Popped into Mamma's in the Grassmarket for lunch on Thursday. We shared a large pizza between 2 adults and 1 child. The restaurant was quiet. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was nice. Although quite traditional pizzas are served, the restaurant has a strong Tex-Mex theme going too. The restaurant has some outside seating, but as this was a cold... More

Our group of 4 ate here on our recommendation having previously had a great experience, but it was very disappointing this time around. 2 ordered pizzas and both were disappointed and they felt that they were missing any kind of depth of flavour - the same criticism was levelled at the chilli which was labelled on the menu as being...

As I was staying across the road at the Apex, I visited here to grab a takeaway one evening. The staff were friendly, the restaurant looked clean. I had fairly high expectations but this was less of the Italian authentic pizza I was expecting! It was a pretty good solid takeaway pizza, so if you're after something better than domino's... More

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.

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.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood 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-flavoured 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.
