The ice creams here are amazing. The best in Brighton! But try their meals too. I can honestly say that their spaghetti with tomato sauce is the best I’ve ever tried, even when I’ve been in Italy. You won’t regret it!

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
