This place has been here for years & I remember it well from my younger days. The service was great & we even got moved to a better table as our waitress realised we were getting bashed every time people passed by. We shared a large pizza, plenty for two but the chicken was very dry & there was way... More

Two of my colleagues and I ate here before watching a play as part of the Festival. We had elected to eat somewhere in the Grassmarket and walked up and down indecisively a few times before settling on Mamma's, even though I'm not sure any of us were really that up for pizza. We chose to sit outside, reasoning that... More

We went to Mamma's restaurant today after visiting the castle, largely on the basis of seeing that it looked after coeliacs well. On arrival we discovered that we're only a few items you couldn't have - quite the reverse of usual! The service was very friendly and the kids loved it. Would recommend to all.

We arrived 8pm on Sunday night. We were seated straight away. My partner ordered garlic bread with mozzarella. It was an uncooked baguette type thing cold in the middle with cheddar sprinklings and the cheese was in one lump and had grease and dirt from the fryer. I ordered the sweet chilli fries, but they had a hair in them.... More

Was at Mammas yesterday for dinner with 9 other friends while in Edinburgh enjoying the Fringe Festival. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the restaurant was extremely busy inside and outdoors. We sat outside enjoying the grass market area however the tables are crammed close together and the seats are not the best. We ordered some starters to... More

Great service with lots of gluten-free options rather than a token bland item on the menu. My partner had an excellent gluten - free pizza and she enjoyed gluten - free chocolate brownie and ice cream after. I had gluten - free chilli with nachos. All excellent and good value for the location in the middle of The Fringe Festival.
