Love fricanos pizza, but tonight was very disappointing. Something was off with the cheese, bad off! It left a bad taste in my mouth for a couple hours. Maybe to much of something in the cheese? Idk but it was bad

A unique, thin crust pizza with incredible and unique flavor. It's definitely a pizza we will not forget and one we will crave long after leaving Grand Haven. Can't wait to have it again.

Whenever I’m in town visiting family, I always make sure to go to the Grand Haven Fricano’s. No frills or fanciness there - it’s as it was many years ago. And that’s what makes the place perfect. They don’t need to strive for anything beyond...what they do at the GH location. The wait staff are all lovely, and the thin crust pizza comes out steaming hot. We had well done this time and it was absolute perfection. Fricano’s and a cold beer - they just go together. I’m already dreaming about my next visit there.More

Worst pizza ever. We were looking for a pizza spot in Grand Haven. My mom remembered FrIcano’s from years past. They only offer one size. A 12”pizza. Your choices are cheese, pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms and green pepper. The crust was like cardboard. Barely any...red sauce. When our pizza was delivered to the table we thought we had someone else’s pizza as we could only see mushrooms and sausage. The mushrooms were not fresh and limited cheese. No taste. We tried to doctor it up with salt, pepper, and red pepper. It didn’t help. We have eaten all over the world and this is not a place I could recommend in good conscience. Try Pizza Hut or Jets.More

Fricano's is the best pizza place in Grand Haven. It has been in the same location for 70+ years. The menu is the same as it's always been and the pizza's are just like they were when I was growing up!

The crust is a little thicker that a business card, plenty of toppings. The service was good. There is a very limited menu; pizza and beverages. I fall in the category of liking it, not my favorite but very good.
