About Battlefield Rest
Lovely Italian food in a relaxed and comfortable setting
We booked here for a late Valentine's meal and it was our first time eating here. The food was fresh and tasty. There were lots of choices on the pre-theatre menu which was great. Friendly, fast service too. Would recommend.
Can’t wait to go back great food and service
Had a fantastic meal, staff were very tentative and the food was amazing
Italian trattoria by Hampden Park
Originally a tram station and dating back to 1915, Battlefield Rest is now a popular, family-run Italian restaurant on Battlefield Road. A B-listed building on a traffic island, its unique looks and interior have long endeared it to local residents and it is fair to say that it is something of a local landmark. Well loved, it is the sort of welcoming and familiar Italian bistro that every neighbourhood should have.
Scots Italian menu
The menus at Battlefield Rest are a comforting mix of Italian recipes and Scottish produce. From the lunch and pre-theatre menus to the a la carte, there is a wide range of classic Italian dishes along with lots of Caledonian flourishes. Typical examples include the haggis cannelloni, the Arbroath smokie crepe and the salad made with Stornoway black pudding.
More traditional Italian options include the selection of bruschetta, the pizza, risotto, the pork Milanese and pasta such as the spaghetti carbonara, lasagne and the nettle papardelle with asparagus. Seafood choices include hake on a squid ink linguine and a hearty stew made with mussels, salmon, cod calamari and clams.
