Our day got 100% better when we by chance ran into Lella (co-owner) seconds after stopping into Harmony Hall to visit the site + art gallery. We were captivated by her charm in an instant and a crummy day was transformed...Lella made us feel welcomed + special as we sat and had coffee with her, discussing life, the world, and... More

My girlfriend and I were in Ochi in December/January and we were staying a short walk from Toscanini. We took a chance on showing up on New Year's Eve without a reservation and although they were fully booked, they accommodated us at the bar, which is a great spot outside. One of the owners, Lella, greeted us, walked us through... More

This restaurant takes fresh ingredients to a whole other level! I had homemade pasta with veggies and could actually taste the quality ingredients. Each veggie was so vibrant and the pasta actually tasted like it was rolled out and made with care. My husband got a steak dish that he thoroughly enjoyed as well. The service is insanely amazing as... More

Third visit in the three years we have been coming to Jamaica. Never disappointed. Food was delicious; tuna tartare was as fresh as can be, pasta perfectly al dente, marlin so tasty. Wonderful Italian wine selection. The patron talked me out of the bottle I had selected and recommended a cheaper one - it was a superb choice. Look forward... More

This is a gem of a restaurant in Jamaica! We ate there 3 of 5 nights during our stay at the nearby Chrisanns Paradise Apt. # 9. We had Salmon and Mahi-Mahi and pasta and a pumpkin soup and bruschetta and delicious crepes suzette and lemon sorbet and a chocolate dessert as well. The shrimp was perfect also! Lella Ricci...

We visited Toscanini as we always do when we are near the Ocho Rios area. Easily one of our top 5 restaurants in the world. Such a beautiful setting, PG's food always amazing, the new wine cellar is top-shelf, especially when following both PG and Lella's recommendations for pairings, and Lella's hospitality all make you feel as if you are...

Many choices of Pastas with various ingredients will beat many high priced NY restaurants. Many Appetizers to choose from. All the ones my wife and I chose were very good. Service Food excellent Owners sister and brother takes and advise on offerings. Brother is cook. Free transportation to and from restaurantrestaurtant. Prices favorable.

Love the environment, service of staff who are constantly checking on us and keeping the water goblets filled. Also the owner made sure in explaining every single meal on the menu board for us.
