What Our Guests Are Saying

Fans feel “close to Naples” at this recently expanded Georgetown Italian known for its “delicious” pastas, “good wine selection” and “distinctive” wood-fired pizza that’s D.O.C. certified by Neapolitan authorities; in sum, this “neighborhood gem” is “perfectly suited for a date night” or spending quality time “with friends.”


My wife and I met 6 years ago on a date that same day owner said come back here on your anniversary it was cute and hey it worked out and we did. We love coming back as often as we can. The service was great, the margarita pizza is excellent, all the ingredients are from Italy and we wanted to recreate the pizzas we ate in Italy. Overall great experience there is a reason why they have been great for so many years. Can't wait to go back again for our anniversary or even sooner


I went to Il Canale on my very first night on my move to DC and I have to say it is hard to compare to! Incredible food, incredible service. I have been dreaming about it since I had it and so had my sister who was helping me move from out of town. When my family came to visit it was the only “must do” on my list! Was just as pleased the second time. Can’t say enough wonderful things! The staff really makes you feel welcomed and everyone is very knowledgeable on Italian cuisine and Italian culture. They definitely know what they are doing and I will be back soon.


The food, ambience, and employees go above and beyond. The food can be great at any restaurant but it's the feeling you leave with that sets this one apart. You truly feel welcome and appreciated for being their guest.


It was Father’s Day so I took my dad to his favorite restaurant, Il Canale, every time I go the food seems to be better and better. Great Italian food and wonderful servers and managers.


Always wonderful! My teenage son even commented that he cannot understand what makes the food so outstanding at Il Canale... he said it looks like other pizza and pasta he has eaten, but it tastes so much better!!


Have been coming here for years for friendly service and reliably tasty food. It is truly a neighborhood gem and our favorite place for a casual dinner.


Found this awesome place while visiting Georgetown this weekend. Cozy fun place with great staff and tasty options!


Great find in DC. Classic crafted pizza. (Outstanding GF menu). The servings are huge! The flavors complement each other, seafood and the sause. Meatball with gravy and bruschetta for an appetizer was perfect suggestion by waiter. Peroni beer and a nice chianti. Cannoli dessert!!!
