“Delicious thin crust pizza, just like Grand Haven and this location has a full menu of Italian options. The owner and staff are very friendly. The atmosphere is kitchy/low key but the pizza is superb."

“Best Pizza Anywhere”. Only one size, limited toppings. That being said its the best pizza anywhere. Very thin crust with very good quality pepperoni and sausage. Had a lot of pizza around the USA and I would rank Fricanos right up top! "
- Jud J, June 7, 2015, tripadvisor.com
“Best pizza in Michigan”. The Fricanos have taken an old business and reperposed it as a pizza restaurant. Artifacts and pictures of their native country. including an antique wine press and casks are displayed around the dinning room. The pizza is more like what you would find served in Italy than the common American pizza. While pizza is the main attraction there are other dishes on the menu. Fricano's is a family owned chain with Grand Rapids, Grand Haven, Holland, and Muskegon locations. They have been our favorite for many years. .Mostly of the time you can be seated promptly. If you come on Friday or Saturday evening expect to wait "

The Incredible Fricano's Pizza

The Fricano faithful can’t stand to go long without enjoying our pizza and some have actually become a sort of "Evangelist" who want others to know "The Truth" of where the World's greatest pizza resides.
The incredible Fricano's pizza has stood the test of time. Our pizzas, including the EBA Everything but Anchovies, are completely unchanged for over 60 years.
The reputation we have achieved and mystical nature of our pizza and history comes from our customers knowing and supporting the best pizza that can be made, and they are thankful that we have never changed our pizza recipe or quality of ingredients.

Fricano's Pizza is a Michigan made product by a Michigan made family!

It's an authentic Italian recipe like none other anywhere on Earth.  A blend of just the right amounts of the best pizza cheese money can buy, spices, and toppings baked to a golden brown, crispy texture to create this unforgettable flavor and taste.  A-1 pepperoni made exclusively for Fricano's, USDA Grade A Italian sausage (seasoned and mixed in-house,) imported canned mushrooms, diced green peppers and anchovies deliver the delicious and authentic Italian flavor sought after by so many pizza lovers for so many years.  Don't ask a Fricano what kind of cheese it is 'cause you won't get an answer since it is one of the secret ingredients that makes this pizza pie so unique.  Just the smell alone as it bakes away in the oven will assure you that it is truly a special blend not used by many if any others at all.  It's a recipe Doug Fricano is very proud of.  His Father and Grandmother worked some real magic in Gramma's kitchen over 60 years ago.

West Michigan's First Pizza

In 1949 the late Cosimo (Gus) Fricano, founded what is believed to be the first pizzeria in West Michigan, Fricano's Pizza Tavern, in Grand Haven with the original thin crust pizza pie. 
Doug Fricano's goal is that every original pizza baked here at the Comstock Park Restaurant since 2003 is identical and as good as any pizza ever served in Grand Haven.
In fact as the son of the founder Gus Fricano, maintaining his Fathers original recipe and quality of pizza was also his most important calling for the 14 years that Doug ran the Grand Haven Fricano's (the best years of his life).
