Probably would not go back. Plenty of other fantastic pizza places to select from. All service is upstairs. Not sure how wheel chair would get access.

I really liked the pizza here when I was a kid. I enjoy all types of pizza, but we always compare the pizza we're eating to Fricano's. Only thin crust. Up to five items. One size only. (I think it is a 12 inch pizza.)...More

They specialize in thin crust pizza. They only give you 5 or 6 toppings to choose from but that's all you need. Friendly staff and great pizza. Ninety percent of the time we go to Grand Haven we come to this place.

Fricano's is located in a unique, older home that has been converted into a restaurant. Breaks away from the traditional strip mall pizza joint. This place is a "classic".

I took vacation with 10 and 13 year old July, 2017 and we had a great time in Grand Haven including this delicious restaurant. The kids are still talking about it, wishing we had something like it here at home!

Never quite seen a pizza like this. It look crusty and burnt. Don’t let that fool you. This was very good pizza. Unusual style, never seen a pizza quite like it. Super tasty, and made great leftovers. I highly recommend this pizza joint, for Carriy...More

Believed to be the first pizzeria in Michigan. Thin crust, REAL cheese, the BEST pizza anywhere!! They have been here since 1949. The other Fricano restaurants are off-shoots of this one-the ORIGINAL
