San Carlo Liverpool to undergo £3.5m makeover 

The Castle Street restaurant will close its doors for 12 weeks in the new year so that work can take place. 

San Carlo will invest £3.5m in upgrading the venue, which opened in 2009. 

The project will see the interior, characterised by bold reds and blacks, striped out and modernised. A new private dining room features in the proposals, designed by Fettle. 

“Our Liverpool venue has held a special place within our group and the city has been so good to us over the years,” said San Carlo managing director Marcello Distefano. 

“We are very excited that Liverpool will be the first of our new-look San Carlo restaurants. Our much-loved venue will undergo a complete facelift, transforming the aesthetic into the most breathtakingly beautiful modern setting.”  

San Carlo Liverpool will reopen in spring. 

San Carlo’s decision to upgrade its Liverpool restaurant follows two recent high-profile restaurant openings in Liverpool.  

Steak restaurants Gaucho and Hawksmoor both opened in November at the former Bank of Liverpool and India Buildings respectively.

Great to see momentum in the Liverpool hospitality industry continuing. This will ensure San Carlo continues to compete with the new Gaucho, Hawksmoor, Martins Bank, etc.

A good time for an upgrade as there`s some major events coming up including in Spring the Grand National, then the Eurovision Song Contest, and the Open Golf at Hoylake, to name a few.
San Carlo is a much loved and atmospheric venue.

I am from Liverpool – but much prefer the ambience of their Manchester Venue. Great if you could make it more like that and capture that atmosphere!
