“The Lake View Is Better Than the Pizza!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

What a disappointment: Canned mushrooms & frozen green pepper pieces atop a lukewarm, paper-thin pizza. Sad when a restaurant's view is better than its food. Recommendation: IF you eat there, order either plain CHEESE or pepperoni.

“YUM!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Love Fricano's Pizza - thin crust and tastes unlike anything else! My kids love it too, it's the only pizza they ask for!

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Not much of a selection, but it makes up for it in taste. I ate the whole medium pizza by myself. Did not intend to, just could not stop eating it!

“Its Pizza!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Fricano's is no nonsense thin crust pizza, with or without anchovies. The first time you visit you may wonder why the servers are just OK or there are are no salads or decaff coffee. Its Pizza!!

Lower your expectations of the word "restaurant" and just enjoy the food. I took 6 people, everyone had their own pizza and a drink for a total of $84.

“Very Thin Crust, Just Pizza”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The texture of the crust on this pizza is more like a thin cracker, not soft, thin dough. The restaurant only serves pizza, not even salads. If you have a hungry family, you may want to go somewhere that serves a complete meal. It was puzzling that the restaurant did not have any Michigan wines even though they are surrounded by Michigan wine areas.
