We were staying at couples san souci right down the road from this wonderful little Italian restaurant. I was getting tired of the food on the resort (I'm a chef 4 family owned restaurants, 1 Italian 1 steak and seafood 1 lakeside casual 1 bagel and deli so it's easy to get board with the same choices everyday) I found...

This is a real Italian restaurant in the midst of Jamaica. The real thing. Creative, tasty, classic. A sophisticated European place. Delicious and memorable. The four of us, my wife and two teenage boys, were impressed.

We return every year....we're not sure if we travel to Ocho Rios every December to eat at Toscanini's or to vacation at the Jamaica inn ! This is the meal we dream about all year! The food, service, atmosphere are beyond wonderful! We've travelled all over Italy but Toscanini tops every restaurant! Where to start..... Appetizers to drool over...this year... More

Great food, great service and great atmosphere--what more could you want? Everything was fresh, delicious, artfully prepared and given great attention. We dined with about 15 people who had a range of dishes from pasta to seafood to duck to rabbit. I tried a bit of pretty much everyone's and it was all stunning!

Agree with previous reviewer that this is a lovely place managed by a delightful lady Lella. The food however is overly hyped. We had 4 different pasta dishes that were very good homemade macaroni but the tomato sauce lacked taste and the pasta felt like it was swimming in the sauce. Although the service itself was excellent our party had... More

Toscanini came highly recommended by Jamaica Inn.

The food was good but lacked finishing touches - the broad bean, avocado and radish was lovely but had no broad bean; the spiny lobster... More

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
