I came here with my girlfriend for my 25th birthday. This is the best authentic Italian Restaurant I've ever been to.The outdoor seating, candlelight, scenic background and classical music in the background made it a real romantic dinner like straight from out of the movies. The appetizer came from listening Lella explain the menu and just hearing the passion which... More

We stayed 5 nights in Jamaica and decided to try Toscanini for dinner one night. It was by far the best meal we had while in Jamaica. Who would have guessed we would find such excellent Italian food in Jamaica. The bolognese sauce was super good!! Lella was an amazing hostess(she is the owner)...who explained the menu and took our... More

This was one of the best Italian Restaruants we have ever eaten at. We are from Portland Oregon and traveled all the way to Jamaica to be pleasantly surprised to find this authentic restaurant. Fresh ingredients in everything along with a very lovely owner created a wonderful experience. We will definitely be going back.

We had the mozzerella caprese and I had the lobster spaghetti. He had the duck and he can't stop talking about it! We could tell everything was fresh... More

We spend a lovely evening in Lella's company and enjoying exquisitely prepared dishes. Our meals were prepared with local ingredients and the wine paring was perfect. The linguini with lobster was in my top 10 dishes ever. THANK YOU LELLA AND STAFF AT TOSCANINI.

We combined lunch at Toscanini with a visit to the Harmony House art gallery upstairs. Lunch was a great experience from planter's punch at the bar through dessert of blackberries and cream! The menu combines fresh pasta dishes with local ingredients ... beetroot and broadbeans on the salad. The wine list is well thought out to pair well with the... More

The owners have done a good job with the layout and decor. There was plenty on the menu that we were both interested in. Service was fast but there were few customers on the out of season weeknight that we visited.

My husband and I visited this restaurant in early June; my apologies for the late review! Simply put, our experience was heaven. The grounds are stunning, the food was perfection, and the staff was the best combination of helpful-but-not-pushy. The chef came to speak to my husband and I - again, he was fun and fantastic, without badgering us during... More
