My wife and I loved every minute at Toscanini. Lella is a natural host and Harmony Hall is a spectacular setting. A real treat in the beautiful parish of St Mary! Thank you very much. We cannot wait to return.

We were in Jamaica for our honeymoon and were looking for a special meal off of our resort. We live in DC and have been to a lot of Italian place but we can honestly say this was the best we've experienced. Beyond the great food we got to also meet the owner who shared stories of Italy and the... More

I keep returning to Toscanini over and over again, every time I visit Jamaica. This time around, my husband and I went with another couple and we all had different meals. We spent several hours, sipping Prosecco and Rosé wines, enjoying the antipasto, which was followed by perfect pasta and ideal entrés. The service was friendly and professional and the... More

Toscaninis has become our special treat when we vacation in Ocho Rios. The food and atmosphere are wonderful! PG once again picked us up at our resort right on time, and chatted with us during the quick drive. We started with the Spicy Shrimp, ordered at a medium hotness. It was a little too spicy for my wife, which meant... More

Get off of the resort! We ate here on the last night of our trip to Ocho Rios and it was not only the best meal we had the entire trip, it was some of the best pasta we have ever eaten. We stayed at Couples Tower Isle where the food was above average for an all-inclusive, but didn't come... More

We were five people. When we arrived the chef/part owner was there to greet us. The extensive menu was split between two very large blackboards that were placed on easels at either end of the table.. It always seems to be the last day of the lobster season whenever we go there and so it was again. I started with... More

We ate lunch at this excellent restaurant. The menu is extensive and we would recommend the marinated marlin, the pappardelle bolognese and the spiny lobster. If you are lucky the owner and chef, Nella, will entertain you with stories about her family's history in the restaurant business. We greatly enjoyed meeting her and eating her superb cooking.

We weren't expecting to dine in an Italian restaurant in Jamaica! We frequent the North End in Boston and we loved Toscananis. The menu changes every night, and you can pick from an array of entrees.
