The Real Deal

Pretty authentic thin crust pizza, pretty similar to what one would get in Italy. It's right on Alpine Ave just after 6 mile road. The seating is utilitarian and the menu limited - one cannot add or modify the pizza toppings. What is on the menu is very good.

As we pulled up to this ITALIAN EATERY,my first thoughts were on the overall appearance of this place. The exterior needs some TLC and the parking lot needs a good overhaul, as well. Perhaps one shouldn't judge the inside by the outside appearance but often it can set the mood for what one may come to expect. My spouse and... More

Very crispy and delicious thin crust pizza. Loved the blend of flavors and spices. Ordered the “EBA,” everything but anchovies which means four toppings: Italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, and green pepper. The green pepper is finely chopped so the taste is not overwhelming. A 12” pizza is enough to share if you have a light appetite. Medium and hardy eaters... More

The pizza's are FANTASTIC. The only negatives are that they only have one size and they don't deliver. The owner; Doug is a really nice guy and makes you feel welcome.

only one size, only limited toppings. that being stated the Best Pizza in the State of Michigan. Started in Grand Haven and branched to Grand Rapids. Recipe goes back 50-60 years. Very different, thin crust. Worth trying.

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.
