Great experience from start to finish. The bottle selection was limitless and they made accommodations to make chicken alfredo even though it was not on the menu. The pricing was fair and the service was superb.

Gustino's is a must when in Cancun to have a fabulous dinner and awesome service. It is one place that is on top of our reservation list for a great dinner and service. I hope you do not miss this great experience!!!

Having dined at Gustino’s before, I was looking forward to visiting my favorite restaurant in Cancún again. Unfortunately, the service was off this time. The food was fantastic, but our waiter must have been having an off night, as his personality was rather brusk and the evening seemed to lack the elegance and graciousness of service which I have come to enjoy at Gustino’s and other fine restaurants. Right off the bat, we felt rushed. As we were placing our drink orders, our waiter pressed us to order our appetizers and entrees as well. The first course, an amuse-bouche, never appeared. The bread service also never appeared, although tables around us received theirs. We were missing the correct silverware for various courses and our table was also missing its salt and pepper shakers. It was not until the check was presented that our waiter seemed genuinely pleasant.

Having said as much, the food that we experienced was magnificent. The burrata caprese appetizer was delicious- the pesto was some of the best I’ve ever had. The filets were cooked to perfection. The restaurant staff, with the exception of our waiter, was superbly kind, gracious, and professional throughout the evening. I understand that people can have an off night and I know this restaurant definitely has a lot of good things going for it- what’s more, I felt like the value was excellent for the quality of food we received. I will definitely return and give Gustino’s another chance.

We went to Gustinos seeking a good selection of gluten-free options for my daughter and we were not disappointed. Although they did not have a separate GF menu, the waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and the GF choices.

I was disappointed in the gnocchi, which was very doughy. The Caesar salad and the carpaccio were especially good. Gustinos also has a kids menu with more that the usual pizza and spaghetti options.

Decent wines by the glass. Great and attentive service in a pleasant environment, with soft live jazz.

Surprisingly reasonably priced for fine dining as well.

A good (but not great) dining experience. Worth a try; just don't have the gnocchi.

As non-guests, my wife and I were treated as criminal suspects upon entering the JW Marriott. We were closely followed by security until we entered the hotel restaurant, Gustino. Horrible experience.

Outstanding dining experience! Great service, cocktails, excellent salads, carpaccio and gamberi saltati to start. Lamb chops and Bavette Di Mari were amazing.

We have been to JW twice but first dining experience. Since we have left Fred’s for dead due to a bad experience Gustino is definitely a place we will go back to for years to come. Enjoy!

The service wasn’t outstanding, to give an example, there were many waiters around and at the time of asking fir the bill I had to ask several times, waited for 30 minutes and after being really tired for the jet-lag had to get up, request the bill once more and pay at the till.
Food was ok, not fantastic, it was just fine. The only outstanding aspect was the ambiance, the room was beautiful and I think the restaurant could do a lot better improving service. For example, if they had a service similar to the rosa negra restaurant, also in Cancun, the experience would be better, even if the food was not as good.

The service can’t be beat.
They have an extensive wine list that you’ll find something for everyone.
Beautiful table settings and like I said the service is fantastic, but not overwhelming around you like bees.
The water glass never went empty.
Food was delicious, I had the pasta with marinara sauce and a salad.

A lovely space but terrible service by our primary waiter. I missed his name but his support waiter Carlos was good but not the senior one. Every time he (not Carlos) poured a glass of water or wine he did it in such a rush it was still pouring when he lifted it up .. but he was in such a rush he didn’t notice that he splashed water all over the table and later wine all over my handbag.

The food was only so so - the ragu was over seasoned/salted and the cod was dry and tasteless almost as though it had been in a freezer too long

Overall very disappointing. We are staying at the JW but had a few meals next door at the Marriott and overall have to say the food and service better at the Marriott which was a bit of a surprise

This was our first time dining at Gustino’s (It had been recommended to us by the concierge at our resort). It was absolutely fantastic! The restaurant itself was beautiful & the atmosphere was great. The service was wonderful and the food was some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had! From start to finish we had a wonderful evening. I highly recommend this restaurant!
