Il Canale

Located in the heart of Georgetown, il 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, led by Naples-born Antonio Biglietto, 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 new 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 4-7 pm Monday-Friday, features all drinks at 1/2 price! (Happy Hour restricted to bar area).

"We were visitng our daughter at GW for her birthday and decided to give Il Canale a try and were not dissappointed. The Stella app of Imported mozzarella and Prosciutto was perfect, we also had the homade gnocchi and a couple of the pizza's, that were top notch. The service was spot on. Match that up with drafts of Peroni and it was a good night. My only knock would be the wine prices $14-$15 dollars for a glass? That makes it the same cost or higher as the pizza, hardly worth it. I'll be back."

"Went for a catch-up-dinner with my friend. We had pizza and they were good. We sat at the tables next to the front window--other than us, all the others sitting at the window seats were couples on dates. So I guess this is usually a good place for a romantic night as well."

"If you like 2Amy's, you'll love this place (plus they take reservations so no cramming yourself into the tiny bar for an hour while you're waiting for a table). The pizzas are excellent - top quality ingredients and wood-fired, and the appetizers are great. Haven't tried anything here other than the pizza and a couple apps, so can't comment on the other stuff on the menu. The wines are decently priced."

"You won't be able to resist clearing off your plate, unless it's, say, the calzone as big as your head. Such a sweet little hideaway on a quiet Georgetown street with waiters actually from Italy! The gnocchi was an excellent bet -- as well as the complimentary canole offered because of some renovation noise. The only thing quite not up to pare was the $5 meatball add-on where you got 2 delicious, albeit smaller than hoped-for meatballs."

"There were small bugs flying around the food and one fell into wine glass, I found it when I felt something in my mouth after taking a drink of wine. It was really not pleasant. Also, flakes from the vent fell on table during dinner."

"Don't you agree? Do you think Two Amy's is better? All right, have it your way. I'll keep going to Il Canale: better pizza, better desserts, better service, better ambiance. And they're actually Italian, not an insignificant detail when you're talking about pizza."

"I was disappointed with my experience at Il Canale. I was looking forward to celebrating my birthday there with my family. Unfortunately, the table I reserved a couple days in advance was right next to the door and bar. The restaurant was crowded since it was a Saturday night, so my family and I were surrounded with people standing over us who were waiting to be seated and others who were crowding the bar. The staff that were responsible for cleaning the tables and the waiters kept bumping into me trying to get through the crowds to get to the kitchen. The last time I went to this restaurant it was smaller and the majority of the seating was in the 2nd floor in a quiet and much nicer section. I was unaware that they had expanded the restaurant. If I had known this, I definitely would have specifically requested to have been seated elsewhere. I have no complaints regarding the food, it was good but the service was not great."
