About Us

Marco & Carl is a Muslim family owned Halal Restaurant. We use the freshest ingredients available to us to create traditional Italian dishes with a modern twist that will leave you wanting more.

Our stylish restaurants offers lots of traditional and modern dishes. Diners can choose from Stone Baked Pizzas, Freshly Prepared Pastas, Matured Steaks and Hand Crafted Burgers.

Our idea is really simple, buy fresh ingredients, make the food to order so diners leave wanting more! Develop a menu that brings a smile to your face as you taste our dishes for the first time.

You don't need to have a meal to pay a visit. Marco & Carl is a great place to meet friends, have few drinks, treats and even a great spot to have a coffee and relax.


The Story

We originally just wanted to open a small takeaway for somewhere that could offer good quality food that we would be happy for our family to eat from, one thing led to another and before you knew it we had a restaurant on our hands!

Our restaurant started by offering the very best Stone Baked Pizzas and Hand Crafted Burgers, not being satisfied we wanted to build on the success, now we also serve freshly prepared Pastas and Matured Steaks. We are always striving to improve by developing on new ideas and trends, watch out for these in our specials section.

Who's Marco & Carl?

Sshhh it's a secret. We struggled to come up with a name so left it to our daughters Zulekha and Fiza to suggest an Italian and an American name, and so Marco & Carl was born.

Our passion for excellence doesn't stop in the kitchen, when you enter our restaurants you are greeted with high end interior design and a warm friendly welcome.

We may have grown but we will always be a family business that treats each of its diners as friends and family.

Stay tuned for a Marco & Carl opening near you soon!

Halal Certified

Marco & Carl is owned by a sunni muslim family and so 'halal' is very important to us. We only serve halal food at our restaurants and no alcohol is allowed on site.

The most frequently asked question is 'is your chicken non stunned?' the answer 'YES'. All the purchasing is supervised by our family, for further assurance for our diners we are also certified by HMB.

The Halal Monitoring Board is a non-profit making organisation, based in the heart of Birmingham, whose main aim is to certify the production of genuine halal food. HMB complies with the UK Laws for food production, as well as Islamic dietary compliance Laws.
