Busy place, but tons of seating. Menu is simple, pizza with choice of 5-6 toppings. It’s perfection. Lots of locals enjoy this place. It’s a mature crowd and best sit down pizza place in town. Service is great and pizza is even better. You can...More

Every few months, old friends from childhood get together and talk about the old days. This is the best place to do that. Great pizza, great drinks and a great time. Ted is the best to set this up for us.

Voted best pizza in Michigan. Thin crust with a choice of 5 topping. Beer and wine along with mixed drinks available. We have been going to all the Fricano's for the past 58 years. Started in Grand Haven.

The crust is very thin, which is a nice change from the chain pizza stores. Just the right amounts and types of toppings. The difference is the flavor. There is more flavor in a Fricano's pizza than any chain store. The view is nice, the...More

We stopped in Fricano's after a concert. The service was fast and the pizza was good. The pizzas are sized more for an individual if eating a meal or to share for a snack. I liked the limited menu. Stick with what works

If you love thin crust pizza-this is the place. Thin and not too greasy. Though limited toppings, it is the flavor that brings you back again and again to this classic west Michigan shoreline pizzeria! Visit their ice cream and dessert shop the next floor...More

Fricano's Pizza is a genuine original. It's a very thin crust pizza, there's only one size. The menu is on the placemat. They only serve Pizza. So if you're only going to do one thing, you had better be pretty darn good at it. Their...More
