Such personal atmosphere and amazing quality of food! The owner makes you feel at home and tells all about the place and the newly caught fish of the day - lovely!

Ok, We ordered a marlin as a first dish and wasn't good, the pastas as a main dishe was good, but my desert, a sorbet, was like ice with a fruit juice.

Having grown weary of the delicious but ubiquitous local jerk pork, chicken and sausage, we decided to try Toscanini's for lunch the day before we left Jamaica. What a pity - a pity, that is, that we hadn't found Lella Ricci and her wonderful restaurant sooner, as all of us were ready to work our way through the menu again... More

My wife and I made reservations at Toscanini for the Saturday night prior to our Sunday departure and we both agreed: it was the best meal we'd had on the island. Service was attentive and friendly; the servers made careful note of my tree nut allergy and guided us accordingly. Apps: escargot bourguignon and insalata fruiti di mare absolutely fresh... More

Toscanini is a lovely dining experience in every way! We pulled up to a (former) Jamaican "great house" and sat in the most amazingly pretty setting-outdoor dining, but under a roof. The restaurant has an open feel, but is very intimate. The staff and owners are sure to make themselves known to you and are happy to make recommendations. The... More

Toscanini is a wonderful and enticing restaurant that has a delightful ambience surpassed only by the most excellent food and attentive service. I managed to get to the restaurant twice in my one week on the island – and I can’t wait to come back, if not just for another opportunity to go to Toscanini and experience the passionate and warm...

Food was very bland, and either undercooked or overcooked. The owner didn't seem to value my opinion when I told her about my pasta - she stated it tasted quite fine to her. All I could do was compare it with my experience from Evita's. Unfortunately I will not be coming back here.
