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.
Directions: In that 31st St., is known as Georgetown's Little Italy, DON'T be confused. If coming down 31st from "M" toward the Georgetown waterfront, il Canale is the 2nd Italian restaurant on the left side. If coming up 31st from the waterfront, il Canale is the first Italian restaurant on the right side. It's the best pizza restaurant!
The kitchen, led by Naples-born Antonio Biglietto, offers a menu that brings our native country to your table with every selection—antipasti, pastas, seafood, meat, fresh Bufala mozzarella from Italy, and so much more. The attractive blue-lit, full bar specializes in carefully selected 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 in our wood fire brick oven.
Our happy hour, from 4-7 pm Monday-Friday, features not only reduced-priced wine, beer, and Italian aperitivi, but also amazing homemade items for extremely reasonable prices! (Happy Hour restricted to bar area).
