Description
Voted "Best Pizza in Michigan" in 2011 by Facebook/Twitter Fans in the unofficial Pure Michigan poll. The Crown Jewel of pizza parlors. A landmark that brought pizza to Michigan in 1949. Fricano's pizza is claimed by thousands of serious customers to be the best pizza they've ever had. Fricano's pizza remains the original and most famous pizza and pizzeria in Michigan. In 1949 the late Cosimo (Gus) Fricano, founded what is believed to be the first pizzeria in Michigan, Fricano's Pizza Tavern, in Grand Haven with the original thin crust pizza pie. What started as an old boarding house in the late 1800's became the first restaurant to serve pizza in the entire state. Some of Michigan's largest newspapers have made this claim. On August 21, 1949 Gus Fricano bought the Ottawa Tavern and soon renamed it Fricano's Tavern and from there, launched one of the most famous little success stories West Michigan has ever known.
