Il Canale is a family-owned and family-friendly restaurant and is home to great memories for locals and visitors alike.

Awesome thin-crust wood-fired oven pizza, made in an oven imported from Italy. They expanded the space a few years ago to accommodate the popularity while maintaining the noteworthy charm. They even offer cheeseless pizza for your non-dairy or very picky kids.

 Beyond the pizza, they have great pasta dishes to make every kid smile and are sure to use the finest Italian ingredients, as well as organic flour, which makes their caregivers smile too. Everyone leaves il Canale happy.

If you're looking for dessert after your meal, Georgetown Cupcake is nearby and is a favorite for locals and visitors alike. Rose Park Recreation Center isn't too far away, so if you need a run around before or after your meal head that way. It's a fifteen-minute walk so it's helpful to have a car.
