Take a culinary tour through the Sicilian countryside at Gustino Italian Grill. This upscale restaurant serves up savory classics in luxurious surrounds against a background of live jazz. The menu features familiar favorites such as pizza, salad, pasta and seafood dishes. Visit Gustino and treat yourself to some slow-baked Alaskan king crab or some seafood broth.
Located within the elegant grounds of the JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa, Gustino is a nice pick for a romantic outing. The restaurant also serves gluten-free fare, ensuring that it meets the needs of all but the most sensitive of palates.
We love Gustino's in the JW Marriott - fabulous food and service. This is our favorite restaurant in all of Cancun. The chef's are very creative and the service is outstanding. We will be coming back for a third time during this vacation.
Great food and atmosphere! Very impressive dining and great choices for food on the menu. The service is unlike anywhere else - perfect. I love the cooks they always wave as we leave the restaurant - very friendly.
Server, Abel, was outstanding. Attentive without being overbearing. Honest about food selection. Food was excellent. Well prepared. I got the short rib - outstanding. My husband got the lamb chops. Excellent. My friend got the special fettuccine with lobster. The homemade fettuccini net was outstanding as well. The desserts were great. The ambience was great. Both sax players were outstanding. Everyone was kind and friendly. The one thing not positive was that the wine menu was overpriced. That was the only negative. A bottle of Decoy Merlot that I could get in the US for $20 was approximately $105 USD at the restaurant. Everything else was really done well. Definitely returning.
Absolutely fabulous restaurant 😊
The service couldn't have been worse. The restaurant was not full, yet we received no less than ten apologies when when asked where our meal was. Had to ask for bread, water, desert menus, and much more. A beautiful restaurant and good food was ruined by the really poor service.
Food was outstanding! Taste delicious and presentation was over the top!
The wait staff were friendly and efficient. The food and drinks were excellent.
Thoughtful touches- a rose at the end of the meal and a complimentary starter, pizza appy was yummy main course: Raghu was really good the seafood pasta lacked real flavor. Live music was a nice touch.
Have been here previously so was looking forward to our return visit. This time around, service was a bit off. It is a leisurely meal to be sure but the wait staff wasn't readily available throughout the meal when needed, whether for the extra piece of bread, ordering another drink or pouring a glass of water. One of the dishes was served cold and we even had to wait to find someone to ask to have it reheated as once the entrees were delivered the servers again disappeared. No complaints about the food as each dish was delicious.
Everything was awesome! Food, service, no complaints!
Not impressed, sorry. The sound system had a short in it making the music annoying. The waiter suggested a bottle of wine which we didn't like. Once we picked another one and sent the first one back, our service went down hill. Won't be back.
The service was slow. The ambiance was excellent, the music was good. But the food was very average for the quality of restaurant. We expected better from JW Mariott
Amazing service, food, atmosphere in a beautiful setting. Please do yourself a favour and get here pronto!
Great food, outstanding service. Relaxing vibe w/ love saxophone player. Highly recommend.
One of our favorite restaurants in Cancun!
Very nice dinner with service by Ludin. A great way to celebrate New Year's 2018. Thanks!
Incredible surprise to a few bad meals in Cancún!
We really loved food and service!!
Ate at Gustino's second year in a row. Very good Italian but if you're from NY, hard to say it's great. Three of us has gnocchi; one with pesto (didn't like Gorgonzola preparation last year) and two with marinara which was tasty but not great. Fourth person had bronzino which was delicious. Skip the burrata appetizer. Pear carpaccio appetizer was good. Must have for dessert: Dolce sopressa (so?). A more formal meal than most in Cancun. Will go back next year because my kids love it but I preferred Fred's.
Good and service were excellent. Highly recommend
One of the best Italian restaurants in Cancun
Rose petals on table for anniversary! Prices seemed a little high but with an amuse bouche and sorbet on top of high quality food well worth it. Fun preparations and presentations. Beautiful setting. Only complaint was the volume of the amplified saxophone.
The space is beautiful. The service is fantastic. The food is great and incredibly well priced. The staff goes out of its way to make the night special. Simply a great place for a refined, but relaxed dinner out in Cancun.
The food was hit or miss. The beef carpaccio & pasta carbonara were excellent. The caprese app. was served on a plate with a center pocket causing the cheese to become very soggy. The snapper was cooked and served in paper which made the fish too moist. Ambience was very nice and service was excellent. Value was a little on the high side. Would not return. Too many other restaurants to choose from which are far better.
The table arrangement for our honeymoon celebration, the amazing service throughout & the incredible food were all instrumental pieces to our wonderful dinner.
Wonderful restaurant. Beautiful setting. Amazing food and drinks. First class service. Review from a person that’s not big Italian food fan. Would definitely recommend and will absolutely come back !
The food was great, and the service even greater!!
Food was awesome. The service was impeccable. Great ambience.
Visiting Cancun again and invited 3 locals to join us. Third time for us. First time for them.
Everything was perfect. Food, wine, ambiance and service (thank you Michael).
I have paid more for less at other fine dining in Cancun. Looking forward to our next diner there.
Always enjoy this restaurant when staying at the JW Marriott Cancun. Unique dishes with nice presentation.
This restaurant is the difference between eating and dining!!
The ambience, live sax music wafting in the air , huge candles glowing was the first blush as you enter.
The service was amazing. ..
the menus offers unique platings and everything we ordered was a work of art & was full of flavor.
Only issue... we dined at 7:30 and there were a few families with very small children who were noisy. Go later and it should be quieter.
By the way... I'm all for families with young children experiencing great food so I'm glad they were there. We were there once so we get it.
Great food and service. The staff went out of the way to make my wife's birthday special.
Wonderful experience from wait staff to food and ambiance. Would definitely recommend and will be back.
The food portions are very small for the price you pay. Have a plan b after dinner.
Best Italian food in Cancun! Go every time in Cancun!
Definitivamente recomendado, los platillos más deliciosos que hemos probado y un servicio de excelencia.
Te hacen sentir como si fueras el único comensal en el restaurante
An absolutely impeccable meal. The food was fantastic otherwise many surprises. I love it and will make a point to come back.
We celebrated our Anniversary this weekend and Gustino's went out of their way to help make it a special evening for us. They have a live saxophone player and we thought that would be romantic and interesting and it was very nice. We arrived to a beautiful table of rose petals in a heart design & the red cloth napkins were folded into a rose as well. Staff was very helpful recommending a nice bottle of wine from their wine menu and they were attentive all night. We started with the cold pear carpaccio as our salad/appetizer and it was excellent. Had to try the Buffalo mazzarella Prosciutto pizza and then we shared a very unique pasta dish with stuffed lobster. For dessert they surprised us with a very good chocolate tort with strawberries. Thank you to Gustino's for helping us enjoy a very nice evening together.
We had a fantastic evening with amazing food andexcellent service. The only downside was the music, which we found too loud
Very nice interior and service. Food was just ok. Menu has a a good offering of pasta, seafood and meat but food was underwhelming in flavor. Caesar salad tasted bland, seafood pasta was underwhelming in seasoning as well. Beef dish was a bit better. Would go back for a pizza and glass of wine but not much else.
Outstanding cuisine served by professional staff and superb ding experience!
