My 3rd visit to a Hawksmoor, excellent as always. Our server left us down a starter of Yorkies, potted beef and bone marrow gravy as he said it might be a while until our steaks came, it was class! Steaks we're perfectly cooked and Pinotage was perfect with them

This experience was outstanding. The food we had included the beef Wellington, steaks, the prawn appetizer, and more… and not one part disappointed. The servers, Chloe and Alistair were attentive and went out of their way to ensure we had a great dining experience. My family of four would recommend this location to anyone looking for an excellent experience and delicious food. Thank you to Bread Street Kitchen and Bar for giving us a great family dining memory!

About the restaurant
Mamma Roma is an authentic Italian restaurant located at 4/7 Antigua Street Edinburgh. Situated very close to the Edinburgh Playhouse, this restaurant is not only great for Pre-Theatre diners but also has a delicious and extensive choice of menus to satisfy all customers. The restaurant can also be found within a 10 minute walk of Princes Street Gardens and a convenient 5 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley train station. Mamma Roma’s restaurant is spread over multiple floors. The main dining area is decorated in Tuscan farmhouse style with paintings and medallions embellishing the walls. Special attention is given to the elaborate list of pasta and pizza delicacies and a bowl of gelato or a plate of tiramisu helps to round off a meal on a savory note.
