It has been some years since I last ate at Mamma's with my children. Tonight I was there with a couple of work friends. As I remembered, the pizza was lovely with a huge choice of toppings. But the evening was made for me, when I was presented with a surprise brownie with a candle and ice cream. The thoughtful... More

Visited Mamma's in December on a whim due to me being gluten intolerant and I can safely say this was the best gluten free pizza I have ever had. In addition to this the staff were lovely and helpful and the food came very quickly, couldn't fault them at all. I will definitely 100% be back.

Have gone to Mamma over for over 10 years although not for a while. Well gone down hill is not the word. Worst pizza I have ever had. The base was undercooked the cheese was poor quality and was supposed to be pepperoni which had 5 pieces of poor quality meat on it. What has gone wrong, saving money I... More

Went here at the beginning of January on a visit to the city with my daughter. I am not a big pizza eater, but we didn't want a big fancy meal, most of the menu can be done gluten free and the reviews were good. So we decided to give it a go and we were not disappointed. We ate... More

I came here with friends to escape the snow and we got a warm welcome and were shown straight to a table. Couldn't believe the number of toppings we could choose from! Would love to go back just to try some more. In the end I ordered avocado and black beans for toppings, and the pizza was pretty tasty. The... More

The pizza was pretty good, though the buffalo wings weren't really buffalo wings (didn't really have that tart, spicy flavor). My friend got the calzone, which looked deliciously saucy. It's not quite American, but if you're desperate for American-style food, it'll do. The music was really fun and I liked the atmosphere. Service was good.

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.
