Very tasty pizza

This is a popular pizza restaurant so I'm glad my daughter and I went early. The tables are very close together but this adds to the friendly feel. We had a cheese and mushroom pizza and it was delicious. The tomato sauce on the pizza is a little on the peppery side but I enjoyed that, not sure if... read more

We were looking for a pizza restaurant and chose Mamma's because of it's good reviews, but were pretty disappointed with the quality of the food and the service. The pizza bases were overcooked and the chicken on top was dry as a bone, which was a shame because the sauce was very tasty. The place wasn't very busy but staff... More

Came for a quick bite here as it was near our hotel. Food came quickly and they not only catered to my boyfriend's gluten intolerance but they helped point out when he did order something that was not gluten free just incase he didn't notice. Food was good. It was pretty much exactly what you would expect. We enjoyed the... More

Visit here every year when we visit Edinburgh, been coming for about 15 years, the place never changes thankfully! Never been dissapointed with a pizza yet, you can say exactly what you want on your custom made pizza so always freshly made. Also good speedy service in this quirky little restaurant.

Let's start with the basics. Mamma's has excellent gluten-free pizza, beer, and more. But they really understand gluten! The owner has another restaurant just 50 meters away, and he said to not go there since he has just acquired it and, while he can say that the ingredients are gluten-free he cannot yet say that there is no cross-contamination. The... More

Stone baked gluten free crust. Best pizza we ate while we were in the UK. Like most places in Grassmarket, the shop is small with tables jammed together but friendly and good food.

Having lived in the states for a number of years, I grew to love the generous, gooey pizza offered that side of the pond. Whilst the more traditional Italian pizzas are lovely, Mamma's delivers a really good pizza experience true to the homely name. Although I was tempted to have a whole one to myself, in the end my girlfriend... More

The Apex City Hotel, across the road recommended Mamma's for good pizza as we were starving when we got there. The nachos and pizza were ok, satisfied our hunger but the service was slow as the wait staff were changing shifts.

As an American expat in Europe, I've grown accustomed to the usual Naples style pizza typically served at restaurants. Mamma's was a nice change from the usual with a slightly thicker crust and a bit more sauce than I normally see. The sauce has a nice, slightly spicy flavor and the toppings are generous. My only complaint is the length... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
