Terrible service and worst food I’ve had. The lasagna was floating in oil. Pizza is soggy and not good. Salad was average.

Being a Neapolitan, I guess I know what I’m talking about when I say that Il Canale offers real neapolitan pizza. The secret might be the mozzarella cheese they are somehow able to ship from Italy. Pasta is cooked “al dente” and even desserts taste...More

Delicious pizza and very friendly service, easily one of the better pizza places I've been to in DC. Our waiter was from Sicily and provided great recommendations. I had the Diavola pizza with salami, delicious!

The food was good and the tactic to lure us in with free pizza tastings worked. The food was great as well and we were not disappointed.

We have dined here many times and just had a very memorable evening with friends eating “family style” with great Neapolitan pizza, delicious gnocchi, seafood linguine, moist meatballs, and assorted deserts—the cannoli and tiramisu were favorites at the table. The Italian Cabernet was a perfect...More

Located in the heart of Georgetown, il Canale offers the most authentic Neapolitan pizza in DC, thin-crust made by our Italian pizzaiolos cooked in a wood-fired oven imported directly from Italy. The kitchen offers a menu that brings our native country to your table with every selection-antipasti, pastas, seafood, meat, fresh Bufala mozzarella from Italy, and so much more. The attractive blue-lit, full bar specializes in carefully selected Italian wines. In warm weather, dine alfresco at the sidewalk tables or on the roof-top terrazza overlooking the Georgetown scene. Be sure to check out our lunch menu, featuring three delicious new paninis made with our fresh bread baked instantly in our wood fire brick oven and four new pasta items. Our happy hour, from 4-6 pm Monday-Friday, features not only reduced wine, beer, and Italian aperitivi, but also amazing homemade items for extremely reasonable prices! (Happy Hour restricted to bar area). Wheelchair accessible. GlutenFree options are available
