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.

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
