Editorial Reviews

Il Canale is certified as a genuine Neapolitan pizzeria
Tim Carman, The Washington Post | February 13, 2012

About a year ago, the management at Il Canale in Georgetown approached the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana — the group dedicated to protecting the good name of Neapolitan pizza — about attaining the official VPN stamp for its pies. They figured it was a slam-dunk. They already had the Italian ingredients, not to mention a Neapolitan chef and an Acunto pizza oven straight from Italy.
