Only great thin crust pizza place around! (That I know of) My family and I have been coming here for years! Still great! Staff is friendly and the food is awesome, especially the peanut butter cookies!

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.

You either like Fricano's pizza, or you don't. The vast majority of people do, voting Fricano's the #1 pizza in West Michigan in 2013. Many of us had our first Fricano's experience in high school, standing in line waiting to get into the tavern in Grand Haven. 50 years and hundreds of pizzas later, we still need a monthly fix,...

Atmosphere is pretty basic: Older 70s style cafeteria restaurant converted to Pizza place. Excellent pizza. Very thin crispy crust with lots of herbs and seasoning on top. A lot more than just sauce, cheese and toppings.

I cannot say enough about the staff here. They were super attentive, and made our visit pretty enjoyable. After that, there isn't a lot more to boast about. I like the pizza here, but i do think it is a little costly for what you get. It is ten bucks for a thin crust pizza, which feeds one, and toppings... More

This pizza is amazing! I love that they now have a restaurant on the NW side of Grand Rapids instead of having to drive to the lakeshore every time I am having a craving for their pizza!!

Some people are really loyal customers of this small chain. They have an interesting business model, I guess. Small pizzas, somewhat greasy, limited choices and an atmosphere that does not thrill anybody is a good description. On our first visit we did not know about the no refill policy on drinks (amazing when you think about it) but the second... More

We love Fricano's pizza! They have been doing thin crust forever and really have it down to a science. We always get a pepperoni, mushroom and sausage as our "staple" and one other for leftovers the next day... If you like thin crust pizza, this is your place!

Best thin crust pizza in Grand Rapids area. The recipe and rules of pizza engagement have remain unchanged for decades. BYOPC(bring your own Parmesan cheese) they won't give you any as their opinion is that it taints the experience. One of the only restaurants where you pay for every glass of soda (no free refills). I agree with Fricano's business... More
