Having grown weary of the delicious but ubiquitous local jerk pork, chicken and sausage, we decided to try Toscanini's for lunch the day before we left Jamaica. What a pity - a pity, that is, that we hadn't found Lella Ricci and her wonderful restaurant...More

Toscanini is a lovely dining experience in every way! We pulled up to a (former) Jamaican "great house" and sat in the most amazingly pretty setting-outdoor dining, but under a roof. The restaurant has an open feel, but is very intimate. The staff and owners...More

The food here was delicious. Some may say the service was slow, but I think that's just Jamaica and nobody really does anything fast anywhere. If you're looking for a nicer place to sit down for lunch or dinner, I'd recommend Toscanini.

I would say maybe 20 minute drive. Golden Eye is right near Santa Maria Island on the accompanying map to this page. They may come get you and bring you back.

We will be at Couples TI second week in June '17. Would like to have dinner with you one night. What is the best way to make reservations? Also, I saw that the restaurant is not far from the resort, is it advisable to walk or should we get a cab? Looking forward to seeing what we have heard so much about.
