Beer, wine, pizza with a view, that's it! Beer was cold, pizza was good. Thin crust with 6 choices of toppings. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. We would go back.

I grew up going to the original Fricano's in Grand Haven. Ted is one of the sons and has done a good job converting the old factory into a pizza restaurant and event center. If you like really, really thin pizza with limited topping choices, this is your place (and hey don't serve anything but pizza). I guess you can... More

We went here on recommendation of our hotel. Big mistake. When we arrived, we waited about 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged our presence. It was very busy, but someone, anyone, should have been manning the host stand. This place has only pizza. Thin crust, light sauced, flavorless, greasy, soggy pizza. Nothing else. No salads...nothing. I was very disappointed.

Fricano's is unique in that its whole woof menu can not only fit on a placemat, it takes more words to review than list. Fricano's has pizza, and that is it. One type of crust, 5 ingredients, mix n' match. The crust was very tasty, I thought, but the sausage was very rich and greasy. The restaurant offers a full... More

Over looking Muskegon Lake, Fricano's has been around town for a long time, Grand Haven or Muskegon tough to beat. Service is great, but the menu is small so come to eat pizza at it's Best. If you like thin crust you will be back soon!

This place has the best pizza in town. The restaurant is large and plenty of room, we have went here with large groups and just as a couple. The restaurant is on Muskegon lake so the views are great!

We have a Fricanos in Holland so I'm no stranger to their food. Though their pizzas not my favorite, I prefer a thicker crust, the pizzas still good. The service is good and the restaurant is very unique. For an evening out it was very pleasurable and would go back again.

If you want pizza, and only pizza, for dinner, this is the place to go. Located in downtown Muskegon, right on Muskegon Lake, this is a thin crust pizza place that has been around for a while. Great thin crust pizza, nice atmosphere. Prices for a pizza are mid-range and orders come quickly to your table.

If you like a no frills thin crust greasy pizza. This is it. It used to be a good cheap pizza, but not so much anymore. Now it's just a good pizza. A real good pizza. I consider it a treat to eat there. It's a nice pizzareia atmosphere too. There's no menu. You order off the placemat and there... More
