“Always great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

As a former home owner and now regular vacationer in Jamaica, Toscanini is truly a restaurant that lives up to its reputation one of the best in Jamaica. It's hard to do great Italian on any of the islands but..as a child of italian american parents and grandparents, Chef, you do an amazing job! On a personal note, looking forward to your return, Leila. Proud of you!!

xoxo,
Joey & Rich

“Fantastastic eating a Toacanini restaurant, Ocho Rios, JA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

On the 12 March 2013 my husband and I visited Toscanini restaurant, Harmony Hall, Ocho Rios, Jamaica to a surprise birthday meal arranged by our son-in-law and our daughter. We were welcomed by Lella Ricci, a most friendly, informative, and lively host. She guided us through the menus and told us about how the food was sourced, how it was cooked, and the various spices used. The whole experience of the evening was wonderful. We enjoyed lobster, beautifully prepared and presented, Mahi Mahi and other lovely food. Toscanini restaurant was a marvellous place to eat and we would definitely return.

Our meal was to celebrate a special occasion and all expenses were paid without us knowing anything about costs.

“A fantastic restaurant that we never would have expected in Ocho Rios”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has received a lot of positive reviews and when you visit it's not hard to see why. The reception, service, food and setting were all excellent.

The food is as good as you will find in top Italian restaurants in Europe. Despite what must be immense attention to deal, everything appears effortless (the sign of truly great service).

Lella personally explained the menu to us and was a pleasure to speak with. She suggested we visit Noel Coward's Firefly (which we did, and was fantastic) and even put us in contact with a local guy named Horace to drive us there for a good price. We subsequently used Horace (a great guy) to drive us to Strawberry Hill.

All in all, a very good restaurant and one that you should go out of your way to visit while in Northern Jamaica.

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

It is rare to have the chef pick you up at your hotel and deliver you to his restuarant.
Plus when we arrived, we saw no other cars but no problem Man, the place was busy but the chef read the menu and took our orders!
Food was varied with everything from lobster and fresh seafood to Italian classics and the basics for children. We saw families having a blast, college kids, and couples enjoying a romantic evening.
Great expericne, and great to get such personal service and get out of our hotel.
I recommend it to all!
