Awesome awesome awesome pizzas. Love that herbal sprinkle. Thin crust that is actually a crust and not some fake bread out of a freezer.

No complaints!! People that complain about them not wearing masks over their noses should not leave their house. If you are such a sad soul that you want a business that is a 5 star business to be turned in for something that does Not...prevent someone to get sick, then stay in your home and order delivery, while the rest of us pick up the pieces to our falling economy.

State law requires staff to wear face masks. Owner/manager had his mask on chin the entire time I was there. Mouth/nose completely exposed. Talking loud to customers face to face. Some kitchen staff also had noses out. I'm a regular customer but they need to...be reported to health department.More

Fricano's has a small menu but, offers the most amazing, flavorful thin crusted pizza. If you are in the mood for pizza, I suggest Fricano's location at 5808 Alpine Ave NW, Comstock Park, MI 49321, Phone: (616) 785-5800. Closed on Sunday but open Mon. -...Sat. at 4pm; closing at 10 pm but Fri & Sat open til 11pm. Some items on the menu include Build your own Pizza, Specialty Pizzas (Tomato Basil, Roasted Garlic, Ham/Pineapple, Pizza Primavera) Spaghetti Dinner, Italian or Meatball Subs, Caesar or Italian Garden salads, Desserts and soft drinks. Also served is Beer, Wine and Cocktails. Wonderful place to come relax with friends and family. NOTE: Gluten Free Crust is also offered so be sure to ask your waitress! ALSO - Every Tuesday evening during the summer, there is a car show in the North parking lot of the restaurant and is so much fun for the family to come check out all the oldie but goodie cars, trucks, motorcycles!!More

If you love a pizza with mouthwatering flavor you go here. If you are looking for something that hits your gut like a bowling ball that forces you to adjust your pants later, go some place else. It is an original and tradition 2 generations...in the making, not some corporate creation made by food science nerds. Yep, there are only a handful of toppings, but it is all you need. Make it your own, double up the cheese, the sauce or any other topping... add extra bird seed (seasoning). For the newbies, you go here for pizza, you can order other things, but if you don't get a pizza, you are doing things wrong. Everybody should order their own pizza. For the those that say it is greasy, that is the butterfat coming out of their special high quality cheese blend, not some vat of something from a food service company. You know quality when you taste it, and quality is what you'll get here.More

Fricanos’s makes the best thin crust pizza you’ll ever eat. An almost cracker like crust with excellent toppings. Note that they do have a limited selection of toppings though.

Someone must be getting paid to enter false positive reviews. Served with small cheap paper plates, sub par service/under staffed, as well as pretty awful pizza. No bread sticks or cheese bread offered but basically frozen loaf of garlic bread with melted shredded cheese on...it and nasty marinara if that's what is was. Super thin crust drowning in cheese. Crust so thin they use scissors to cut the pizza slices. Dont even have white milk so not a family friendly restraurant. Wouldn't recommend at all!! It's like the taco bell of pizza if drunk I'm sure it would be awesome.More

This is the absolute best thin crust pizza you'll ever eat anywhere! If you like a cracker thin crust, you'll love this pizza. Beware though, there are only 5 toppings available here - pepperoni, sausage, green pepper, mushrooms and anchovies.

You'll be hard pressed to find better tasting pizza anywhere! The crust is perfectly flaky and buttery as well. We always choose "well done". Golden brown to perfection! My rating is based on the pizza, nothing else. The smell outside the restaurant is uniquely to...Fricano's pizza, HEAVENLY to be exact. Any thin crust pizza lover that hasn't tried Fricano's is shortchanging their selves. We ride our motorcycle from the east side of the state to the west side of the state for this special treat and turn around and go home. Nice ride, yes, but the pizza is that special.More

Everyone in West Michigan should at least try Fricano's pizza. Its both unique and amazing. We got a "everything but anchovies" and a pepperoni. Both were excellent. Word of advise, order your pizza on cardboard, it helps with any extra grease. The ambiance is a...little disappointing, being a bit cramped and very dated.More

Really horribly managed restaurant, with the worst red sauce I've ever tasted. Not only are the menu items at tired as their banter, the poor execution boggles the mind. If you want a rabid case of diarrhea or botulism, this is the place for you!
