You either like Fricano's pizza, or you don't. The vast majority of people do, voting Fricano's the #1 pizza in West Michigan in 2013. Many of us had our first Fricano's experience in high school, standing in line waiting to get into the tavern in Grand Haven. 50 years and hundreds of pizzas later, we still need a monthly fix, as do our kids and grandkids! And although we loyal patrons have changed a little over the decades, Fricano's ingredients, quality and taste have thankfully remained the same. If you haven't indulged yet, do so soon. But be warned ... Fricano's pizza is addictive!

Atmosphere is pretty basic: Older 70s style cafeteria restaurant converted to Pizza place. Excellent pizza. Very thin crispy crust with lots of herbs and seasoning on top. A lot more than just sauce, cheese and toppings.

I cannot say enough about the staff here. They were super attentive, and made our visit pretty enjoyable. After that, there isn't a lot more to boast about. I like the pizza here, but i do think it is a little costly for what you get. It is ten bucks for a thin crust pizza, which feeds one, and toppings are very "classic" (I.E. limited).

This pizza is amazing! I love that they now have a restaurant on the NW side of Grand Rapids instead of having to drive to the lakeshore every time I am having a craving for their pizza!!

Some people are really loyal customers of this small chain. They have an interesting business model, I guess. Small pizzas, somewhat greasy, limited choices and an atmosphere that does not thrill anybody is a good description. On our first visit we did not know about the no refill policy on drinks (amazing when you think about it) but the second visit drink refills were offered. Someone else picked up the tab, so I do not know if the second round of drinks was free or not. Waitress was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We will return, not sure when.
