About Us

Maranto’s is owned and run by the Maranto family, originally Italian-American, and a dedicated team. We have a love of food, wine, friends, and a knack for putting the three together. That’s probably why Maranto’s has been a Liverpool favourite for more than three decades.

Occupying a Victorian Grade-II listed building, Maranto’s has a unique décor that integrates historical architectural salvage – such as decorative cast iron from railway stations and antique tiffany lamps – in a bright, modern space. Our large, modern restaurant and bars are central to creative, bustling Lark Lane.

With our reliable, hearty, and home cooked menu and our friendly service, we have all the bases covered.  It may be 30 years old but Maranto’s has never been busier. For that, we owe the hundreds of regular customers that walk through our doors every week.

Our history

Lark Lane has been an area of great character ever since it was first noted in a street directory over 125 years ago. During the 19th century the buildings now housing Maranto’s were in use by such diverse occupants as a chemist, a plumbers merchant, hosier and a mission chapel.

During the 20th century it was put to popular use as a cocoa rooms for local workers and their families, a launderette, skating academy and after the great war, as premises for a motor company. A child welfare centre and an antique dealer occupied the building during the “swinging sixties” and, prior to the refurbishment by Maranto’s in 1983, the site was used by a manufacturer of window blinds.

We are proud to be part of Liverpool’s rich history and the community surrounding Lark Lane.
