Phase 1.5 Updates: "We are not gonna be doing reservations for a while, seating is just so limited that we are just gonna be walking and will go on a waitlist when we fill up. We only have about a third of our seats right now, so we recommend getting there right at five, if you’re planning on coming later you can always call ahead and check the wait."

San Fermo, located in the conspicuous 19th century house that sits amid all the brick and cobblestone of Ballard Avenue, is a neighborhood Italian restaurant from the owners of nearby Percy’s & Co. (they also own Bimbo’s, Cha Cha, Rudy’s barbershops, and the Ace Hotel). There are seasonal dishes, Sunday farmers markets dinners, and handmade pastas, as well as Italian-American classics like chicken parm sandwiches. “People ask me, ‘What region of Italy?,’” owner Tim Baker told Seattle Metropolitan magazine. “I say, ‘New Jersey.’”
