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. The staff prepared a birthday plating for me and sang. Met both owners and love them. I don't like but I LOVE Toscanini. Will I be... More

We've been coming to the restaurant for the last 17 years. It's always been a culinary surprise and delight however last night's dinner was fairly ho-hum and disappointing considering the $100 per person bill. The tuna tartar was tasteless with an unpleasant texture, disappointing. The Mahi Mahi was so salty it was inedible and the fettuccine Florentino (?) was bland... More

Lella is the best! She comes from an Italian town which is very close to where I come from, so I knew food would have been awesome, and it certainly was. So sorry I could not go back for my birthday as it is closed on Monday but we'll certainly go again :)

Me and my family went out for a meal in the supposedly number 1 restaurant in Ochi, to get charged £21 for some pasta that you could get in central london for £10 maximum. It's is not clear that tax is added nor that service charge is mandatory, I'm totally surprised as this restaurant is not in an iconic place... More

On my last day in Jamaica, my mother took me to Toscanini for lunch. I was easily at home due to the friendly staff and co-owner, Lella Ricci. Lella sat down to explain the menu and answered all of our questions. We settled on Spicy Sautéed Garlic Shrimp for our appetizer to share, Roasted Duck with ginger and sorrel sauce... More

My wife booked our dinner here for New Year's Eve 2016 for 17 people. Lella Ricci, a co-owner of the restaurant, personally took our orders. The food was delicious and the head chef walked through occasionally making sure everyone was satisfied. What a wonderful experience.

The restaurant was full, our hotel fortunately had made a reservation for us as several parties turned up on spec and were turned away. The food menu is a bit of a rigmarole, it is on blackboards, which sounds quaint but are difficult to see, the maitre d' was extremely busy and was interrupted several times by her staff whilst...
