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

What a fantastic meal we had!!! I had contacted Ricci before going to Jamaica for my girls 50th birthday. I got a response almost immediately confirming our booking. I had asked if they could do something special for her and they did not disappoint. We were greeted with a warm welcome to a wonderful setting. We both liked the menu... More

My husband and I ate here several times. We love the location and the delicious food. The servers are very nice, and we met the cooks which was also a pleasure. We met a guy name Poo, he kept a smile on his face but a man with very few words (smile)....This is the best Italian Restaurant on the Island,... More

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

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.
