We arrived at 9 PM on 05/19/17 and I am so sorry we stoped into this location. We tried to order and the rudeness of the waitress should have told me to get up and leave, but we are from Arizona and had family coming in for dinner with us. We were informed that they close at 10:00 and we... More

Fricano's is a West Michigan iconic restaurant. The original one in Grand Haven has the most history but the one on Alpine Avenue does a great job duplicating the pizza. It is unlike anything you have had compared to traditional pizza. Thin and flavorful it is something you need to try to truly experience. Doug the owner is a great... More

Everything about the visit was average. The wait, the food quality, the price...all average. It isn't top on my return list, but I wouldn't not go there again.

We went here due to the large amount of cars in the parking lot. People are drawn to it because this place is a summer vintage car hang out. The crust was paper thin with almost no flavor. There was NO SAUCE. Very disappointing.

I had the pizza with everything minus anchovies plus the hot peppers. Amazing as always. Ingredients are fresh and flavorful. We had the meatballs and sauce with garlic toast. The meatballs and sauce were not hot but tasted good. I wish they would of been hot with fresh Parmesan on top. Owner did come around and greet everyone.

My husband, myself, and friends decided to eat at the Fricano's in Comstock Park on a Saturday evening. There was no wait, pizza arrived quickly, and was delicious. We each ordered a different pizza and all were wonderful, with plenty to take home. Our server made the evening a pleasant experience as well!

We had a great dinner on Friday, November 25, Although, we have been to several other Fricanos' locations in West Michigan, we found this location to be a new favorite. The service was friendly and the menu had added choices to accommodate many different tastes in pizza and pasta. Although, I ordered the ‘tried and true’ Original Fricanos Pizza Pie... More

If you want to score points with your girl friend or wife, take her to Fricano's. The owner is always there and he watches over to ensure you are served the world's best, thin crust pizza , She will like you more for giving her the best.
