Absolutely loved everything about Toscanini's, setting, service and food were all great.
Warmly greeted by the staff and owner and showed a mouth watering selection of courses. Food was cooked to perfection and the sweets are to die for! especially the profiteroles, with the homemade chocolate sauce which kept us wanting more.
Definitely an establishment i will visit again and recommend.

We were in Jamaica for 12 days in March 2009. We had a delightful lunch and our send off dinner at Toscanini's. Both were stupendous! It is quite expensive, but you can taste the love of food in each dish! We tried several appetizers and salads. The caprese salad was quite good (we did not see any stores with good cheese-the fresh mozzarella was a welcome change). The bruschetta drizzled with scotchbonnet olive oil was really wonderful as was a salad with celeriac and balsamic vinaigrette. We tried several pasta dishes, pizza and Mahi Mahi. All of them were stupendous. I will definately return the next time that I am in Jamaica!

My husband and I have been vacationing in Jamaica for over 20 years and have never found a restaurant to compare to Toscanini's. The food is made from local fresh ingredients and prepared so each dish is its own delicacy! The pasta (papardelle is my favorite!) is homemade and the fish and lobster are fresh from the sea! The wines are well selected and a treat. Owners P.G. and Lelle are delightful hosts and after Lelle describes the menu, item by item, you only wish you could eat one of everything! If you visit the north coast of Jamaica, don't miss out on Toscanini's Restaurant - it's one of a kind!

We had a huge party for Valentine's dinner...and everything was amazing! The food was outstanding, the wine was flavorful and the owner was awesome. She sat down with us at the end of the evening and told us the history of the house.

This restaurant had been recommended to us, and we were not disappointed.

The service was excellent, and the owner spent a lot of time with us going through each dish on the menu and chatting at the end of our meal - very personal touch.

The menu itself we thought was very good, there is plenty of choice with the usual authentic italian specialities along with some more imaginative dishes. The wine list is not extensive but we were happy with the Sauvignon Blanc on offer. All four of us had three excellent courses with no complaints whatsoever, and although this restaurant may be slightly more expensive than others in the Ochi area I think that it was reasonable for the standard of food, location and service received.
