Great place for lunch or dinner!

Lela does a wonderful job welcoming you and the food is fabulous. Homemade pasta, fish, and a great variety of other dishes. Very accommodating and willing to adjust to your tastes and can handle any vegetarian needs.

We had a great grilled lobster with pasta per Leila's recommendations. Good wine too. So good we went back because Jamaica didn't seem to have many good restaurants.

We had the most amazing meals here - the food was wonderful, the choice extensive and the setting beautiful. Excellent fresh sea food and home made pasta made the most wonderful choice of both starters and main courses. Lella was a wonderful hostess who explained not only the history of the plantation but about the source of fresh food used.... More

Hello PJ and Lella! Host and hostess and chef extraordinaire. The food, ambience and experience is second to none for that special night out. The biggest difficulty is choosing what to eat from the menu boards filled with fresh and local seafoods, pastas, vegetables and wine! You must always go more than once.

Being of Italian descent and knowing an amazing seafood pasta dish when I taste one, Toscanini excelled in every way possible to create authentic Italian cuisine in an Italian feeling atmosphere. I was there with a large group and had the privilege of trying many dishes and every single one was fantastic! The amazing food, wine, service and atmosphere here... More

1. Amazing staff. 2. Amazing atmosphere. The sounds of nature are incredible. The old building that houses the restaurant is beautiful. 3. The food just tops it off. Even if it wasn't some of the best Italian food i've ever had, it would still be awesome. Lela is a spectacular host who was born to do this! We came with... More
