Mamma Roma Ristorante
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.
Great service, we had a lovely evening. There was a large selection of Italian food which suited us as our party included 2 fussy vegetarians. Well priced, good location.
Went to Mamma Roma for the first time, and absolutely loved it! The food was amazing, and fresh, and The service was amazing too. All of the staff were lovely, but there was one young lady in particular who was fantastic when serving my dad and me. I wish I knew her name, because her service was brilliant! Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back again.
Meal was totally amazing! Will certainly visit again
Great lunch here this week. The meal was excellent and would certainly go again. Good, friendly service.
We dined here sunday evening as a family of 4. The service was very attentive however the main course left us slightly disappointed. Starters were enjoyable - garlic breads and a sharing platter, however for mains we ordered 2 steaks a chicken and a pasta dish. The only hot dish was the pasta - the meat dishes were warm and I asked if I could swap potatoes for chips and they brought me both and charged extra for the chips. The restaurant was very nice and cosy but I'm not sure we will go again.
Lovely meal and service food was lovely too will definitely be back
Great , little restaurant. Great value pre theatre deal at £17.95for four courses. Efficient service. Only niggle was that it was a cold night, so every time the main door was opened, we got a blast of chilly air
Staff made us feel so welcome and food was amazing loved this place
Very authentic Italian food with seemingly fresh and tasty ingredients
We came to Edinburgh for the weekend and booked this restaurant in advance based on reviews. The food and service was excellent and so good that we went again on our 2nd night and it was just as good.
good good lovely wine. really handy for Playhouse theatre.
Very attentive staff great food and ideal location for pre theatre meal when attending Playhouse theatre
Love coming to this place before going to the playhouse. Food is always great staff amazing highly recommend this place.
Lovely meal as always, staff very professional, friendly & helpfull
Nice buzz about the place. Lots of choices and tasty too.
Awesome food and great service we had a brilliant evening
Food was very good, the staff was very accomodating too (e.g. off-menu requests and time changes).
Booked for pre show meal, what an excellence meal and the staff were great. If ever in Edinburgh again this restaurant will be on our go to list.
The food came fast and it was very tasty. The service was excellent.
Pre theatre meal was good value. Service was outstanding despite being very busy. Food was delicious!
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.
Brilliant service and excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend
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 :)
The staff was very attentive to my wife and I food was delicious and nice atmosphere.
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
