Leicester

Welcome to our second restaurant, sited on Granby Street. This time we opted for a mainstream location.

Marco & Carl Leicester is not a theme restaurant but a highly lavish exclusive Italian venue for people who appreciate fine food, good service, luxurious and comfortable surroundings and indeed value for money.

The décor at Marco & Carl Leicester is the perfect setting for a wonderful meal or light bites with friends and family. The restaurant can get very busy, especially at the weekends and although bookings are not always necessary it is advisable to do so.
