We stayed 5 nights in Jamaica and decided to try Toscanini for dinner one night. It was by far the best meal we had while in Jamaica. Who would have guessed we would find such excellent Italian food in Jamaica. The bolognese sauce was super good!! Lella was an amazing hostess(she is the owner)...who explained the menu and took our order and gave us some history on the restaurant. We had our two children with us and they enjoyed the meal and the service as well. The outdoor seating was warm and welcoming...we hope to come back to visit again someday. Thank you for a lovely evening.

This was one of the best Italian Restaruants we have ever eaten at.
We are from Portland Oregon and traveled all the way to Jamaica to be pleasantly surprised to find this authentic restaurant. Fresh ingredients in everything along with a very lovely owner created a wonderful experience. We will definitely be going back.

We went to Toscanini's the last night of our trip. It was beautiful set up outside! All the staff was wonderful and the food was amazing. You get great quality and portions. We had the mozzerella caprese and I had the lobster spaghetti. He had the duck and he can't stop talking about it! We could tell everything was fresh and well prepared. We would love to go there again!

We spend a lovely evening in Lella's company and enjoying exquisitely prepared dishes. Our meals were prepared with local ingredients and the wine paring was perfect. The linguini with lobster was in my top 10 dishes ever. THANK YOU LELLA AND STAFF AT TOSCANINI.

I have been a frequent visitor to Jamaica and have eaten at most of the restaurants in the Ocho Rios area. I find, as in everything else you get what you pay for.
The setting at Toscanni is beautiful,the food is excellent.

The menu has home made pastas,fresh fish and local fruits and vegetables,all prepared to order.

The brother and sister hosts are friendly and informative,the staff is attentive and efficient without being overbearing.

Linen napkins and tablecloths are a noticeable difference compared to other local restaurants

It's an evening of pleasure you should not miss if you're in Jamaica.
