Walked down beach front from Hove Lagoon, and guide took us past several places selling ice cream until we got to Marroccos. Expected it to be north African but turned out to be Italian restaurant fronted by ice cream section. Despite it being a cold day the queue for ice cream extended out into the road ! Range was extensive... More

You just can't beat homemade pasta, even if the sauce choices are limited for vegetarians. Amazing seafood, fish and atmosphere. Coffee and breakfast is worth having too

Marroccos is possibly my number one favorite place to go for ice cream. It's in a great spot by the sea and the choices there are awesome. I cannot say I've had every flavor but I can stay every one I've had had been delicious. The pizza there is tasty and the pasta and sea food dishes are just as... More

This is by far my favourite restaurant. Fresh Italian pasta, pizza and ice-cream with an extensive menu to cater for everyones tastes with a welcoming atmosphere. The staff are friendly and give excellent service. The food generously proportioned and tastes amazing. It is an open kitchen where you can see your food being cooked. The chefs are great and are...

I lived in Brighton for nearly 15 years without going here. Now its one of our favourite breakfast places and I love it for a quick supper with the family (sadly our grown-up kids don't like it as much as we do - its just not flash enough for them). Its family run, efficient, honest Italian fare - the meatballs... More

Firstly, Marrocco's remains a iconic site on any Hove foodie map. Its location is fab, right by the beach. Its been there for donkey's years. I still remember the original husband and wife team that created it. It's great for a beach side coffee, some good ice cream, or the need for some fast pasta. However, beyond those basic needs,...

Gus, now come on, be serious and stop wasting peoples time. You wrote a review that was factually wrong and was taken down and now you write another one mentioning comments about your first review that no one can now see. But don't worry I have a copy of my reply which I'll post after this. To set the record... More

There is nothing I like better than to sit outside this place with a glass of wine and some mussels. Which are always superb. This morning I thought I would have a coffee, I go in and stand for over 5 minutes, watch staff talk to each other, walk around with camera' s and not one acknowledgement. To the point... More

We were very disappointed with our experience tonight . We have eaten here at morrocco's many many times over the last 15 years .We have brought various people friends and family at different times. However for the first time ever. We were extremely let down. The moment you walked in......no atmosphere....the staff were OK......but not charismatic.......the Italian waiters in the... More

Hi Sue What I find really strange with your review, is that for someone who as you state has been dining with us for 15 years doesn’t know the name of the dish that you nearly always order, it’s called Risotto Marinara. Because of the low quality of clams over the past years, we haven’t served it with clams since... More

Ice cream is legendary and true Italian gelato. Beware the long queues on sunny weekends. Rest of food very average, but useful for beach takeaways

We'll never be a large restaurant, It's simply too small, our kitchen has always been in the heart of the dining area making our complete operation totally transparent. If you haven't visited us, you'll find that what we offer is real italian food, the food you would expect when you're on holiday in the old country and there's always something for everyone, regardless of their tastes.We still work within traditional methods and believe strongly in having the kitchen as the heart of our restaurant. Marroccos' offers a traditional family atmosphere with food that we are proud to plan, create and serve. But we have high standards. We believe in value for money without sacrificing quality or freshness and operate a strict quality control system including ordering our food daily to ensure freshness and minimise waste. Of course we don't get it right 100% of the time, but we have policies and procedures in place to deal with any matter that you're not happy with. All we ask is that you tell us so we can correct any matter that you're not happy with if it arises. I'm very proud of all my team that have helped create and mould Marroccos' into what it is today and we look forward to the years to come. Pietro Marrocco and the team at Marroccos
