We had dinner here about 10 days ago during our recent stay in Jamaica and can't praise it highly enough. The attention to detail in every aspect from arrival, food, service and ambiance is first class. The fact that Lella takes the time to take you through the menu with all it's wonderful Italian influences and local produce is sheer... More

What a find!!! We were staying at a hotel down the road for the week of Thanksgiving and didn't want to stay at the resort for dinner. After reading many reviews of Toscanini and Evita's we picked Toscanini and are so happy we did. My husband is full blooded Italian so he's hard to impress but he was throughly pleased... More

Excellent menu using local fish and vegetables. The owner, Lella, sat at our table and described our choices in detail. Wonderful Italian/ Jamaican combination. Will return every visit!

Our great friends took us to Toscanini on our recent visit to Jamaica last week. The personal attention and conversation that Lella gave to us was equal to the great food. Her taking the time to take us to her wine cellar and finding the right Italian wine with our dinner made it a perfect evening. Look forward to returning... More

We visited Toscanini for lunch and ended up having a three course meal. Lella did a splendid job describing all of the lovely dishes on offer that we found it hard to resist. The focaccia and pastas are freshly made and you can taste the difference. I had pumpkin soup which was lovely to start, followed by lobster pasta which... More

We were lucky enough to eat twice at Toscanini's during our trip to Jamaica, & it's a fantastic place, blending Italian cooking and focus on flavour with the finest Jamaican ingredients. Located in an old pimento plantation house that's now an art gallery, dinner is served on the beautifully restored verandah, where fairy lights pick out the dainty wooden filigree... More

On October 21st, we hosted our wedding dinner at Toscanini Restaurant. We selected the restaurant because in 2011 my mother and I had enjoyed a magical meal at the restaurant. Little did we know, how amazing Lella would be to work with. She took care of every little detail and made planning a destination welcome dinner for 50 guests a... More

Last evening a guest and I had dinner in Toscanini in Ocho Rios.From start to finish the total experience was world class. Lella Ricci, owner and hostess for the evening decribes your options so passionately it is difficult not to accept her recommendations. She lets you know that Toscanini does not 'do frozen' and recites her recommendations with such a... More

We had dinner here twice during our stay in Ocho Rios last week. The food was incredible, the staff was kind and helpful, not a single complaint at all. A little on the pricey side, but well worth it!
