My brother and I chose this restaurant because it has a good reputation for gluten free options. We were so pleased we decided to eat there. Our GF pizzas were delicious and really good value. The service was great and we will definitely eat there again next time we are in Edinburgh.

Staying in Edinburgh with my son during half term as a teenager he did not want to eat somewhere that was Valentine's Day commercialised. This restaurant was directly across from our hotel so we decided to visit. The food was excellent and reasonably priced and the staff where friendly and attentive. Ideal place for families to eat. Plus it is... More

An American styled Italian cuisine restaurant (pizzeria) with a Canadian waitress and Polish cheffs. I had a fairly big glutenfree pizza with toooons of cheese. I ordered a double cheese and could barely eat a half of it. Great experience.

We got fed up off walking around looking for a restaurant and stumbled on this place and decided it looked good enough. Walked in and straight away staff seemed really friendly then BOOM, after being told we could sit where we wanted my partner slipped and ended up sitting on the floor. She had seriously hurt an already injured knee.... More

Popped in on a whim with a colleague. Chap was very helpful, honest and chatty and happy to accommodate my indecisiveness in ordering. I opted for gf pizza and was not disappointed, base was delish as were the toppings; artichoke, salmon, banana, olives and jalapeño. I would definitely be a regular if I lived locally.

My partner and I visited here in January 2017. We had been on a health kick and really fancied a pizza. After reading the reviews, we thought we would give mammas a try! Upon arrival the member of staff wasn't very friendly and grunted that our table was over in the corner. Someone came to take our order and our... More

We'd been to Mamas several years ago and remember the good quality pizzas. We were in the extremely busy Grassmarket the week before Christmas and the atmosphere was excellent. We had a late (9:30pm) reservation. Just wanting pizza, we quickly ordered. The pizza choice is vast with a build your own section. We'd opted for a pizza with spicy meat... 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.
