NO Onions!!

Went for dinner on Saturday night. Pizza was thin, crispy, excellent sauce and cheese! We ordered onions and were told "NO ONIONS". Huh? Why? This place refuses to put onions on their pizza! Yep, that's crazy. We could get other items but no onions! How disappointed we were. Waitress was not... read more

Selections 6 Lovely thin crusts. Tomatoe basil one of my favorites. Another is the garlic pizza. . My daughter visits from east side of state. A stop a Fricanos is a must when ever she comes.

Only one size, limited toppings. That being said its the best pizza anywhere. Very thin crust with very good quality pepperoni and sausage. Had a lot of pizza around the USA and I would rank Fricanos right up top!

This is a place I get take-out from if I don't want to cook a frozen pizza at home. The pizza is very thin crust, but not a special trip for us by any means.

. The Fricanos have taken an old business and reperposed it as a pizza restaurant. Artifacts and pictures of their native country. including an antique wine press and casks are displayed around the dinning room. The pizza is more like what you would find served in Italy than the common American pizza. While pizza is the main attraction there are... More

We stopped here because we saw their sign advertising live bluegrass music on Thursday evenings through November. Good: loved the thin crust pizza. Prices were very good ($10 for the pizza, $1 for a Diet Coke, no charge for the refill). Our server was very pleasant, albeit overworked, and thebluegrass band was very enjoyable. Bad: very noisy, tables were way... More

Just went there for the first time and I thought the pizza was very good, but maybe not as great as others had me believe. As a family, we tried three different kinds and the pepperoni turned out to be the best. Staff was friendly and service was pretty quick. We'll be back for more.

The pizza was good, not the best I have ever had, but good. The cannoli was average. The staff was horrible. No delivery either. When I placed the order the person who answered the phone tried to take the order, but was so incompetent they had to hand the phone to someone else. When I went to pick up the... More

Great pizza just like the original place in Grand Haven, MI. Busy place but the orders come out quickly. If you enjoy a very thin crust pizza then this is the place to go. Not as real fancy place but family atmosphere for sure. Does serve beer and booze.
