“Rossi's Parlour not - more like Rossi's street cafe!!”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

I have always delighted in visiting Rossi's Parlour in Southend whenever I visit Southend but my last. Few visits have been very disappointing. I can't comment on the food as I have never eaten there and I will say the original ice cream is still the good ol' Rossi's but the "Parlour" is anything but that especially yesterday. Rossi's Southend is Southend so PLEASE Rossi's up your game and make it a place worthy of a visit rather than somewhere you go because it's there. Get your girls in a uniform, have a ticket/number system on display for your food orders or give people a table number (ice cream cone with number on - not hard to think about) instead of young girls shouting out your food number - so Essex! ICECREAM - why are you selling ice cream with colour additives?!! You should promote the best ice cream and you are not!! Hate to write negatively but Rossi's Parlour you should be something to be proud about other than just in a name!

“Quick coffee”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

After a Boxing Day stroll along the seafront we stopped here for coffee. Very busy but seemed to have a god selection of snacks, drinks and the famous Rossi ice cream. Quite a few tables outside but it could have done with someone clearing the tables more quickly. Can imagine its mad in the summer!

Reviewed 25 November 2013

Great menu choice, warm, lovely views, staff average but worth a visit or too, lovely the place could be better if staff where more professional and young girls bit more friendly. Really though nice place

“Service just a cold as the ice cream!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We visit this ice cream parlour frequently and have never ever been smiled at or thanked. Actually if there was an award for grumpiest ice cream server this place would win hands down. Such a shame. I guess they know they have guaranteed custom so don't need to smile or be cheery. Ice cream is lovely though.
