This is a quality gem and the owner, Lela, is so entertaining. Food and drinks are divine. You have to go here!! We went with 6 couples, escaping the Ocho Rios Sandals all inclusive craziness. It was a lovely dinner and the perfect food.

We live in Rose Hall during the winters and make it a point to take the journey (2 hours each way!) to Toscanini as often as possible. We begin with the farm fresh salads and delicate olive oil on the bruschetta, followed by wonderfully grilled...More
