Italian Restaurants in Glasgow
1. Battlefield Rest Scottish restaurant in Glasgow 55 Battlefield Road - G42
A 1914 landmark (a scenic-looking former tram stop) houses this “homely Italian” on the Southside. That it’s “a bit cramped when busy” is the worst anyone has to say of it – it’s consistently praised as a “cheap ’n’ cheerful” local favourite. On the menu, pizza, pasta and gelati alongside a few nourishing mains (pork Milano, beef cheek pie, risotto…)
2. Celentano's Italian restaurant in Glasgow 109 John Knox Street - G4
2022 Review: Native Glaswegian Anna Parker and her chef-husband Dan (ex-head chef of London’s Darby’s and The Dairy) launched this city-centre newcomer in August 2021. It occupies the Scottish Baronial landmark, ‘Cathedral House’, with a restaurant seating 32 and a covered garden seating 40. The seasonal menu is Italian-inspired and ambitious: from home-cured salamis to almond milk gelato.
3. Paesano Pizza Italian restaurant in Glasgow 94 Miller Street - G1
“You don’t have to go to Naples” to find “great, reasonably priced pizza and excellent ice cream”. This “very buzzy place in the centre of Glasgow” is “setting the standard for great, no-frills pizza”. There is a second branch in the city’s West End, and owner Paul Stevenson also runs pasta specialist Sugo.
4. Banca di Roma Italian restaurant in Glasgow 31 Royal Exchange Square - G1
Brothers Antonio, Pasquale and Simone Cozzolino bring a taste of Mount Vesuvius to the Glasgow Royal Exchange Building, having frown up on the family's tomato farm in the shadow of the volcano on the Bay of Naples. They have big-city finesse, too, having worked for Francesco Mazzei at Sartoria in London's Mayfair.
