Marocco's is famous for its ice cream and there is usually a queue of people buying a cone to take away. It looks more like a cafe inside but the food is excellent. We had lunch here while in Hove and it was one of the best Italian meals I've had in a long time. I had Spaghetti Marinara made... More

Having previously written a review about the terrible service and drab food, I was forced to revisit due to friends dragging me there... Well, I can confirm that nothing has changed. Still surly and rude, like the tone of Nev in response to the reviews he doesn't like. Don't waste your time and money, there are plenty of good places... More

Went with friends and had the seafood platter, was really good but too much. Book because it gets really busy. Highly recommended. Ice cream is nice as well.

Having stopped by at the weekend for the most amazing ice cream i have tasted outside of Italy, we decided to go for dinner....amazing! The calamari was to die for, and the pasta..well, the only complaint we had was the portions..far too much. Next time will order a starter each and a main to share. Couldn't even squeeze in another... More

We Were looking forward to eating at this restaurant as the menu looked so good, but such a disappointment! Fish soup, the squid was so tough it was inedible Spaghetti alle vongole, I eat a lot of pasta but this was SO aldente (uncooked and tasteless), the clams were gritty. My husband had sea bass with chips and the chips... More

Dear Birdsong Thank you for your review, looking through your other reviews, it seems that every restaurant that you've visited is terrible, apart from Pizza Express of course. What I'm surprised about is that you obviously took time to read the menu, perhaps you missed the large section that states very clearly "If you believe there is a problem with... More

Absolutely superb ice-cream with so many different flavours - we settled for the Caramel and the Honeycomb which were just the ticket on a very hot evening. Will try the restarant on our next visit as seemed very popular.

This is a fantastic place, recommended by friends who lived in Hove. It is near the brach and the whole day busy with people buying ice creams, ordering take aways and queuing for a table. We made a reservation which came in handy. I had a fantastic seafood spaghetti which had lots and lots of fresh seafood. Good taste, fresh... More
