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).

"Mediocre restaurant that you hate to stumble into when you are visiting from out of town. I should have done more research. The 2nd floor is less noisy than the 1st floor. There is a "rooftop" outside section on the 2nd floor. I recommend you do more research before you get hungry."

"Our meals were very good, but the portion size of pasta dishes is much smaller than what one would find elsewhere in the US or in Italy for that matter. For ~$20 a plate for pasta, one should be left filled by the meal. We were not. Service was fine, but nothing special."

"Il canale seems to have a following, and has been very busy the few times I have walked by, so I made a reservation for a first try after having seen a movie around the block. The scene appeared chaotic at first but our reservations were honored immediately. The service was reasonably attentive and friendly. We ordered salads and pizza. The food was good, but nothing special. The salads were very lightly dressed, but bordered on tasteless. The pizzas were good, but the bottom crust was quite soggy. For similar pizzas, there are better options in town."

"A great place for authentic Neapolitan pizza on any day of the week. Apart from their pizza the Caesar salad is one of the best around town, with just the right amount of dressing and good to share as a starter. Only wish it had more / better outdoor seating so you can enjoy pizza al fresco in warmer months!"

"We had a 7:45 reservation because that's all they had available. When we got there the place was more than half empty which annoyed me because I was with my son. We would of loved to dine earlier. The atmosphere was so-so. Our server was very nice.
The food came out way too fast and the portions were weak. The pasta was average so if you go, get the pizza."

"We ate at Il Canale a few years ago (before it expanded) and looked forward to a second visit. A few things left us quite disappointed: (1) we ordered an appetizer and a main course to share; they were brought at the same time and the waiter never stopped by to check on our order, and (2) the food was tasteless."

"We stopped here for lunch on a nice Saturday and ate on the rooftop terrace; it's a very comfortable space and nice because it's not directly on the sidewalk. We had the charcuterie platter to start and it was delicious and very generous. Our entree was the branzino with veggies prepared in parchment paper -- the fish was very moist and perfectly cooked. We finished with an excellent espresso. The service was attentive and professional. We will return."

"We decided on this restaurant during a visit to DC after our river night cruise. It was a short walk and had a fabulous experience. The owner checked on us several times and our service was great! My husband had the calzone and said it was the best he has ever had. We will be sure to visit again when in DC."

"Certainly busy/buzzy on Friday night with a loud atmosphere. Food is solid and wines by the glass are great choices, especially the better ones. The organization at the front of the house upon arrival reminds one of Italy, which could be better. Not intimate, but a good choice for Friday night dinner after work."

"Had a great dinner there while visiting our son who attends GWU. Pizza was delicious, and our server Tommy was very helpful. Not a huge menu, but clearly they are good at what they do and had something for everyone.
Definitely recommend this restaurant!

"Il Canale is our go to spot whenever we want to go on a "date" and whenever folks come to visit. The food and service is fantastic - if a little pricey, the portions, etc. are generous :).
I am glad the restaurant has expanded, but it seems to also be noisier - the price you pay, I suppose, but I'll need to factor that in next time I am with a group and need to hear folks."
