It has closed down...the loss of an Edinburgh institution that my family and I used for nearly thirty years

We don't live in Edinburgh but eat at Bar Roma whenever we're in Edinburgh. The food has always been reliably good, the staff helpful and friendly and the buzz on a Friday or Saturday evening tremendous. We will miss it.

We come to Edinburgh every year and always stop at Bat Roma for a meal. We are never disappointed and the same went for this year. The staff are friendly and attentive, despite being very busy. Our food as usual was fresh and tasty. Shame...More

Nothing special, mediocre food, snooty service, Calzone pizza dough was terrible! Salad basic and lack lustre. This place is suitable for hunger emergencies only.

£10 for 2 course lunch, good value. Nice bruschetta & melon & Parma ham but the pizzas had that cheap mozzarella on top. Would pay more to have a top quality pizza. Nothing like the pizzas in Napoli! Used to frequent here years ago but...More

It's unfortunate some people don't appreciate good quality when they see it, because our mozzarella cheese on our pizzas is of the highest quality, and our regular customers praise them highly I can assure you!

I've been to Bar Roma many times over the years, especially during the 1980's. My recent visit fell short of what I remember. I judge a restaurant on how satisfied I feel after three courses and unfortunately...I left feeling hungry. The food was great &...More

Sorry you didn't feel full after your three course meal. Haven't had that complaint before. Glad though that you enjoyed what you had to eat, and thank you for recommending us to others in your review. Best regards.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
