Went here after a business training morning for an early dinner. Waiting staff were a mix - one young lad was lovely and very smiley - the older Italian gent was a bit rude. The starters we had were good - bruschetta and garlic bread. The mains were so-so. I had risotto and my colleague had tomato pasta. Her pasta... More

Third time here in a year. I love the hugely impressive and well presented seafood platters and of course the ice cream. Pizzas are cheap, stakes delicious and there are good wines on the evolving menu. Here you get an atmosphere hard to replicate. The restaurant is small and the staff do a great job catering for groups and those... More

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Marrocco's for lunch again. The atmosphere was as always buzzing and I was pleased to note that the restaurant owner took time to greet any customer who happened to meet his eye. It is this kind of attention to detail that sets this place aside from the crowd. The waiter who served... More

Having frequently seen how busy this place is for ice cream it wasn't until my family and I had sought refuge here from the cold for a coffee that we noted how popular the restaurant was and noted it as a "must try". Visiting today with friends we were seated quite quickly and found the menu suitably diverse (pizza, pasta,... More

I discovered Marrocco's during my first flat-hunting trip to Hove and what a great place it turned out to be. This is one authentic, irreplaceable meeting place if you want good food in a busy but fun atmosphere. I can thoroughly recommend the pasta marinara - fresh seafood and pasta are my favourite. Recently, my daughter and family visited and... More

Oh, I want to like this place. I really do. But every time I go I find it infuriating. Firstly, let's be positive. The best thing about this restaurant is that is on the seafront. It looks particularly welcoming at night, a brightly lit beacon along a quiet stretch of beach. However, let's get to the nub as to why... More

It's great that this local restaurant has survived for so long and is still retains it's original feel as a simple but impressive family place to eat. We came today with our 2 boys for a birthday meal for the youngest. Lovely food, fantastic service and amazing ice-cream. We'll be back. Thanks

Every since my Italian friends recommended Marrocco's as an authentic Italian restaurant I've enjoyed many a fantastic meal made by the lovely staff there on Hove seafront. Generous portions, varied and often updated menu and deserts to die for. This place has it all.
