 fantastic dining experience
Gustino is a very lovely restaurant and as you enter the long corriodor you will see a glow of candles at the end of the hall which lights your way to your table.We had the octopus app which was very good . My wife is Gluten free and they prepared a seafood pasta dish that was amazing. They also have gluten free breads !All of our main courses were fantastic .

 Excellent!
Located in the JW Marriott this is a first class Italian restaurant. I’ve eaten here many times over the years and I am always impressed. The chefs are Italian trained and they blend the best of Italy with the extraordinary fresh ingredients from the local area. I had the Bavette ai Fruitti di Mare - Gulf shrimp, diver scallops, Baja mussels, calamari and Caribbean lobster sautéed in garlic, saffron, butter and white wine. Wow! Great taste and enough to share many bites all around our table of six.

 Fantastic food and service
Our family of 6 had the best meal of our vacation at Gustino! The food was superb - we had the lamb chops and lobster, as well as some more creative dishes that I can't pronounce! We enjoyed the live music and impeccable service (Abel was very attentive and informative). Topped it off with the fondue, tiramisu and chocolate cake - an evening to remember with the people that I love. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Cancun.

 Extraordinary, Awesome!!!
This restaurant is inside JW Marriott hotel and We were guests, but anyone can have a dinner there. The waiters are full of politeness and excellent professionals. The food is awesome even pasta, sea food or steak. The atmosphere is elegant, and perfect for a great dinner. I do recommend for anyone who looks for an unmistakable place for dinning.

Service by Abel was outstanding. His anticipation and knowledge were unparalleled. The menu fulfills a variety of appetites and eating habits. The Gustino Antipasti was superb. All our food was delicious, prepared as we asked, served at the appropriate temperature and plated beautifully. The atmosphere is inviting, and the view spectacular.

My husband and I had a perfect meal and evening on May 14th. Abel was our waiter, he perfectly described the entrees and paired a wine that was a wonderful compliment to our appetizers and entrees. If you are in Cancun you must plan to have your dinner at Gustino's and be sure to ask for Abel.

 Good food and great service~
The service in this restaurant is unbelievable and the food is almost as good! They do the little touches that make such a difference ~ the complimentary appetizer, the sorbet between courses to cleanse the palate and the sax player strolling around the restaurant serenading us as we enjoyed our dinner. It was a lovely evening and worth every penny.

 A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! MUST GO!!
this place is amazing!!! Starting with the staff - most caring, sweetest people! They truly care that you have a great experience! I ate here on my first night - and it was great! Delicious! The foie gras was excellent! And desert!! Wow! If the waiter recommends something - go for it! So, so very good!!Second night of my stay I went to the A Capilla Argentian place. And though the food was fine, the people did not express the same level of caring service. They just served you food and that's it... on top of it they put a more expensive dish on my bill... surely was a mistake, but leaves a bad taste..Today I came back to Gustino. The food is excellent! I wish I could dine here every day! I wish I did not "waste" yesterday's dinner and came here instead. The pic is of the octopus appetizer. It was gorgeous and delicious. If you are in the area - come here. The prices are not bad at all, for the same money in US you would get an average dinner, while here you get a 5- star service and 5-star food!

 A perfect meal in a beautiful location
We come to Cancun often. Part of the enjoyment of a Cancun vacation is the opportunity to enjoy a fine dinner with family or friends at any of a range of very nice restaurants each highly recommended and each with its own special attraction. Gustino located at TJ Marriott is a repeat experience for us because the food is excellent, the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly and the staff is exceptional. Easily accessible Gustino is on the main street in the heart of the hotel zone. You can taxi or take a bus there minutes from most any other hotel in the zone. From the minute you enter you are made to feel welcome and appreciated. Our servers were Julio and Ennrique, a perfect team who work extremely well together and insure the Gustino effort to make the dining experience tops. A very appealing range of entree items offers something for everyone from pasta, to seafood, beef and veal. I had the best frutti da mere I have had the pleasure to enjoy in a very long time. Others in my part selected the Sea Bass and Lobster, tough choices given the temptation to go with the veal or beef. Dessert was over the top and we four shared a very generous and exceptional chocolate specialty of the house. Check the complete menu out on line. Prices for each item are provided. While cost of dinner for the four of us was the most reasonable of any dining we did over the week in Cancun, the real treat was that it we left feeling Gustino was tops with us. No doubt we will be back next trip.

 Tremendous service, attention to food detail, and wine selection make this a must when traveling to Mexico!
My wife and I enjoyed one of the best meals ever at this elegant Italian-themed restaurant in the JW Marriott. Abel and Enrique served us well. My wife had the fettuccini carbonara and I enjoyed the capricci salad and a seafood soup. One of the highlights was the tenor sax soloist who came by our table and serenaded us. You would have thought we were in Castiglione!

 Great Italian food and excellent service
We visited this place while our stay in Cancun. The quality of food is amazing. This is a true Italian food experience with five star services. Our waiter was super friendly and made sure we eat some excellent food there. He customized the food as per our taste and recommended some best option for vegetarians. The ambiance was super warm and feels like relaxed with some real good music. Overall I recommend this place for some true pasta and pizza lovers. Their prices are little high considering the portion size but it still acceptable. They should increase the portion size little bit.

 Delicious Beyond Compare!
I have worked for 5 star restaurants and am always a huge critic about the food, presentation, or service, but everything here was absolutely perfect. I don't think I can explain how perfect of a night this was for me and my friend. The hostess greeted us kindly and showed us to a very nice window seat table, with a great view. Our server (unfortunately can't remember his name) was attentive, talkative, and funny. His assistant was really nice as well and even photobombed my friends picture which we absolutely love. And the food? I have never wanted to each so much in my life. The food was amazing and the chef even sent over complimentary appetizers. I got the Caesar Salad and the presentation was beautiful. For dinner I have the Gnocchi Al Ragu (which I like to call deconstructed lasagna) was so flavorful and yummy, I didn't want to stop eating it. We had a great experience, and at the end of the meal when he brought the check the waiter brought both of us ladies roses. It was the perfect way to end a perfect dinner. If I am ever in Cancun again, this is the restaurant I will be going to.

We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we visited twice during our holiday. The food was very well presented and the decor was beautiful, with a saxophonist playing during the meal. Recommend the shrimp and soup starters and the ravioli and beef ragout for mains. Wine list also very comprehensive. Appetisers given for free during the meal were a great touch, also very delicious as was the complimentary sorbet course. If back in cancun, would visit again.

 Best Food We Had in Cancun
Strange that the best food we had in Cancun was Italian, but never underestimate Marriott's restaurants. I don't think I've had a bad meal or bad service at any of their restaurants, anywhere! Upon our entire party's arrival, we were promptly seated at a table with a wonderful fountain view. We ordered wine and food right away as we were in a hurry to go see he turtles released. (Such an amazing experience, btw!) Almost immediately after ordering, a complimentary appetizer arrived, as our entire family is part of Marriott's Elite status program.This is always such a nice surprise and a nice touch to treat their members! It was delicious. The food was delivered fast and everything was amazing! We were running short on time that they boxed up our desserts, got our check quickly and gave us appropriate cups to enjoy the rest of our wine on the beach. Fantastic!

The food and service were incredible from the beginning to end, I had the seafood pasta, Bavette Ai Frutti di Mare it was 360 pesos $20.12 USD also had the chef bring us something, my date was a guest speaker and the chef honored us with an incredible dish, I don't know what it was called. Everything was incredible, very fine dining and will be back.

 An amazing dinner
We were seated by the water, and fireworks were going off...how romantic is that! The food and service were incredible from the beginning to end, I had the seafood pasta, Bavette Ai Frutti di Mare it was 360 pesos $20.12 USD also had the chef bring us something, my date was a guest speaker and the chef honored us with an incredible dish, I don't know what it was called. Everything was incredible, very fine dining and will be back.

 Fine dining
Part of the Marriott hotel. This is their fine dining restaurant. Beautiful decor and table setting. Waiter was very helpful and courteous.Food excellent. All 6 table diners served at the same time. Food hot and beautifully arranged.Before entrees we were given a free appetiser of smoked salmon. After entrees a free lemon granita to cleanse our palate before main course. What a lovely unexpected gesture.Well worth the visit

 Best Restaurant at Marriott / JW
This was by far our favorite restaurant during our stay at the Marriott. Leon our server is a true hospitality pro, may have been the best server we've had at any restaurant on vacation ever. Well done!

 fantastic dining experience
Gustino is a very lovely restaurant and as you enter the long corriodor you will see a glow of candles at the end of the hall which lights your way to your table.We had the octopus app which was very good . My wife is Gluten free and they prepared a seafood pasta dish that was amazing. They also have gluten free breads !All of our main courses were fantastic .

 Excellent!
Located in the JW Marriott this is a first class Italian restaurant. I’ve eaten here many times over the years and I am always impressed. The chefs are Italian trained and they blend the best of Italy with the extraordinary fresh ingredients from the local area. I had the Bavette ai Fruitti di Mare - Gulf shrimp, diver scallops, Baja mussels, calamari and Caribbean lobster sautéed in garlic, saffron, butter and white wine. Wow! Great taste and enough to share many bites all around our table of six.

 Amazing Dinner and Service
The atmosphere was first rate, the service was impeccable and the food was amazing. Our waiter Fermin was first rate and took care of my family's special dietary needs. We are putting this one on our favorites list for sure.More

 Great restaurant
We came here twice while staying at the JW Marriott hotel. The first night was great! Our waiter, Ludin, I believe his name was awesome! Very attentive and polite. We had great service and our dishes were great. However, the second time we came, it was not as great. We had a different server (I believe Michael) who seemed to disappear for several minutes throughout our dinner. The dishes were okay second time around. Ludin made our first dinner a great experience. What a great server!Overall, not bad with reasonable prices.

 Good place to dine first night off the plane
We were staying at the Marriott and didn't want to go out after a torturous day of air travel to get there. The food in this Italian restaurant is good. Very typical of the quality you see in most JW locations around the globe.More

 Picky Italian
My husband is a picky Italian and really enjoyed Gustino's as did I. The service was superb from start to finish and the food delicious. It is a formal restaurant but not pretentious. Very comfortable. We started with a meat and cheese antipasto. Fresh, tasty and plenty of food for two people. For entrees, I ordered the Chilean sea bass, excellent. My husband ordered pasta with a beef and pork ragu, also delicious. We were so full we did not have room for dessert.Highly recommend.

 Ok
This restaurant has wonderful ambience, great service, but not your regular Italian cuisine. It's more of a hybrid Mexican/Italian restaurant. Traditional Italian dishes are not really available. If you want your typical spaghetti and meatballs this is not the place. If you want unique specialized Italian food this is your place. Prices are on the high side.

 Not what I expected
The restaurant is very nice and the staff is wonderful. The food....not what I expected. I guess I'm used to American style Italian food, simple pastas with simple sauces. The menu was difficult to understand and to read. I ended up getting stuffed lobster pasta. It was okay. The pasta was stuffed with a lobster filling, mostly ricotta cheese. Hardly any lobster. No sauce, just sitting in olive oil. Hmmm...weird. The other foods we got were kind of the same situation. We like simple, so if you're okay with trying new things, you might like it. We like to know what we're ordering.

The experience here was very exquisite and fancy. However, the most important part was the lackluster food. It was very bland Italian. Not much selection from the menu.More

 Average Restaurant in a Great Location
This is a beautiful venue. Located inside the Marriott Resort Cancun, the restaurant offers spectacular views, a luxurious display, very cozy seating and an exceptional staff. It is beautifully decorated. It is, however, rather expensive. I could never understand when and why some Italian restaurants have started serving French portions with a French presentation. The food was very tasty but hardly sufficient. The restaurant has an excellent wine menu.

 Very Nice but not Great
This is a very nice restaurant with great interior. The service is excellent and aims to please. The food is underwhelming and for us, unmemorable. Lack exciting flavors (seafood pasta) or favor in general ( Caesar Salad). Italian restaurant in JW, we expect food to be better.

 Nice presentation but mediocre food
We dined at this restaurant during a recent stay in Cancun. The service we good but a little rushed. The food presentation we nice but the food was just so so. Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing.I would try it again if I was in the area but just wasn't that impressed.

 Incredibly bad!!
We were at the Gustino (JW Marriott)few weeks back, family of 3. Weird restaurant, nice space but you cannot see a thing as the lack of light inside, huge center table with tons of candles, very spiritual...We took couples of appetizers, 3 main dishes and 1 dessert for our kid. Except for desert, all were simply absolutely bad, carpaccio beef salad, carbonara pasta, ragout pasta, ... only classical Italian dishes. $125 check. Only positive point was our waiter, nice and pro.An very overprice, dark and unpleasant food experience.
