Whilst this establishment has the most fantastic ice cream and is right by the beach in Hove. It is also well worth stopping and having some food in its restaurant. Fantastic value and delicious food. You may have to wait but it is worth it.

Atmospheric, crazy, fun and fabulous food. Our local Italian restaurant that never fails to be an experience. The team are always friendly and attentive although it seems a little crazy and disorganised when busy. But the food makes up for it! Fabulous portions, fresh fish...More

Oh my, just like being in Italy again! Superb ice cream, friendly staff, all very clean. Would have scored a five if we hadn't waited so long. Seemed to have numerous staff but only one guy serving.

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
