Wonderful Italian restaurant at the JW Marriott — great atmosphere, food and service. While all the waiters and staff were exceptional, Fredy stood out — very engaging, great sense of humor, making our dining experience all that more enjoyable.More

Located in the JW Marriott, this restaurant was recommended by friends. It is an Italian grill, and the food, options, appetizers, and the bar were just exquisite. Top this off with live music at 7 PM. Previously there has been a violinist, and tonight there...was a clarinet soloist. Made the evening most enjoyable.More

Very elegant restaurant for fine Italian dining. They even had liquor Strega so I had to introduce my wife to that. There were 3 girls working reception, but not one would acknowledge our arrival. Eventually we got their attention and were seated. The most negative...thing though is the fact that the the cello music was played so darned loud that we could not even talk to each other and the cause of the lower score. The food is outstanding if you can handle the loudness.More

Gustavo specifically gave us the best service I have ever received at a restaurant. He made amazing suggestions for the impeccable food, checked in frequently but never bothered us, and gave us a very friendly but also efficient experience. My job is to go to...the best restaurants around Cancun and review and let me just say this, Gustavo is the best that you will get. Gustavo if you ever end up seeing this or someone shows you, I hope you know that your service has had an amazing effect on my life. You will go down in history for being the greatest waiter ever. Thank you Gustavo.More

The elegance is very nice and the service is fantastic, but $12 USD for a bottle of water is insane. Way overpriced and the money spent at the place well over $120 for two with no alcoholic drinks, you would think they made enough. The...seafood dish was well with the high price, don’t mind spending a lot of money for great food. I have had better food around the world for much better prices. JW is ripping off people that are staying here.More

Gustinos has always been a beautiful and romantic place to have dinner but the updated menu is fantastic! My husband and I enjoyed every course, from appetizer to dessert. Based on another dinner's recommendation, I tried the Carpaccio di Pere - sweet and savory, unbelievably...delicious! I'd fly to Cancun to eat that antipasto again! Gustavo and Jose were our wait staff. They were professional, friendly, and delivered everything on time and as it should be. We even had the honor to speak to the creative and talented chef! Wonderful experience!More

After a rough day out we arrived for dinner to be welcomed and put at ease by our server Gustavo. His wine knowledge and service were excellent. Along with Orlando and Chef Tomas we had an amazing dinner experience and left feeling much more positive...about the Mexican people and our day in Mexico. Highly recommend both the food and service.More

We had a great experience here as part of our all inclusive package. The food was delicious and service simply outstanding! One item I was unimpressed with though as a matter of how they treat their staff is that there was no gratuity included and...so their poor serving staff made absolutely no tips for the entire group. I am frankly shocked this is legal and even if it is, an establishment of this calibre should know better and do better in their treatment of their employees. Good servers are hard to come by and this group does a credit to the Marriott and this restaurant. Make sure they’re paid what they’re worth!More
