We go here for family dinners, birthday dinners, pretty much anytime we need an excuse for great pizza. The pizza is thin crust only. They come in one size only, which is not that big. So be prepared to eat one whole pizza yourself. It is so good you will not want to share!

Fricano's is a local, family owned business. There are at least 4 locations: Holland, Grand Rapids/Alpine, Grand Haven, and Muskegon. Fricano's keeps it simple. There is only one size pizza and just a few toppings to have on your pizza. Toppings include: pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms (canned - not fresh), green peppers and anchovies. The crust is super thin and typically... More

Always happy to eat here or any of the others locations. The pizza has never let us down in 40+ years. Occasionally there may be an issue if they are swamped......and that means service may be a little slow. Never bad. Enjoy the view while waiting.

Fricanos had a good thing going in the 70's. But that was then and this is now. Why not offer a few extras that reflect current consumer tastes like salads to go with your pizza? Or how about a draught beer option? Instead, what you get is pizza, one size, and small paper plates. You gotta love the traditional Fricanos... More

For some people in the area, it's their favorite... Not mine... I asked for parmasian cheese and my request was declined.. The menu is pizza and pizza only... It would be nice to at least have a side salad available.. Top Shelf on Western Ave. has become my favorite pizza restaurant..

My nephew was married here on 11/12/16 and it was a great place although it was a little hard to find in the dark. It's set waaay back off the road. The staff was all super nice and very attentive. The food was good too. I don't live in the area but would recommend it to anyone in the area

We selected Fricano's for our group to get together for an end of summer fun hang out. The pizza is unique as they only have one size and select toppings. Made it easy for folks to order. Being from Chicago I have had to adjust my expectations. Our server was great and allowed us to stay a bit longer to... More

Six of us went to Fricano's and got caught up with each other. The waitress was right there and got our drinks. The place was packed because the GOP was using the conference room and it was packed. Our pizzas eight for six guys and with in fifteen minutes they were there and delicious. For real Italian pizza that's the... More

We heard they had great pizza, so we finally checked it out. The resturant is spacious with a great view of Muskegon Lake. The prices were good and the service was excellent.

The owner, Ted, went out of his way to personally seat us. Though the restaurant was busy he took a few minutes to talk with us. Service was exceptional as was the view over Muskegon Lake. Will definitely return.

Thank terry p
