It was overall good. Not great, but good. It was very busy. Even with a reservation we waited for about 20 minutes. It was also very loud. I was with my husband, and we couldn't really have a conversation because of the noise level.
Great service. Great food. Great experience. Our waiter Aldo was great.
Best real authentic Italian Pizza this side of Italy.
This was our first date together. I made our reservation on the app and then called ahead to make sure my special request could be honored. It was! When we arrived we were greeted with a smile and taken to our out of the way table where we could continue talking and get to enjoy our dinner. It did get a little noisy but that could be expected for a Saturday night. Service was awesome and our waiter was so attentive. Will definitely be returning for future dates and or outings.
Better than I expected. Great thin crust pizza from a wood fired oven. Loved the pastas. Very reasonably prized for a city.
We love Il Canale! If you are looking for authentic Italian food, look no further!
From OZ - last night in DC. Really enjoyed the restaurant, its staff and food
Went with a couple who recommended Il Canale. Food was excellent, especially spaghetti carbonara and meat lovers pizza. Service was friendly and prompt. Felt a little rushed at outset, but when our very nice server realized our table would not turn over instantly, she left us alone. Would definitely go back.
My wife and I came here for a date. We always love going to a particular pizza place in NYC because they have amazing pizza and it just so happens they have gluten-free options. Well, we no longer need to go to NYC to have a rare date night. Il Canale is now it. We had our own private seating (maybe just a fluke for the day/time we went)...literally an entire room for ourselves. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Most importantly he actually loved, and knew intimately, the food he was telling us about. Well, okay maybe not most importantly because most importantly the food was superb. We will definitely be coming back here for years to come.
We were seated towards the back and it felt like the waitress was rushing us. We sat down, within 30 seconds she came and asked if we were ready to order. Then when we ordered appetizers, after 5 mins she asked if we were done. She did this with our main course as well. We were in by 5:45 since we got there early and out by 6:15 PM. One of the worst date locations if you want to take your time with your significant other.
