I prefer his Mom's place in Grand Haven for the subtle difference in taste, and the huge difference in grease. Ted has refined the "family recipe" to accommodate the middle-of-the-road taste buds. The service is pure Fricano's. Attentive, precise. Great view of Muskegon Lake. It's a must have every 90-days or so. Anymore than that and your asking for angioplasty.

Fricanos is that unique place where you can have a dinner, birthday party or wedding reception and know that you will walk away satisfied. Simple menu and unique pizza has made the Fricano's name a common word amongst locals. If you haven't been there then you need to make the trip.

I have been eating this pizza since 1956. Fricano's pizza was the first pizza place in Western Michigan, originating in Grand Haven. Ted Fricano operates the restaurant in Muskegon. True to the family tradition they use only five ingredients on a thin crust. Pepperoni, mushroom, green pepper, fresh sausage and anchovies or any combination thereof with a mixture of mozzarella...

I have been enjoying Fricanos Pizza for many years. It never changes because it doesn't have to. You either love it or you don't. It has been and still is my all time favorite pizza in Muskegon and they have some stiff competition. Thin, thin crust, very little if any sauce, wonderful sausage. I order mine deluxe NO ANCHOVIES with... More

This place has the best pizza in town. It's the crust that makes the pizza...cracker thin...but so good! They have adult beverages and soda to go with the pizza and the service is always friendly!

Fricano's pizza is very good. The staff is friendly!! I have tried several of their pizzas and I have yet, to have one I didn't like. The crust is very thin and the sauce they use is very good (sauce makes the pizza) with quality toppings. The building is very unique and has recently been restored, which makes for a... More

Our family eats here every time we visit—it’s our ritual. Cracker thin crust, tasty sauce, six ingredient options--you can't get any simpler than that. Go halvsies or get one for yourself. You can get your pizza "well done" if you want a crisp crust. Good selection of beverages (both leaded and unleaded). Great view of Muskegon Lake (ask for a... More

I've never met a pizza I didn't like. That said, everyone has their own taste when it comes to pizza. If you like very traditional toppings with few choices and if you like a limp crust, then Fricano's is for you. The slices can be rolled like a crepe and eaten like that. Service was good, considering that our server... More

I love Fricano's, but it is strictly a pizza place. Their menu consists of their limited toppings. They do not offer free refills on drinks. Fricano's is my favorite pizza place though, and it is right on the lake and has a nice atmosphere. They do not have any booths, only tables, some of the tables have a nice view... More

This was a great find! Very yummy pizza!! We were surprised there were only a few things to choose but once our pizzas came that was forgotten.....SO yummy! It was nice to sit and look at the boats and the water and the sunset while eating.
