Pizza was amazing!
No complimentary olive oil and bread or bread and butter for the table. Italian restaurants usually serve olive oil parmesan and bread complimentary .
Easy to get a last-minute reservation and food was fantastic!
Really nice neighborhood restaurant and pizza place. Super busy and very efficient at getting people in an out. Food and wine was excellent. Will definitely be back
Great food..,,fun spot with friendly service!
Il Canale is an amazing Italian Pizzeria. As a born-Italian I could not be happier to have Il Canale in Georgetown! Service is superb and food amazing. What do you want more? Love it
Also was our server and was amazing. We had a wonderful date night and Aldo recommended a very good bottle of cab for us. Everything was perfect
Incredible service, great drinks and a perfect location.
Great place! Excellent pizza
The best Italian food I have had in a restaurant!
Il Canale is a great place for friends and family. Even though Il Canale has a casual ambiance, the quality of the food is high. The place has wonderful thin crust pizza that leaves you feeling satisfied and surprisingly good meatballs.
Great food pasta is amazing as always! Waitress was extreme nice and recommended great wine!
Stick with the pizza (I guess). This place has pretty good reviews but seems like it's for their pizzas. We order a pasta dish and a steak dish. Both dishes were way overpriced for the quality and taste (specially the steak). Service was good.
Best Italian food I’ve had outside of Naples! Don’t miss the pizza!!
Packed and honestly not sure why. Good but not great.
Delicious food at reasonable prices (especially Georgetown!)!!
Crowded, rushed, food average
When we arrived at the restaurant, one of the workers was giving away free pizza, which was AMAZING!!! As we had read about the gnocchi, we ordered that, the lobster ravioli, and 2 salads. We also both tried drinks off the specialty menu—Everything was fantastic!!!
The service was wonderful too. My only complaint was that the different courses were served too quickly (in the middle of the previous one). Nonetheless, my mom and I definitely plan to return soon!!!
Couldn’t have dinner. They booked a lot people together at the same time.
Authentic Italian food , exceptional service.These folks really care about making their customers happy!
Celebrated my birthday with family, a fun evening!
The greeter immediately showed us to what he said was the only quiet table. It was out of the way, and we could converse normally. We were very grateful for his giving us that table without even being asked. Our server was wonderful, responding quickly to our every request. Three of us ordered the lobster ravioli. Afterwards all I could remember was the overly tomato-y sauce. I could not remember having tasted any lobster. The tiramisu was fabulous.
Amazing food and service!
Al dente perfection! We were blown away by the value of this place. Pizza samples up front began an evening that pleased even the palette of my pure northern Italian roots. The bread was delicious, menu options plentiful, Chianti good at a moderate price. Food came out surprisingly quickly -- authentic & delicious.
The table at which we were seated was next to an extremely loud group. I wish the management had offered a quieter location to accommodate us, but that is no big deal.
Best DOC pizza around. Their Regina pizza is simply amazing!
It was great. Sat by the window. Food was good
Authentic italian. The food was delicious.
Fantastico. Pizza eccellente. Servizio ottimo. Locale molto tranquillo e curato.
As a visitor to DC, I wasn't expecting such a crowd. Tons of people were waiting for a table, however I was seated at my reservation time exactly. We got a nice table, near the back where it was quiet. The service was impeccable. Everything timed just right. And the food was exceptional. I can't wait to get back there!
What a great dinner.
Salads were excellent. Different meals at the table, pizza, bronzino, gnocchi and lasagna. Everyone thought it was excellent. Service was great - Aldo was awesome!
Perfect! Could not wait to eat with our boys after we tried it last year. Pizza was delicious, antipasti was beautiful. One of our favorite DC spots. Make a rezzie!
The lobster ravioli was perfect. Great place to have a nice dinner.
Fabulous food; terrific service. They NEVER disappoint!
Perfect location and service.
Excellent food and wines!!!
We had great service and wine!
This restaurant is buzzing with energy. The service was excellent. The waitress was attentive and recommended an excellent bottle of wine. The pizza was very tasty and thin crust. We like it crispier on the bottom. I would go back and ask for the pizza to be well done.
As advertised...great food, fun atmosphere and our server Patrick was exceptional.
Wonderful food! Delicious desserts! Would highly recommend.
Lovely dinner! We made reservations for 6:15 and got there about 15 minutes early. They were able to take us on back and we had quick service. I ordered the Gnocchi with Bolognese (I also added meatballs, what can I say, I wanted them!) and a glass of wine. The meal was served hot and was excellent. The entire table was pleased with their meal and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
