Good change from typical euro pizza

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... read more

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.

I came here today with my boyfriend and had a lovely pizza. He's been coming here with his family for years and it's his favourite place for pizza. I really enjoyed it today. I had a pizza with goats cheese and red onion marmalade and I asked them to add chorizo.. it was very enjoyable and good value for money.... More

Visited this restaurant after my partner and I had spent the day wandering around Edinburgh. We were walking up and down the Grassmarket, pondering the large choice of restaurants and having a quick read of TripAdvisor reviews. As we are both pizza lovers and the reviews for this place seemed to be fairly good, we decided to step in. Staff... More

Lovely friendly staff, quick service even though they were busy, the gluten free pizza was so tasty best I've tasted.

I had the unenviable task of planning dinner for 14 (including three children under the age of 10) with half an hour's notice... But I was welcomed with a smile and a can-do attitude at Mamma's. I returned 20min later to find that the table was ready, water already on the table, three kid colouring kits and menus on the... More

I have frequented Mamma's intermittently over a number of years and and am not sure that I would go back. I am intrigued by the recent reviews. On the Saturday early evening that we visited, the Grassmarket was at its worst. A number of hen and stag parties were parading along the street before, during and after our meal. The... More

Hi James Thank you for your feedback, which in fairness is a little inconsistent also. Unfortunately, we are unable to do anything about the Hen and Stag parties that frequent the whole of the City Centre. Being from Edinburgh I am sure you are well aware of this as it has been well documented over the years, a Bank Holiday... 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.
