to us dishes, the recommendations were great. Other than the room being a little on the warm side, it was a great dinning experience! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great Italian meal!

Took my 80 year old mum and aunt to Edinburgh playhouse and had a meal here first. The staff were really friendly and attentive which created a nice atmosphere right away. The food was lovely and during our conversation the waitress must have realised it was my mums 80th birthday and they brought her dessert with a candle and the staff and customers all sang happy birthday which was lovely. When we were leaving they followed us out the restaurant to wish us a good evening and wished my mum a happy birthday again at which point a table of young people outside all sang happy birthday too. It really made her night before crossing the street to her concert at the playhouse. I can’t thank them enough for their kindness. It really did make her night. We would definitely go back again.

The food was very poor, I was served a very small portion, I asked for a little more sauce and was charged extra l. The service was not good and it is not value for money. When food arrived we wished we left and went some where else.
We complained about it and they said were rude to us.
I would never go back there and would never recommend it.
In side the restaurant looks out dated.
The servers looked very weird and strange.

Waitor was amazing, really funny and chatty. Had great recommendations of food and drinks & helped us with pronouncing the name of the food.

The food was great value for money, large portions for the amount you pay. The staff are happy to compensate and change orders if you dislike what is included or have any allergies.

Would recommend to anyone who like Italian and it is very close to the centre of town

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.

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.
