Serving up authentic Italian cuisine, Il Canale boasts a full range of tasty and uncomplicated dishes from southern Italy. Freshness is the name of the game: the vine ripe tomatoes, basil, and Buffalo mozzarella arrive once a week, and breads and pastries are made on the spot. A fifth-generation Italian pizza “master," Enrico Sautto works magic on the Napolitano-imported, wood-fired oven, turning out more than a dozen thin-crust styles. For an appetizer, choose three antipastos or splurge on the homemade focaccia. If there’s room for dessert, opt for the Zeppole Con Zabaglione (fried dough with Zabaglione cream).
