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.

This place is truly one of a kind. The food is terrific and the atmosphere is one of a kind. They have open-air indoor and outdoor seating. Reggae music plays softly in the background while you enjoy a delicious meal. They bring the menu's over to your table on a wooden chalkboard. It's changes regularly so there is always something...

Toscanini is a great choice for a wonderful meal while in Ocho Rios. Lella and her staff are all very proud of what they offer, from the old plantation house location and seating in the garden/patio, to the localized variations of Italian meal specialties. Lella will personally start the seating off if you desire with a history lesson of the... More

Toscanini is located on the ground floor of Harmony Hall just outside Ocho Rios. It is a charming location - lovely old building, with great character, and some well kept lush gardens. Sitting at the bar under the tower in the evening is a delight in itself.. Menu choices are good and on balance we had a reasonable dinner -... More

Wonderful personalized full service establishment in special surroundings. Interesting " board menus" expertly described and explained by a super waiter who is clear and precise in her information. Wonderful food. Great desserts though a modest but good wine selection. A gem.
