1. Il Canale 1063 31st St NW, Washington, DC 20007

Georgetown’s il Canale specializes in Southern Italian cuisine, relying on imported Italian ingredients, including mozzarella di bufala, San Marzano tomatoes, and 00 flour. Its gourmet pizzas get blasted in a wood-fired oven imported straight from Naples, and the result is a crispy, chewy, yeasty crust with perfect bubbly char. Keep in mind this is true Napoletana style, so if you’re not a folder, these are definitely knife and fork affairs. This modern, two-story 150-seater has a neon-lit bar downstairs and seating on both levels.
