Another West Seattle restaurant opening: Pizzeria 22 on Monday

June 21, 2011 at 3:45 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle restaurants | 12 Comments

Next week in West Seattle – two days, two restaurant openings. We broke the news earlier that A Terrible Beauty plans to open in The Junction next Tuesday (June 28), 11 am; now we’ve just confirmed that Pizzeria 22, Cary Kemp‘s new wood-fired pizzeria in the Admiral District, is planning to open Monday (June 27) at 4 pm (barring any last-minute snags). He’s been in business with a mobile wood-fired-pizza oven, and now his dream of owning his own restaurant is coming true. It will be all-ages; the menu and hours are at; here’s our original report from last January, when he signed the lease at 4213 SW College, a few doors east of California SW. Thanks to Kim for the opening-date tip! (April photo of Cary Kemp & imported oven, by Stephanie Chacharon for WSB)


  1. Noticed the ‘Pizzeria’ neon sign was up when walking nearby last night; can’t wait for it to open!

  2. Yep, I’m the nosy pizza-hound who poked her head in the shop yesterday and asked. It looks great, reminds me of Via Tribunali in layout (long bar leads back to pizza oven, row of tables against the other wall). I’m looking forward to having our OWN wood-fired pizza just down the block!

  11. strolled by tonite and saw picnic benches out front (nice ones too!) on the double wide sidewalk. The front door was open so I peeked inside – it was jammed packed! But, alas, ’twas a private party. Still, Very nice greeting from the staff at the door. The “vibe” appeared polished and toward the upscale. Congrats to neighborhood!
