I can see why this place is always rated #1. We enjoyed the food immensely, great service. We stayed at an all inclusive & wanted to venture out to have a great meal. We were glad that we did.
We would definitely return.

3rd time's a charm.Over the years , the first two times we dropped in at Toscanini's it was closed, once on a Monday and once at odd hours. This time we were blessed, truly. The place is beautiful. the pasta extraordinary, Candy the barman is totally cool, present and nice to be around, and Leila and P.G. her brother have done something unique and utterly wonderful here. Many reviewers have accurately described the terrific food ; there is nothing even vaguely comparably excellent within many land and nautical miles . Every mouthful of every thing we put in our mouths was a joy to savour. The wine was delicious , dessert a splendid feat conjured up as if magically out of some distant somewhere else. . Bravo to all for pulling off this first class performance..and special thanks to lovely soul lady Leila for a brief chat that covered everything from all spice to stories about the fabled stones of the round table.

My wife and I were staying at a very nice all-inclusive resort only 5 minutes from this lovely Italian/Caribbean restaurant. Even though we were staying at an all-inclusive, we wanted to experience some authentic Italian food off of the resort, so we decided to take a short taxi ride over and try Toscanini's. We had read some wonderful reviews and we were not disappointed in our decision. We started with a salad that was filled with organic greans, beans and beets. I ordered the pasta with shrimp and vegetables and my wife had pasta with shrimp marinara and fresh local herbs. Both were EXCELLENT. There is also an extensive wine list. The service and atmosphere was great and the Co-Owner (Lella Ricci) was a magnificent hostess. She made us feel most welcome. Next time we are in Jamaica, (hopefully soon).....We will return!

We travel to Italy regularly, so to find an Italian restaurant in Jamaica that really does things right was a very pleasant surprise. All the ingredients were top quality and the dishes very tasty. Our lunch visit was so delicious that we made a dinner reservation for the next evening. The owner (Lella) and her brother run a Italian restaurant as true to its roots as I think possible in Caribbean country. I can only imagine the constant struggle to find the correct ingredients! Lella will spend some time with you discussing the menu and creating a selection of dishes that work for you and there is a reasonable selection of Italian wines (with some obscure, but welcome selections to be found in the cellar). They have a particular strength with seafood, but honestly, all dishes were nicely executed. Bellissimo!
