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.

Pasta just okay. Asked for dessert menu which never came. Staff were pleasant enough. Seated very close to other diners. Quiet old fashioned decor. Nicer Italian restaurants in Edinburgh.

For authentic home cooked Italian food head to Mama Roma’s! Outside of Italy this is some of the best I’ve had. Everything was delicious and the portions are generous but not too much. Highly recommend!

We were greeted by a friendly gentleman who escorted us to our table which was ready at the time requested. Service was friendly and professional throughout the evening. Food was excellent, prepared and presented with care. As a person who is often left disappointed by a dining experience, it was a welcome change to enjoy food and service how it should be. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone and look forward to returning when next in Edinburgh. Well done and thank you.

If this is meant to show how good Scottish produce is it failed. From the starter to the main course was over cooked. I don’t think it is my job to tell the kitchen how to cook the food but the burgers were like rubber.

Poor food and service. Ordered a side salad 3 times only for the lettuce to come back mouldy each time. They still charged us for it - I complained and they removed the charge. They claim the pasta is homemade- it definitely is not.
