We walked in not knowing where to go or how to order, no one around to help us. So we go to the counter to place our order and they say go sit down, so we it down and wait for a server to finally help us. Poor service, greasy pizza, no bread sticks. Not a good experience, will never... More

So I ended up here because I couldnt get into another restaurant. This place was cute, the staff was so great and friendly. Loved hearing the history of the place and the place was just a great local establisment.

Great pizza. Crust is amazing. I took their suggestion of getting "everything but anchovies" and didn't regret it. And they were all extremely friendly - made me feel like family!

This is the place to go for a more interesting, spicier, greater tasting pizza. This Comstock Park Fricano version is the same basic magnificent Mrs. F. just off the boat from Italy recipe you'll find in the original Grand Haven eastside pizzeria, only somewhat expanded here. I've always been an everything but anchovies, extra crispy guy - but here you... More

It's been a while since I've dined at Fricano's...the last time in Grand Haven in the summer. This location, just north of downtown Grand Rapids, is spacious yet cozy. The same attention to detail is found in the delicious, thin crust pizza prepared in this kitchen. The novelty of eating a pizza that is cut with shears should not be... More

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

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.
