My husband and I recently visited Jamaica and stayed at the Jamaica inn. We had dinner at Toscanini's two nights in a row. The brother/ sister team that runs this place are fabulous!!! Full of energy love and knowledge. Food is excellent!! We will be back in December and can't wait to dine there again.

Immediately I was impressed with the candlelight, the lack of mosquitoes on the porch, the chalkboard easel menus, courteous greeting, and homemade focaccia with garlic butter served in a clam shell. Delicious bread indeed. We decided to split an appetizer, smoked marlin, which was quite... More

Tucked away beneath Harmony Hall Art Gallery in a garden setting, Toscanini Italian restaurant offers a wide choice of dishes. Delicious food, attentive staff and a relaxed atmosphere leads to an enjoyable evening.

We stumbled across this amazing colonial gem completely by accident on our first visit to Jamaica - "Italian in the Caribbean yeah right"...how wrong we were. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a dining experience so much that I took the family there the next day - we were a large family - 2 adults, 2 teenagers 2... More

Excellent menu, with lots of choice, and as the owner/chef (sorry can't remember his name, apologies) pointed out made with local and the freshest of ingredients. Generous portions which come as somewhat of... More

We visited Toscanini in July while we staying at the Jamaica inn, two nights in a row! The owners are lovely people as well as the servers. The food was outstanding, homemade pasta to die for! The owner (can't remember his name) actually picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off when we were done. We felt like... More
