Not good for vegetarians, and much missing from menu. Good for families with young kids.
Always fantastic.with beautiful spring weather today, nothing beats Il Canale in 32st in Georgetown.
Solid Italian fare in well located Georgetown spot. Gluten free options for pizza and pasta.
My only complaint is that we had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation time. Otherwise, the service was wonderful once we were seated and the food was excellent.
The food was amazing and so was the service. Great place and would highly recommend this restaurant.
We ran late for our reservation time so we called on the way and we're told not a problem. Once we arrived we were seated promptly. Our service was attentive and our service was great. The food was amazing as usual, everything we have tried has been authentic and wonderful. We we're also checked on by management and they we're very kind and warm. For our second visit it was every bit as good as the first and we will be back for many more great date nights.
Saturday at 7:15- the place was super-crowded but they took us right to our table. Definitely important to make a reservation! Food was great and the service was fantastic!
Visiting Georgetown. We were seated between a group of about 15 teenage girls. We couldn’t even have a conversation with each other. We were in and out within 30 minutes. Disappointed we couldn’t enjoy a nice Saturday night and needless to say our date was ruined.
Nice experience, fast service for a crowded Friday night in Georgetown. The pizza was flavorful, had good options.
Setting was great, warm evening outside. Food was mediocre. Caprese salad had flavorless tomatoes, and way overpriced. Pizza nothing to write home about. Mushroom chicken was thrown together with what tasted like soup as a sauce. Frozen fries were okay.
Just not what I expected for $90 (including a few drinks). Probably won’t go back
I actually showed up a few minutes late, and asked to add a couple people to the reservation. Staff was very accommodating. My girlfriend and i shared the vegeteriana rossa pizza and the scialaitelli al frutti di mare. Everything was good.
Didn’t have to wait. Huge space. Great service. Recommendations (food and wine) from our server were on point! Great experience.
Splendid was the evening at Canale. I had a very authentic and tasty lentil soup to start. My date and I shared the tomato caprese. Two glasses of Sangiovese red wine prior to two fantastic entrees. I had the lobster stuffed ravioli and my date fettucine pasta in a light red sauce seasoned with mussels, baby clams and shrimp. Dessert was an Italian favorite cannoli and espresso. Bruno the waiter made it all happen and was knowledgeable, courteous and genuine Italian.
Carbonara was pretty weak
4th Valentine in a row
The staff and owner are welcoming. The wines are great. And the pizza is dynamite.
Il Canale was delicious and wonderful as usual. Our waitress was extremely sweet and nice. This is the best pizza in DC and better than some pizza I've had in Italy. It's great casual Italian food, sophisticated without being stuffy. My only caveat is that it's a little pricey, but that's DC for you.
Dinner with friends. We ordered Gnocchi, lasagna and connelloni, and a caprese appetizer. Everything was terrific. There was a mix up with the appetizer, but they corrected it and took it off the check. Really an excellent spot for Italian and their pizza is some of the best.
EXCELLENT service. Great outdoor dining and welcoming indoor dining experience. The pizza with the thinly shaved dried beef on it was to die for. We felt very welcomed here and the service was fantastic. Really nice location - a little private but still some good people watching.
We really like Il Canale, but last Friday was busier than normal. They seem to be booking very large parties and that affects their ability to seat regular reservations or plan accordingly. We were given a table on the 2nd floor which it is my least favorite location --- SO LOUD and unpleasant. The waitress was terrific but I could tell that the kitchen was behind and they just keep up. Not my favorite visit.
