Located in the heart of Georgetown, il Canale offers the most authentic Neapolitan pizza in DC, thin-crust made by our Italian pizzaiolos cooked in a wood-fired oven imported from Italy. The kitchen offers a menu that brings our native country to your table with every selection—antipasti, pastas, seafood, meat, fresh bufala mozzarella from Italy, and much more. The attractive blue-lit, full bar specializes in select 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 lunch menu, featuring delicious paninis made with our fresh bread baked instantly in our wood fire brick oven and four new pasta items. Our happy hour, from 3-6 pm Monday-Friday, features all drinks at 1/2 price! (Happy Hour restricted to bar area).
Coming down from M Street, il Canale is the 2nd restaurant on the left.

    Filled with the younger crowd out late on a Saturday night. The pizza was very good and the wine list was moderately priced.

    Very good Italian food! We ate here because they had gnocchi on the menu and it didn’t disappoint! Our friends got the lasagna and they said it was incredible. Lobster ravioli was rich, and the fried mozzarella was delish!

    I wish I could give it six starts. We started with a great arangina then had the mushroom ravioli and branzino. Topped it off with two mini cannoli. Only thing was a guy right next to us, alone was yelling on his phone so we asked to be moved which they accommodated us right away. He spent his whole time on the phone. No wonder he's alone! Lol

    Excellent food. Seafood pasta and lobster ravioli were spot on. The pasta was handmade and perfectly cooked.
