We travel to Italy regularly, so to find an Italian restaurant in Jamaica that really does things right was a very pleasant surprise. All the ingredients were top quality and the dishes very tasty. Our lunch visit was so delicious that we made a dinner reservation for the next evening. The owner (Lella) and her brother run a Italian restaurant... More

We (4 of us) all savored the freshly made pasta and locally caught fish/seafood. Recommendations: marinated marlin, lobster and bacon pasta. The owner loved mingling with the guests, both describing all the dishes, as well as detailing the history of the restaurant. She discreetly disappeared to allow us to savor the ambiance of this wonderful restaurant.

Visited Toscanini's recently and had a shrimp dish which was delectable. We come here for the coffee all the time as it is the best tasting coffee I have had.

We value our diners and always try to offer an exceptional experience, but some nights aren't perfect. The night of your party was an extremely busy evening. The restaurant was packed, we were at...

My wife and I loved every minute at Toscanini. Lella is a natural host and Harmony Hall is a spectacular setting. A real treat in the beautiful parish of St Mary! Thank you very much. We cannot wait to return.

I keep returning to Toscanini over and over again, every time I visit Jamaica. This time around, my husband and I went with another couple and we all had different meals. We spent several hours, sipping Prosecco and Rosé wines, enjoying the antipasto, which was followed by perfect pasta and ideal entrés. The service was friendly and professional and the... More

Toscaninis has become our special treat when we vacation in Ocho Rios. The food and atmosphere are wonderful! PG once again picked us up at our resort right on time, and chatted with us during the quick drive. We started with the Spicy Shrimp, ordered at a medium hotness. It was a little too spicy for my wife, which meant... More
