    The Bruschetta and the Margarita pizza were both delicious. Plus, they serve Kir Royale, which is one of my favorite specialty drinks! It's a little pricey there, but the food was good.

    This is an amazing authentic Italian restaurant. The mussels and the bruschetta were great. We ordered the Le Regina pizza and it was amazing! I had my first Negroni. I can't wait for the Cannoli!!!!

    Hearty food that is both filling and delicious. The staff is also very helpful. Better atmosphere for groups/dates/work, and very popular among Georgetown students. Good meal for about $25-$30.

    Pizza is amazing, calamari is incredible. Il Canale was recommended to me by a friend from Italy, so if you're looking for authentic Italian food, this is the place.

    An evening with friends to be repeated as soon as possible. Everything was very good, healthy and genuine. The final unforgettable dessert was Tiramisù, Caprese and Sicilian Cannoli!

    My love for Italian food is never ending! Delicious wines and good pizza! They can improve the crust but great flavors!

    Good for large groups. Good pizza, good pasta. Has a couple of seafood entrees that looked good. Has a couple of Italian beers on draft. A little pricey, but what isn't in this neighborhood.

    The Regina Pizza is absolutely delicious!!! And the Caprese is the best you'll ever have because of their amazingly fresh and flavorful mozzarella🍕🍕🍕

    If you're in Washington, DC this is definitely a place to go. Best authentic Italian I've had in ages. All Italian staff and amazing food, even some Italian football playing

    La Regina pizza was delicious. Lots of prosciutto and very meaty. Georgetown pizza doesn't have a lot of sausage but the sausage was great.

    Amazing Italian place. The pizza here is true Neopolitan style. Certified! And tastes amazing. The calamari is superb as well. And try the Italian Manhattan.

    Great pizza and great pasta too! The San Marzano tomatoes and the buffalo mozzarella make the difference. And the price is reasonable. The best in DC.

    Good food but the noise level is incredibly high. For large very loud parties only. Just the 2 of you? Find a quieter spot.

    Possibly the best Italian restaurant I've been to. Staff is incredible and the calamari and penne are second to none

    Chicken Marsala was delicious and the cannoli was to die for. Chocolate cake was too dry but the cannoli definitely made up for it!

    Absolutely phenomenal pizza, one of only 60 restaurants in the US to have official VPN certification, meaning completely authentic Neapolitan pizza. You'll taste the difference.

    Loved the appetizers and one of the best sour apple martini, but pizza with anchovy was way too salty.

    Very poor ingredients on the pizza & if you want to add any kind of meats (with ad cost) they bring it in a separate plate and you have to add it to the pizza by yourself ! I'll not come back again!
