Met a friend who I hadn't seen for a while so there was some catching up to do. She recommended meeting here. Parking was easy (right outside street parking 'pay and display'). When I first walked in I was caught off guard as I had in my head something different. I was transported back to when restaurants were of an... More

We have lived in Brighton for over 30 years and have always bought Ice-cream from Marrocco's first for our Children and now for our Grandchildren. The Ice-cream is always excellent, a huge range of flavours and competitively priced - their Coffee is good as well.

I have been to this restaurant several times with my family and they never fail to disappoint us. Their homemade pasta and pizza are absolutely delicious and their mussels are a must try. They also have a wonderful team of staff members from the waiters to the chefs who always make sure we have a great night out. If you... More

Have been going to Marrocco's for 3 years now. Apart from some staff members attitude (although it is now improving with their new staff members), it is very nice place to eat and it is most of the time fully booked. This is the only place we ever visited (we love eating out and try new places) that told us... More

Been 10+ times. Always a great time, amazing seafood. My girlfriend Suzie loves the Salmon Tagliatelle I love ALL THE THINGS. Crab, Lobster, Mixed Grill, you name it. The Gelato deserts are out of this world. House wine is very quaffable. Service good. My local Italian. The story behind the place is great too!

We have been going to Marrocco's for many years and it was our favourite restaurant. I don't know if it's changed hands but there was no-one there we recognised on Tuesday 17th Oct. They no longer do our favourite starter which was a mixed seafood sharing platter but agreed to produce one when we asked which pleased us. There was... More

Hi Jane Thanks for your review, we always welcome feedback, but in fairness, would prefer it if the whole story was told. Firstly in answer to your questions; The restaurant has been in the same family since 1969 and your waiter that night was Nik, who's been working here for about six years apart from a year off. Unfortunately, Tuesday... More

We live in hove and this is one of our favourites. Great coffee. Great breakfasts especially if you can get one of the outside tables facing the sea. Dinner is excellent with very generous portions. All home made and cooked to order. Friendly staff in a proper family run old school Italian restaurant.

Thank evieinindia

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
