Thin crust at it's best

So different experience here compared to the other Fricano's....this is more a 'classy' pizza place. Always good pizza, only a handful of topping available but I prefer just cheese when I visit!!!

Fricano's is some of the best pizza in West Michigan. It has a great atmosphere and it is right on Muskegon Lake

Oldest pizza place in area. Used to have to wait at least 30 minutes in line just to order at the Grand Haven Fricano's. Some people say it is the only pizza they like. Others, like me, don't care much for it. All pizzas are like 12" diameter and thin crust. They cut the pizza with scissors. Very limited toppings... More

If you want to experience a truly great pizza, try Fricanos. It won't disappoint. With a simple menu of only 5 ingredients, it is a simply great experience. You will be back.

Our family has been going to Fricano's for special occasions for the last 40 years, first at the Grand Haven location and then after Mama Fricano passed along her secret recipe for sauce at the "new" place in Muskegon. Great view of Muskegon Lake, efficient wait staff...and the same pizza everyone likes!

First time. Simply the best pizza, staff and owner. Mr. Fricano came up to the table and introduced himself. Gave me a little history of the pizza. And thanked me for coming.

I prefer the subtle differences in the pizza from the Original Fricano's in Grand Haven. For one, when I ask for a pizza cooked crispy, it actually comes to me crispy. Two, the Grand Haven location doesn't charge for each soda refill. Three, the staff is friendlier and more enagaged witht he customer. Lastly, it's cheaper by +20%.

Emily assisted us with setting up our Rehearsal Dinner in Section 1 of the restaurant. It was perfect! The food was delicious, we had access to a small patio, and the servers took great care of us. The atmosphere was upbeat yet relaxed. Thank you for making our Rehearsal Dinner a fun celebration with great food!

The menu is limited - one size pizza (about 12 inches/8 slices), thin crust, 5 toppings from which to choose. There are no menus. The waitress couldn't tell us the price of the pizza. We ordered 3 pizzas for 5 people - just about right. Not a lot of atmosphere. Great place to take your kids because it's pretty basic... More
