The Fricanos pizza restaurants are a definite must visit if you are ever in the area. We have started looking for diners drive ins and dives on all our trips and this place fits right in. Good pizza!

This is the absolute best thin crust pizza you'll ever eat anywhere! If you like a cracker thin crust, you'll love this pizza. Beware though, there are only 5 toppings available here - pepperoni, sausage, green pepper, mushrooms and anchovies.

Really horribly managed restaurant, with the worst red sauce I've ever tasted. Not only are the menu items at tired as their banter, the poor execution boggles the mind. If you want a rabid case of diarrhea or botulism, this is the place for you!

We arrived at 9 PM on 05/19/17 and I am so sorry we stoped into this location. We tried to order and the rudeness of the waitress should have told me to get up and leave, but we are from Arizona and had family coming...More

Fricano's is a West Michigan iconic restaurant. The original one in Grand Haven has the most history but the one on Alpine Avenue does a great job duplicating the pizza. It is unlike anything you have had compared to traditional pizza. Thin and flavorful it...More

Everything about the visit was average. The wait, the food quality, the price...all average. It isn't top on my return list, but I wouldn't not go there again.
