Everything we have eaten on this trip has been fresh and made to order. This wasn't. The pizza crust tastes frozen and the meatballs were overcooked and the size of big erasers. Hated it.More

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

Description
Mamma’s has been serving the good people of Edinburgh the very finest of American pizzas since its opening in 1985. Mamma’s is proud to boast that we were Scotland’s first pizza delivery restaurant, we won the Best Independent Pizza Award in 2000-2001, were the Best Pizza Finalist with the Dine In Awards, and won the PAPA Scottish Regional Heat in 2017 for our fabulous pizza. Our warm and welcoming restaurant is now owned by our dynamic-duo, Paul and Caitriona, who married after meeting each other at Mamma’s. Despite working together for many years, they are still making delicious American dishes and more importantly still talking to each other, so dining really is at the heart of what we do! We are proud to be an independent old school pizza restaurant with lots of memories to share <3
