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

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.

I guess you either like or don't like Fricano, I fall in the later! Paper plate thin crust, toppings just ok and if you like greasy this is the place for you. Don't order everything, the anchovies came in with the Mayflower, yuk!

Pizza was good, but was not "crispy" like they said. Atmosphere was just ok, kinda dated. The ONLY down fall is "NO shaker Parmesan cheese"... NEVER heard of such a thing. We would definitely go back but possibly pack my on Parmesan.

Loved this pizza here! There isn’t a menu. It’s just one pizza but it’s delicious! Not your typical chain pizza place. Great flavor, crust is great. Really enjoyed it!

I was so looking forward to eating here as it is a local favorite and I do love pizza. I like the vibe and very simple approach. No menus to speak of, paper plates, red-checkered table cloths and they obviously have the longtime following of...More
