Great food, great people. This is premium food and it’s always a treat. We love it. The only wood fired pizza in Bay County that I am aware of.

The pizza here is the best and the pasta bolognese is delicious! We enjoy the garlic bread too. Tonight we tried the stuffed mushrooms and they were better than any we ever had anywhere. The salad is fresh with mixed greens, tomatoes , and mozzarella.... We highly recommend Gulinos and Sons!More

When doing food right, clean and tasty appeals to you Gulinos’s will not disappoint you! Fresh ingredients, prepared fresh and authentic Italian food. Super friendly & nice owners, kids & wait staff. We stopped eating pizza anywhere else! They don’t use the usual super high...gluten flour most places use. It makes for a medium thick crust with great flavor that focuses on being a base for the fresh toppings! Couldn’t ask for better quality food all the way around!More

Tried it based on review--were not disappointed! The wood-fired pizza was great. I had the one with black olives, ham, artichoke and mushrooms (very fresh). Wide variety of pizzas. Not a lot of atmosphere--very cold draft coming in from window (we sat in a booth)....Would definitely get pizza again, maybe to go.More

Our first time at Gulino's but it definitely won't be the last. We had the Margherita pizza and it was one of the best we have every had. Everyone was polite and friendly. The interior is nothing fancy but when the pizza is that good...you just don't care.More

I was referred here by several friends for the pizza but was in the mood for baked spaghetti. Kudos to the owner for making me an item that was not on the menu. The fresh melted mozzarella cheese on it was great. The large entree...came with choice of garlic bread or salad or both for $1 extra. The inside is cozy with low top table seating. Limited lot parking. Friendly service. I would return.More

Dan and I teamed up with our cousin Kevin for a return visit. Our previous visit was on a "Mexi-Monday" which was so delicious that we returned with Kevin to explore more of the menu. This visit Dan tried the Carbonara and I the Amer'...with extra spice with Kevin attempting the Italian Steak Sandwich. Diners come with your choice of garlic bread or a wonderful salad of spring mix, cherry tomatoes and grated mozz cheese (your choice of Italian or Ranch Dressings). For just a dollar extra you get both bread and salad which Dan and I did. I fed garlic bread to Kevin to quite effectively reduce my carb counts. See...I can always count on him to help me out. The pasta was amazing with big pieces of smoky premium bacon in the sauce. Kevin's steak sandwich came with his choice of mushrooms or grilled onion....smartly he opted for both. The sandwich was served on grilled Italian bread, had a generous amount of sauce on it and was well loaded with mushroom and onion. The restaurant is well known for their 8" and 16" wood fire oven pizzas which we will need to make yet another return visit to try...they even have an interesting Polish themed one on the menu called the "Stanislaw" for South Enders. Mama came out of the kitchen personally to check on how our food was. Definately would return. Prices were more than fair for all the food we got. The restaurant itself is pretty spartan looking but the emphasis is on the food NOT decor. Dan and I both had foam takeout boxes to take with us. We still like our neighborhood restaurant, "Roma's" for Italian but this one on the north side of town was new to us and a nice change of pace.More

Authentic wood fired Pizza stove. The owner brought me to the kitchen to check it out.Best crust in the Tri-City area. Light, elastic, tasty. Had the margarita with onions and mushrooms. Ask for garlic butter to dip. Very casual interior like a diner, but super...friendly family atmosphere. Truly a family-run operation.More

We tried this place for the first time and loved it. The Pizza was cooked in a wood fire oven. The crust was light and thin. The sauce was tasty and just right. The cheese and toppings were just the right amount. This place is...the best pizza around . We will be back for sure.More

The place is quite small inside and not at all fancy but their food is quite reasonable. They are known for their pizza. No one in our group of six got pizza but everyone liked their meal which included spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, manicotti, spaghetti...carbonara, and a slim Jim sandwich. They garlic bread was really delicious. I would recommend the place to anyone looking for reasonable Italian food.More

We've had their pizzas several times as a delivery to Tri City Brewing. You can't go wrong with their food. The pizza is very good and the stuffed mushrooms were really good. The prices are great and fast service and delivery. If someone doesn't like...the pizza, then they just don't like pizza, no other way to say it.More
