Best Italian in Jamaica !

Good food with a fine wine list and a very genial host. The pastas are home made and each sauce is unique. The location is convenient and a must visit for anyone staying in the Ocho Rios area.

We visit Ocho Rios every summer and always make it a point to have a meal at Toscanini. Authentic, wonderfully prepared Italian dishes in a charming atmosphere. Very warm staff, excellent service. You can't go wrong with this quaint gem of a spot.

it is perhaps unfair to review Toscanini at this time as I am a "regular". this however is in my estimation the mark of a fine restaurant especially one which is in the fine dining category. The service has always been personable and geared towards enjoying an evening out conversing with friends and savouring your food. If you want fast... More

We visited Toscanini for a romantic dinner, and were greeted by a welcoming staff and a very pleasantly outgoing chef. The entree and wine selections were so wonderful, and the conversation with the chef so intriguing, we ended up staying until after all the doors were locked. Highly recommended!

We were welcomed by the Chef, PJ, who was not at all what I expected, being a Londoner of Italian extraction with a rocker heart! He does know his stuff, though! Especially his Italian wine, which he has a fabulous collection of, in his wine cellar. The local staff were also extremely welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Again, not what I... More

What a wonderful place! Would go there over and over. The owner/chef was friendly inviting and "real", sitting with us and explaining the dishes and even telling us what the local options were that day. Wine list was friendly and definitely adequate, even for a wine snob like me! Food was tasty, innovative and fresh!
