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.

Understand that this is not a Little Ceasars. Fricano makes the best thin crust pizza with fewer choices than chain pizza. I love mine WITH anchovies.

If you like thin crust pizza, this is expensive but good -- spicy and flavorful. There's only one size, however, and toppings are EXTREMELY limited. Also, the restaurant is noisy and crowded, and the service -- well, it's "well-meaning" at best. Be prepared to ask for silverware, refills on drinks (not free, by the way), etc., and don't expect service... More

We walked in not knowing where to go or how to order, no one around to help us. So we go to the counter to place our order and they say go sit down, so we it down and wait for a server to finally help us. Poor service, greasy pizza, no bread sticks. Not a good experience, will never... More

Great pizza. Crust is amazing. I took their suggestion of getting "everything but anchovies" and didn't regret it. And they were all extremely friendly - made me feel like family!

This is the place to go for a more interesting, spicier, greater tasting pizza. This Comstock Park Fricano version is the same basic magnificent Mrs. F. just off the boat from Italy recipe you'll find in the original Grand Haven eastside pizzeria, only somewhat expanded here. I've always been an everything but anchovies, extra crispy guy - but here you... More
