About Battlefield Rest
Italian Bistro 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, pizza, risotto, pork Milanese and pasta such as the chestnut tagliolini, lasagne and the nettle papardelle with asparagus. Seafood choices include cod gnocchi and a hearty stew made with mussels, salmon, cod calamari and clams.
Mount Florida transport and attractions

excellent ... as usual
Best restaurant in the Southside - great food, excellent service and great atmosphere despite the Covid-19 restrictions.
Always an excellent meal at Battlefield Rest. No exceptions! Great service, delicious food and wonderful atmosphere!
Although it was the last night before shut down I felt the lady who received us was very harsh . Throughout our evening we were ignored and we were looking forward to a desert . At no point were we asked if we’d like anything more 1.5 hrs later. The same lady who appeared to be in charge also couldn’t remember which table to give the bill too. No one said thank you to us or goodbye . Other people who were obviously more regular were treated very differently. We at no point complained in fact we engaged sympathetically with the waiting staff . The younger girl was very helpful and friendly . We have been a few times before and it’s always been lovely . We will give it one more go when it reopens .
Fresh food, beautiful restaurant.
Great restaurant. Food fab as always.
Another excellent evening thoroughly enjoyable
Food is delicious. Service is disappointing and very rushed. Only go to battlefield rest for the amazing food, not the substandard service
Thoroughly enjoyed the massive pizza. Took some home and ate it later and next day. Still delicious. Friend had 2 courses and she enjoyed spag bol followed by crumble. All tasty.
Battlefield Rest has been our favourite restaurant for many years. Thank you all!
