I went for dinner with friends at Toscaninis our last night in Ocho Rios. The food and the service lived up to our expectations from the ratings on tripadvisor. Lella came over right away and described the menu and all the rest of the staff were very friendly and attentive. The spicy shrimp appetizer was one of the best dishes... More

We loved the broad bean radish and avocado salad--especially with the slices of grilled radish. And the spicy garlic shrimp. Blended fruit punch was fantastic. The staff were wonderful, and owners very helpful. Lella sat with us and gave us extensive touring advice, and Luigi picked us up from our AirBNB (from which we could have walked). A great day...

A warm welcome from Lella and brother Luigi encouraged us to book a special meal at Toscinin's while we were staying in Ocho Rios. A varied menu, including antipasti, mains and desserts gave us an embarras de choix. We each had an appetizer, a main and a dessert, all of which we enjoyed. The menu changes depending on the availability... More

If not one of the best Italian dinners anywhere! This coming from a full-blooded Italian from NJ. My husband and I went as a dine around option at the Jamaica Inn. We asked the staff at the resort which restaurant to go to since there were three options and several recommended this one. The freshest fish expertly prepared along with... More

We were staying at an all inclusive resort and were very unhappy with the food there. One of the managers suggested Toscanini and we went here for our last night on the island. Lella actually came outside to greet us and made us feel so welcome right away. She personally explained all the wonderful dinner options and gave us a... More

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of eating at this amazing Italian restaurant in Jamaica. It was our first time to Jamaica and our two trips to Toscanini helped cement it as one of our best holiday destinations! Lella, one of the owners, has created such a magical place. Harmony Hall is such a beautiful building and has... More

Toscanini Restaurant in Ocho Rios. During a recent trip to Jamaica, we went for dinner to Toscanini. The building houses Harmony Hall, an art gallery. The tables are in a covered patio that allowed us to enjoy a wonderful evening breeze. You are greeted by the owner who looks after you in addition to the servers. All are very helpful... More

My husband and I ate at Tuscanini recently and both of us were blown away at the quality of the food and the excellent service. We are both big foodies being from Houston, TX so we had to try this place since it was so highly rated, and we were not disappointed! The manager/owner Lella was also the most knowledgeable...

I've been visiting Toscanini's since 2003, and it still remains one of the highlights of my trip to Jamaica. Truly authentic Italian food and hospitality in the countryside of Jamaica - who would have thought! But that's exactly what this place is - a real gem which I hope to visit and enjoy for many years to come. If you... More
